This is the best Keto Pizza – no soggy crust here! Most fathead pizza crust recipes are limp and flavorless. Not this pizza crust! A great low-carb dinner.
My husband has been doing the Keto diet for over a year now religiously. He has tried all of the fathead pizza dough recipes out there with cream cheese in the dough and they have all left us wanting.
All the low carb pizza crust recipes were limp and soggy. So soft that there’s no way you could pick it up. It could only be eaten with a fork. Same with cauliflower pizza crust.
Finally, he came up with this low-carb pizza crust that has cheese in the crust which makes for a crispy crust. As crispy as you want it to. The longer you cook it this pizza crust recipe the crispier it gets. Top it with your favorite toppings!
We basically have this keto dough recipe memorized because we make it so much.
The size and shape of your pizza is up to you. My husband prefers a thin crust. I prefer a moderately thicker crust and a little less crispy. Pizza night can be healthy and everyone can add their own toppings.

- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons cottage cheese (sour cream can be substituted)
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon pink Himalayan or sea salt
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, (or any other shredded cheese)
- low-carb pizza sauce (like Roa's), shredded mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, sausage, veggies
- Preheat oven or air fryer to 400 degrees and line a cookie sheet or pizza stone with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, cottage cheese, and butter. Set aside.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond flour, garlic powder, and salt. Add dry mixture to the wet ingredients and stir to combine. Mixture will be wet. Stir in the cheddar cheese.
- Roll dough with a rolling pin between two parchment paper sheets to desired size, thickness, and shape. The dough will be very wet. You will need to peel the top parchment sheet off and bake it on the bottom sheet of parchment on a baking sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until desired level of crispiness. The longer you bake it the crispier it gets!
- Remove from oven and load your pizza however you like with all of your favorite sauces, cheese, and toppings. Bake pizza for another 5-8 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Top with grated Parmesan cheese if desired.
This was REALLY good and very easy to make. I’ve made the fathead dough for pizza numerous times and was looking for something a little different. This was perfect! The flavors are so good. I added a little bit of garlic powder and some Italian seasoning to the crust and baked it until it was getting crispy. I topped with homemade marina sauce, fresh mozzarella and basil paste – DEE-LISH!!! I added some fresh grated Parmesan to the bottom of the crust also to add some extra crisp to it.
Can you use chickpea flour? If so, what measurements? Also, can you use fat free cottage cheese it light sour cream?
I have not tried it with chickpea flour. You can use light versions although for keto whole fat is best
How much is one serving?
I serving is 1/4 of the pizza
We make this pizza at least once a month, we love it. We have a huge 15″ pizza stone so I double the recipe. I started adding oregano to the dough and a pinch of cayenne just for a little added oomph
Its so great.
We top it with a full combo pizza topping Italian sausage and veggies and more cheese
It’s a keeper, we have fun making it every month
Awesome to hear!
So delicious!!! I lay out parchment and spread the crust on in 2 sections with a silicone spatula. Pepperoni, green peppers and feta or mozzarella are our favorites. But I think this crust would be good with any topping 🙂
Yes definitely versatile.
Still loving this…but I forgot to rate it!!! Thanks for the great recipe.
I followed the instructions as written and it came out great!!!!! So delicious and yes it was wonderful to be able to hold a slice in my hand vs. use a fork and knife.
That makes me happy!
I made this pizza and love it. How many servings do you use to determine the nutritional values. I cut my pizza into about 10 pieces. Thanks and again I love it.
The top left of the recipe card says the servings which is 4.
Thank you and if I’m doing and reading this right, those are pretty generous portions for the nutritional information. That’s amazing and thank you.
If almond flour is not an option due to nut allergy, would you recommend a substitute for it?
I’m not sure. I haven’t tested it with other flours unfortunately.
I believe Lupin Flour can be substituted for Almond Flour with no adjusted measurements.
If you want to use Coconut Flour you only use 1/3 of the amount called for in Almond Flour. So, for this recipe it calls for 1 cup Almond Flour, you’d use 1/3 cup Coconut Flour to replace it.
I hope that helps.
Love this recipe. Make it a lot. Tonight adding flax seed to crust.
Good to hear!
Loved it! Used parm instead of cheddar and loaded it up with peppers. Question about nutritional info, assume it’s just for the dough? Not inclusive of any cheese topping?
Yeah I didn’t list any toppings so that wouldn’t be included.
OMG!!!! THIS PIZZA IS AMAZING!!! I’m tickled I can have pizza on keto now 🙂 I made it tonight with pepperoni and black olives and simply dipped it into pizza sauce. Major plus: I have some for tomorrow whenever my body decides to rumble which won’t be til like early afternoon. This recipe is a keto keeper, when I’m craving pizza. On another note, I’m still trying to eat consciously. Like last night, I made some air fryer chicken and some broccoli steamed in microwave with some avocado for dinner with everything but the bagel seasoning on my veggies so yeah, I’m trying to keep it on the healthy side cause my body, soul and mind is thanking me for going keto. I’ll be back to try out more recipes 🙂
You’re welcome! so glad you liked it!
Great recipe! I couldn’t get the crust off the bottom sheet of paper after a baked it. Recommendations? Is wax paper the same thing as parchment paper? I used wax paper. Thank you Christy!
Nope they are definitely not the same. Parchment paper will not stick.
