I got this from the Low Carber Forums and had to make a few adjustments based on what I had in the house (or what's available in my stores LOL). But in order to give you the nutritional #'s - I'll also tell you exactly what I did.

4 oz softened cream cheese (I only had 3)
4 eggs
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 TBSP chives (I didn't have)
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning (I didn't have)
1/2 tsp minced garlic or 1/4 tsp garlic powder (forgot to use LOL)
2 cups shredded cheese (mozza/cheddar mix - but I only had cheddar)
1/2 cup LC tomato or pizza sauce (I didn't have/couldn't find so I used 3 TBSP tomato paste mixed with a bit of water)
1 cup shredded mozza cheese (again I had to use cheddar)

Toppings I used were:
1/2 cup diced peppers
1/2 cups diced onions
80g sliced pepperoni
4 strips bacon
1 cup sliced mushrooms

Preheat over to 375;
Beat together cream cheese & eggs till smooth (I used my blender);
Add cream, parmesan cheese and spices;
Spray 13x9 glass baking dish with Pam;
Put 2 cups of shredded cheese in dish and pour egg mixture over top.
Bake at 375 for 30-35 mins.;
Remove from oven and spread with sauce & add toppings;
Cover with mozza;
Bake till browning & bubbly (or however you like it);
Let stand about 5 mins.

I got 8 servings out of it, so per serving...
325.25 Calories
26.375 Fat
5.6 NET Carbs
16.5 Protein

I used way too many toppings on mine (it was loaded LOL) & the calorie count was a little high for me, so in future when making this, to cut carbs & cal's down, I would definitely use the mozza and not all cheddar, cut back the onions to about 1/4 cup, mushrooms to 2/3 or 3/4 cup and the pepperoni to about 60g.

So, depending on what toppings you use, the #'s will all be different, but I tell ya, this was GREAT. Tasted just like pizza, although the bottom was a little soft and couldn't pick it up like a pizza slice (had to use fork).

Let me know what ya'll think when you try this (and you HAVE to try this if you're a pizza freak like me :D).

That sounds fabulous! I'll have to try it, because just scraping the toppings off of pizza isn't working for me. Thanks!

That recipe looks very similar to this one, which is Induction friendly & only 2 net carbs per serving:)

Will have to throw some anchovies in with it, though. ;)

Hmmm, this looked interesting... I think I'll tweak it a bit since I don't do the fat overdose a la Atkins, just lower carb for my maintenance plan. Besides if I make this recipe, I can eat Gluten Free pizza cheaper than buying it at the store and don't have to save pizza for my 1 carb meal a day.
Gonna skip the heavy cream & cream cheese, just use a bit of almond milk, and skip the bacon and pepperoni and use hot capocollo ham instead.

:jeno::jeno: Thanks for the starter recipe! :jeno::jeno:
