low carb pizza crust

So, I’m doing the low carbish thing.

And all I could think about was pizza. I was dreaming about eating pizza and seriously, if you’re not watching carbs like a hawk, my other pizza crust recipe is insane.

But, yeah, I’m watching my carbs.

Not going Keto or anything but staying between 50 to 80 carbs a day.

So back to pizza. I’ve been dreaming of tearing up a crust and finally, after many a failure got a winner.

You can skip the Parmesan cheese if you would like to make it completely dairy-free.

    I love the color of that crust! Its looks so crunchy crispy

  • June 15, 2015 at 12:21 pm

    Omg Kelly this crust + the whole pizza looks delicious! Can you deliver?!

    • August 2, 2015 at 6:11 pm

      Ha! If we are ever in the same neck of the woods, then yes!

    This looks great. I look forward to trying it. I’ve been making a Vegetable-Crust Pizza, but it’s definitely not what you think of when you imagine a traditional pizza.

    Thank you mam, a crust without cauliflower.All this is stuff in my cabinet or frig… all the time.

    And on another note…. all you guys reading this should REALLY check out 20 dishes. I am a new CONVERT and so totally enthused.

    I am fixin; to discipilize you. I’m so exicted about what has happened in just one week of using 20 Dishes that I’m blog bombing. I’m learning how to have supper ready every night, for exactly the right amount of people. and not bust my butt. Today it took me 10 min to prepare supper, it did take baking time of an hour, but I was getting ready for work so I didn’t even notice that time.. I didn’t make the one hour of prep for the week, it took me almost double (it is my first week of doing this,) and those two-ish hours made my Monday, and my kids Monday, fantastic. And tomorrow… Chicken and veggie soup with leftover salad from tonight. Talk about simplicity and ease.

    I’m always on the lookout for a primal pizza crust and recipe this looks amazing!

  • June 17, 2015 at 2:23 pm

    This crust looks awesome! In fact, I want to grab the slice straight from the screen.

    Is there an acceptable substitute for the psyllium seed powder?

  • Karen

    You say there’s a dairy-free option. Is the parm cheese optional or is there a good non-dairy sub? Thanks! Can’t wait to try.

    You’re adding to my to-do list with all these amazing recipes.

  • January 7, 2016 at 6:18 pm

    I want to try this recipe but I don’t know what psyllium seed powder is. Where do you purchase it? Can you omit it?

    The instructions say to remove the bottom sheet of parchment paper, but the photos show it still in place. Is it necessary to remove it? Or is there something missing from the instructions?
    I’m keen to try this recipe, it looks great!

    • November 13, 2016 at 4:46 pm

      Hi Retta, I just had it there for the photo hun. You want remove to paper so the bottom of the crust can crisp up.

    A lot of the recipe like pizza crust and bake good use coconut flour!!! My LO is super allergic. Are there others without coconut flour used in them? But still taste good?

    Thanks for the recipe! I tried this tonight – only changes were omitting the Parmesan cheese and subbing in flax meal for 1T of the almond flour. Oh, as I wrote that, I just realized that I forgot the oil – oops! I bet it would have been better with that. It was good how I made it – I wish I could have gotten it a bit crispier (maybe the oil would have helped that), but it was quite good for being low carb. It would be good just at bread to eat – I think I might try it as pita bread next time.

    Hi, I’m intolerant to dairy and in the ketogenic diet. Sadly a lot of the low carb pizza base recipes have cheese in them. What difference would it make to the pizza if I omit the cheese? I’m hoping for a tasty, crispy pizza base!

    • October 29, 2017 at 10:52 am

      I make it without cheese all the time hun. It’s ok to skip it!

    I take coarse psyllium husks all the time as a supplement. If I grind it in my food processor for this recipe will that work?
