Ingredients

Pizza Crust:

  • 1 bag shirataki angel hair noodles
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

Toppings:

  • 1/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 oz part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 oz uncured pepperoni (I used Applegate)

Instructions

  • Place the shirataki noodles in a colander and rinse well, about 30 seconds. Use clean kitchen shears to cut them in half.
  • Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, 2-3 minutes. Add the rinsed shirataki noodles and dry-roast them for 1-2 minus, adding no oil to the skillet, until the noodles are visibly dry and make a squeaking sound when moved in the skillet. Turn heat off.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, parmesan, salt, pepper, oregano and garlic powder. Add the dried shirataki noodles and mix well.
  • Re-heat the same skillet you used to dry the noodles over medium-high heat. Brush with 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Add the shirataki mixture, spreading it evenly and pressing down. Cook, pressing down periodically with a spatula, until the bottom is golden-brown, about 10 minutes.
  • Invert the crust onto a plate, brush the skillet with 1 more teaspoon of olive oil, then slide the shirataki crust back into the skillet. Cook 10 more minutes on the second side, pressing down periodically, or until golden-brown and crisp. Remove onto a broiler-safe pan.
  • Heat your broiler on high. Top the shirataki pizza crust with pizza sauce, mozzarella and pepperoni (or anything else you like on your pizza). Broil for about 2 minutes, just until the cheese is bubbly.

Notes

Shirataki noodles are not for everyone. In some, they may cause unpleasant abdominal symptoms.
