Low Carb Pizza!
One of our favorite recipes in our 3 Day Keto Meal Plan is this low carb pizza. We call it “Pizza Express” because there’s nothing quicker or easier! You only need 5 ingredients, 2 of which are pretty much optional. We love making this for friends when they come over because the entire thing is ready to eat in under 10 minutes. In fact, we can magically pump them out faster than you can finish just one. Our kitchen becomes a keto pizza factory (the best kind of factory).
The key to the speed and ease of this recipe is the crust- it’s made out of cheese. That’s it. No eggs or flours to combine beforehand, just plain old, delicious shredded mozzarella cheese. The trick is to let your crust caramelize in your pan before piling on your pizza toppings. This is a similar technique used in cheese-shelled tacos… but that’s a recipe for later ;).
The result is akin to a thin crust pizza- crisp, yet chewy and strong enough to transport pizza toppings to you safely!
Feel free to add your favorite toppings to your low carb pizza. We kept it simple with a few slices of pepperoni, just jalapenos, mushrooms, peppers and bacon would all be great, low carb additions. As for seasoning, we added basil and oregano for authentic Italian flavor, but red pepper flakes, Parmesan and garlic powder wouldn’t hurt either.
Let us know in the comments what your favorite keto pizza toppings are; we’re always looking for new recipe inspiration!
