Before jumping to the recipe please note that the below information contains HOT TIPS for this recipe. We try and answer all your questions to guarantee a perfect keto recipe every time.

A while ago I gave myself a quest to make an easy keto pizza crust that actually tasted good.

I am fussy and to be honest have not eaten a lot of keto pizza. I just found fathead not the best for pizza (in my opinion) and so many other bases were just not great.

But then I made this one! A dairy free keto pizza base that holds up perfect!

This recipe is originally featured in our new cookbook The Healthy Family Keto Cookbook.

To get this low carb pizza base recipe right we had a team of 20+ tester try it and give feedback.

There was a lot of adjustments based on the feedback but in the end we have a recipe that tastes great.

It is also in my opinion the closest to a real pizza base.

CAN THE BASES BE FROZEN?

Absolutely! If you par-bake in the oven the pizza bases can be stored in a ziplock bag and kept frozen for up to 3 months (or longer).

HOW TO MAKE A NUT FREE KETO PIZZA CRUST RECIPE

Yes you can certainly make a nut free low carb pizza. In this recipe simply swap the almond meal for sesame flour or use a sunflour meal and pepita meal mix instead.

WHAT TO USE FOR KETO PIZZA TOPPINGS

Firstly you need to make our very delicious Keto Marinara Pizza Sauce. It is so fresh and delicious and is certainly my favourite sugar free pizza sauce recipe.

For delicious keto pizza toppings let your imagination (and keto food lists) be your guide. If you want a tuna mornay pizza go for it! But here are my favourite toppings

  • Cheese – it has to include a few varieties not just mozzarella
  • Sausage – I squeeze sausage meat out of sausages an have delicious low carb meatballs on my pizzas
  • Bacon – a favourite for many of us
  • Mushrooms – it isn’t a pizza if it hasn’t got mushrooms on it in my opinion
  • Olives – I just love my olives.

Here you can even watch me put together one of my favourite pizzas.

    I made this for the first time last night….it was tasty but we felt the base was rather dry. It actually tasted a bit better cold the next day!

    This pizza base is even better than shop bought pizza . It’s thin and crispy which is just how we love it. The dough made 2 large 30cm family size bases and I am going to make smaller bases next time and have them in the freezer for when we want a quick easy meal. Thanks for making meal time so enjoyable. This is another great recipe

    This is by far the best kero pizza base Recipe I’ve made. It is able to be picked up to eat a slice in my hand. The sauce is really tasty and so versatile. I had a meal on the table in less than an hour making the base, sauce and the adding the Toppings and cooking. 5 stars from me

    Love this pizza base, I halved it and it was perfect . Dinner tonight for me and Can’t wait for lunch tomorrow . So delicious, better than fat head dough 100% and easier to make and roll out

  • Amanda says:

    Hi Just wandering can you use psyllium husk instead of xanthum gum. Cheers

  • Lyn Wishart says:

    I’m keen to try a pizza base using Lupin flour. Could I swap it 1 for 1 with the almond flour Megan?

  • Kristen says:

    This was great and a really nice change from our usual chicken crust pizza. The edges got quite burnt on the second cook at 220C with the toppings, so next time I’ll make sure the toppings go right to the edge to protect it.
    Megan, how long do you par-cook the extra base for before freezing? I cooked both bases for 20mins, should I have taken the spare out half way?

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      Hey Kristen, I would take them out around that 10 minute mark (if they are firm enough) then cool and freeze. I have honestly been making mine on the roti maker and just using straight from the fridge (and still par-baking before topping).

    Made this last night for dinner while the bf had his bought pizza. I loaded it with heaps of toppings I can tell you now I know who’s looked better and tasted better yummo

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      Hehe! I hope you didn’t share either Debbie! So happy you enjoyed and thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. xx

  • Oksana Voskresenskaya says:

    I posted a question yesterday but it disappeared. Should the sesame seeds be ground before added to the dough? There is no baking powder required,correct?
