Keto Pizza Crust

 You'll never miss the carbs, with this KETO pizza crust.


Have you joined the KETO diet craze? While I somewhat understand the benefits of Ketosis on the body, I'm not quite convinced that a diet abundant in cheese, eggs, and bacon could be good for you. BUT I do have several friends who have been/ and still are on a Keto diet and they have lost weight. So in an attempt to help my BFF's husband be able to enjoy pizza, I stumbled upon this recipe. 

At first I was a bit skeptical of a low carb pizza crust. I was sure it was going to include weird flours I could only find at the health food store. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this pizza crust recipe uses ingredients everyone has at home. So when we had pizza night, this past weekend, I gave the crust a try.


I was very anxious to see if it would really work. After all, I had never had to spread my pizza dough in a cake pan before, to bake it, LOL. As it baked, I knew that it was going to be a hit. The smell of baking cheese was intoxicating. Once I topped it and returned it to the oven, I was excited to eat! The kids LOVED the crust, saying it had really great flavour. They couldn't even tell that it wasn't a bread type dough. 

While this was a hit at our house, I don't see myself making this crust more than a few times per year. Recently having had heart issues and now being mindful of what we are eating, I feel like this is just too much of the "bad" fats for my diet.

** I got the idea for this recipe on Plain Chicken. I do not take full creative ownership of this recipe. It is one I adapted from an already published recipe **




Keto Pizza Crust (Low Carb)
adapted from Plain Chicken

4 oz cream cheese, softened
2 extra large eggs
1/4 C parmesan
1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
1 C mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 C tomato puree
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano
additional shredded mozzarella cheese for topping
favorite pizza toppings ( we had pepperoni, ham, olive and mushrooms)

In a bowl, combine the tomato puree with the basil and oregano. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 9x13 inch baking dish with parchment paper.

In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Beat in the eggs, Italian seasoning and parmesan, until well combined. Stir in the mozzarella cheese. Spread cheese mixture evenly in prepared baking dish.

Bake for 20-25 minutes; until browned. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Place cooled crust on a parchment lined baking sheet. Spread with tomato puree and sprinkle with additional mozzarella, and desired toppings.

Bake once again in a 375 degree F oven, for 15 minutes; until toppings are bubbly.

  2. Sounds like fathead dough! Keto doesn't need to be like Atkins filled with bacon and cheese, but there are people who do it that way and still loose weight! Your finished pizza looks delicious!

    1. Thank you! It seems all I see for Keto recipes is bacon and cheese. It definitely would be something I research a great deal more, were I to decide to follow the diet.

 In this AMAZING crockpot recipe, t ender chicken is bursting with flavour and cooked a garlic and brown sugar glaze. Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

I originally saw versions of this recipe on Pinterest and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work!  I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.  Crockpot Brown

Lemon Crinkle Cookies

  These Lemon Crinkle Cookies are deliciously tart, not too sweet, and pillow-y soft.  I have so many wonderful holiday baking memories. It wasn't until I was older, that Mom actually let me help her with all the tons of baking she did. When I was little, I'd sit and watch her work, fascinated at how easy she made it look. When I moved out on my own, my holiday baking tradition became one of re creating the desserts of my childhood. I went many years not being able to spend Christmas with my family, so my tradition was a way to feel closer to my them. After my children were born, I had wonderful plans for holiday traditions. Baking cookies, while the snow was gently falling outside. My children, prim and proper, not making a single mess, decorating cookies until they looked like works of art. Sounds pleasant, doesn't it? My wake up call came when my son was two. The cookie dough had been chilled and we were set to roll, cut and decorate our cookies. That's when I almost

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

 A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer. When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right?? This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.
