Creamy Veggie Appetizer Pizza

Appetizer Veggie Pizza

We’re always looking for ways to make our favorite foods a little healthier and easier on the blood sugars. This recipe from our Continuing Medical Education Manager Sarah turns pizza into an appetizer and offers flexibility to use your favorite add-ons. The crust is sturdy and can hold up to a pile of toppings.


  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 2 eggs
  • ~6 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1-2 tablespoons seasoning (I used Green Goddess seasoning blend from Trader Joe’s, but a dried Ranch dressing packet is also delicious)
  • Finely chopped veggies of choice (I used shredded carrots, sweet bell peppers, broccoli, and cherry tomatoes)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a small baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together the eggs, almond flour, and seasoning in a medium bowl.
  3. In a small saucepan, lightly melt the shredded mozzarella cheese and 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese until it is one gooey mass. Let it cool for a few minutes, then fold into the egg and flour mixture until evenly combined. This may look and feel odd, but trust that it will come together!
  4. Pour the mixture onto the baking sheet and lightly shape it into a flat, small-to-medium-sized pizza crust.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Let it cool and then spread the remaining cream cheese on top. Sprinkle with more seasoning, if desired, and add the chopped veggies.
  7. Cut into slices and enjoy!
