Friday Night Pizza Night

Since it's finally Friday AND Halloween weekend, I feel like that calls for sharing my most favorite low-carb pizza recipe of life. Yes, you read that correctly, life

The whole pizza is about 10g of net carbs which is very workable in our <20g net carbohydrates per day plan that we have been sticking to. I am stuffed after two slices which is about 1/4 of the pie. This pizza is simply to die for, whether you top it with your favorite low-carb/low-sugar traditional red sauce or whip up an easy, virtually no carb white sauce.. It's even good cold. Not that I'd know that or anything..

This is the perfect pizza for your Friday night and is so incredibly easy to prepare! I mean, how delicious does this look? 

Fat Head Pizza Crust 

1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese 
3/4 cup almond flour
2 tbsp. cream cheese
1 egg, beaten 
Garlic powder, to taste 

Preheat oven to 425
1. Put mozzarella and cream cheese in a microwavable bowl and microwave for one minute. Stir and replace in microwave for another 30 seconds (caution! It'll be really hot)
2. Stir in beaten egg and add almond flour to combine into a "paste" 
3. Wet hands and spread "dough" thin on parchment paper. (I place my parchment paper on a pizza pan) It should spread evenly with dough-like consistency. (If stringy, then your cheese has hardened too much- put it back in the microwave for about 20 seconds).
4. Using a fork, poke holes all over the dough to avoid bubbling
5. Sprinkle with garlic powder
6. Put in 425*F oven. After about 8 minutes, check the dough and poke holes where any large bubbles may be. Continue cooking for a TOTAL of 10-12 minutes or until golden on top. (I usually stay around 10 to avoid it getting too crusty on the bottom).
7. Top with your favorite sauce and toppings and then cook for 8-9 minutes until cheese browns 

I opted for a white sauce this time which I put together simply by combining about 1/4 cup unsweetened cashew milk, 3 oz. cream cheese, 2 tbs. butter and lots of garlic and fresh cracked black pepper in a pan and stirring for about 5 minutes or until thick/the consistency of your liking. 

The ingredients I use for our pizzas changes by what I have on hand. Since I love white pizzas with chicken, this black garlic chicken breast was a no-brainer. Garlic + chicken + white sauce? Heavenly. 

Doesn't that look divine? Out of all of the pizza crusts I've tried on this low-carb journey, this is the one my husband and I love the most and keep coming back to simply because it tastes like the pizza we love and miss. 

The first time I made it, I added traditional pizza toppings and a low-carb/low sugar pizza sauce and it was absolutely perfect. I'm fairly certain you could add anything on top and it would be perfection! 

A little side note: I've been reading about Fat Head Pizza Crust bread sticks and they sound divine. Instead of adding toppings as in the original recipe, once out of the oven, brush melted garlic butter on the top, sprinkle with cheese and put back in the oven for 3-4 minutes. I have't tried them, but they are next on my list. 

If you make it, comment below with a picture of your creation! If you have Instagram, post your pizza picture with #bluebonnetpizzanight. I would love to see how you and your family enjoy your pizza!

Happy Friday, friends!
