It's from the Atkins website. I only did the crust by recipe and did my own toppings. Actually half and half cuz I love mushrooms and pepperoni but my mom doesn't and she's visiting so I modified it to my own needs. My one year old also chowed down really quickly on it but it seemed to go right through him lol. http://community.atkins.com/di...

It won't put the whole address to the part of the atkins site so I'll see if I can just put the whole recipe down...

MUSHROOM AND GARLIC PIZZA Crust: 8 ounces cream cheese, softened 3 eggs 1 cup pork rind crumbs, about 3 ounces 1/4 cup parmesan cheese 1 teaspoon garlic powder 8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded Topping: 1 pound mushrooms, sliced 3 cloves garlic, minced 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil Salt, to taste 8 ounces smoked mozzarella cheese, shredded Cut a circle of parchment paper to fit a 14-inch round pizza pan and slightly going up the sides of the pan. Spray the pizza pan with cooking spray to help the parchment stay put. Place the parchment paper in the pan. For the crust, whisk the cream cheese and eggs until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients except mozzarella until well combined. Stir in the mozzarella. Drop the dough by large spoonfuls all over parchment-lined pan. Cover with two sheets of plastic wrap that have been crossed so that the entire surface is covered. With a rolling pin, roll dough to the edges of the pan making it an even thickness. Remove the plastic wrap. With a rubber spatula, push the dough away from the edges of the pan by 1/4-1/2". If the dough goes all the way to the edges, it can bubble over in the oven or go under the parchment paper. Bake at 425º 20 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes or chill several hours. For the topping, heat the butter or oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté the mushrooms and garlic until tender, seasoning lightly with salt. Turn the heat to high; cook and stir constantly until any excess liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat immediatly. Adjust the seasoning. Sprinkle the cheese over the baked crust and top with the mushrooms. Bake at 375º about 10 minutes or until toppings are hot and bubbly. Makes 8 servings Can be frozen Per Serving: 394 Calories; 32g Fat; 24g Protein; 5g Carbohydrate; 1g Dietary Fiber; 4g Net Carbs This is based on an recipe from Rachael Ray's magazine. I used the Pork Rind Pizza crust as the base, but you could use your favorite low carb crust and adjust the carbs accordingly. Rachael used a combination of shiitake and cremini mushrooms and topped hers with Swiss and mozzarella cheeses. I had some smoked mozzarella on hand so I used that. There is no sauce on this pizza. I thought sauce would take away from the flavor of the mushrooms and smoked cheese. I think it could have been cheesier but there is already a lot of cheese in the crust so I'd prefer not to add even more calories and carbs

I tried to separate it out but for some reason it just keeps pushing it all together... If you have a question just let me know...
