low carb pizzaThis parsnip pizza crust is a new creation I love to make for our healthy pizza Friday nights. This low carb pizza crust recipe is made with only 4 ingredients and keep a lovely golden colour when baked like if it was a classic pizza crust. It is a great alternative to cauliflower pizza crust and a big success with kids too. Your friends will never believe that this pizza crust is made of vegetables!

It is Friday night and Christmas holidays kick off tonight! I am so excited to have my whole little family around me for 2 weeks! Anyway, as every Fridays in my house we eat homemade finger food. Today I prepared this parsnip pizza crust recipe. I inspired myself from my popular cauliflower pizza crust recipe except that here I did not precooked the vegetables in the microwave which save time in the kitchen. I still has some homemade BBQ sauce from the BBQ pulled carrots sandwiches I made this week so I used the BBQ sauce as a pizza base. I garnish the pizza with everything I had on hands. Some fresh tomatoes slices, leftover of grilled eggplants, cherry tomatoes and extra cheese.  I bake the pizza crust first and then return to the oven with the toppings for 10 more minutes.

I top up the baked pizza with extra fresh product including freshly diced avocado, lime slices, spoon full of garlic greek yoghurt and extra drizzle of homemade BBQ sauce. If you never used lime on a pizza, it is time to break the rules! You will be amazed by how lime slices really add a delicious taste to summer pizza!

To make this recipe I highly recommend to prebake the crust for 15 minutes then garnish and return to the oven for extra 10 minutes. I slightly over cooked the borders of my first pizza as you can see on the pictures the sides lost their lovely golden colours after the second baking time. I set up my oven at 200C which seems a bit too high for this crust. I will recommend to bake the pizza crust at only 180C to keep the beautiful golden colour of this parsnip pizza crust. If you love cheese and low carb pizza recipe you will really love this recipe! It makes a yummy appetizer! Enjoy!

    • Hi Martine, I am so sorry for the confusion. There was an issue in the tag display and it is fixed now. This recipe is indeed vegetarian and not vegan. Many thanks for noticing this to me. Enjoy the recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine

      Hi Anne, I never made the recipe cheese free and it really helps the batter to hold together. However replacing the cheese by 1/2 cup of all purpose flour may work too. It might be a bit more crispy and dry though. Let me know if you try ! Happy New Year. Carine.
