Introduction: Crustless Cheese Pizza

I love pizza. I also love tinkering with recipes and making fun twists on classics.

Today I'll show you how I make mini pizza crisps using baked parmesan chease! I also made a video showing you how I did it above :)

Step 1: Gather Up Your Ingredients

The only required ingredient for this dish is:

  • Parmesan cheese, finely grated. Other cheeses will not work for this application!

For toppings, you can use whatever you have on hand! I'm using:

  • Pepperoni
  • Bacon, cooked and cut into pieces
  • Red onions (possibly my favorite non-meat pizza topping)
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Italian Seasoning

Preheat your oven to 300 degrees and get ready for assembly!

Step 2: Prep the Pan and Make the Base

Grab a half sheet pan or cookie sheet and either a silicon baking mat or aluminum foil. If you are using foil, lube it up with a little no-stick spray.

Measure out 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese and pour it carefully onto the pan. Use the back of the measuring cup or a spoon to even out the cheese into a disc.

Top the disk with some Italian seasoning and park the pan in your oven for 5 to 6 minutes, or until golden.

Step 3: Put Cheese Disk on Mould

This step is optional put a nice touch. After the cheese comes out of the oven it is still a little soft, but it will harden up after a few minutes. This means we can place it on something to change its shape!

I'm using a small saucer to make the cheese slightly cupped.

Now we will add the toppings!

Step 4: Add Toppings and Finish

Add whatever toppings you want after the cheese cools. Cut and serve! The parmesan forms a semi-rigid base (oddly crust-like) that holds all the ingredients nicely.

I would love if you could check out my YouTube channel, I have lots of videos like this one!
