Keto white pizza

Keto white pizza

Pizza without tomato sauce? You bet! You won't miss the red carpet with this creamy white version. We ditched the tomatoes and gluten, doubled up on cheese, and added sour cream and a dash of rosemary. Make it white tonight.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Whisk together eggs, sour cream, and mayonnaise. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Let the dough sit for 5 minutes to allow it to thicken.
  3. If you want to make one pizza per serving, divide the dough into as many pieces as servings. Or make a large one and slice it right before serving.
  4. Place the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Add another lightly oiled paper on top (oily side down) and use a rolling pin to flatten the dough evenly. The crust shouldn't be thicker than 0.25" (5 mm).
  5. Remove the top parchment paper and repeat the same procedure if you make more than one pizza.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes. The crust should be lightly golden; don't overdo it. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. Flip the crust upside down so that you are spreading the topping on the crispier side.
  7. Spread sour cream on top. Add shredded cheese. Sprinkle with rosemary and pepper.
  8. Place the pizza back in the oven and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes. Watch out: You don't want the edges to overcook or burn.
  9. Remove the pizza from the oven, grate, or slice parmesan on top. Serve immediately.

Tip!

Almond flour-based dough satiates way more than others. You can also make smaller pizza portions that are great for snacks. Feel free to reheat the pizza the day after. It makes a great kid-friendly lunch and takes their lunchboxes to the next level. You can also make an extra crust to keep in the fridge for two to three days. Or freeze the crust for a future fast meal where all you need to do is defrost and add the topping.

    The 'original' of this is called flammenkueche and it comes from Alsace. They use fromage blanc and top it with onions and lardons. Yum!

    What can I use to substitute for the ground psyllium husk ?

    There is not a good substitute for the psyllium. It gives a pliability to the finished product that other ingredients won't. If you do not have psyllium, you may wish to try another crust and use the "white" toppings from this recipe on that crust.

    Lj, does the crust turn out crispy?
  11. Caroline
    My crust didn't turn out very crispy but it was still pretty good. I used shredded mozzarella and topped with crushed red pepper and jalapenos.

    This is not my favourite pizza recipe on this site. The crust was too spongy and weird for me and I used sour cream for the "sauce" base and that just didn't work for me. But I thank you for always being inventive and giving us new things to try. I did think it was better the next day reheated because the crust dried out just a bit.

    I was very skeptical about this recipe, especially when the crusts came out of the oven because they were quite spongy in texture as the previous commentator has noted. However, the pizza did taste really very nice, especially with the addition of some slices of chicken and green onion. As a result of having made this pizza, I was able to resist the delicious-smelling thin crust gourmet pizza that my family was enjoying, which I consider a big victory.

    just made this pizza using créme fraîche. baked it on the pizza stone, and it turned out crispy and BETTER than a regular pizza. HOORAY! a new friday favourite at ours! will definitely have to try with chicken and perhaps caramelised onions next time!

    The crust was too spongy and resembles to bread
    I am looking for a crispier recipe
    Topping like a flammenkueche is always OK

    There are a couple of important elements in this one, make sure it is thin and flip the crust before topping. Another option you may enjoy is the Kedough Pizza. https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/sullivans-kedough-pizza

    Another great recipe from Diet Doctor! For my crust, I used 1/2 mayo & 1/2 sour cream. I read the reviews so I made sure I did spread my crust thin on parchment paper. Then I prebaked my crust and flipped it over and lightly baked it again on the other side before putting on any toppings. I cooked mine on a pizza stone, as one reviewer suggested. Then I topped it with the sour cream mixture. I did add a little garlic powder, dried parsley, salt & pepper to my creamy mixture. Finally, I sprinkled mozzarella & parmesan cheese on top and topped it off with sliced green onions. My crust was not soggy at all. I wasn't sure I'd enjoy the sour cream base, but this pizza was absolutely delicious! Thank you Diet Doctor for all the delicious recipes on your site!

    If you don't have a pizza stone, just use a preheated cast iron skillet. Can even flip it over and use the bottom as a pizza stone.....just do your crust on parchment paper and slide the whole thing onto the overturned skillet bottom.
