Carb count:5.4 g net carbs per serving (2 pieces)
For the dough: 1 ½ cups part-skim, low-moisture shredded mozzarella cheese 1 oz cream cheese ½ cup almond flour 3 tbsp coconut flour 1 large egg
Toppings: ½ cup part-skim, low-moisture shredded mozzarella cheese ⅓ cup shredded parmesan cheese 1 tsp finely chopped parsley
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Add mozzarella and cream cheese to a large microwave-safe bowl. Melt in the microwave at full power in 30-second intervals. After each 30 seconds, stir cheese until completely melted.
Add cheese ball to a food processor with dough blade attachment. Add in almond flour, coconut flour, and egg. Pulse on high speed until the dough is uniform. The dough will be quite sticky.
Allow the dough to cool slightly, then roll out between two sheets of parchment paper until ¼ inch thick. Peel top sheet of parchment paper off of dough. Move the dough (still on the bottom parchment paper) onto a baking sheet.
Spread ¼ cup of mozzarella cheese over the dough, leaving a ½ inch perimeter. Bake for about 5-6 minutes, or until edges of the dough are golden and puffy.
Evenly sprinkle the surface of dough with remaining mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese, leaving a 1/2 inch perimeter. Bake for another 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Garnish with parsley before serving.
