With a low carb pizza crust and a low carb pizza sauce, you get a keto pizza! A year ago, if you would have told me that there’s a low carb pizza recipe that tastes better than regular pizza, I would neither believe you nor want to try it. Today, I’m here telling you that there is such a thing and you can be eating it within an hour. And it really does taste as great (I think even better) than regular, carb loaded pizza.
We used this awesome stromboli crust recipe for our pizza crust (minus the butter). The crust is great because it’s pretty low carb and has its own delicious flavors from the spices making the pizza even more unique. Fennel, garlic, and red pepper flakes all go great with pizza sauce and melted cheese and we love how interesting and complex the flavors are- its like a whole new kind of pizza!
If you aren’t a huge fan of these spices, you can try using dried basil instead of fennel and dried oregano in place of the red pepper flakes. This will give you a more traditional, Italian taste to the pizza crust that may satisfy your craving for pizza even more. YOu can also skip the spices for a more basic pizza crust. All of these options will still keep the crust low carb and perfect for your keto pizza. The crust is also nice and thin which gives the pizza a little bit of a crunchy edge that we love.

Even with a thin crust, it’s very sturdy and quite filling which is great because many crust recipes we’ve tried on keto were super soggy and pizzas aren’t meant to be soft! You need to be able to pick up that slice and put it right in your mouth without the pizza falling apart! No one likes a pizza you have to eat with a fork…
If you like spicy food, you can replace the mozzarella with pepper jack cheese, it’ll give the crust that extra kick you’re looking for. There are so many ways to make this low carb pizza recipe your own!
All the toppings you put on your pizza are totally optional but something we recommend you try with your next pizza is some ricotta cheese. It’s warm, super creamy and makes every bite that much more delightful.
In all honesty, we haven’t tasted such a delicious pizza in a long time, so we made these 2 days in a row and had friends confirm our crazy suspicions that homemade pizza can truly be better than a pizza from a top NYC pizzeria. Hurry up and make this and tell us what you thought! Don’t forget to use our homemade pizza sauce recipe.

I’m finally taking my DT2 seriously. This helps. Thanks for a delicious recipe.
You’re very welcome, Kim!
I made this pizza tonight-vegan style and it was absolutely the best vegan crust/ Gluten free crust Ive ever made and had. I am going to add less salt though. I think the saltiness clashed with the saltiness of the vegan cheese! thanks so much!!!!!!
You’re very welcome!
Just as Kari’s comment mentioned, the carbs listed for 2 slices is more than the whole pizza which makes no sense. This must be a typo.
The carbs listed for 2 slices includes all the sauce and toppings. The carbs for the whole crust are for just the crust alone (in case you want to add your own, different, toppings or divide into larger or smaller slices).
I must be reading something wrong – carbs for the whole pizza are less than the carbs in 2 slices?
We provided the nutrition for 2 slices, as the recipes states, and also for the whole crust alone (without the toppings we used). So if you decide to follow the recipe but use your own preferred toppings, you can calculate the macros for yourself 🙂
In the recipe directions it says to add “almond flour, coconut flour, and egg” to the soft mozzarella. Egg? There is no egg in the ingredients list. Is the ingredients list deficient in omitting the egg, or are the instructions wrong? I’m going to try this recipe with the egg and see how it turns out.
There is definitely an egg thrown in to the pizza dough! Can’t imagine what happened to it in the recipe but I’ve added it in. Thank you for pointing that out!
Hi, I made this last night and it turned out great. It tasted really good and it was so quick to make! My Husband and kids loved it. Changed the spices to 1/2 tsp sea salt, 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1 tsp onion powder. Next time I will add oregano. Thanks so much.
Awesome! Glad you and your family enjoyed!
