Breakfast Pizza

In our house, we love breakfast and we love pizza. So we combined both loves into one great, low-carb dish that will keep happy tummies satisfied the rest of the day!

Fat Head Pizza Crust (the best low-carb pizza crust recipe we’ve tried by far!):

1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella

3/4 cup almond flour

2 tbsps cream cheese, cubed

1 egg

Preheat oven to 400F. Put mozzarella and cream cheese in a bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Stir, then microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir again. Add in 1 egg and almond flour and mix well. Put dough on a round pizza pan lined with parchment paper. Top with a similar sized piece of parchment paper and flatten dough to spread evenly. Remove top sheet of paper. Pierce holes in the dough with a fork to let steam out and avoid bubbles forming.

Bake for 8-9 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Lower oven temperature to 350F.

This is what I used for toppings: Salsa (instead of pizza sauce), 5 eggs (scrambled and cooked), 6 pre-cooked and sliced breakfast sausage links, pre-cooked mushroom slices, 4 pre-cooked and chopped bacon slices, 2 tbsp roasted red peppers, minced, and 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella.

Spoon the salsa onto the crust, then top with eggs, followed by remaining toppings. Bake for an additional 8 minutes at 350F. Remove from oven and let sit 3 mins before slicing.

Chicken Bacon Ranch Crepes

Making crepes is both an art and a science. For these, I combined 1/4 brick (2 oz) softened cream cheese and 2 eggs, then beat with electric beaters until smooth. Allow to rest for 3 minutes or until bubbles settle.

Heat pan and add 1 tbsp oil to coat. Put in a spoonful of batter (it will be thin) and coat bottom of pan. Cook for 2 minutes, gently nudging the edges forward to loosen the set crepe from the pan. Instead of attempting to flip it, I cover the pan with a plate and hold it steady as I flip the entire pan/plate so that the crepe is now on the plate. Brown side up, slide the crepe back into the pan to brown the other side. After another minute, I gently slide the cooked crepe onto a plate covered in parchment paper and let cool.

I filled my crepes with crispy bacon and shredded chicken (add cheese too if you like), then folded them over and topped it off with a drizzle of creamy ranch dressing and minced green onions.
