Ingredients

Crust
  • 4 4 eggeggs
  • 6 oz. 175 g shredded cheese, preferably mozzarella or provolone
Topping
  • 3 tbsp 3 tbsp unsweetened tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 5 oz. 150 g shredded cheese
  • 1½ oz. 40 g pepperoni
  • olives (optional)
For serving
  • 2 oz. 50 g leafy greens
  • 4 tbsp 4 tbsp olive oil
  • sea salt and ground black pepper

Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Start by making the crust. Crack eggs into a medium-sized bowl and add shredded cheese. Give it a good stir to combine.
  3. Use a spatula to spread the cheese and egg batter on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You can form two round circles or just make one large rectangular pizza. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes until the pizza crust turns golden. Remove and let cool for a minute or two.
  4. Increase the oven temperature to 450°F (225°C).
  5. Spread tomato sauce on the crust and sprinkle oregano on top. Top with cheese and place the pepperoni and olives on top.
  6. Bake for another 5-10 minutes or until the pizza has turned a golden brown color.
  7. Serve with a fresh salad on the side.

Can I use other ingredients for the crust?

For this recipe, both eggs and cheese are necessary. Feel free to use other types of cheese, like goat cheese if you try to avoid cow's milk. You can also mix different kinds of cheese to find the flavor combination that works best for you.

There are many ways of making gluten-free, low-carb and keto pizza crusts. You can make it with cauliflower, eggplant, ground meat or make it with almond flour like in the very popular Fathead pizza.

Can I use other toppings?

Go ahead and try sun-dried tomato pesto or a jar of spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce instead of tomato paste, but make sure there is no added sugar. Low-carb and keto topping options are endless: bacon (have you tried our keto breakfast pizza?), salami, mushrooms, blue cheese, shredded chicken, sautéed onions, feta cheese… you know what you like!

Can I store this dish?

This pizza keeps for at least 2-3 days in the fridge and reheats great in the microwave. When you're in the process of baking it, make an extra crust or two and put in the freezer. Put parchment paper in between the crusts if you're making more than one. Whenever you're in the mood for pizza, just grab a crust, top it with whatever is in your fridge and bake it off. Voila! Dinner in no time!

You can also use the crust as a wrap and fill it with anything you like, for example deli roastbeef or tuna and eggs.

    Made this pizza for the first time and followed it to the T. Very tasty, and egg base was not overpowering at all. Would definitely make again!

    Awesome!! Thank you for sharing your feedback!

    Hi what tomato paste are people using? I am confused how it can only be 5g if tomato paste is 15g

    This recipe calls for tomato sauce, not tomato paste. Tomato sauce is lower carb as it is less concentrated. In the UK, you can use passata if that helps.

    I've tried many keto pizza crusts, and this is still my favorite. It is eggier than a traditional crust, but it still works really well and isn't tough and dense like so many other crusts I've tried. I prefer to mix it in the blender for a smoother spread and airier lift. It does freeze quite well.

    Thanks for the tip about the blender. So glad you enjoy this recipe!

    Taste was good but crust was floppy. I could not pick up a "slice" and eat it had to do a fork and knife. Easy to put together but I won't make it again. Will look for a different recipe with almond flour in the crust.

    This pizza was in my first week eating keto and one thing I do crave from time to time is pizza. It took me years to find the order out pizza and I finally found it. So when this came up in the meal plan I was dubious. Well, I became a very happy camper! The craving stems to the pepperoni and oh, guess what, pepperoni is one of the ingredients! I love this pizza, and I have tried a variety of the crusts on the website but this is my go to. I have started to cook my pizza’s in small no stick Oven safe frying pans (heritage brand) and this way, no paper, no mess and the cheese crisps up on the edges rather than falling on the paper. I would give this a 4 star because the crust is just a bit soft. I can still eat it with my hands tho.

    This is a regular Friday night treat - add whatever toppings you like. Only hint is don't use a very strong cheese in the base - it can overpower the flavor of the toppings... go for milder cheese in base and then delicious mozzarella on top :D

    Absolutely LOVE this. Quick and easy. I mix up the toppings. I was worried about an eggy taste but.. not at all!

    This is my favorite recipe for keto pizza, although I did find the crust a little too eggy the the first time I made, so I doubled the amount of cheese for the crust and I love it!
