One of the hardest things to give up when you go grain/gluten-free is pizza! I have always enjoyed eating pizza at least once a week, so I knew that I was going to need to create a delicious substitute. I tried those cauliflower crusts, but they were nasty!! Too greasy, too salty and my son can’t eat dairy so I needed a more bread-like Keto Pizza Crust without cheese being the main ingredient….

This is obviously my pepperoni and cheese covered Keto Pizza Crust, that right there would just about kill my son if he tried to eat it! He is perfectly content to cover his pizza with sauce, mushrooms, olives, bell peppers and all forms of meat. I am not that adventurous, I don’t like contaminants on my pizza. 😉

This Keto Pizza Crust turned out exactly how I wanted it to! Thick enough to create a solid base for toppings, but without any strong flavors that mask the flavor of the toppings. It is a bit grainy, it is made with almond flour after all, but I am totally okay with that. In fact, this pizza got two thumbs up from my mom when I asked her to test it out for me. 🙂

Recipe Notes & Tips

  • I topped my pizza crust with 0.5-cup of sugar-free pizza sauce, 1 cup of shredded mozzarella and 7 pepperoni slices.
  • Bake for 10 minutes to melt the cheese, then switch to broil for a couple of minutes to brown the top.
  • Add any of your favorite toppings, but realize that they will not “cook” in 10 minutes. Keep them small or sauté before adding to your pizzas.
  • Allow pizza to cool after baking for 10 to 15 minutes to give the crust time to set. This will allow you to pick up your slice of pizza in your hand. You will need a fork to eat it straight out of the oven.
