Nut Free Fathead Pizza

Pizza!!!! It is a Favorite food for many people but regular pizza is full of grains and even sugar that is not good for our bodies. A popular alternative has been to make Fathead pizza which uses almond flour, but that still has a higher amount of carbs than people want and it obviously does not work for people with nut allergies.


Personally, I wanted to get rid of the almond flour so I came up with this nut free fathead pizza recipe using crushed pork rinds instead of almond flour!! Now on to the PIZZA!!!



Ingredients for Pizza Dough (this is enough for our family of 4):

3.5 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1.5 cup crushed pork rinds (also known as pork panko) I use a blender and make my own crushed pork rinds. You want the consistency of breadcrumbs. If you do not want to make your own you can always buy something like this from amazon:

4 tbsp Full Fat Cream Cheese (I always use Philadelphia Cream Cheese because the generic brands usually have more carbs/sugar in them)

1 TBSP Select Savory Seasonings, Select Pizza Seasoning

2 tsp white wine vinegar

2 eggs


Pizza Toppings:

No Sugar Added Marinara Sauce or Tomato Sauce

Mozzarella Cheese

1 TSP Select Savory Seasonings, Savory Italian Seasoning

Sliced Pepperoni

½ lb cooked mild breakfast sausage (optional)

Other pizza toppings that you enjoy: onion, peppers, bacon, Italian sausage etc.


Directions:

-Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

-Heat mozzarella and cream cheese in a small, non-stick pan on medium heat or in a bowl in the microwave oven.

-Stir until they melt together. Add the other ingredients and mix well.

-Moisten your hands with olive oil or butter and flatten the dough on parchment paper, or you can also use a rolling pin to flatten the dough between two sheets of parchment paper. You want the dough to be about 1/4" thick. We have used a pizza stone and cookie sheet and both work well.

-Remove top parchment sheet (if used). Prick the crust with a fork (all over) and bake in the oven for 10–12 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven.

- If you are going to use breakfast sausage or bacon for a topping cook them while the crust is baking

- Spread a thin layer of Marinara sauce on the crust. Top the pizza with the mozzarella cheese and sprinkle on the Select Savory Seasonings, Savory Italian Seasoning and then add your other toppings. Bake for 10–15 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

-Let it cool for a few minutes then cut and enjoy!!




OTHER OPTIONS:

Make Mini Pizzas!! Our kids LOVE to make their own pizza so we will make mini pizzas and let them put their own toppings on them. The process is the same as above except you will be flattening out smaller balls of dough on the parchment paper to make individual pizzas. Then everyone can make their own Pizza!!
