Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp italian seasoning
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup alfredo sauce , your favorite store bought(I can't re-invent this deliciousness)
  • 4 oz frozen spinach
  • 2 tbsp shredded parmesan
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flake

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F
  • thaw spinach in a microwave safe bowl, then squeeze the liquid out in a dish towel.
  • Combine mozzarella cheese and almond flour in a microwave safe bowl, add cream cheese
  • Microwave for 1 minute, then stir. If the mixture is not melted and easy to combine, microwave for 30 seconds more.
  • add egg, italian seasoning, and salt. Mix well
  • Place mixture on parchment paper and press flat into a 10 inch circle. You could also roll it out between two pieces of parchment, but I didn't think it was necessary.
  • Place directly on the oven rack and bake for 8-10 minutes or light brown, poke any bubbles that develop with a fork
  • remove the crust and add your toppings, first alfredo sauce, then spinach, parmesan, and finally, sprinkle with red pepper flake
  • Put pizza back in the oven and bake for an additional 8-10 minutes
  • Slice and serve!

Notes

My kids are not spinach fans so I make them a separate pizza with just the Alfredo sauce on top.
