Chicago-Style Deep Dish Pizza
« on: March 15, 2019, 10:15:51 PM »
When you're craving some Chicago-style Deep dish, but need to keep it low carb, what do you do?

Start with a Fathead style crust:
7 net carbs for the whole crust.

1/4 cup Shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup Almond Flour
1 large Egg
1 TBSP Olive Oil.
large pinch Salt

Melt the cheese in a microwave for 20 - 30 seconds just until cheese is melted. Be careful not to overcook it or it won't mix in with the other ingredients!  Mix everything together with a fork until everything is well incorporated and a sticky dough has formed.  Use an oiled cup to press the dough into a 8" cast iron (or pizza) pan. Prick holes in the base of the crust with a fork and pre-bake at 350° for 12 - 13 minutes or until just starting to brown.

After pre-baking the crust, build the pizza Chicago-style:

> Start with 1/2 cup Mozzarella,
> Followed by your preferred low-carb toppings - I used: Pepperoni, Homemade Italian sausage, a few mushrooms, and black olives,
> Followed by 1/2 cup low-carb marinara sauce, or canned Tomato Sauce,
> And topped it off with either a dusting of Parmesan, or a few more shreds of Mozzarella and a sprinkling of oregano.

Bake an additional 20 - 30 minutes at 350°


Two slices and a nice salad was plenty!

With only 3.75g net carbs per slice (15g for the whole pizza) this recipe is a keeper!
