Low-Carb White Pizza Made With Carbquik

Thanks to Carbquik, even foods like pizza can be made low-carb

If you are livin' la vida low-carb and haven't tried Carbquik yet, then all I can say is that you are missing out on one of the most amazing products available to help you along in your low-carb lifestyle. It never ceases to amaze me how versatile this product is since it can be used just like flour in almost ANY recipe!

One of my favorite foods of all time has got to be pizza. There's just something about eating pizza that is magical. I don't know what it is, but I know I could NEVER live without pizza for the rest of my life. Unfortunately, most pizzas are very high in carbohydrates primarily from the crust and the sauce. Well, I've got an answer for that -- CARBQUIK!

This Carbquik Low-Carb White Pizza enables you to have a low-carb pizza crust and because it is a white pizza it does not contain the carbs that would normally be found in pizza sauces (although there is an alternate addition to the recipe at the end if you would prefer to have it with pizza sauce). Dazzle your family and keep the carbs under control with this fantabulous recipe compliments of Elaine at Low-Carb Connoisseur.


1 1/2 cups Carbquik
1/3 cup hot water (heated to 120-140 degrees)
8 ounces ricotta cheese made from whole milk
4 ounces sliced pepperoni
1/2 cup sliced mushroom
6 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese

Pre-heat oven to 450ºF. Grease 12-inch pizza pan.

Stir together Carbquik mix and very hot water; beat until soft dough forms. Knead dough 2-3 minutes until the dough is dry and no longer sticky.

Press dough in pizza pan. Spread ricotta cheese over the dough. Top with remaining ingredients.

Bake on the lowest rack in hot oven 12 to 15 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly.

Additional low-carb topping Ideas: meats, peppers, olives, and asparagus

NOTE: If you prefer to eat a more traditional pizza with sauce, then be sure you par bake the crust for 7 minutes in a 400ºF oven before adding sauce and toppings. Otherwise, the sauce may soak into the dough causing the pizza to come out soggy.

Servings: 8
Net Carbs Per Serving: 2g
Total Preparation Time: 15-20 minutes

to order Carbquik TODAY! You'll want to keep this stuff on hand at all times. Trust me, you will. :D

Now, how to stop at one slice!!

At least a whole one of those pizzas would be only 10 net grams of carbs.

There are options out there for people. This doesn't have to be deprivation!
