I'm not a fan of the "Fathead", chicken or cauliflower crusts. Every kind I tried was grainy, soggy, dry, or even chalky. So I created my own. I named the original one "Favorite Keto Pizza Crust", then had a couple other versions. This is my final and I think the BEST version. And it's EASY!
Start by preheating your oven. Temps and cooking times may vary depending on the oven so we'll just go with mine. Preheat to 375° f. In a mixing bowl combine 8oz. softened cream cheese, 3 eggs, 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese (not the powdery grated kind), 1 and a 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, 1 cup shredded colby jack cheese, 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, and a few twists of Himalayan Pink Salt. Blend well with a hand mixer.
Pour onto a large greased cookie sheet (I spray mine with 100% avocado oil spray). Spread evenly to the edges.
Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
After crust is baked, spread a thin layer of plain tomato sauce or preferred Keto approved pasta sauce. I use 4 ounces of sauce, then top with hand grated mozzarella cheese and pepperoni. Top with whatever Keto toppings you like! Throw back in the oven for about 10 minutes or until cheese is golden and bubbly.
REMEMBER: Pre-shredded cheese contains starch to keep it from sticking together, which of course provides added, unnecessary carbs! Always shred your own cheese!
Depending on pan size, it should make 15 slices. Based on 15 slices, the serving size is 3 slices. Macros are per serving, and just for the crust, not including sauce or toppings. Be sure to log your sauce and toppings in a trusted tracker app.

*Optional: I sometimes sprinkle sesame seeds on the bottom of the pan before I pour the mixture down. It's delicious! Just be careful when your spread the batter so you aren't mixing the sesame seeds in the crust, just try to gently spread the crust batter over it.
I also like to sprinkle everything bagel seasoning along the edges of the crust BEFORE the crust is cooked.
