This recipe is our most popular post (when we previously posted it elsewhere). I have personally tried various versions of low carb pizza recipes, but nothing ever hit the spot until I created this one in 2013. It uses Carbquik which is a pretty decent baking mix considering how low in carbohydrates it is. You can purchase Carbquik on Amazon. The picture above is the actual pizza I made. This is as close as you’ll get to the real thing folks!
Soften yeast in water and sugar, let sit for a few minutes. Add the mix, garlic powder, and baking soda. Knead for two minutes. Roll into a 16″ circle with a rolling pin (using a little Carbquik to keep it from sticking). Put on a 16″ greased pizza pan and fold up the edges. Brush with olive oil and let it rise a little for 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Add pizza sauce, cheese, and toppings. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes, then cut and enjoy!
