Joel's Magic Pizza Crust
Serving Size : 3
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
8 ounces grated parmesan cheese -- see note
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 extra large eggs
2 tablespoons shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tablespoon italian seasoning
Preheat oven to 450.
Combine all ingredients together in bowl thoroughly. Consistency will be
about that of cornmeal mush.
Spread mixture thinly and evenly in nonstick pizza pan or cookie sheet, such
as Baker's Secret. One recipe will cover most of a 10x15 sheet.
Bake crust for 15 minutes, until golden brown. DO NOT UNDERCOOK. If
necessary, loosen crust from pan.
Top with desired toppings, but put mozzarella cheese down over the crust
first, then other toppings, then sauce last. Bake just until cheese is
melted and bubbly. Serve hot.

NOTES : This is one time when only the cheap grated parmesan in the green
can (or its store-brand like) will do. Don't use shredded parmesan or good
fresh parmesan for this. It won't work. The consistency is perfect and the
pizza is *very* filling.
You can use a regular pizza pan, an aluminum pan, or cover a pan with
aluminum foil. If you do so, spray with Pam.
I like to double this recipe and use a 9x13 pan. This yields a thicker,
"breadier" crust and I like the consistency better. If you do this, bake
for 20 minutes instead of 15.
My consultation with the USDA database yielded a carb count of 6 carbs for
the whole recipe (crust only), whereas Mastercook says it's twice that.
Take the carb count as you will.
