Keto Pizza Dough

The only hard thing for me about going keto this year has been is that I miss bread, pizza, cheese & crackers. I don’t need them every day, just once in a while. This recipe for keto-friendly pizza is as close to the real thing as I’ve found. Really, I was surprised how much this looks, tastes, smells and “chews” like a regular pizza. An added benefit: The ingredients are so rich that one or two slices I am full! And with net cards of 2 grams per slice (not counting whatever toppings you choose), this is guilt and gluten free.

Keto Pizza Crust

Quick and easy to make, you wouldn't know this isn't the real deal! Keto friendly and makes a very rich and rewarding pizza. Each slice has 4 grams carbs, 2 of which are dietary fiber.
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Course: Pizza
Cuisine: American
Keyword: keto
Servings: 8 slices


  • 2 cups shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning


  • Your favorite toppings & more cheese


  • Preheat oven to 450F
  • Microwave mozzarella and cream cheese in a large bowl until mixable, about 45 seconds
  • Remove from microwave, add in egg, almond flour, baking powder, seasonings. Mix well with a spoon or your hands. Crust will be a doughy ball at this point.
  • Measure out two sheets of parchment paper, place the ball between the sheets and roll out until about 1/4" thick.
  • Remove top layer of parchment, place the crust and bottom layer on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes. You may need to poke some holes in the crust with a fork if it starts to bubble up.
  • Remove from the oven, add your toppings, and bake for another 8-10 minutes until cheese is bubbly and crust browns a bit.
  • Cut into wedges and enjoy!

      Hi Lois, I haven’t been able to keep up with this blog for about a year as a few other projects are dominating my time right now. I don’t have a way for people to subscribe at this point, sorry about that. But… I keep taking food photos and setting aside killer recipes that I plan to post once I can catch a break. Enjoy the pizza recipe, it’s really a good one. And it’s so rich due to all the cheese that I’m satisfied with a couple of pieces! (I’m not opposed to leftovers.) Deb
