Wow, this was absolutely great and definitely satisfied my pizza craving.

I'm in Induction right now so I adapted the crust recipe a bit :

4 oz cream cheese
1/3 cup heavy cream
4 eggs
1/4 cup grated parmesan (from 3 oz parmesan)
Teaspoon of garlic powder
Oregano & basil (about a teaspoon each)
Cracked pepper

Basically I skipped the 2 cups of grated cheese in the crust. Baked it 60 minutes at 350 to make sure it was hard enough. Smelled heavenly too!

Made my own sauce with 1/4 cup of diced, canned tomatoes, 1 clove of garlic, spices and 1/4 cup olive oil - everything went into the blender.

This was topped with a grandiose load of 1 cup (12 oz) mozzarella, ground beef, bacon, onions and green peppers and yielded 6 big pieces (about 6"x4" and a good 3" high!). One was enough to satisfy me.

So 12 oz mozzarella / 6 = 2 oz of mozzarella
4 oz of cream cheese / 6 = 2/3 oz of cream cheese
3 oz of parmesan / 6 = 1/2 oz of parmesan

A total of 3 1/3 oz of cheese (my only cheese intake today).

I think this falls within induction guidelines, I'm happy and full - thank you so much for this recipe!

Pesto makes an amazing LC pizza sauce, it's my kids favorite. We also make a white pizza which is a little higher carb but still lower than tomato sauce. (we use ricotta, olive oil, fresh garlic and basil, mozzarella for the white pizza but you could probably use alfredo, spinach and moz. for even lower count)

Totally agree with you. Guaranteed EVERYONE in my house is THRILLED when I make this. After making it so many times, the kids finally found out I put eggs into the "crust". 2 of them HATE eggs. But they knew how good it was and it didn't phase them in the least.

Hi,

can you pls tell me how many people does this serve.....thanks

lpioch Sun, May-31-09 11:03

For our family, 2 adults, 3 kids.
Depends on how much you want to eat at a sitting.
I can sometimes eat only half of mine and save the rest for the next day's lunch. Reheats well.

Although I've made this often 2-3 years ago -- several of my variants are in this monster thread somewhere -- I haven't done it in a long time. And I had never actually done it exactly to the recipe.

My nearly-13 year old is on lowcarb with me. After a few weeks of having nothing but burger patties, chicken breasts and sandwich 'wraps' on LC tortillas, she found Karen Barnaby's beautiful book "The Low-Carb Gourmet" on my shelf. The pictures totally sold her LOL! She has gone through it several times now and picked out recipes she insists we try. The first one was the Deep Dish Pizza Quiche.



She and I have had a long ongoing 'issue' of her not wanting to help in the kitchen, when I want to teach her to cook, and she just wants me to be the servant I guess lol. This seems to have changed that. She realizes now that if I cook, she is going to get very simple, almost entirely protein fare. If WE cook, she can have interesting things. So suddenly she wants to cook with me. It's awesome.

So tonight we made our first meal, DDPQ. Made the base exactly to spec. We grilled canadian bacon for her and pepperoni for me first, then sauteed in butter some onions and mushrooms. Put that on and the rest of the cheese. She liked it a lot. She ate two pieces instead of one and wanted more but I convinced her that we'd just put them in ziplocks and when she wakes up if she wants PQ for breakfast she can just put a piece on a plate and nuke it. We forgot black olives for a topping. And we would like a tad more sauce and a little more cheese on top. That ups the calories/carbs a bit but we'll probably do it that way next time.

I'm grateful for this recipe. It's a big deal to find something that my kid likes, let alone that she is willing to spend time cooking with me. We actually had fun, did dishes, it was a good night together. I think it was the sheer beauty of Karen's book that sparked that happening. I guess there's a lot to be said for awesome pictures in cookbooks!

Oh yum! So glad you and your daughter had an enjoyable evening cooking together..and something health at that!! With a teenage girl in the house I know how priceless that is! I might have to seek out that cookbook. The picture on the cover alone has me salivating. ;)

I can't believe I've been on the forums for over a year and never tried this recipe. I'm making my 2nd pan full of it this week!

If you like pizza, you have to try this recipe :yum:

GrooveJock Sun, Sep-20-09 16:16

Ive been making this for 4 years and its still my favorite low carb recipe!

I'm usually not a fan of quiche but this really makes me want to try it!
