Pizza can be one of the hardest things for a low carb dieter to give up. As a matter of fact, there are times I still want my regular pizza crust and none of the mozzarella pizza crust.

Enjoying our favorite meals while on Keto

Our decision to eat Keto was due to Grumpy being diagnosed with diabetes. It was easier for me at first, but as time went on, Grumpy has found it easier to follow the low carb lifestyle.

Part of the reason it has not been as difficult as we expected is because I have been able to make recipes like this pizza crust. Being able to still enjoy pizza has been a big plus!

Low Carb Pizza Crust Recipe FAQ’s

What is low carb pizza crust recipe made with?

This recipe is made with part-skimmed mozzarella cheese, cream cheese, almond flour, and egg. There are optional seasonings added to the crust to give it a little bit of flavoring.

Is low carb pizza crust thick and chewy?

Unfortunately, low carb pizza is lacking the gluten from flour. The gluten is what gives pizza its yeasty, doughy texture. This recipe will not be soft and doughy like a regular pizza crust. Rather it will be more like a crispy thin crust pizza.

Can I pick the pizza slice up with my hands to eat?

Low carb pizza crust is not as sturdy as one made with regular flour. However, once the pizza has cooled slightly, you can still consume it by using your hands.

What does low carb pizza crust taste like?

This low carb pizza crust is similar to a thin crust pizza. It has a flavor closer to pizza crust due to the almond flour in the dough.

Flatten the pizza crust by pressing with your hands, or using a rolling pin. If your crust sticks to your hands or rolling pin, spray your hands or rolling pin with a little non stick cooking spray to prevent sticking.

Before placing pizza crust in the oven, prick several holes with the tines of a fork. This will help prevent “bubbling.” Place pizza crust in oven and bake for 10 minutes. Watch carefully, if crust begins to puff up on top (bubbling), prick with a fork to deflate.

Take pizza crust out of oven and carefully flip it over onto the cookie sheet. Return to oven and bake another 10 minutes until lightly browned.

Tips on ingredients

  • Use a good quality mozzarella cheese and buy pre-shredded cheese for the crust. The little bit of starch on the cheese shreds actually help when making this dough. And, it’s not enough to add too many carbs.
  • Pre-measure your ingredients and have them in place to add when appropriate. This will ensure you get your ingredients in quickly and can start working the dough while it is still hot.

Tips when making the recipe

  • If you find your dough is getting hard to combine, place the dish back in the microwave and heat it another 15-30 seconds or until the cheese is soft enough to continue stirring the almond flour ingredients in.
  • When rolling out your dough, place a non-adhesive shelf liner under the cookie sheet to prevent it from sliding across your table when rolling.
  • If your dough sticks to your hands or rolling pin, you can use cooking spray to help or dampen your hands with water.

Do you have a sweet tooth that kicks in after dinner?

I don’t know about you, but Grumpy and I both have a sweet tooth. When this happens, I like to have quick and easy dessert recipe. Some of my go to recipes are Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake. This recipe is made in a mug in the microwave and is freakin fabulous! I also love these Chocolate Peanut Butter Fat Bombs. I am not kidding you, they taste just like a no bake cookie and they are also no bake!
