Low Carb Pizza Crust
I am a huge pizza lover. I can't live without it. So when I ventured into a low carb diet, I had to figure a way to keep my indulgence without adding back in the carbs. After doing research of what others were doing, I came up with this low carb pizza crust recipe. I haven't regretted it. In fact, I have long gone gave up my low carb life style, but still eat this spinach crust. I try to cut carbs when I can. This is one recipe that I feel I can.
I know there are those that are skeptical. Well, skeptical nonbelievers, try this recipe out. If you don't love it, call me out on it. I dare you. In fact, I double dog dare you! Because I am betting you will like it as much as we do, and you will be raving about how fabulous it is in my comment section later.
So it's green… And the green is spinach… Does this make you doubtful? How can healthy spinach possibly turn into something that resembles a pizza crust, right?
It's magic! Seriously, once cooked, the spinach does not have much of a taste, and the cheese in the spinach crust gives it the flavor. It resembles a tortilla. It is pliable, thin, and stable like a tortilla, but not crispy and firm like a true pizza crust. If you let it rest a few minutes after cooking, you can still pick it up like a slice of pizza, but it will be bendy and possibly a little messy. But that is okay, because it will taste so delicious you won't care.

How to make spinach low carb pizza crust
Making spinach low carb pizza crust is easy with these simple steps:
- Just throw the ingredients for the crust in your food processor. (I use my Cuisinart DFP-14BCWNY 14-Cup Food Processor, Brushed Stainless Steel, White.) It is amazing. The food doesn't get cut in the sides and everything is processed evenly and perfectly. It is one of my favorite kitchen gadgets. I have hated my food processors in the past and after heavy research, I found this one. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a food processor.)
- Spread it out on parchment paper with a spatula. ( Parchment paper is a must! Or you will have a sticky mess.)
- Bake in oven at 425 for at least 15 minutes or until sides get a little brown.
- Let cool. Load with your favorite pizza sauce. Then add your favorite toppings. This is when you can get creative and make all kinds of fun pizzas.
- Bake in oven until toppings are cooked.
- Once removed from oven, let it rest for 5 minutes. This is the tricky part because it looks so good. But if you let it rest, and then slice it, your pizza will be able to be picked up with your hand. But if you can't wait, throw a slice on your plate and use a fork.
