Many low-carb dieters have tried different ways of making low-carb pizza, and most of the home verisons aren’t that successful.
One of the most successful attempts was a Red Baron low-carb pizza that was marketed last year, but they stopped making it and you can’t buy it anymore. So now low-carb dieters are back to self-made efforts when it comes to pizza.
Fortunately, I’ve discovered an amazingly simple way to make low-carb pizza at home.
The result of my efforts is pictured above.
Now let me tell you how to make it.
Here in SoCal we have a pizza chain called Papa Murphy’s (NOT the same as Papa John’s). The thing about Papa Murphy’s is that they don’t cook the pizza. They make it, but then you pick it up and take it home and bake it yourself. (It is, correspondingly, cheaper than ordering from a pizza shop that makes, bakes, and delivers the pizza.)
Last year Papa Murphy’s started advertizing low-carb pizza, and I couldn’t resist stopping in to see what it was all about.
It turned out that they were putting pizza ingredients in to a “special” pan that you took home and baked in your oven. There was no crust to this pizza. Instead, you poured a few eggs (or equivalents from a store-bought “Best of the Egg” product in a carton) into the tray before baking it. This served as a binder, fluffer, and crust.
Then you cut it up and eat it.
It worked great!
