Ingredients
  

For Almond Flour Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp Cream cheese cubed
  • 1 large Egg beaten
  • 3/4 cup Wholesome Yum Blanched Almond Flour

For Coconut Flour Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp Cream cheese cubed
  • 2 large Eggs whisked
  • 1/3 cup Wholesome Yum Coconut Flour

Instructions
 

  • Prep: Preheat your oven to 425°F (218°C). Line your baking sheet or pizza pan with parchment paper, or for optimal results, preheat a pizza stone and prepare the crust on a pizza peel lined with parchment.
  • Mix Flour and Eggs: Combine the egg(s) with your choice of almond or coconut flour in a large bowl or food processor for a fluffier crust.
  • Melt Cheeses: Mix shredded Mozzarella and cream cheese in a bowl. Microwave for 90 seconds, stirring halfway. Stir until smooth. Alternatively, use a double boiler.
  • Combine: Blend the melted cheeses with the flour mixture until uniform. Microwave for 10-15 seconds if the cheese hardens before fully mixing.
  • Form Crust: Spread the dough on your prepared pan or peel to your desired thickness. Poke holes to prevent bubbling.
  • Bake: Initial bake for 6 minutes, then poke more holes and bake for an additional 3-7 minutes until golden.
  • Make Keto Pizza: Top the pre-baked crust with your chosen sauce and toppings. Bake directly on the stone or rack for about 10 minutes. Broil for 1-2 minutes to brown the cheese if desired.
