  • 1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (160g)
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese (30ml)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3/4 cup almond flour (85ml)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder (2.5ml)


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  • Combine the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese together in a bowl. Stir to incorporate the two ingredients together. Microwave for a total of 90 seconds, in 30 second intervals, stirring in between.
  • Beat the egg, then add it to the bowl, along with the almond flour and baking powder. Stir it all together. Knead the dough either by hand or in a food processor or stand mixer with the dough paddle, until the dough is uniform and all the ingredients have been well blended together.
  • Roll out the dough. It can be as thick or thin as you like. Put it on a baking sheet with a parchment paper lining, or on a pizza stone. Poke the dough 5-6 times with a fork or knife, so bubbles don't form in the dough.
  • Bake for 8 minutes, or until the dough becomes slightly golden on top. Remove it from the oven. Add your preferred toppings and bake until the toppings are hot and bubbly.


  • If you don't want to use the microwave, you can heat the cheese with a double broiler pan on the stove top. Add the cheese to a glass mixing bowl and set it on top of a sauce pan with simmer water. Stir until combined.
  • The dough will be quite sticky and may stick to your hands and the rolling pin. You can add a bit of olive oil to keep it from sticking.
  • The original recipe does not call for baking powder. You can leave it out with no repercussions.
  • If you're using a baking sheet, do not line it with tin foil. It will stick.
