THE BEST KETO PIZZA
Keto Pizza in 10 Minutes!
I know, that sounds impossible, but it isn’t. It’s actually REALLY easy to make keto pizza this quick, and it’s REALLY delicious too.
In fact, I think today’s Keto Pizza recipe is THE BEST Keto Pizza recipe there is. And it all comes down to the crust. The crust of this pizza has the taste and the consistency of “normal” pizza crust.
I actually think it puts Fathead Pizza to shame.
Ok, that might be a little bit of an exaggeration, but I do think it’s quite a bit better.
Fathead Pizza is by far the most popular way to make keto pizza, but that doesn’t mean it’s the best way. Fathead Pizza Crust takes more time to make, and is much heavier and dough-y
This pizza crust is much lighter, much crispier, and the outside crust is much crunchier!
And I like that.
Usually making keto pizza crust is a long drawn out process. It involves melting cheese, mixing, re-melting cheese, mixing more etc. etc.
But the keto pizza crust we’re making today comes together rather effortlessly. All you have to do is add the ingredients to a bowl, mix, and then presto-change-o a ball of dough forms! It doesn’t get easier than that, does it?!
Now, once you form that ball of dough, you’ll roll it out into a 12″ crust and precook it before adding your toppings. And this crust cooks quick – like less than 5 minutes quick – so you’ll want to keep an eye on it.
You’ll know it’s done when the outer-crust just starts to turn golden brown
Once that happens, you’re ready to add your sauce, cheese, and toppings! Then all you have to do is pop it back in the oven, and broil it until the cheese melts. Which by the way, only takes about 3 minutes.
HOW TO MAKE KETO PIZZA WITH THE LOWEST CARBS
Pizza is usually filled with carbs.
And the main culprit for this is typically the crust and the sauce pizzas are made with.
So, to reduce the carbs as much as possible – and not just make pizza, but keto pizza – we’ll need to use some alternative ingredients. For instance, instead of using wheat/white flour for the pizza crust, we’re using a blend of coconut flour, almond flour, and protein powder.
And instead of using a pizza sauce loaded with sugar, we’re going to use this no-sugar-added tomato sauce by Hunts.
DO NOT SUBSTITUTE FLOURS
Please, DO NOT substitute more coconut flour for the almond flour, or more almond flour for the coconut flour.
Almond flour and coconut flour have different absorption properties, and you should NEVER substitute one for the other in ANY recipe, especially today’s keto pizza recipe.
Coconut flour absorbs liquids at a much higher rate than almond flour does, it’s like a sponge. And adding too much coconut flour is the easiest/fastest way to dry out a recipe.
