Ingredients

Crust
  • 4 4 eggeggs
  • 6 oz. 175 g (375 ml) shredded cheese, preferably mozzarella or provolone
Topping
  • 3 tbsp 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 5 oz. 150 g (325 ml) 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 paste 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.

Keto pizza

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 your 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.

    That shouldn't happen if you use parchment paper. I make this ALOT and never had that issue!

    So does anyone know the calorie count on this?

    I followed your variations and mine also turned out great. I did a 2nd pie in a cast iron skillet sprayed down with oil.....also came out well

    It sounds to me like you are lactose intolerant. This could mean that you are also sensitive to eggs. Try cutting out all eggs and dairy for just a week. Then, add back eggs. If you do fine with eggs during the second week, add back one serving of dairy a day during the third week to see if you tolerate it. If nausea, cramping, vomiting or diarrhea come back at any point, just know that you need to eliminate or severely limit these foods. Lactaid can help for special occasions but I can't recommend it daily. Using it regularly made me even more sensitive to even the smallest amount of dairy - which is really annoying because dairy shows up in the least expected places when eating out.

    I made this and it turned out wonderfully! I did make a couple variations, though. I used a basil pesto sauce as opposed to tomato sauce, and topped it with chicken, spinach, banana peppers and a mozzarella-cheddar-Monterrey jack cheese mixture. I also seasoned the crust mixture with Pink Himalayan salt, onion powder, and garlic powder before baking it. This pizza was packed with flavor! I’ll definitely be making it again!

    What is an actual serving size? The recipe states “2 servings” - but in order to figure out what 2 servings are, you really need to know how many servings this pizza actually makes??

    The entire pizza recipe makes 2 servings. Cut the final product in half and each is one serving.

    How is 1 pizza only 8g of net carbs? If you do the math the cheese alone is 22g of carbs. The rest of the ingredients bring both servings to 33.5g of carbs so 16.75g of carbs per serving. Am I doing something wrong or was the math incorrect when publishing the nutrition facts?

    6oz mozzarella is 4g carbs. It's important to check brands as some of the pre-shredded brands have added starches and cellulose to prevent clumping which can definitely affect carb count. Here is a link to the USDA database for whole milk mozzarella.

    I would actually call this a "Pizza Fritatta". It is good, but if you are expecting a PIZZA - in the truest sense - this may not be exactly what you had in mind. It's really just a matter of phraseology.
    As a "Pizza Fritatta," it's good stuff. :-)

    I made this (thin crust) pizza today and it came out wonderful. I am type 2 diabetic and my husband is a type 1 who also has celiac disease. So this pizza is a win-win for both of us who have been low carbing for years now.

    Do I need to be concerned with having anemia? I had 2 transfusions before Christmas. I think my body has a problem making hemoglobin.
    I feel a lot of energy right now and clarity too. I am hoping Keto and fasting might help me avoid any future need for transfusions.
    Any one have this problem or know anything about it?

    With anemia, or any other medical condition, please consult with your doctor before starting a fasting regimen.

    I just finished eating. Very tasty. I replaced the meat with some ham I had and added some mushrooms. The crust was still a bit "eggy" Maybe next time I will spread it more thinly and it will be a bit more crispy. As far as size goes. Imagine spreading 4 whipped eggs on a cooking sheet - maybe a "medium" pizza

    If I am making this for dinner and lunch follow the recipe and cut it in half and eat one half for dinner one for lunch or divide the crust in two pizzas. What happens if I’m still hungry after eating the half portion because it doesn’t seem to be a big pizza to split in two. I read in the basics that you eat until your satisfied in this case what else could I eat and still be under the 20grams of carbs for the day? Thanks I am new to this!

    You can prepare the pizza either way, whichever is easier for you! As for what else you can eat, it will depend on what else you had that day. This is 8g carbs per serving. Cheese, eggs and meat are all very low carb and can add fats like butter or cream cheese.

    Delicious! But 1 serving is huge. Next time my husband and I will share 1 serving.
