I feel forever indebted to the folks over at ruled.me for introducing me to an AMAZING low carb pizza recipe. And actually, it’s not just this recipe, it’s ALL their recipes. I’ve also tried their hot chocolate recipe, which was fantastic.
I’ve always loved pizza. I mean, who doesn’t? It’s delish! When I first started my low carb journey, I saw a lot of pizza recipes, but most of them looked unappetizing. It was the crust. Either they omitted it entirely (which seemed weird to me), or the crust looked SO not normal. It looked more like a seedy cracker than a tasty pizza crust.
But when I saw the recipe over at ruled.me, the crust looked REAL! It looked like legit pizza crust, which was pretty incredible. And yet, each slice of pizza (toppings included) is only about 3-5 grams of carbs. To put that in perspective, most Dominos pizzas have about 15-30 grams of carbs per slice.
The pizza crust is made up of:
- Mozzarella cheese
- Almond flour
- Psyllium husk powder
- Cream cheese
- Italian seasoning
And it tastes incredible! It got brown, a bit crispy, and tasted really good! It didn’t even really taste like a crust “replacement” if you know what I mean. It just tasted like normal pizza.
Add some toppings
For our toppings, we added:
- A bit of tomato sauce (we just used some from a jar, haha)
- About 80 grams of mozzarella cheese
- 30 grams of cheddar cheese
- Five pieces of salami
- 6 pepperonis
- A handful of green peppers
You can pretty much add whatever you want. The original recipe only asked for cheese, tomato sauce, and pepperoni, but my husband and I added a bit more (the salami and peppers).
Cook that epic pizza!
JUST LOOK AT HOW DELICIOUS IT IS!!!
What I love about this pizza is that it just tastes terrific. I don’t feel like I’m “settling”, you know? It’s delicious, but still tastes lighter and healthier than Dominos or Pizza Hut. It didn’t taste like a “substitute”—it’s the real deal!
Want the recipe?
I seriously can’t recommend this pizza enough if you’re eating low carb/keto. Even if you’re not eating low carb, it might still be worth giving it a try. It’s fantastic! Plus, it’s not difficult to make. I’m far from an expert cook and I managed to whip it together pretty well. This was the first pizza I’d EVER made.
