Ingredients

PIZZA DOUGH

  • 1 1/2 cups Mozzarella cheese grated
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

TOPPING

  • 1/2 cup Marinara sauce low carb
  • 3 jalapeno peppers sliced

  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 190C/375F degrees.
  • Place the mozzarella and cream cheese in a bowl. Either zap in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and zap for another 30 seconds. If the mixture has not melted, then give it another blast in the microwave. If you don’t have a microwave, place the bowl over a saucepan of boiling water and stir until melted.
  • Once the cheese has melted stir well.
  • Add the egg, seasoning, baking powder and almond flour.
  • Stir until you have a dough mixture.
  • Place the dough onto a piece of parchment paper, then lay another piece of parchment paper on top.
  • Roll out the dough into a pizza shape. Remove the top baking paper.
  • Prick the pizza base with fork holes (it will rise otherwise).
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden.
  • Remove from the oven and spread the Marinara sauce over the base
  • Scatter chopped jalapeno slices over the sauce.
  • Fill the jalapeno slices with cream cheese.
  • Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the jalapeno slices.
  • Cover the topping with the mozzarella cheese
  • Return to the oven and bake for a further 5 minutes until the cheese has melted (You could place the pizza under the grill for this step too).
  • Slice, eat and enjoy!
