Keto-Friendly Low Carb Pizza

Keto-Friendly Low Carb Pizza

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 Crust

The pizza crust is made up of:

  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Almond flour
  • Psyllium husk powder
  • Cream cheese
  • Egg
  • Italian seasoning
  • Salt
  • Pepper

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.

    1. Ordering pizza is definitely nice. I love doing that when you can’t be bothered to cook anything. Sadly I can’t do that anymore though because none of the pizzas you can order in are low carb. 🙁

    1. I thought about making that meatza soooo many times, but I never did because the idea of not having a “real” crust put me off it. But I’m so glad to hear that it’s good!

  1. Mmmmmmmmm pizza. One of my favorite snacks. That crust does look tasty. But sadly a lot of these ingredients are very hard to find for me. :/ It seems like I will have to continue to cook my regular white flour crust. 🙂
    Thanks for an interesting recipe. It was a fun info if nothing else. Also your toppings seem so weird to me. Are those usual toppings in USA? In Serbia we usually use tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, ham and origano.

    1. In the US and the UK it’s common to find ANY kind of meat and ANY kind of vegetable on pizza.

      Pepperoni is one of the signature toppings in both the US and the UK.
      Peppers aren’t quite as “signature” as pepperoni, but they’re still extremely common.
      Salami is probably the least common, but we added it kind of on a whim. It’s not all that different from pepperoni in terms of taste.

      1. Yes of course you can put anything you want on pizza. That’s the beauty of it. 🙂

        It’s so interesting how food differs from country to country! I think we make pizza more similar to Italian recipe. The toppings I mentioned are for a version called capricciosa which is most popular. Every bakery has it and sells it per slice.
        Here we very rarely use pepperoni for pizza. Ham is the most popular meat used. Bacon sometimes as an extra. Salami rarely, only on some cheaper versions…

  2. I was going to send a recipe to you the other day for low-carb (almost no-carb) pizza. Danny and I made it the other night and it was… amazing. Our crust was a lot simpler. Cream cheese, egg and seasonings. I was worried if it would hold up to the long-term test – i.e. cold pizza for breakfast or heated up – but it went surprisingly well! Glad you found one as well. : )

  3. There is a pizza recipe floating around that is made from Cauliflower…I will see if I can locate that recipe for you…
