One appliance. Three ingredients. Tonnes of flavour. Almost no carbs and very little fat.

If you ask me, this crispy little sucker is near perfect.

You may be wondering how a pizza could possibly be low on carbs AND fat; two of the main components of traditional pizza. I simply replaced the carby base with a puffy, crispy cheese one and eliminated fat by draining the cheese of most of its fat.

Step 1: Ingredients

You will need:

about 75g (2.65 ounces) cheddar or similar cheese

dry herbs - I've just used dry mixed herbs.

~ 2 teaspoons of tomato paste

Step 2: Removing Fat

Break your cheese up into chunks and put it in a microwave safe container.

Microwave on low-medium for about 3 minutes and 30 seconds. The time may vary between microwaves so I would check after about 2 minutes.

The fat should be completely separated and the cheese should just be started to colour.

Step 3: Drain Away Fat

Squeeze all of the liquid fat out of the cheese. This is necessary to make the base puffy and crispy.

I used a spoon to press down on the cheese and drained the fat into a little container. I've found the fat can be reserved and used as clarified butter. Waste not what not!

Look how much fat came out!

Step 4: Flatten

Then put the still hot cheese between two sheets of baking paper and flattened it to about 2mm (1/10 inch).

Wipe away any more fat with paper towel or a tea towel.

Step 5: Add Toppings

Spread on your tomato paste and sprinkle over herbs

Step 6: Puff and Crisp in Microwave

Microwave for about 40 seconds on high.

If it has not puffed by this stage put it in for another 15 seconds at a time.

It will become crispier as it cools slightly.

Step 7: Check Out Those Puffy Crispy Bubbles!

All done! Enjoy!
