How to make low-carb and keto pizza crustsMaking low-carb and keto pizzas doesn’t have to be a complicated hours-long process — nor does it require a lot of exotic ingredients.
We’ve categorized our favorite pizzas by the type of crust used.
Keto or carbless crusts: Many are made with low-carb, high-protein favorites such as meats, whey protein isolate, cheese, or eggs. Not only are these keto-friendly, but they are sometimes referred to as “zero-carb pizza crusts.”
Veggie crusts: Some crusts are built around low-carb veggies, such as eggplant, zucchini, or cauliflower. All great ways to sneak some veggies into your kids’ meal!
Almond flour crusts: Other popular low-carb or keto pizza ingredients include alternative flours such as almond flour, coconut flour, or psyllium. These may be slightly fussier to make but are more likely to resemble traditional high-carb pizza crusts.
Elevate your pizza experience by combining these delicious low-carb ingredients for a perfect pizza topping.
- Meat: Pepperoni, ham, sausage, bacon, shredded chicken, ground beef, and anchovies.
- Sauce: Tomato paste, sour cream or crème fraîche, Sun-dried tomato pesto, Green pesto, and Salsa sauce.
