Cheese Crust Pizza 


  • Pizza sauce in jar or tube
  • 4–6 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded 
  • A couple pinches garlic powder
  • A couple pinches basil (or shredded fresh basil)
  • Toppings of your choice
  • 6 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded 
  • 2 eggs 
  • Pinch garlic powder 
  • Pinch basil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or nonstick foil. In a small bowl, mix the crust ingredients well. Dump the crust mixture into the pan and use plastic wrap on your hand and fingers to spread in an even, thin layer.

  2. Place pan in center rack of an oven and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, until edges are golden brown. Remove the pan.

  3. For the pizza, choose whatever toppings you want: green pepper, onion, fresh mushrooms, spinach, black olives, crumbled sausage, ground beef, pepperoni, etc.

  4. Sauté meats and vegetables lightly. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce over the crust and top with about two-thirds of the cheese. Arrange the toppings, garlic and basil over the cheese as desired. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese over the toppings to help hold them on.

  5. Keep the oven rack in the center position. Turn on the broiler. Broil the pizza until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 4–5 minutes.
