<article itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Recipe"> <section itemprop="description"> <p>Pizza night is the highlight of the week! That warm, crispy crust loaded with ooey-gooey cheese and plenty of toppings is the stuff comfort food dreams are made of. And pizza night only gets better when it goes low carb! That’s because many classic pizza toppings are perfect for the keto diet. All you have to do is master the recipe for low-carb fathead dough and you’re on your way to keto pizza perfection.</p> </section> <section> <header>Can I Eat Pizza on the Keto Diet?</header> <p>A classic American comfort food, pizza seems like a carb-loaded no-go on keto. But with the help of one simple recipe, that all changes! Instead of a traditional crust, put your cheese on the bottom with low-carb fathead dough. Quickly whip up this keto staple using almond flour, cream cheese, and mozzarella. It forms the basis for many delicious treats, from keto pizza to bagels and <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/low-carb-soft-pretzel-bites/" rel="noreferrer">pretzels</a>. The trick to a great fathead crust is to ensure that all the cheese is thoroughly melted before mixing in the eggs. The dough will be extremely sticky, but don’t worry—we have a solution! Simply coat your hands and the sheet pan with nonstick spray (or rub on a little olive oil) and you can easily press it out into a crust.</p> </section> <section> <header>What Pizza Toppings Are Keto Friendly?</header> <p>Once you’ve perfected your low-carb fathead dough pizza crust, the sky’s the limit when it comes to topping your keto pizza! Stay away from sugar-loaded sauces and use your own fresh toppings. In our recipe, we’ve opted for sausage and low-carb veggies, but there’s something out there for everyone. Try a chicken, bacon, and <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/dairy-free-keto-ranch-dressing" rel="noreferrer">ranch</a> version. Or top your crust with hot sauce, rotisserie chicken, and blue cheese for a buffalo-style treat. </p> <div class="sub-head">Low-Carb Pizza Sauces</div> <ul> <li>Homemade <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/kale-pesto/" rel="noreferrer">pesto</a></li> <li>Homemade tomato sauce (or no-sugar-added jarred sauce)</li> <li>Garlic butter</li> <li>Alfredo sauce</li> <li><a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/dairy-free-keto-ranch-dressing" rel="noreferrer">Keto ranch</a></li> <li><a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/homemade-keto-thai-sweet-chili-sauce" rel="noreferrer">Keto sweet chili sauce</a></li> <li>Hot sauce</li> <li>Ricotta cheese with garlic and olive oil</li> </ul> <div class="sub-head">Low-Carb Veggie Pizza Toppings</div> <ul> <li>Spinach</li> <li>Kale</li> <li>Bell peppers</li> <li>Onions</li> <li>Mushrooms</li> <li>Broccoli</li> <li>Basil</li> </ul> <div class="sub-head">Low-Carb Meat Pizza Toppings</div> <ul> <li>Pepperoni</li> <li>Sausage</li> <li>Rotisserie chicken</li> <li>Bacon</li> <li>Salami</li> </ul> </section> <section> <header>Can I Refrigerate Fathead Dough?</header> <p>Fathead dough is amazing for meal prep! It both refrigerates and freezes exceedingly well. Kept in a sealed zip-top bag or airtight container, fathead dough will store in the fridge for up to 10 days. You can also freeze it for up to 2 months. Just let the dough come to room temperature before shaping into pizzas (or <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/plain-fathead-dough-bagel/" rel="noreferrer">bagels</a>, or whatever else you like!), then bake and serve. You can also meal prep pizzas in advance and refrigerate or freeze them for later. However, it’s worth noting that the crust may bake up less crispy if you use moist toppings like mushrooms or lots of sauce.</p> </section> <hr class="divider-15 divider-thick mx-auto"> <section class="recipe"> <header itemprop="name">Keto Sheet Pan Pizza</header> <div class="prep"> <span> <meta itemprop="prepTime" content="PT15M">Prep Time: 30 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="cookTime" content="PT35M">Cooking Time: 30 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="recipeYield">Serves: 8</span> </div> <div class="sub-head">Ingredients:</div> <p><i>For the Fathead Dough:</i></p> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 tablespoons cream cheese</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 cup almond flour (not almond meal)</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac14; cup coconut flour</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 &frac12; cups shredded mozzarella cheese</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac14; cup shredded Parmesan cheese</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 large eggs</li> </ul> <p><i>For the Toppings:</i></p> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 cup diced tomatoes with Italian herbs (about half a 14.5-ounce can), drained</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 tablespoon olive oil</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 links mild or hot Italian sausage, casings removed</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 medium onion, sliced</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 medium bell pepper, sliced</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">8 ounces baby spinach</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 cloves garlic, minced</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 cups shredded mozzarella </li> </ul> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium"> <div class="sub-head">Instructions:</div> <ol itemprop="recipeInstructions"> <p style="margin-left: -20px;"><i>Make the Crust</i></p> <li>Preheat the oven to 375&deg;F.</li> <li>In a medium saucepan, melt together the cream cheese, almond flour, coconut flour, mozzarella, and parmesan over low heat, stirring occasionally.</li> <li>Once melted together and thoroughly combined, take off the heat and beat in the eggs.</li> <li>Spray a rimmed 13x9 sheet pan with nonstick spray.
