Low-Carb or Keto Pizza Recipe

Low-Carb or Keto Pizza Recipe

This is one of the first lchf diet (low-carb-high-fat) recipes I tried, based on the instructions on dietdoctor.com. After tasting this low-carb pizza, my husband decided to go on this diet for a while, not because he needed it, but more because of other benefits. This is for you to see that a person who was a complete stranger to the notion of diet could appreciate this recipe. He told me life wasn't so bad for me, after all, with such a menu! 

There is plenty of possibilities and low-carb pizza recipes, but I am very fond of this particular one because it is also the easiest. We always keep eggs and cheese in the fridge, there is no need for fancy flour types or other specific ingredients. I quickly top the egg and cheese crust with whatever else I have in my kitchen and I satisfy my pizza craving.

Of course I will try other keto pizza recipes in the future, but I think this one should be considered the basis - simple, quick and super tasty. From the quantities in this recipe you will get 1 medium pizza, which is enough for 2 people or 2 servings, as it's very filling. One won't be able to eat more than 4 slices for a meal and this is more than enough.

Ingredients

Yellow cheese
300 g
Egg
4 pieces
Tomatoes sauce
3 tbsp
pick sugar-free tomato sauce or dissolve 1 tbsp (sugar-free!) tomato paste in a bit of water
Smoked ham
100 g
or any kind of salami you like, smoked bacon - anything you prefer and is clean label
Cherry tomatoes
5 pieces
mine were frozen from last summer, but you can also use fresh
Pitted olives
30 g
and any other toppings you like - mushrooms, peppers, onions, tuna etc.
Herbes de Provence
0.5 tsp
or a bit of dried oregano, basil etc.

Step by step

1

Line a pizza pan or a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2

Shred 150g cheese using the medium holes of the grater, transfer to a plate or a deeper bowl.

3

Crack the 4 eggs over the cheese.

4

Give it a good stir with the fork to combine.

There is no need for salt here, cheese has enough.

5

Tip the egg and cheese batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spread evenly using a fork/spoon.

Bake in the preheated oven at 200 degrees C for about 15 minutes, until brown.

6

While the crust is baking, dissolve in a small bowl 1 tbsp tomato paste in a bit of water to obtain a sauce.

7

This is what it looks like when it's ready, you can bake it a little longer in the oven - which will make it firmer and crunchy and able to hold the toppings together.

Let cool for 5 minutes.

8

Then spread tomato sauce on the crust.

9

Sprinkle any pizza spices you like - basil, oregano, marjoram or a bit of ground black pepper.

10

Top with 150g grated cheese and small slices of ham, salami etc. 

11

You can add any other veggies you like (which are, of course, on the keto veggies list, if you are on this diet), peppers, onions, mushrooms, olives etc.

I had olives and frozen cherry tomatoes from last summer.

Place the pizza back in the oven and bake for 10 more minutes.

12

Remove from the oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes, then slice and serve with great appetite. Kids like it as well, they don't seem to taste the difference and I don't tell them it's a different kind of pizza :))

It's a simple yet ingenious solution to my cravings during the keto diet.

Enjoy!
