I recently made this savoury galette for a friend visiting for lunch and she had no idea that it was keto.

In fact, she laughed and asked what had happened to my keto lifestyle. Imagine the look on her face when I told her that this galette is fully keto. That’ll teach her, lol.

This is perfect for a fancy low-carb lunch or a light dinner, it would probably work as a pot luck contribution too.

The creamy lush filling is gently flavoured with the thyme, while the buttery mushrooms add a delicious depth to this healthy low-carb dish. It's actually quite similar to keto pizza! If you prefer sweet, try this Keto Summer Berry Galette. Enjoy!

Note: For a nut-free option, try the dough in this recipe using flax meal.

Ingredients (makes 6 servings)

  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 small brown onion, minced (40 g/ 1.4 oz)
  • 2 1/2 cups brown or mixed mushrooms, sliced thickly (200 g/ 7.1 oz)
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme or 1-2 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tbsp butter, divided (43 g/ 1.5 oz)
  • 3/4 cup + 1 tbsp ricotta cheese (200 g/ 7.1 oz)
  • 1/2 cup grated gouda cheese (57 g/ 2 oz)
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (15 ml)
  • 1 cup almond flour (100 g/ 3.5 oz)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (170 g/ 6 oz) - use low-moisture, part-skim, shredded mozzarella cheese; not fresh mozzarella.
  • 1 heaped tbsp cream cheese (30 g/ 1.1 oz)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning or dried oregano, basil and thyme


  1. Mince the onion and garlic, and slice the mushrooms. Mushroom & Ricotta Keto Galette
  2. In a frying pan, add half of the butter and the sliced mushrooms and cook until browned and crisped. (Mushrooms contain about 30% water, so putting them on the tart raw and then baking will result in a runny and not as tasty result.)

  3. While the mushrooms are cooking, melt the rest of the butter in a small saucepan and then finely chop the onion and the garlic, adding to the butter and sautéing until soft.
  4. In a bowl, place the ricotta, gouda, thyme leaves, eggs and butter mixture from the saucepan and stir briskly until creamy and combined. Set aside. Mushroom & Ricotta Keto Galette
  5. Preheat oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F (fan assisted), or 220 °C/ 425 °F (conventional). To make the dough, melt mozzarella and cream cheese in a microwave safe bowl on high for 1 minute. Remove and stir, then microwave for a further 30 seconds.
  6. Stir and then add almond flour, seasonings and egg and mix well until a soft dough forms.

  7. Roll out between sheets of baking paper until very thin, in a rough circle. Set aside.

  8. Spoon over the base of the dough in a circle, leaving a 2-3 cm (about 1 inch) border around the edges.
  9. Scatter the mushrooms over the top and then fold and roll the edges into a rough crust around the filling. Bake for 25 minutes.

  10. Drizzle with olive oil and garnish with additional thyme prior to serving. Store in the refrigerator, covered for up to three days, but note that the base will start to go soft.

This is quickly becoming a regular meal.  Easy to make, filling and tastes delicious!!  I have used different cheeses and it's good every time.

Thank you Steve, I'm glad it's a favourite! 😊

I’m having a hard time finding Gouda in my town; can I substitute a different cheese?

Absolutely, any hard cheese will work here!

This was delicious and I was shocked at how easy it was to make. It looks so fancy that I was expecting it to be time consuming, but it is really simple to put together.  My family absolutely loved it.  

Thank you Krissie, this dough is so versatile, I use it to make pockets, bread rolls and even pizza 😊

This looks great and I bet you can freeze it too. I don't like mushrooms but I can think of several other foods I could put on top. Definitely going to try it, thanks.

The dough definitely freezes well and the filling shouldn't separate because it doesn't have much moisture left in the cheese. You may like this one 😊 Low-Carb Roasted Tomato Galette

Thanks so much!
