It's Friday - Anyone Craving Pizza?

I have a friend on this board that makes the best low carb pizzas! He started with the deep dish recipe from Linda Sue's site (Thanks Linda Sue!) and has tweaked it into a work of art!

I'm posting this in the main lobby because I know a lot of people struggle with what to do when the family is having pizza and just end up eating toppings only. This is so good you'll have to smack the fingers of the non-low carbers to keep them out of it. I prefer it over any delivery pizza.

Hopefully bobo36us will pop in with some tips if anyone wants to try this - it's worth the effort!

Never more than 4 times a day. Even if it's low carb, pizza is a food I usually try to avoid. I could never understand how I could eat pizza until my arm got a cramp and I still never felt full.

Hi Everybody! First I start with the deep dish pizza in the recipe room. I like that recipe, but the pizza is in a baking pan and doesn't leave much room for toppings. So, I start with a huge pan (16"), multiply the crust ingredients by 1.5, and make a much thinner crust.

I also add about 2oz of chopped/diced pepperoni to the crust mixture. It adds a great flavor. I also try to use a different brand of pepperoni than the one that I top the pizza with, but the same brand would work too.

This looks thicker than it really is. It is actually a challenge to try to cover the whole pan. It is ready to go into the oven.

Here it is after baking. I might have left it in about one minute too long, but it turned out fine anyway.

Add your favorite toppings.

I use Trader Joes marinara. I used one cup, which added 10 net carbs. To be honest, the fresh tomatoes on top added waaaaaay more flavor than the sauce did. I think next time I will skip the sauce alltogether and add more fresh tomatoes instead.

Add 8oz of mozzarella

Add tomatoes

Add green pepper and onion

Add sausage. Make sure not to crumble the sausage too fine when pre cooking it. Leave some nice big chunks!

Add fresh ricotta. If you have never tried this before, you absolutely must!

Add pepperoni

Add mushrooms, and bake

Doesn't this look yummy????

You will never miss the crust!

This slice is about 450 calories, but it is HUGE! I only cut this whole large pizza into 8 slices because that is about how many calories I like per snack. You could easily cut this into 16 slices, or even smaller squares.

He is the Pizza King! lol

I am in heaven when he makes one of those and I get to share it! He made that beauty in Ohio and I'm in Arizona right now!

He sent the pics to torture me and I told him he just had to share them with LCF!

OMG that looks delicious! I want a slice now!

I have a question though. Did you grease that pan before you made the crust? On Linda Sue's recipe she says not to use a metal pan because the crust will stick - just curious how easy it was to remove your pizza slices and what you did to make them not stick. Also, I would love a carb count as well if you have one.

Thanks for sharing this!!

OMG, I'm drooling! I've made the deep dish pizza before and liked it, but this looks fantastic... I'm going to make it again with these changes. Thanks for sharing the pics!

I also want to know about the metal pan and what was used to keep the pizza from sticking.

Hi ChristiansMom & Roni,

I used a non stick pan, and sprayed it with PAM.
On the deep dish one, I used a casserole dish sprayed with PAM.

To be totally honest, I don't think you even need the non stick dish,
or the PAM, because of all the grease in the cheese of the crust.

I have never had anything even close to sticking, but I guess the
cooking spray would be a small piece of insurance.

By the way, don't forget the fresh tomatoes. They were soooooo
much more flavorful than the sauce was!

Bobo

One question Bobo, do you use ricotta and mozzerella or just ricotta?

TIA!

There are actually 3 different cheeses total.

First there is the Italian Blend in the crust.

Second is the Mozzarella underneath the pepperoni just like a regular pizza.

Then finally the ricotta. But, the ricotta is used only as a topping, it doesn''t have to cover every inch of the pizza (see photo 11). Also, if you don't like ricotta, you could skip it all together, or you could slice some fresh mozzarella from one of those fresh mozzarella balls at the grocery store.

OMG!!!! I just made this and it was GREAT!!! I forgot to put pepperoni in the crust tho so I need to do that next time. My family loved it too. My kids didn't even notice it wasn't regular pizza.
The only problem.....I ATE TOO MUCH!!! I knew i was full after my 2nd piece, but ate a 3rd anyway So, other than portion control, this was AWSOME!
Thanks!!!
