In addition to saving carbs, the 'dusted' cheese is just plain nasty.
And it doesn't behave as well as the brick of cheese that we grate.

Thanks, OP for the pizza recipe. We will make this soon!

I bake out portabella mushrooms then add shredded mozzarella, Mid's pizza sauce and top with slice of mozzarella and bake until browned. I love mushroom pizza and this does trick with low carb.

Made this for tax day dinner. Added Italian seasoning to the mozzarella cheese and a bit of pecorino Romano cheese to the base. Chopped up a couple of green olives and added it to the pepperoni on top. Made a small serving of wasabi mayo coleslaw to go with. Yum!

Here is our review.

Me: needing low carb, diabetic
Husband: very picky, not low carb

Pre-conclusion: potential 2 thumbs up!

We made 2 this evening. I made mine first. I made them both in an Ikea large Teflon type coated pan, probably 12".

Mine was roasted peppers, pepperoni and sliced green olives. Added some Parmesan cheese and Italian seasonings as suggested. I cooked it stovetop as directed, med-high heat (stove goes up to 10 so I did mine at 7.5-it is an induction stovetop).

Conclusion for mine:

pretty salty! I think I'll eliminate the green olives next time and load up on more veggies without salt (and I like salt!).
Boy these bad boys had a ton of grease! I used several paper towels to sop it up!

I never saw the browning at the edges. Next time I will keep checking the bottom and watching the bubbles because the bottom was a little over-cooked.

Pretty good (except for the salty flavor). Extremely satisfying! I only ate half of it.

Conclusion for my husband:

He really liked it. Which is awesome.
He only added pepperoni, Parmesan cheese and Italian seasonings.
For his, we backed the heat down to 6.0 and watched it a little more closely.
When the bottom was a lighter brown, he flipped it! And I have to admit, his looked better than mine did!

Next time

6.0 heat
watch closely
cook the other side just a little
No green olives for me!

My husband has always wanted to do this. He loves fried cheese so he was in heaven. Anything that cuts carbs in our house is a good thing!

Thank you OP for the recipe!
