Keto Pepperoni Deep Dish Pizza


Step 1Preheat the oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F (fan assisted), or 220 °C/ 425 °F (conventional). Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks.

Step 2Prepare the Marinara Sauce or use any sugar-free pizza sauce.

Step 3Start beating the egg whites on medium-low speed. Continue for about 2 minutes until the whites become foamy. Then, add the cream of tartar (or apple cider vinegar). Beat until stiff peaks form. Add the egg white powder and beat again. Add the egg yolks.

Step 4Use a rubber spatula to gently fold in the egg yolks and grated parmesan cheese.

Step 5For the topping you'll need Marinara Sauce, sliced fresh mozzarella and pepperoni slices. Have these at hand.

Step 6Grease an ovenproof 8-inch (20-cm) skillet with olive oil (or avocado oil) and heat it over medium heat. Pour in the fluffy pancake mixture, and then cook on low heat for 1 minute. Add the marinara sauce, sliced mozzarella and pepperoni slices (2 at a time) in the middle, leaving about an inch (2.5 cm) on the sides.

Step 7Place in the preheated oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until the pizza is cooked through and the cheese is melted.

Step 8Optionally, garnish with fresh basil and serve. Eat one slice for a light dish or two slices for a more satisfying meal, or up to three as needed. You can add bulk by serving this pizza with a simple side like this Arugula Salad.

Step 9Serve warm or store in the fridge for up to a day and reheat before serving.
