The crust to this Keto pizza is made from fathead dough. Which is a great low carb way to make pizza crust! It can also be used to make bagels, with the addition of baking powder. Bagels were the first things I ever made using fat head dough and they were SO good. So of course, using that dough to make pizza crust was up next! This recipe is quick and easy to make, which is perfect for a busy day, or weeknight meal.
How to make Keto Pizza:
Melt the mozzarella and cream cheese together. The easiest way is just to do this in the microwave, or you could set up a double boiler system on your stovetop. Don’t put it right into a saucepan on direct heat.
Add in the eggs, salt, and coconut flour. Stir it all together. The cheese should still be nice and warm through this step to help the dough mix together.
Place the pizza dough on a prepared baking sheet, and spread out with your fingers or use a rolling pin, to about 1/4 of an inch thick.
Bake the crust for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, add the pizza sauce and toppings of choice.
Bake for an additional 10 minutes.
Some tips for making this Keto pizza crust:
Use pre-shredded part skim mozzarella cheese. If you use fresh mozzarella it will have too much liquid when you heat it up and the dough won’t come together.
If the dough is too sticky to work with, put a little bit of oil on your hands while you work with it.
You can substitute almond flour for the coconut flour in this recipe.
Knead the dough with a stand mixer, food processor or your hands. I find that the hands is the easiest method, you can squeeze and knead the dough together.
Low Carb Topping Ideas:
