laurenpizza

Wow. Really? Lauren has always rocked it out at her Lyme’s Disease site (check it out!), but when she emailed me the other day to share this incredible recipe, I couldn’t wait to share it with you. Seriously. so few ingredients make something pretty spectacular. See for yourself.

I am sharing this today so you can enjoy it this weekend for the Super Bowl.

Thank you, Lauren!

Lauren’s Pizza Crust/Pancakes

2 Eggs, beaten
2 oz Cream Cheese, softened
4 T Parmesan Cheese (finely grated stuff, not block or shredded) (YES for the pancakes too!)
2 T Coconut Flour
1/4 t Baking Powder
Dash Salt

(Pizza Crust) Any multi-purpose salt-free Seasoning blend (optional)
(Pizza Crust) Heavy dash Garlic Powder (optional, but YUM!)

(Pancakes) 1 – 1-1/2 TBSP Ideal Brown Sugar (Xylitol) or sweetener of your choice
(Pancakes) 1 tsp Vanilla

Beat all ingredients well. Heat skillet with ample amount of Olive Oil on medium high heat. When hot, add batter. It will be thicker, so you spread it around gently.

Let cook on one side till much of the bottom is well-browned but not too dark. Flip with large spatula. (Do it fast or it might break if it’s a larger cake.) Cook on other side until browned. (Each side takes approximately 3-5 minutes.)

For Pizza: Let cool, top then place in a 400 Fahrenheit degree over until toppings are hot and cheese is melted.

(Also good for a Pot Roast open-faced sandwich etc.)

Make 2 pancakes, about 6” across. The pizza in the pictures used all of the batter in a 9” crepe pan.

  6. Jamie, what should I substitute for the coconut flour? I’m allergic to it. Thanks –

  7. Hi, Joanne! I have finished posting all of her recipes, yes! Definitely check this tag for all of her work: http://yourlighterside.com/tag/tickle-my-sweet-tooth/

    I made this tonight and couldn’t get it down – and I like parmesan! I followed the recipe exactly. Have you tried it yet, Jamie?

    • Hi! I have not tried this. I am hearing really good reviews. I need to give it a go myself.

      • Jamie, have you tried it yet?

        • Hi! I have not! I really should, but I’ve been busy with my recipes. I get on these brain tangents and I do nothing but what’s in my brain! What are your thoughts about this recipe?

          • I haven’t tried it yet, and was hoping to get your expert opinion before I took the plunge, I see mixed reviews. Some people seemed to like it, while others didn’t.

            I have tried (and love) your cauliflower pizza bread stick recipe, which I have used very successfully as a rectangular pizza crust! (Just eliminating the step of cutting it into sticks.) Even my cauliflower-disliking husband said he’d willingly eat it. But ohhh the calories once the crust gets fully loaded with toppings! So I was looking for something not quite so calorie-dense and was hoping this recipe would fit the bill.

          • Thanks for the heads up! For you, I’ll give it a try. But only for you, Charlene!

  9. This looks good! A nice clean recipe…can’t wait to try it! I’ll probably add some roasted garlic and rosemary

  10. Another thumbs up – the only extras I added were a little dried parsley and oregano. For toppings I kept it simple – cheese, pepperoni, black olives and sliced little mexican peppers.

    It was a little hard to flip over in the pan but worth it. Thanks for sharing it! :)

    I’ve made this recipe twice for pizza crust. The first try, the batter was too thick resulting in a too thick crust. We prefer thin. So on the second try I thinned it with 1/4 water which made a very pourable batter which cooked up very much like a pancake, but it was so big (maybe 10″) that I did have trouble flipping it. I will definitely make this again using the thinner batter to make two smaller crusts next time. It is very filling! We like lots of toppings on our pizza and when served with a large side salad DH and myself only ate 1/2 the pizza for dinner, leaving us each enough for cold pizza breakfast. YUM! More coconut flour recipes please.~Susan

  12. Can’t wait to try this! One of the problems I have on low carb is finding substitutions for favorites like this.

  13. Made these again tonight, used garden veggie cream cheese, cooked just like pancakes, then topped with cheese and sliced into bread sticks, super awesome again. This recipe is a keeper!

  14. Do you think tapioca flour would work instead of coconut? I’m just trying to use up what i have instead of going out to buy more haha if not I won’t mind getting coconut, just curious!

    • Hi! I say give it a shot and see what you think! The caveat: Always test with a small batch before committing ingredients to a larger batch. That way if it works, woohoo! If not, you didn’t waste a lot of pantry essentials.

  15. I made these for the first time today and they are really good! My daughter even liked it! I added basil and parsley flakes to the batter. I did have a hard time spreading the batter and turning it. I tried the ol’ flipping it like a chef but that didn’t quite work. Even though ended up with an oddball shape it was still good! Makes for a great pizza when you are going low carb/paleo. Thanks for posting the recipe!
