If Chicago went on a diet and stared counting calories, you’d probably end up with this delicious Low Carb Deep Dish Pizza recipe! These taste just as good as they look, are easy to make your own, and even easier to meal prep.
We start this one off by making our low carb pizza crust. To make this crust you’ll need to add 3 large eggs, 5 ounces of cream cheese, 1/2 teaspoon of oregano, 6 tablespoons of parmesan cheese, 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder, and 9 ounces of your choice cheese into a bowl.
Change this one up by using a pizza blend (my choice!), 4 cheese blend, 5 cheese blend, mozzarella, or any other cheese you like on a pizza.
You can also use fat free or reduced fat to really cut down on the calories.
Mix all of those low carb pizza crust ingredients up until smooth.
Small baking pans like these mini loaf pans you see above are great for this low carb deep dish pizza recipe and super cheap!
Don’t want a mini pizza? Don’t worry! All you need to remember is that the bigger your pan is, the longer it’ll take to cook.
Coat those pan(s) with some non-stick cooking spray and evenly distribute your mix into them.
Put those onto a baking sheet and into the oven on 375F/190C for around 20-25 minutes.
Low Carb Deep Dish Toppings
When your crust is done, spread on top your favorite pizza sauce, pizza cheese, and some optional pepperoni slices. How much of each topping is up to you or if you ant any other toppings.
Put those back into the oven again on 375F/190C for around 20 minutes or until your cheese has fully melted.
How good does that Low Carb Deep Dish Pizza look?!
The best part? You’re looking at only around 350 calories per pizza with fat free ingredients. Considering a couple bites of real deep dish is probably close to 350 calories alone!
You can also save your crusts in the fridge or freezer and top them when you’re ready.
