Frying Pan Pizza

Need a quick pizza and don't want to heat the oven?  This one worked for me. It is low carb and gluten free.  I just sort of had a thought in my mind, wondered if it would work, and whipped it up to see.  It worked.  I don't know if I needed to add the baking powder.  You can try with or without it and see what happens.  I think next time I may try without it.  It is a soft crust, you'll need to eat it with a fork.  I guess you could pick it up in your hands but it won't be stiff in your hands like a crisp crust.  While the "norms" (non-diabetic, wheat tolerant folk) ate their regular pizza I whipped this up quickly for myself.  If you can make an omelet, you can make this.

Recipe By     : Ginny Larsen
Serving Size  : 1     Preparation Time :Approximately 5 minutes
Categories    :  Main dish

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  2        large  eggs
  2        tablespoons  almond flour, Honeyville
  2        tablespoons  parmesan cheese
            sprinkle  onion powder
            sprinkle  salt
            sprinkle  italian seasoning
 1/4      teaspoon  baking powder -- (I think you could do without it)
  2        tablespoons  pizza sauce
  1/2     cup  shredded mozzarella cheese
  7        Pepperoni Slices, *Armour

With a wire whisk, beat the eggs together with the flour, parmesan cheese, seasonings, and baking powder.

Preheat a non-stick medium skillet for omelets, on medium heat, pour batter into the pan and cover.  Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until it is ready to flip.

Carefully flip over to the other side, remove from heat and quickly spread on your toppings.  (It's a good idea to have them all ready right next to your pan so you can do this quickly.)

Put back on heat and cover for about 2 minutes.  Check to see if bottom is lightly browned and the top is melted and gently slide onto your plate.

  1. just made this. Not bad , could use more seasonings in crust. Tastes somewhat like a pizza

  2. Can I use anything besides the almond flour and not add to the carb count? My husband is allergic to almonds.

    1. You could use 1 tbsp coconut flour instead.

    2. or linen grounded (tastes more like bread)

    3. What do you mean by "linen grounded"? Is that the same as flax seed meal?

  3. I made this for breakfast today? Couldn't wait to eat my pizza for dinner so made it more breakfasty by just using bacon and sausage instead of pepperoni. YUM! Thanks for the recipe. Will be making this frequently!!

  4. I just made this tonight for dinner and it was very tasty! I wasn't sure how those ingredients were going to end up as a "crust", but they did. Instead of regular salt, I used a little garlic salt. It was super easy. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thanks for sharing Kelly! I'm glad you liked it!

  5. I am new to low carb eating and am a single woman, so too cook a whole pizza or a big meal just doesn't make sense...I saw this and thought, sounds good I tried it, and I love it!!! Thank you!
