8 ounces cream cheese, softened
4 large eggs
1 cup ground pork rinds
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded Italian cheese
1/2 tablespoon Italian spices
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Mix cream cheese, eggs, seasonings, and Italian cheese, mix well. Add ground pork rinds last. This will be a very thick mixture.
Now plop this mixture onto a Pam-sprayed pizza pan, cover with plastic wrap and roll out to edges. Use a water glass if you don't have a rolling pin.
Bake the crust for 20 minutes, remove from the oven and let stand 10 minutes. Top with the lowest carb pizza sauce you can find, mozzarella cheese and favorite toppings, bake again until bubbly. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before cutting.

All I can keep saying is WOW!!!
I was really skeptical at first, but this was even better than regular pizza. Everything from the spices to the cheese, I just can't believe how good it was. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

This recipe is killer! I've made it many times and everyone likes it as much as a regular pizza crust when it is freshly baked. Day old pizza is rather flimsy.
I have frozen it with good results.
I also make mock sliced bread from this. It's terrific! I separate the recipe for 8 slices and use a square 4" egg ring and grill them like pancakes. They look and taste like cheese bread! Sandwiches from these are very filling- a hearty lunch even before the sandwich filling! I freeze these in pairs in sandwich ziplock bags to be later used for sandwiches.

This was great. I made it with buffalo sauce and didn't add any carbs.

Absolutely delicious and VERY easy - easier than making regular pizza dough!
My only suggestion is to HEAVILY spray the pizza pan with PAM, or use parchment paper to roll out the dough. Because of the cheese content the "dough" tends to stick to the pan.
I did a "white" pizza with some sauteed spinach, chicken and mushrooms - virtually no carbs since there is no tomato sauce.
I'll never use regular pizza dough again!
