  • 1/2 C shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. xanthan

Directions

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    Have you tried this for pizza crust, yourself, yet? Do you think I should bake the crust first and then add the toppings and put back in to melt the cheese?

      Yes and I love it! We have done it both ways. I prefer the little baking, adding the toppings and then the final melt down. Only if you like a crispy and crunchy crust. Otherwise, do it all at once.

    I attempted to make these this evening…it did not turn out in the least. The entire inside was a wet mushy mess. The outside edges that i can see through the pan are nice and brown and crisp but everything else is gross. I’m so disappointed as this looked amazing and got awesome feedback. I’m new to THM any suggestions on where I may have gone wrong? I even covered it with foil to bake longer so the cheese on top didn’t burn and that didn’t help.

      Im checking with my THM to see where something might have gone wrong. I’ll get back to you when we Coe up with something. Just for clarification, did you substitute any ingredients?

      Maybe try spreading it out a bit more so it is thinner? Also, make sure the oven is well pre-heated before baking it. I have two ovens (thank you to my hubby for installing the second the week of Thanksgiving, God bless him) and they heat very differently, so I’ll also say that it is possible your temp is off a bit.

    This is my favorite recipe for THM. We make it several times a month. It satisfies the pizza craving. I think adding the yeast makes all the difference in flavor. Thank you!

    These are crazy good I've made them a few times and even used then as pizza crust. You definitely need to bake it before putting the toppings on. I found it less trouble to just make the breadsticks ans have then with pizza casserole 🙂

    So, the yeast does okay with the truvia? I don’t have truvia but I have thm sweet blend.

        I can’t use truvia, it causes a horrible itchy rash. What do you think would be a suitable alternative?

          If you have pets, you might try Erythritol – however, the yeast may require a small bit of actual sugar to activate… (The erythritol comment over Xylitol is due to Xy’s toxic effect on pets – my cocker spaniel believes that anything that hits the floor is his to eat, so I keep no Xylitol here) :).

    Can you sub Glucomanan for xanthan? And if so would it be equal amounts? Thanks!

    I made this tonight as pizza crust. It was fabulous! My husband liked it better than traditional pizza. I have been craving something like this. Really fit the bill.

      Did you bake the crust without toppings first? If so, how long? What size pizza does this make?

    Would this work well for a pizza crust if you added sauce and pepperoni along with the cheese?

    Reply
    • The Husband of a Homeschooling Mom says:

      I would think that you would need to make the sticks thiner than you would normally and fully cook them. Then you could add the toppings and place back in the oven until the cheese is melted good. Let me know how it works for you.

        Ok I’ll definitely report back. Been on THM and desperately looking to still enjoy pizza movie night with the family

            I will try it, I’ve tried the lavish for a crust and it didn’t do it for me. I’m used to making my own high rising dough (not Sicilian, just normal crust) I need something with more chew and less crunch. I’m a NYer 🙂 I will try it for the sake of the cast iron skillet idea, that intrigues me. Thanks so much!

      • Shana says:

        I suppose you could also add pepperoni on top with the cheese and then just dip the breadsticks in sauce. That would be close enough to pizza for me 🙂 I will report back 🙂

    This is absolutely delicious!! Thank you so much for sharing it. I only have one question….the last part of the instructions say to put butter garlic and salt on the bread but does not say the amounts. The first time I just guessed and it was great so but I was just wondering how you do yours.

      Marla,
      To be honest with you…we guess at it as well! Little trial and error never hurt anyone. You may drink more water…but it won’t kill you.
