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.
