How to Make Cream Cheese Crust?
First, take out the cream cheese eggs and bring to room temperature.
Next, preheat the oven to 375° F.
Then, line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set the baking sheet aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, eggs, Parmesan cheese, 1 teaspoon dried basil and oregano, and ½ teaspoon garlic powder. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
Then, whisk the ingredients together until the mixture is smooth and completely blended.
Next, spread the cream cheese mixture (aka pie dough) onto the prepared baking sheet into the desired shape and thickness. You can make round, square, or rectangle.
With the rectangle, you can make a long skinny pizza to make it an appetizer.
For thicker crusts, reduce oven temperature to 350° F and increase baking times for best results.
Place the cream cheeses crust in the pre-heated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until slightly puffed and golden brown.
Check halfway through cooking time to ensure the crust bakes evenly and does not become too brown.
