Looking for a low carb pizza recipe that is quick and easy to prepare? Look no further than this Keto Pizza recipe featuring a delicious homemade sauce and low carb “crust.” Done in just 20 minutes, it’s an easy keto-friendly recipe you’ll want to make again and again.
The one food I have missed most since starting the keto diet is pizza. Gooey cheese, crispy crust, tasty toppings…there’s just so much to love about pizza. But then there’s all the carbs…which makes it off-limits while on keto.
I’ve been craving pizza like crazy lately, so I decided that I had to come up with a low carb option or I might break down and eat a whole pizza…which would not be good. After experimenting with a few different recipes, I think I found the perfect one. I’ll be honest, it’s not the same as traditional pizza, but it will definitely fill you up and satisfy your craving for pizza!
The crust is made out of a mixture of eggs, mozzarella cheese, and almond flour (coconut flour works too). You simply mix it all up, spread it into a circle on a pan layered with parchment paper, and bake for 15 minutes or until golden.
Then you remove the crust from the oven, add your sauce and toppings, and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes until the cheese is melted. Easy peasy!
The secret to this pizza being so delicious is the homemade sauce. I used canned tomato paste and added Dorot Gardens Garlic and Basil to give it more flavor. I love adding fresh herbs to my meals, but washing, chopping, and peeling them is messy and time consuming. Dorot Gardens makes it so much easier!
Dorot Gardens picks their herbs at peak freshness and then flash freezes them in convenient trays within 90 minutes of harvest. The trays can be frozen for up to two years, which means you can have fresh garlic, onions and herbs year round. You have all the benefits of fresh herbs, without all the work and all the waste.
It’s so easy to pop the cubes out and add them to marinades, sauces and drinks. And since one cube is equal to one teaspoon, it’s really easy to add the perfect amount to recipes. They are perfect for adding more flavor to all of your keto recipes, and the best part is they have little to no carbs!
This Keto Pizza recipe is sure to hit the spot if you are on a low carb diet! It’s cheesy, full of flavor, and best of all filling. The crust is more dense than traditional pizza, so you don’t have to eat as much to feel full. This recipe feeds two, but can easily be doubled to feed four. Try it out and let me know what you think!
Quick & Easy Low Carb Keto Pizza
Looking for a low carb pizza recipe that is quick and easy to prepare? Look no further than this Keto Pizza recipe featuring a delicious homemade sauce and low carb "crust." Done in just 20 minutes, it's an easy keto-friendly recipe you'll want to make again and again.
- 3 large eggs
- 3 tbsp almond flour (or coconut flour)
- 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
- 3 tbsp tomato paste
- 1 cube (1 tsp) Dorot Garlic
- 1 cube (1 tsp) Dorot Basil
- 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
- pepperoni slices, sausage, olives, etc.
- salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400F. Layer a baking sheet or pizza pan with parchment paper, or spray with non-stick spray to prevent crust from sticking.
Combine eggs in a medium bowl and whisk until fluffy. Add flour and cheese and stir well to combine.
Pour mixture onto parchment paper and spread evenly to form a circle. Depending on how thin or thick you like your crust, you will want to flatten it out to your desired thickness - keep in mind it will rise a little bit.
Place in oven and bake for 15 minutes or until crust is golden. While crust is baking, combine tomato paste, garlic, and basil to form sauce.
Remove crust from oven and layer with sauce, cheese, and toppings. Then return to oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Remove from oven, slice into pieces, and enjoy!
