Keto Cheese Stuffed Crust Pizza


Step 1Preheat oven to 180 °C/ 355 °F (fan assisted), or 200 °C/ 400 °F (conventional).

Step 2Place the shredded mozzarella into a microwave safe bowl and heat on high for 1 minute. Remove and stir and then heat in 30 second bursts until the cheese has fully melted.

Step 3Add the almond flour and mix to form a dough.

Step 4Using a sheet of baking paper, roll the dough out into a larger circle than you want for your pizza.

Step 5Place the cheese sticks at regular intervals around the edges and roll to contain the cheese. You will need to work quite quickly here as the dough gets harder to handle as it cools.

Step 6Place the baking paper and crust on to a tray and bake for 10 minutes.

Step 7When cooked, spread the passata on top of the pizza crust and sprinkle the shredded mozzarella on top.

Step 8Lay the slices of fresh mozzarella around and then return to the oven for a further 10 minutes.

Step 9Sprinkle with shredded basil and serve with a grind of black pepper. Drizzle with olive oil.

Step 10Store, wrapped well, in the refrigerator for up to four days. It will get soggy so reheat before serving.
