I keep making these pizzas and I keep trying to make them better. I have borrowed quite a few ideas from @carl as he is also searching for the best pizza. So off we go.
Here are the ingredients.
170g grated cheese mozzarella
85g almond flour
40g cream cheese
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum
Pinch of salt
Four Cheese Pizza Blend
Don Pepino’s Pizza sauce
Preheat your oven to 425F
Put the dry ingredients into a food processor.
Process it until it looks like this.
Pour it out on some parchment. It will not look like dough at all.
Start gathering up the “dough” and using it to pick up the loose bits on the tray. It will stick to itself and you will end up with a ball.
I use a double batch so repeat this process and combine the 2 balls to make a bigger ball.
Put parchment on top of the ball and start smooshing it with your hands.
Here is where it gets interesting. I tried using a roller to get the dough right and it just doesn’t work. So I tried using a crab mallet on its side. Like this.
You just push the dough around until it covers the entire baking sheet. When it does I fold over the edges of the bottom piece of parchment. This allows me to create a nice clean edge that is not thin and will not burn. I hope these pics help show what I mean.
Use a fork to dock the dough so it doesn’t puff all up.
Toss that into the preheated (425F) oven for 6-7 minutes.
Time for the toppings.
I cut up pepperoni, salami and ham and crisped it up in a pan.
When the oven timer went off i took out the pan and I put a piece of parchment on top and then another baking sheet. I flipped the pans and then took the crust and put it back into the hot baking sheet.
Back into the oven it goes for 5-6 more minutes.
Time to add the sauce. I use Don Pepino’s. I brush the sauce on so there is not a lot there. All the way to the edge.
Add the cheese.
Add the pre-cooked toppings.
Put back in the oven for 5-6 more minutes. When done let it cool on a rack for a bit and cut into pieces. Sprinkle on some oregano and red pepper flakes.
Time to eat! We put some sauce on the side for people that want more.
My dog Ollie photobombed me.
I hope this helps. This meal is a keto staple and one you should learn to make!
