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.
Deliciously Easy Keto Pizza
So, if you’re looking for an easy keto pizza recipe you’ve come to the right place!
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.
The BEST Almond Flour To Use For Your Keto Pizza
Almond flour is by far my favorite low carb keto friendly flour substitute. And it’s actually what the base of today’s Keto Pizza Recipe is made out of.
You can use it in so many different recipes, and have amazing results. It mimics regular flour unbelievably well. So much so, that if you didn’t tell someone the base of this keto pizza recipe was made with almond flour, they probably wouldn’t know!
As far as the brand of almond flour I like to use, I like the Kirkland’s Blanched Almond Flour.
The reason I like Kirkland’s is because it’s MUCH cheaper than other brands, and it has the lowest amount of net carbs per serving. Every 28 grams of that almond flour has just 2 net carbs!
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.

- Prep Time: 3 Minutes
- Cook Time: 7 Minutes
- Total Time: 10 minutes
- Yield: 8 Slices 1x
- Category: Dinner
1 1/2 Cups (168g) Kirkland’s Blanched Almond Flour
2 Tbsps (15g) Coconut Flour
2/3 Scoop (20g) Unflavored Whey Protein Powder
1/2 Cup (125g) No Sugar Added Pizza Sauce
1/2 Tsp Xanthan Gum
1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
Pinch of Salt
Tiny Pinch of Garlic Powder
Tiny Pinch of Onion Powder
1 Tbsp (14g) Melted Coconut Oil
Preheat your oven to 425 Degrees.
Add all of the dry ingredients to a large bowl – For BEST results measure them out on a food scale to the gram where listed.
*NOTE: There will be instructions in the “Notes” below on how to replace the protein powder if you don’t want to use it.
Whisk until combined.
Once Combined, melt the coconut oil and add it to the bowl, along with the eggs.
Now use a spatula to mix and combine the ingredients until a ball of dough forms.
Once a ball of dough forms, use your hands to work/dissolve the yolks into the ball, and make it smooth.
When the ball of dough becomes smooth, and the yolks have dissolved, take out a large sheet of parchment paper and add it to your work-surface area.
Now, add the ball of dough to the paper, and cover the dough with another large sheet of parchment paper.
At this point you’ll want to roll out the dough to about 14 inches in diameter.
Once the dough is 14 inches, roll up the edges of the dough to form an outer crust.
The crust should now be about 12 inches in diameter.
When the outer crust looks good, you’ll want to add it (along with the parchment paper underneath) to a pizza tray and bake it for 3-5 minutes.
3 Minutes if you’re using the protein powder.
5 Minutes if you’re NOT using the protein powder.
When it’s done in the oven you’ll want to add the sauce, cheese, and toppings of your choice.
You’ll also want to switch the oven over to a “broil”.
Once you’ve added all of your toppings the keto pizza is ready to go back in the oven.
Broil the keto pizza until the cheese melts.
Once the cheese melts, the pizza is done!
