Low-Carb Thin Crust White Pizza

|Low-Carb Thin Crust White Pizza

When I ask what people miss on a low-carb diet, many often mention pizza. I like the cauli-crust base, bacon or cheese base but they're not quite the same as real pizza. The crust is what makes all the difference!

So I spent a few days trying different sorts of pizza crusts and made two that I really liked - both are crispy and taste amazing! The recipe below includes dairy but I also made a dairy-free pizza which I will post very soon :-)

This recipe makes one small pizza which is enough for four snacks or two regular servings.

  3. Line a baking sheet or a medium skillet with a parchment paper (skillet makes it easy to create a round shape). Spread the batter evenly using a hand roll or your fingers until very thin. Place in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes until lightly golden.
    You will need to wet your fingers to prevent the batter sticking on them. |Low-Carb Thin Crust White Pizza
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the white sauce. Mix the cream cheese, cream and onion powder until well combined. |Low-Carb Thin Crust White Pizza

As always, thanks for an amazing recipe. I can't wait to try it!
Also FYI, I've noticed an Android app that seems to be using the photos from your KetoDiet book. I'm not sure if that's okay or if you know about it or whatever.

Thank you Jenny! It's one of the best pizza crusts I've made Smile I will definitely contact Google - this is copyright violation, as I had no idea about them using my photos. Thanks for telling me!

I hope you manage to sort thing out okay. You've really done a great job with the KetoDiet book and app (though I wish it was on android!) and you deserve every bit of the credit for your recipes and photos.

Thank you Jenny! Without getting into details, our ultimate goal is to make it available for everyone, not just Apple users. Thanks for your support Jenny, I really appreciate that!

I make up a batch of Amazing Maria bread, and put 2 levered ice cream scoops of dough, formed into a ball, on a tortilla press, and PRESS!  The press needs to have some sort of paper on the bottom and top of the dough for ease of both transfer to a baking sheet, and clean-up.  Why do I press instead of roll out?  Not enough counter space.
Amazon sells parchment paper rounds in all sizes, so I opt for the 10" ones to fit my large press.
One batch of Amazing Maria bread dough makes about 10 crusts, and these crusts can be filled and rolled over for calzones, hand pies, etc.  Bake the rounds at 350 for 30 mins., whether filled or not.
These baked crusts are freezable as long as there is paper of some sort between them.

That's great Wenchypoo! I don't have a tortilla press but I bet it makes it easy to form and the result is very thin and crispy Smile

A W E S O M E! I can't wait to try this! I've been looking for a good pizza recipe for months. I don't like the taste of coconut flour in most of the recipes I found and I never thought of using protein powder. Is there any substitute in case I don't have any right now?

Thanks Jen! I guess you can try ground flax (1/4 cup) or coconut flour (2 tbsp) instead... or just use more almond flour (1/4 cup). I use the protein powder because it binds better and makes it crispy Smile
