I can pretty much write a book on Italian Food. I know the ins and the outs. And what’s more than that is I have an appetite to eat my way from one end of Italy to the other. One of the hardest things for me about Keto was adjusting to having no Pasta and Bread. Fortunately, there are some outstanding Keto alternatives that make up the difference and this Pizza crust is one of them.
There are a few different Keto crust options that work really well, especially the Cauliflower versions. However, in order to get the moisture content right you have to do a lot of work to the Cauliflower; still good, but lots of time and effort. This the best crust for the taste, texture and time! I strongly suggest that you give this Pizza a try and have some fun with topping varieties! This is also a great way to get your Kids to eat Keto. They won’t even realize that they are!
1/2 Cup Flax Meal
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (cheese at room temperature)
1 tablespoon italian seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1/2 to 1 teaspoon white pepper – if you don’t like pepper you can omit
1 cup blanched almond flour
2 large whole eggs
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a food processor combine all the ingredients. Process till you have a smooth consistency throughout your dough.
Place pizza dough in the middle of a cookie sheet lined with a silicone mat. We have found that the silicone mat absolutely works the best. If not you can use parchment. But there is still a chance of the dough sticking.
Form the dough by hand to a 1/4 of an inch pizza round. If the dough sticks you can wet your hands to make the forming process easier.
After you are done forming the crust cover the pizza round with parchment paper. Smooth out the dough so that you have no fingerprint marks showing.
Score the dough with a fork. This will keep the dough from bubbling up and give you a smoother look overall.
Bake the crust at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 min.
Once out of the oven flip the crust onto a cookie sheep lined with parchment. The silicone matt will assist in the smooth release of your pizza crust. Let cool for 20 min before adding the toppings.
You can top your keto pizza with anything your heart desires. In our video we show what we like for toppings, however the sky is the limit.
This crust is fantastic for your weekly keto meal prep. When freezing them we make them in a size that fits a gallon freezer bag. The smaller serving size is easier to bag and freeze. During our work week I just move them from the freezer to the fridge in the morning. At night I add the pizza sauce and toppings. Serve with a salad. Dinner in less then 15 min. Best part you look like a rock star!
