Keto, low carb and gluten free Pesto Pizza

There are lots of different gluten-free and low carb pizza dough recipes. I have tried the most of them. Well, this one beats all of them. Yes, there are keto pizza dough recipes that are much lower in carbs. But, do they taste so good? Not really!

There are low carb pizza recipes that taste a bit closer to the “traditional” pizza from the shops or takeaways. But, they are so complicated to make. Most even use ingredients that you need to buy specifically to make pizza.

The best part of this healthy pizza recipe is that it uses “common” healthy ingredients and it is easy to make.

How to Make this Gluten-Free Pesto Pizza?

Pizza dough – Method 1

In a bowl add all the pizza dough ingredients – almond flour, mozzarella cheese, cream cheese, an egg, salt, and gluten-free baking powder. These are optional for flavour: garlic powder and dried basil. You can omit them or replace them with herbs of your choice.

Mix them well until fully combined.

Divide the dough into 2 parts. Place each part in between 2 parchment/greaseproof paper sheets and roll them out to the thickness you like.

Pizza dough – Method 2

Combine, in a microwave proof bowl, the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Microwave it for 30 seconds or until the mozzarella cheese melts.

Add the rest of the pizza dough ingredients to the microwaved mixture – almond flour, an egg, salt, and gluten-free baking powder. These are optional for flavour: garlic powder and dried basil. You can omit them or replace them with herbs of your choice.

Mix them well until fully combined. Be careful as the dough might be a bit hot. Leave it for few minutes to cool down if needed.

Divide the dough into 2 parts. Place each part in between 2 parchment/greaseproof paper sheets and roll them out to the thickness you like.

Pizza dough cooking

Cook the low carb pizza dough in a pre-heated oven to 180C/350F for 6-7 minutes.

Tip: The keto pizza dough is ready when you see the edges going a bit brown. The pizza base will look undercook and that is fine. If you fully cook the base, you might burn in later when you cook it again with the toppings.

Pizza Sauce

I used homemade pesto sauce for my gluten-free pizza sauce. It gives really nice, fresh taste and smell to the pizza. And the colour is nice to look as well.

Pizza Toppings

You can use any toppings you like. You can add or omit ingredients. It is entirely up to you. The only suggestion I would make you is to use already cooked toppings

These are my choice of toppings and my choice of arranging them. Again, feel free to use your choice and imagination.

My choice of toppings are: pepperoni, wild mushrooms, yellow peppers, baby plum tomatoes and mozzarella cheese.

Final Step – Gluten-Free Pizza Cooking

When you are done decorating your amazingly tasty pizza creation, put it back in the oven.

The final cooking time will depend on your choice of toppings.

If you use the same toppings as suggested in the recipe, cook your pizza for 5-6 minutes or until the mozzarella cheese melts.

      FAQ

      Q: How do I store and serve my keto chocolate eclairs? 

      A: You can store your keto chocolate eclairs in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months. To serve them, you can thaw them in the fridge overnight or at room temperature for an hour. You can also reheat them in the oven or microwave for a few seconds to make them warm and soft. You can enjoy your keto chocolate eclairs as they are or with some keto ice cream or whipped cream on the side. They are perfect for any occasion, from breakfast to dessert.

      Q: What is the difference between heavy cream and heavy whipping cream? 

      A: Heavy cream and heavy whipping cream are both high-fat dairy products that are used to make keto desserts. They have similar nutritional values and can be used interchangeably in most recipes. The main difference is that heavy cream has at least 36% milk fat, while heavy whipping cream has at least 30% milk fat. Heavy cream is slightly thicker and richer than heavy whipping cream, but both will whip well and create a fluffy texture.

      Q: How many net carbs are in one keto chocolate eclair?

      A: Net carbs are the total carbs minus the fiber and sugar alcohols. One keto chocolate eclair has about 2.3 grams of net carbs, depending on the ingredients and the size of the eclair. This is much lower than a regular eclair, which can have up to 28 grams of net carbs. Keto chocolate eclairs are a great low carb dessert for anyone who follows a keto diet or a low carb diet.

      Q: How do I make keto chocolate custard?

      A: Keto chocolate custard is a creamy and rich filling for keto chocolate eclairs. It is made with heavy cream, egg yolks, sweetener, salt, xanthan gum, butter, vanilla extract, and unsweetened chocolate. To make keto chocolate custard, you need to heat the cream and chocolate in a saucepan, whisk the egg yolks with the sweetener and salt in a bowl, temper the eggs with the hot cream, return the mixture to the saucepan and cook until thickened, stir in the butter and vanilla, and refrigerate until set. You can find the detailed instructions and measurements in the recipe card below.

      Q: Can I make keto eclair cake instead of keto eclairs?

      A: Yes, you can make keto eclair cake instead of keto eclairs. Keto eclair cake is a layered dessert that uses keto graham crackers, keto pastry cream, and keto chocolate glaze. It is easier and faster to make than keto eclairs, and it serves a larger crowd. To make keto eclair cake, you need to layer keto graham crackers in a large baking dish, spread half of the keto pastry cream over the crackers, add another layer of crackers, spread the remaining pastry cream, add the final layer of crackers, and pour the keto chocolate glaze over the top. Refrigerate the cake until set and enjoy. You can find the recipe for keto graham crackers and keto eclair cake here.

      Q: Can I make these keto chocolate eclairs dairy-free?

      A: Yes, you can make these keto chocolate eclairs dairy-free. You can substitute the heavy cream with coconut cream, the butter with coconut oil, and the cream cheese with dairy-free cream cheese. You can also use almond milk or coconut milk instead of water in the pastry dough. These substitutions will make your keto chocolate eclairs suitable for anyone who is lactose intolerant or allergic to dairy. They will also add a subtle coconut flavor to your keto chocolate eclairs.

      Q: Can you freeze eclairs? 

      A: Yes, you can freeze eclairs as a whole or in separate parts. To freeze eclairs, you need to let them cool completely, then place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze them until firm. Then you can wrap each eclair individually in plastic wrap and store them in a freezer bag or container for up to 3 months. To thaw eclairs, you can leave them in the fridge overnight or at room temperature for an hour. You can also reheat them in the oven or microwave for a few seconds to make them warm and soft.

      Q: How do you make chocolate icing for eclairs?

      A: Chocolate icing for eclairs is a simple and delicious topping that adds a rich and glossy finish to your pastries. To make chocolate icing for eclairs, you need to melt some chocolate, butter, cream, and icing sugar substitute in a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water or in the microwave. Once melted, you can whisk the mixture until smooth and shiny. Then you can dip the top of each eclair into the icing, letting the excess drip off, or drizzle the icing over the eclairs with a spoon or a fork. You can use any type of chocolate you like, such as dark, milk, or white, but make sure it is keto-friendly if you are following a keto diet. You can also add some vanilla extract, coffee, or liqueur for extra flavor.
