mosleep — Actually the recipe says it is for 6 servings so 24 carb grams in the flour works out to 4 carbs and 4 tomatoes in 6 servings would be another 4-5 carbs each serving depending on how large the tomatoes were so 9 carbs per serving of 6 servings is about right on. What I don't understand is the need for fake eggs. I would use almond flour and cut out at least half those carbs and bring it down to 4-5 carbs from just the fresh tomatoes. Don't know who put the asparagus as a topping. Way too cheffy for my tastes.

the nutritional information on this recipe can't be correct. It says there is one serving per pizza, with only 9 gm of carb for the whole pizza. The quarter cup of flour alone is almost 24 gms of carb alone. I would try the recipe with out the flour (or use protein powder instead of flour) to get a truly low carb pizza.
