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.

    Is there a way to keep it from sticking? It doesn't separate from the paper at all.

    Is there a way to keep it from sticking? It doesn't separate from the paper at all.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    Wow...I’m speechless! I DID NOT expect this to taste just like a regular pizza! I could not tell the difference at all!! It was absolutely delicious. I made a six serving pizza on a cookie sheet making it easy to measure the servings. I had enough for a few servings and I froze the remaining slices. Will be making this time and time again! Please Diet Doctor...never ever go away!

    I made a breakfast pizza out of this today with country sausage. It tasted good but a whole serving is a lot of food with close to 16 carbs and like 1300+ calories. It has more protein than I need especially in one sitting. However, I prefer this crust to other keto crusts. I like that it uses basic ingredients but it is definitely a special occasion treat not a regular part of the rotation.

    This is a delicious keto pizza and much quicker than other recipes. We made ours in a non stick frypan on the stovetop to make sure it was crispy - cooked it for a few minutes and then flipped it over to get it crispy both sides. Then topped it and put it under the grill to finish it. Quick and tasty! A keeper.

    That's a lot of eggs. I like the fat head recipe. One egg almond flour more cheese

    Tasty but the base was quite ‘eggy’ tasting.
    I think I’ll make the cauliflower base next time.

    I'm sorry I don't mean to be rude but this was so gross. Crust is like an omelet and tastes super eggy but like crusty almost burnt eggs. Won't be making this again.

    The crust is eggy and it stuck to my parchment paper. I had to peel it off. I didn't think the flavor was bad but I didn't think it tasted like a real pizza either.

    Hi. Can i use chicken thighs instead of pepperoni? What will be the weight for one serving and in how much butter i need to cook it? Thanks
  15. jroche250
    Very nice, will try it again
  16. Yolanda Gamboa
    You may have mixed it too much making it "eggy" ... if you want to try again, try a light and brief stir.
  17. Kathy
    We weren't impressed. It didn't taste eggy, per se, but the crust was limp. I baked the crust for 20 minutes, thinking it might crisp up. Never did.
  18. Renos Greece
    Good and easy recipe.
    It tastes good.
