Tomorrow Is Pizza Night ... Yippee!
Tomorrow is pizza night and I'm going to do this recipe again. I haven't made this for a very long time ... much too long

I just love this recipe. I think Donald deserves some kind of a medal for giving us this recipe. I think I'm in love with Donald. :rheart: Any man who can come up with a recipe like this is a keeper. ;)

Can't wait until tomorrow to chow down.

i make a variation of this that takes a little less time creating the "crust". i mix cream cheese, 4 eggs, 1/4 cup parm cheese, 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, a little salt and pepper and some basil. heat a nonstick skillet to low-medium heat. melt a little unsalted butter in the pan and ladle about 1/2 cup of the mixture into the pan. it will cook slowly--first side takes about 4 minutes. when top resembles a pancake that is ready for flipping gently slide a spatula under and flip it, cook about 2 more minutes or til brown.
then top with favorite toppings and bake til bubbly!
this is great for individual servings and it also freezes nicely!

I made this again tonight and it ROCKS! My DH doesn't particularly care for pizza and he loved it.

I do have one problem with this recipe though, perhaps someone can help me out? I found that the egg mixture that slipped between the pepperoni slices had a burnt taste. The burnt egg taste reminded me of fish which I gag on.

Any suggestions on how to overcome this? Perhaps I need to double or triple the pepperoni so that there is absolutely NO empty space on the bottom. Perhaps even overlapping the pepperoni? I thought about using layers of bacon (overlapped perhaps).

I know this is just ME ... the recipe is to die for. Can anyone offer any suggestions?

Oh ... I added sliced olives to mine this time. Yummy!

i think i forgot to mention that i use 8 oz. of cream cheese. i just had my slightly altered version for lunch and it was fantastic! topped the "crust" with sugar free marinara, mozzarella, pepperoni, mushrooms, and black olives--baked at 400 for 10 minutes. voila!

Awesome recipe, the first time i made it i messed up and did not read the instructions good..i put 2 cups of cheese in the mix then i put 2 cups of chesse on the bottom like i was suppose to.. i did not put any toppings on this and put it is a smaller disk to family used it as bread sticks and put their own sauce on it..was very good...

Donald - You have brought new light to my life! What a wonderful recipe. I made it for dinner tonight and can't wait to eat a piece for breakfast and lunch tomorrow! I also froze some.

I put one thin layer of pepperoni on the bottom and then toped it with mushrooms, olives and onions! It was soo cheesy and tasty!

Thanks again for the fab recipe.

Fantastic Recipe
Hi Donald,

I have been using your recipe for a long time now, and DH who is not doing lc and I just loves it. I try very hard to not fix it very often so that I don't get sick of it (heaven forbid). Last weekend I made a double recipe just for the freezer, DH just loves to thaw things out and zap them in the microwave. He has eaten more than I, it is almost all gone. I buy the large packages of the different cheeses and pepperoni from Costco special for your pizza.

I just love the variations that others have added, we all have different tastes and this is just fantastic recipe to add all the wonderful variations. I also have added marinated artichokes, slices of onions, mushrooms and sweet peppers.

To those of you who have a problem with side effects, I am very sure it is because of the richness of the ingredients.

Thanks again Donald, you are such a sweetie.

Carol :rose: :rose:

I finally made this last night. This is awesome.

Thanks for the recipe!

OH btw, Kroger makes a bottled (jar) of pizza sauce that only has 3 carbs per serving (vs about 8 for speg sauce) I used this and it dropped the carb count down to 4 net per serving!

misschris Tue, Mar-09-04 14:39

All I can say is WOW! I made this last night for the first time and it was so yummy! I also used the Pizza Sauce from Kroger. This was one of the best recipes I have tried yet!! Thank you SO MUCH! I even fed the leftovers to a bunch of "carb-aholics" and they did not realize there was no crust until half way through!!!!!

GrooveJock Wed, Mar-10-04 06:54

I have made this two nights in a row! Even my co workers love it!

xvxwickdxv Thu, Mar-11-04 21:53

Wow what an incredible recipe!! I wanted pizza tonight for my bday and thought I would save a cheat day for that... instead I found this recipe and made it... Incredibleeeeeeeee... my house smelled like baking bread... ty ty ty

cheat free on my cheat day... Yipppppeeee

snmn&stars Fri, Mar-12-04 10:12

OMG!!!! I absolutely loved this recipe and I don't like quiche! It wasn't to eggy and I didn't even miss the bread crust. Oh it was so yummy!!! I had my mom taste it because she loves quiche and I couldn't pry her hands off of it. She is on a low fat "diet" and she couldn't resist this. This is not a low fat recipe, but she ate like half of the dish.

Great recipe, it's deffinately an item I will have in my house from now on!!

Absolutely wonderful. EVERYBODY loves it. Thanks!!


Brookey Sat, Mar-27-04 16:51

oh i loved it... add tabasco... it was wonderful

marchbaby Sun, Apr-11-04 16:12

Tried it again
as the first time I didn't like it. Well this time I used only 3 eggs, and it was fantastic, the kids are having it for dinner and there won't be any leftovers.:cool:

Jarrod Wed, Apr-21-04 09:36

Agreeeeeeeeed.. I have made this like 4 times... it gets better every time...
From Ham and Pepp
to Pepp and Sausage
to pepp and Bacon
or... to the MEAT LOVERS ( Pepp, ham, bacon, sausage )
yeah that is a lot of PIG...but OH MY.!!
annnnnnnnnd I 90% of the time top it off w/ cold slices of
Jalapenos ( cuz that is the kinda guy I am )
But.. you can BAKE on the jalapenos.. but that REALLY brings out more of a burn....than a "taste" when eating it.

Yummmmmmm..!! Thanks !

Divina99 Wed, Apr-21-04 09:57

Ok I'm SOLD!LoL I'm making this tonight. Thanks for sharing DW. :D

vixen69 Thu, Apr-22-04 18:09

I made this for my mom who doesn't do LC and turns her nose up at anything low carb and she loved it. Even asked me for the recipe. This one is a keeper!

MaryToU Wed, Apr-28-04 19:18

This has been an easy standby favorite for the family. Last time I made it, I cooked up susage, and crumbled it up, the put it between the cheese bottom and the egg and cream mixture. Boy, that went over big!!! Just topped it off with the sauce and cheese. Next time might add onion and pepper on top of that.

Nancy LC Sun, May-02-04 19:17

Aroooo! This one makes me howl with joy. I just made it tonight for the first time. I used Trader Joe's Quatro Frommagio shredded cheese (parmesan, assagio, mozzarella and provalone ... I think) in the "crust" and I used fresh basil, thyme and oregano from my garden in the pizza sauce.

Wow! Its soooo good.

Pmizer Mon, May-03-04 14:06

This was some really good pizza. I had my doubts but I wasn't disappointed!

BlitzedAng Mon, May-03-04 16:14

The children love this soo many ways... Pizza quiche,chicken alfredo quiche,cheeseburger quiche,seafood quiche. All ya have to do is change the sauce or seasonings for whichever way your making it.

busybee Sat, May-08-04 16:21

Well finally got around to making this dish ... it was fantastic .. so if you've seen this recipe don't wait to make it .... you will not be sorry .... the only thing I did differently was to saute my mushrooms and green peppers a bit in basil olive oil before I used them on the pizza .... yumm yum yum

Joys Thu, May-13-04 16:09

I have the "crust" in the in oven right now. So far it smells delicious! Let ya know how it turns out....

Joys Fri, May-14-04 12:57

It was absolutely wonderful!!! I had pizza for the first time in FOREVER! :)
