Optional Information for Pizza:
Your choice of toppings such as pepperoni, pepperoncini peppers, cherry tomatoes, olives, pepperoni, mushrooms, etc... cooked.
Mix the shredded cheese and almond flour in a microwaveable bowl. Add the cream cheese. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute. Stir, then microwave on HIGH for another 30 seconds.
Add the egg, salt, garlic and any other herbs and spices, mix gently until a ball of dough forms. If the mixture hardens and becomes difficult to work with, pop it back in the microwave for 10-20 seconds to soften again but not too long or you will cook the egg.
Place in between 2 pieces of baking parchment paper and roll into a circular or rectangle pizza shape. Remove the top baking paper. If the mixture hardens and becomes difficult to work with, pop it back in the microwave for 10-20 seconds to soften again but not too long or you will cook the egg.
Remove the top baking paper. Slide the baking parchment paper with the pizza base, on a baking tray (cookie tray) or pizza stone, and bake at 425 for 12-15 minutes, or until brown.
Poke fork holes all over the pizza base to ensure it cooks evenly and doesn't bubble. Sprinkle with seasoning and herbs if desired.
Slide the baking parchment paper with the pizza base, on a baking tray (cookie tray) or pizza stone, and bake at 425 for 12-15 minutes, or until brown.
To make the base really crispy and sturdy, flip the pizza over (onto baking parchment paper) once the top has browned.
Once cooked, remove from the oven and add all the toppings you like. Make sure any meat is already cooked. (Cooking time is only to heat up the toppings and melt the cheese.)
Bake again at 425 for 5 minutes.
Place chosen toppings on pizza in desired layering. Return pizza to oven until cheese is melted and bubbly and is heated through.
Slice pizza into 6 slices.
Serve bubbling hot. Enjoy your delicious low-carb pizza!
