I love my Pizza and who doesn’t, but after getting on the Ketosis Diet, finding the right pizza crust has been a constant quest. On earlier episodes of Keto Pizza I made the cauliflower crust pizza on my first keto recipe episode, I soon followed that up a meat crust which was delicious. Finally after those two experiments I’ve gone ahead and made the fathead pizza, and trust me folks it’s the winner by a mile. One tip though, eat it HOT. Hope you guys enjoy this recipe because I think I’ve found the ultimate Keto Pizza Crust – It’s the fathead crust.
The Ultimate Keto Pizza
So the fathead crust clocks in at 14 carbs per pizza which is 8 net carbs and trust me if your appetite is anything like mine you’ll struggle to eat more than half a pizza in one sitting. From all the crusts I’ve tried this would be the one that comes closest to a real pizza, given that it’s main component is almond flour and cheese both being able to give it some structure and bite.
Tips while making the Fathead Crust
A Couple of things to keep in mind when making this are, always let the cheese cool a bit before you add the egg into it lest you end up with a scrambled egg in the process, always eat this straight out of the oven, it keeps well but it’s definitely best eaten immediately, if you are a ‘pure-vegetarian’ then you can make this without the egg and finally the thinner you can roll it out the ‘crisper’ you can get it. It’s also a good idea to use parchment paper on both sides if you use a rolling pin otherwise you can always just wet your hands and press out the dough to avoid it sticking to your fingers.
Fathead Pizza Toppings
When it comes to toppings the world is your oyster, you can use the standard keto marinara sauce or you can go even lower carb and use my keto basil pesto . I personally love toppings like pepperoni, ham, mushrooms and red onions. Those would fall into my favourite but you can pretty much create your own perfect pizza by following the steps in the video.
Anyway, Bon Appetite.
Cheers & Keep Cooking!
