In my town, we have a style of pizza that we call "sheet" pizza, where the crust is thick and is cut into individual slices. There are many options to a sheet pizza, traditional cheese, pepperoni, veggies, and one of my favorite "White Garlic". This totally reminds of a white garlic sheet pizza. Cheesy, garlicky, on a thick crust. Totally comforting to me.

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum

* The sugar will be eaten by yeast, so no extra carbs

Cheesy Topping:

2 Tablespoons butter, melted

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. In a large bowl, combine almond and coconut flour, salt, baking powder, garlic powder and xanthan gum. Whisk or still well so there are no lumps in your dry mix.

3. In a small cup or bowl, combine warm water and honey (or coconut sugar) and stir until dissolved, then add yeast. Set aside, after 5 or 10 minutes, the yeast should begin to form a creamy foam on the surface of the water.

4. In a medium bowl add egg whites. Beat until fluff with whisk or hand mixer

5. To the flour mixture, add avocado (or olive) oil and yeast-water mixture. Stir well with a rubber spatula. Fold in beaten eggs and continue to mix.

6. Add in the 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese and mix gently with your spatula until a nice dough is formed and cheese is mixed well throughout.

7. Place batter into a prepared 9×9 glass baking dish or cake pan. Spread dough evenly with a spatula. Note;: the dough will be soft.

8. Bake at 400 degrees for approx. 15-17 minutes or until the sides of the crust turn golden brown. Remove from oven. Set aside.

9. In a bowl, melt the butter, add garlic powder and salt. Mix well, then brush over the top of the garlic bread base. Be sure to get the butter over every inch!

10. Top the bread with shredded mozzarella and American/colby jack cheese. Sprinkle the top of the cheese with dried oregano and dried parsley (you can could use Italian seasoning as well).

11. Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. For final 3 minutes, turn broiler on to brown the cheese. Remove from oven and let bread stand for 5-10 minutes before serving Note: You can make the garlic bread base ahead. When ready to bake, top with the melted garlic butter and cheeses.
