Pizza the Atkins way

Brace yourselves, it's PIZZA! Here is an awesome way to help with your pizza craving. I have been forever searching for a pizza substitute while on introduction phase of the Atkins diet. Here it is!
I wanted to note that you could also use cheddar for this recipe as well. Also if you'd like to not add SO much cheese, keep the "crust" as is and after you put your meat and veggies on sprinkle top with grated Parmesan or Romano, then pop in back in the oven.
