Ingredients

Crust
  • 4 4 eggeggs
  • 6 oz. 175 g (375 ml) shredded cheese, preferably mozzarella or provolone
Topping
  • 3 tbsp 3 tbsp unsweetened tomato sauce
  • 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 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.

    This recipe makes one pizza and therefore is 2 servings? Correct?

    Step 3 indicates you can make 2 small pizzas or 1 large one. Regardless, yes, this recipe makes two servings.

    Okay I am seriously confused. It states to mix the eggs and shredded mozzarella cheese together and then spread the batter on baking sheet. Is it supposed to liquid-y still? I've been using another recipe where it has me melt shredded mozzarella cheese and cream cheese together to form the "dough". I want to give this recipe a try but the first 2 steps are confusing since it's still liquid.

    Yes, this should still be more liquid. There is no need to melt the cheese; this is a totally different recipe.

    I did not like this at all. Too greasy, cheesy, slimy. Will try it with a cauliflower crust next time.

    Well I actually messed up by using shredded parmesan cheese by accident in the crust but I had already dumped it in the egg mixture so I went with it! It was delicious!!! Besides the oregano I added basil as well! My very picky husband loved it!!!!!

    Eggs don’t have lactose. Cow’s milk does.

    Oh my gosh, this was so good! I've liked everything I've tried this far (since things more than others...) but THIS was by far the best! I did as others suggested and added a but of garlic and oregano and a little parmesan to the crust. Itctastws just like a regular pizza. The crust is a bit more soggy than my usual thin crust pizza is, but I noticed absolutely no eggy taste... and I hate eggs, so it's a taste that is very noticeable to me. With some black olives sliced on top I never even got a hint of egg-taste. Very delicious. I'd give this one more than five stars if it'd let me...👍

    Wow what an amazing recipe! Thank you for sharing these!

    I really like this recipe. It was pretty soupy so I added small amounts of coconut flour and grated parmesan cheese (as one reader did accidentally) until it came to a consistency that wouldn't run off of the baking sheet. Maybe if I used regular eggs instead of extra large this might help with the consistency. Regardless, I thought it was delicious!

    How can I make the crust without using cheese? Should I just use eggs?
  13. CINDY
    I meant, just using eggs am I going to be able to make a good crust?

    Eggs alone are not likely to make a good pizza crust, but we have not tested it without the cheese.

    I followed the video and the pizzas turned out perfectly. We honestly didn't even miss the pizza dough!
  16. Aimee
    Not sure how others have got this to taste like pizza, but this was not for me! Mine came out like a big omelette (maybe I spread it a bit too thick?). But even the thinner bits at the crust tasted very eggy, just like a crispy omelette. Provolone cheese was also incredibly strong, my husband and I couldn't finish the whole thing :(
  17. Kim
    Does one serving really have 1043 calories??!! Seems like a lot.
  18. The cheese topping?
    In your list of ingredients you did not mention the cheese topping after the crust is baked is there an amount or type that you recommend?
    Are used Italian four cheese blend sparingly but I don’t know how that affects the nutrients.

    The topping section calls for 5oz shredded cheese. We leave the specific type purposefully vague so people can choose their favorite shredded cheese that goes with the toppings they choose.

    I expected this to taste like a cheese omelette so I was very surprised how pizza like it was. Granted I've been doing Keto awhile and I haven't had pizza in a long while. Crust wasn't crispy but very tasty. My kids and husband loved it. I'll definitely make it again.

    This is by far the best Keto Pizza that I have made so far! My crust came out nice and crispy, and it did not taste eggy like I thought it would. Thank you for this recipe, I have been craving a good pizza ever since I started on Keto, and thanks to you I have now found one.

    Question: These recipes give the total carb number. Does that number include the “serve with” salad and oil - or whatever the “pair with” item is....or is the carb number just the main dish (per serving)?

    This was even more delicious the next day. I used a little bit more mozzarella in the crust so it would be the right consistency in the pan. I also used mushrooms and olives. It was delicious and easy to make. The only suggestion I have is to make sure that you put sauce and cheese all the way to the end of the crust. It makes it taste delicious.

    In this case, yes, the salad is included as it's listed in the ingredients.

    Hello, I want to give this recipe a try but instead of pepperoni I would like to use bacon. In this case, I will exchange the ingredients amount 1:1 and also how can I calculate the final nutrition facts with this change?
    One more question. In the nutrition facts of the recipe do you count the "for serving" part too already?

    You would need to look each ingredient up in an app or the USDA database to calculate the new nutrition information. Yes, the nutrition information includes the "for serving" ingredients as well.

    Wow! My family and I were so pleasantly surprised/impressed at how good this pizza was! Now I don't have to cheat w a slice of Costco pizza lol (new to keto) I'm looking forward to making it for my grandkids. Thank you so much for the yummy recipes.

    Tomato sauce is closer to ketchup but without the added spices or sweeteners. It's thinner than a tomato paste.

    Just made it! Delicious! Got full with half of serving. Will cook it again , thank you for such an easy recipe.
  39. Sans
    Just tried this recipe, it tastes good but I did ran into an issue with the crust.
    It was rather thin and soft, any idea what I could have done wrong or how I could improve this?
    I don't think I made the pizza too big, and the only deviation I can think off in the ingredients is that I had a bit more mozarella than needed.

    Use the recommended amount of cheese and perhaps try baking a few minutes longer.

    OMG! Wow , i cant believe how great this pizza came out! My wife and i absolutely loved it! I thought since i started the keto diet , pizza was gone for a very long time, but our friend Sandy sent this recipe to me and i was very skeptical if it would taste good. What a surprise! Great job to all who came up with this recipe.

    This is amazing. I added some oregano, crushed red pepper seeds, and garlic powder to my crust and topped it with pepperoni and jalapeños and it may be my new favorite pizza. My husband even liked it. Not sure I’ll ever go back to regular pizza crust ever again !
  44. Brenda
    When I read the comments on too greasy I thought that was funny since I literally JUST made it and said to my husband I like this pizza because it’s NOT GREASY!! That fat pizza is Very greasy compared to this! It was awesome.,
  45. Nino Sommer
    You have to adjust the amount according to servings. With two eggs it makes one serving. You can divide the crust into two or bake as one. I made 1 serving from 2 eggs and 75 gr. cheese and counted it as 5gr carbs.

    Delicious pizza though I wasn't able to finish 1 serving since it is too fatty for me. I hope i won't feel hunger till my dinner.

    In general, this shouldn't be sticking to the paper. You may want to double check you're using parchment paper and not waxed paper, which is a common mistake. If you're using parchment paper, you can try "greasing" it with some melted butter.

  53. Amy Giddins
    I loved this! I was very dubious about the base tasting Eggy but it didn't. I added olive oil to the Tomato base and this made it super crispy and nice then poured more oil on top. Also added broccoli florets with blue cheese and basil seasoning and put the spinach on the pizza. - Can't wait to have this one again, thank you!
  54. Rob D
    Absolutely amazing. This will now be my "Friday night cheat meal!".

    Thank you.

    We’ve just had this 2 nights in a row! So so delicious 🤤 made it exactly how the recipe said, had no troubles at all, really not sure how so many people have struggled with this 🤷‍♀️ It tasted just like normal pizza and even my husband ate 2 pieces before I told him it wasn’t dough base, he said he couldn’t tell the difference and he is very picky. Thanks so much for the great recipe, you have so helped me with my pizza cravings! 10/10!
