Keto Pizza – How To Make Low Carb Pizza That Tastes AMAZING

So you’ve been on the keto diet for a while and you’re starting to miss some of your favorite foods. Thinking about that last crispy, chewy, cheesy slice of pizza you had is enough to make your mouth water.



The good news is that you don’t have to give up pizza completely just because you’re keto. With a few simple substitutions, you can make a delicious low carb pizza that tastes just as good as the real thing.

Here’s our tried-and-tested guide for making low-carb pizza—from the crust, to the sauce, to the toppings.

How To Make Keto Pizza Crust

Traditional pizza dough is made with wheat flour, which is high in carbs and not allowed on the keto diet. To make a low carb pizza crust you’ll need to use a keto-friendly flour alternative.

There are a few different options you can use, and we’ll go through two of the best below:

Option 1: Almond Flour Pizza Crust (3)

Almond flour is a popular choice for keto pizza crust because it’s low in carbs and has a similar texture to wheat flour. If you’ve heard the term “fathead dough” before, it’s referring to the dough made with almond flour, or any other low-carb flour.

To make an almond flour pizza crust, you’ll need:

  • 3/4 cup superfine almond flour
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese finely shredded
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a large saucepan over low heat, mix together the almond flour, mozzarella cheese, cream cheese, and salt until well combined. The cheese should be melted and the mixture should be dough-like in consistency.
  3. Press the dough onto a sheet of parchment paper and cover it with another piece of parchment paper. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out into a 12-inch circle (or whatever size you want your pizza to be).
  4. Uncover the dough, make holes in it with a fork, and transfer the parchment paper onto a baking sheet. Bake the crust for 6-8 minutes, or until golden brown.
  5. Allow to cool slightly before adding your desired toppings.

Option 2: Cauliflower Pizza Crust (1)

Cauliflower is another low-carb vegetable that can be used to make a keto pizza crust. Cauliflower crusts tend to be a bit more delicate than crusts made with almond flour, but they’re still delicious. They’re also vegan, high-fiber, and gluten-free.

To make a cauliflower pizza crust, you’ll need:

  • ¾ lb Cauliflower florets (from ~1 large head of cauliflower)
  • ¾ cups Grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 ½ large Eggs
  • ¼ tbsp Italian seasoning (optional)
  • ¼ tsp Garlic powder (optional)
  • Oil for frying

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Grate the cauliflower florets on the largest setting of a box grater, or pulse in short bursts in a food processor until it resembles rice.
  3. Stir fry the “rice” in a tablespoon or two of oil for 5 minutes until it begins to soften.
  4. In a large bowl, mix eggs, cheese, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder. Add the cooked cauliflower and mix until everything is evenly distributed.
  5. On a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, press the mixture into a 12-inch circle (or whatever size you want your pizza to be).
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.

How To Make Keto Pizza Sauce (2)

With the crust taken care of, it’s time to move on to the sauce. Store-bought pizza sauce is often full of sugar and other additives, so it’s not the best choice if you’re keto

Fortunately though, it’s easy to make your own keto pizza sauce at home. Below is a simple recipe for a delicious pizza sauce that only takes minutes to make:


  • 1/2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 5 oz Tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1/2 tsp Dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp Dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp Dried marjoram
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp Onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp Fennel seed (crushed, chopped)
  • 1/4 tsp Sea salt
  • 1 pinch Black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Balsamic vinegar 


  1. Mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside. 
  2. Now it’s time for the fun part – toppings! When it comes to keto pizza toppings, the sky’s the limit. You can top your pizza with anything you like, as long as it fits within your daily carb allotment.
