A delicious low carb pizza casserole that will be enjoyed by all. The gluten free pizza crust is made with a simple mix of eggs, cheese, and cream.
Although I set out to make a low carb pizza casserole, the end result of this recipe turned out to be more of a low carb pizza made in a casserole dish. The crust layer in this pizza is made with a mix of eggs, cream, and a variety of cheeses along with a little garlic and dried oregano seasonings.
This pizza needs to be made in a casserole dish because the mixture for the gluten free crust is thin and needs a pan with sides to contain the liquid. I used a 9×13 pan, but the recipe could easily be doubled to fit into an 18×26 jelly roll pan for a party size pizza.
I’m not always successful getting my husband to eat my low carb dishes because he is very picky when it comes to food. He was a little hesitant to try this pizza because he knew it didn’t have a regular crust.
However, when I told him what the crust was made of he agreed to give it a try. After all, he enjoys eating scrambled eggs with cheese so there was no reason for him not to like something made with the same ingredients.
After taking a bite, he actually told me it was one of the best low carb dishes I have ever made. Success!
So, if he liked it, I know others are going to love this one. It really does taste just like a regular pizza with a soft thick crust. No special ingredients snuck into this low carb pizza.
We actually enjoyed this pizza so much that I made another one two days later with some pepperoni added on top. I also plan to make this pizza in a larger size for my daughter’s birthday party next month in addition to ordering regular pizzas. Maybe I can convince a few others to give this low carb gluten free pizza a try.
