Keto LOW-CARB Pizza
Now do I have your attention? It’s hard to find someone that doesn’t love a good pizza. It’s a guilty pleasure of many, the crux of low carb dieters, and guaranteed to kick you of ketosis. That is until now, behold keto pizza – you’re welcome:
- 1 cup grated mozzarella
- ½ cup grated cheddar cheese
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp oregano and/or Italian seasoning
- 2 tbsp of cream cheese
- 1½ cup almond flour
- 1 tbsp flax meal
- 1 egg
- your choice of toppings
Preheat your oven to about 400-425 F. In a microwave friendly bowl, take your grated mozzarella and cheddar cheese and add in the garlic powder and seasoning. Place it in the microwave on med-hi for 30-60 seconds until nicely melted, keep a close eye on it so it doesn’t turn into a bubbly mess.
Dump in the cream cheese, almond flour, flax meal. While you’re at it, crack in that egg.
Now the fun part. Roll up those sleeves and get in there, mix the concoction with your hands until it forms a nice uniform dough ball suitable for rolling. If it’s too wet and tacky, add a little bit more almond flour until you’re happy with it.
Bust out two sheets of parchment paper and sandwich your dough inbetween. Take a rolling pin and roll it out evenly- I usually go to about ¼” in thickness.
Remove the top piece of parchment and slide the rolled out dough on to a cookie sheet or pizza pan. Toss it in the oven under watchful eye – once the edges start to brown, remove from oven and top to your liking. I usually go with 1-2 tbsp of relatively low carb marinara, and pepperorni, mushroom and red pepper. Sprinkle some more grated mozzarella on top being mindful that that the crust is already heavy in the cheese department. Pop this glorious slap of za back into the oven to melt the cheese to your liking and crisp the edges further. And there you have it, your new favourite keto recipe!
