"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup almond flour
2 Tbsp cream cheese
1 egg, beaten
Parchment paper (super important!)

Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
Put mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Stir and place in microwave for another 30 seconds.
Stir in flour and egg. Mix well.
Wet hands and spread dough thin onto parchment paper. Parchment paper is super important, Iíve run out and tried substitutes and the results were disastrous! So definitely, keep parchment paper on hand!
Poke tiny holes in dough with a fork to avoid air bubbles. Total cook time 15-20 minutes. Serving size is half the recipe.

Recipe variations:
Pizza: bake dough 10-12 minutes. Add sauce, cheese and toppings and bake an additional 8-10 minutes or until cheese is browned.

Crackers/chips: roll out dough extremely thin. Use a pizza cutter to cut into 2 inch squares. Place on parchment paper and bake 10-15 minutes. After 12 minutes, watch careful to ensure that the edges donít burn.

Bread: roll out dough into 1/4 inch thick square, then use pizza cutter to cut into 4 squares. Bake 18-20 minutes.
