Ultra Low Carb Cloud Bread Pizza, a gluten free and ketogenic diet friendly dinner the whole family will love!
Looking for low carb comfort food? Aren’t we all.
Pizza is one of those foods my family simply can’t live without. We often eat light lean meals all week long, then fall off the wagon on Friday night, with one aromatic waft of a hot cheesy pizza.
In fact, I believe my family would eat pizza every night of the week, if I would let them.
Balance is a good thing. If I can get my kids to eat salads several nights a week, and leave pizza for the weekends, I can live with that.
Yet for those stressful weeks, when we need our favorite comfort food a bit more than normal, there’s always Low Carb Cloud Bread Pizza.
Cloud Bread… Have you tried it yet?
It’s a gluten free, ultra low carb bread substitute for low carb dieters. It’s fluffy, flexible, and is great for quick sandwiches.
Yet, did you know you can use Cloud Bread “dough” for pizza as well?
When making cloud bread, separate egg whites from the yolks. Whip the whites into a firm meringue. Then beat the egg yolks with low fat cream cheese and herbs.
Next fold the meringue and creamy yolk mixture together into a foamy batter. Beating the eggs separately, before mixing, is imperative for reaching the right consistency.
Smooth out the fluffy egg-based batter into a round pizza crust and bake. Finally top the Low Carb Cloud Bread Pizza Crust with low carb toppings.
Bake again to golden perfection.
I like to use canned fire-roasted crushed tomatoes as pizza sauce because there are chunky and usually contains no added sugar.
Slice a mozzarella ball and arrange the slices over the crust. Top with chopped kale and prosciutto. The kale crisps in the oven offering a lovely texture (and some added vitemins and minerals) while the prosciutto provides a touch of decadence.
It’s best to bake the Low Carb Cloud Bread Pizza on the lowest oven rack to help it firm up enough on the bottom to hold the toppings.
Let the pizza bake long enough for the cheese to melt and the crust to turn a lovely shade of dark gold.
Finish the pizza off with a sprinkling of fresh basil, and you’ve got a low carb pizza that can hold its own against any pizza delivery service!
