Don’t run off, y’all. Low Carb does not mean Low Delicious. This pizza…it’s fantastic. I wish I could call it No Carb, as it practically is, but I wanted to be honest. The very few grams of carbs come from the ranch dressing – which are null once spread out across the entire recipe, and you can opt to not use it at all if you so chose.
Here’s what you need to know:
This pizza has not one bit of flour in it.
Not a bit.
How? You know, I couldn’t believe it myself. A friend shared a recipe on facebook a few months back that showed a pizza made in a similar fashion, but it used sooo many eggs. I feared a recipe like that would be an omelet in taste, and that wasn’t what I wanted. So I experimented, and beyond my own belief, this “crust” tastes like pizza. It does! For a gal who has limited her carb intake as much as possible, to be able to eat ANY kind of pizza, without guilt, well…it’s a huge deal.
You can certainly use this “crust” recipe on other pizzas – pepperoni, sausage, whatever you like – it will work! I hope it changes the way you look at pizza, especially if you are living low carb like I am!
Low Carb Buffalo Chicken Pizza

1. Preheat oven to 400. Prepare two baking pans with aluminum foil, parchment, or other non-stick surface. Set aside.

I actually loved this recipe so much that I made it on Daytime Blue Ridge, the NBC Daytime talk show where I appear a few times a month. Want to watch us make it? Just click below!
