Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • 1½ teaspoons dried basil, divided
  • 1½ teaspoons dried oregano, divided
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder, divided
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1½ Tablespoons tomato paste
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar-free tomato sauce
  • 4 ounces pepperoni, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Combine cream cheese, eggs, Parmesan cheese, 1 teaspoon basil and oregano, and ½ teaspoon garlic powder in a medium-sized bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and whisk until mixture is completely blended and smooth.
  3. Spread the cream cheese mixture onto the prepared baking sheet into the desired shape and thickness. (For thicker crusts, reduce oven temperature to 350° F and increase baking times for best results).
  4. Place the crust in the pre-heated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until slightly puffed and golden brown. Check halfway through cooking time to ensure the crust bakes evenly and does not become too brown.
  5. In the meantime, whisk the tomato paste, tomato sauce, the remaining dried herbs, and the garlic powder in a small bowl. Lightly season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine. Set aside.
  6. Remove the pizza base from the oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes before topping with tomato sauce, sliced pepperoni, and shredded Mozzarella cheese.
  7. Return pizza to oven and bake for another 10 minutes, or just until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from oven and garnish with fresh basil, if desired, and serve immediately. Enjoy

I'm anxious to try this, my friend was telling me about a chicken one the other day, but I like the idea of meatless too for the crust. Thanks so much for sharing!
