Our recipe developers have put together a variety of pizza recipes that provide the same flavors you know and love from your favorite local pizza joint.
Here are six recipes for a low-carb pizza night:
When you think of low-carb pizza, the first thing that probably comes to mind is cauliflower crust. The trendy cruciferous veggie is now known worldwide for its low-carb superpowers. From faux mashed potatoes to rice, cauliflower can take the place of many high-carb ingredients. We use it as the base of our pizza crust, combined with shredded mozzarella cheese and Italian seasoning. It’s a simple yet impressive recipe that even the kiddos will be asking for!
Pizza for breakfast is underrated. Turn your pizza night into a pizza morning with our Breakfast Naan Pizza recipe! Featuring scrambled eggs, bacon and shredded cheddar cheese, you can enjoy the flavors of your favorite omelet on hot and cheesy slice of pie. The crispy almond flour crust can also take on classic pizza toppings like mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce and fresh herbs.
Bring new life to classic stuffed mushrooms with your favorite pizza toppings! You only need six simple ingredients to make this hearty pizza dinner. Clean out portobello mushroom caps and load them up with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. Top them with nutritional yeast for extra cheesy flavor, along with some Italian seasoning and sliced tomatoes. Pop them in the oven at 375 degrees for 30 minutes before serving.
Portobello mushrooms also make the perfect burger buns! Learn more about this low-carb bread swap at the link below:
Just like cauliflower, zucchini has quickly made its way to the mainstream. It has become extremely popular in the form of noodles, lasagna, chips and fries. While we love putting it through a spiralizer, hollowing it out and stuffing it with pizza toppings is definitely a new favorite trick! Our Pizza Zucchini Boats taste just like a slice of supreme pizza but without all the carbs.
This next pizza recipe is probably the most unique one yet! Instead of using a low-carb veggie as the crust, we use a creative combination of ground chicken, shredded mozzarella cheese, egg, grated Parmesan, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Grab a slice of this smart yet satisfying pie for a filling dinner that’s packed with protein.
You can’t go wrong with veggies! From the crust to the toppings and everything in between, you’ll find plenty of low-carb veggies in this pie. The crispy cauliflower crust is covered in crushed tomatoes, onions, mushrooms and tomato slices. We also add delicious and nutritious flavor with oregano and garlic! Shredded mozzarella cheese is added to both the crust and toppings for an easy, cheesy recipe that’s sure to become a household favorite.
