I made this tonight.. as the toppings I put cheese, pepparoni, and fresh spinach.  I included the review below because the reviewer mentioned she altered some ingredients..I made as it is listed below...it was really good!

I know this egg-based crust is going to sound strange, but I urge you to trust me and try this.  I've tried a whole lot of low-carb pizza crusts over the years, and this is really the best one.  No, it isn't like regular, but it's really good.  I got the recipe on which this is based from the Protein Power Forum, and have altered it somewhat.
Based on some of the comments, I'm now realizing that some people are expecting a crisp crust, or a thin crust.  This crust is neither crisp nor thin.  However, you can make it thinner by using fewer eggs and less cream cheese.
6 eggs
6 oz cream cheese (3/4 package) at room temperature
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1½ teaspoon oregano or other Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon salt
pinches of black and/or cayenne pepper
1 cup (or a little more) shredded Italian cheeses, at least half of which is a hard cheese (Parmesan, Assagio)
Heat the oven to 350° F.
1) Be sure the cream cheese is at about room temperature.  Using a regular blender, food processor, or (my preferred) stick blender, mix the egg and cream cheese until well blended.  Add the salt and spices and blend again.
2) Spread cheese in bottom of well-buttered 9X13 pan. I often use an Italian blend such as Trader Joe's Quattro Formaggio. Pour egg mixture over the cheese, and bake for 22-25 minutes, or until the top is browning.
3) Remove from oven, add pizza toppings, and bake until done - about another 10-15 minutes.
