Keto Thin Crust Pizza (Low Carb, Primal, Gluten Free)

Posted by

Aah, pizza… my very favorite food and the thing I missed most after adopting a low-carb lifestyle. Cauliflower seemed to be a popular crust alternative when I first began experimenting with pseudo-carb pizzas, but it never came out quite right for me and was less than desirable after being re-heated. Enter the cheese crust of this Keto Pizza!

This cheese-based crust resembles the taste and texture of a thin-crust wheat pizza and reheats surprisingly well. Any toppings of your choice would work well on this bad boy and the possibilities are endless!

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ C mild cheese (mozzarella, cheddar or Fontina are a few options that work well)
  • ¼ C almond meal/flour
  • 2T flax meal
  • 1 egg
  • Italian herbs to taste
  • Toppings of your choice (ensure any meats are fully cooked prior to topping pizza)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F
  2. Mix all ingredients except toppings in a mixing bowl
  3. Place the mixed “dough” between two sheets of wax paper and roll thin
  4. Remove the top layer of paper and bake on a cookie or pizza sheet for 12-15 minutes until cheese begins to orange. For an extra crispy crust, flip and bake for an additional few minutes
  5. Add your choice of sauce and toppings, brush crust with garlic butter, and bake another few minutes (salsa is a great low-carb sauce alternative)

  1. I’ve never left a comment on a recipe before but this pizza crust is awesome so it’s definitely worth my first comment. Thank you for sharing!

  2. I hate when someone wants to change a recipe. But I cannot have flax, is there something I can sub or does the recipe need it? Thank you so very much.

    1. Hi there! I’m not sure what would work well, but I think some additional almond meal/flour should be ok. If you try this, let me know how it goes!

  3. I tried making this at home, however, you cannot make this on wax paper. I had to throw the entire pizza out because the wax paper had melted and stuck to the pizza. It looked and smelled amazing but just could not eat it. I recommend if you try making this use parchment paper or a Silpad baking sheet.

  4. HI! Love this recipe, thus is my 2nd Sunday making it. Might become a tradition! Have you ever tried freezing this crust? Just thinking how nice it would be to just grab one out when I wanted one! TIA!
