Keto, meet pizza. In today’s recipe, I will tell you my take on how to make your pizza without the carbs. Making pizza at home can be a pleasant work for people who are following keto, religiously. It’s inexpensive, astonishingly versatile, and perfect for storing.
With a little bit of planning and work, you can turn into a perfect pizza maker, even if you’ve never made pizza from scratch. Do you know whats my favorite things about homemade pizza? You can control all the ingredients and the toppings.
It’s whatever you want whether it is a simple pepperoni, cheese, and tomato-sauce version, or a loaded cheese-fantasy. Pick the crust that suits you best, make changes to the toppings to fit your favorites, and don’t scrimp on the cheese.
Go ahead and try sun-dried cheery tomato paste or a jar of pasta sauce or pizza sauce instead of tomato paste, but make sure there is no sugar. Low-carb and keto topping varieties are endless: salami, mushrooms, blue cheese, stripped chicken, sautéed onions, goat milk cheese and a lot more! you know your favorites right?
Quick Keto Pizza
- mozzarella cheese
- cream cheese
- almond flour
- baking powder
- The next step is to simply add in the egg, almond flour, baking powder, and herbs. Mix until completely incorporated. The dough will seem sticky but that is fine.
- To roll out the dough you have to options: because the dough is going to be soft and sticky, you can either roll it between two sheets of parchment paper or wet or grease your hands and pat it down flat with your hands.
- The dough will need to be baked twice, once for the crust to bake and the next for the cheese and toppings. The first time it is baked for 10 minutes. While it’s baking the first time, this would be a good time to prepare the toppings!
- This is my favorite part and where you can get really creative and make the pizza your own. Add your favorite sauces and toppings to the pizza crust and return to the oven to bake for another 5-8 minutes or until the crust is done to your desired doneness and the cheese is gooey and melted!
