  • In a medium bowl, microwave the shredded mozzarella and softened cream cheese for 40 seconds. Combine with a wooden spoon or spatula until fully incorporated. Microwave again for 15-20 seconds if too stiff.
  • In a small bowl stir the almond flour, Xanthan Gum, and baking powder until combined. Add the beaten eggs and the dry ingredients to the medium bowl with the cheese mixture. Stir to incorporate throughly and then use your hands to form into a ball. (may need to wet hands to form).
  • Dust a cutting board with a little almond flour and divide your dough ball into three equal parts. Use your hands to press each dough ball into a round 7 inch crust on top of each parchment paper. Place each crust and parchment paper into a lightly greased pizza pan.
  • Preheat air fryer to 350 degrees. Cook each crust in their pan for 6 minutes. Remove from the air fryer, discard the parchment paper, and cook the other side for 5 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack.

  • Top each with 1/3 of each ingredient until ready for the air fryer.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees and cook each pizza for 5 minutes. You can open your Air fryer and check it along the way – do not burn. Sprinkle with parmesan and serve hot.


  1. All air fryers vary in terms of temperature and wattage. Experiment and adjust recipe times accordingly to match your air fryer. 
  2. The nutrition calculation showing 8 g of carbs is for the entire 7 inch pizza (4 small cuts). Using different toppings will change the carb count. 
  3. You can freeze the partially cooked crusts for up to two months. We suggest separating them with parchment paper and seal well in a zip lock bag before freezing. You should bring to room temperature before using. You can also place them back in your Air Fryer and heat for 2-3 minutes at 250-300 degrees to thaw.
