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.
