What is lavash bread pizza?
Lavash breast is a soft flatbread often used to make sandwiches and wraps. Lavash is thinner than flatbread and the Joseph's Lavash Bread only contains 6g net carbs per half a sheet.
Making this pizza with simple ingredients like fresh minced garlic, oregano, mozzarella, and salami slices, doesn't get any easier.
- Lavash Bread: super-thin low carb crust makes this pizza extra crispy and irresistible
- Olive Oil: the base of the sauce for this low carb lavash bread pizza
- Mozzarella: keeping it super simple and using freshly grated mozzarella
- Salami: we used thin slices of genoa salami and cut them into ribbons
- Grated Parmesan: adding a nutty and salty flavor to give this pizza just the right amount of pizzazz
- Minced Garlic and Chili Pepper Flakes: mixed with the olive oil and brushed into every divot of this super-soft lavash bread.
