We’ve explored different keto friendly pizzas here at The Bacon Monologues and each has different qualities that make them appealing. Keto Snack Pizzas have a thin and light crunch crust thanks to the tortilla crust. The Almost Real Crust Keto Pizza is a full sized pizza with a nice doughy crust that is a great dinner option. Both are great options for different occasions. Sometimes you want a simple and filling option for one person. That’s where the Simple Keto Pan Pizza comes in to play. The crust is thick and fluffy like a personal pan pizza. Check it out!
Start by heating a tablespoon of olive oil in a small skillet to medium high heat. Using an immersion hand blender mix your eggs, water, parmesan cheese, psyllium husk and salt very well. You want to lift the immersion blender in and out of the mixture to blend some air into it. This will help your crust be fluffier. Remember the more bubbles the better! It also helps to mix your “dough” in a container with high sides so you don’t make a mess. Once the mixture is well blended pour it into your preheated skillet and try to spread it around in a nice circle. This will be a little difficult because the psyllium husk rapidly absorbs the water and will thicken rather quickly. I use a rubber spatula coated with a little cooking spray to accomplish this. Cook for roughly 3 minutes each side or until it’s golden brown.
Now set your oven to broil. If your skillet is oven safe you can leave your crust in it. If not transfer your crust to a pizza stone or a pan. Place your pizza sauce, cheese and toppings on your crust. Place it in the oven and watch closely. Within 5 minutes or so your cheese will begin to bubble and you’re done! Total time for this recipe is 10-12 minutes and it’s delicious! Enjoy!
Anyone on keto knows what a struggle it is to find a pizza replacement. I’ve tried so many and none of them have come close to this one. The original recipe has appeared on other sites. I modified it slightly to my own tastes so I’m sharing my favorite keto pizza with you! This one has that feel of a real slice of pizza. You can pick it up and the crust crunches in your mouth. Overall it’s very satisfiying!
To make the crust, first preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Then take your two cups mozzarella cheese and place them in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave the cheese on medium high until it is soft and smooshy. Be careful not to microwave the cheese too long as you don’t want the edges to brown. This takes generally just a minute or two.
Once the mozzarella cheese is all melted add your cream cheese and egg to the mozzarella in the bowl and mix it up well. Then add your psyllium husk powder, almond flour, salt and pepper. Mix well again. Once it’s cool enough to touch you will want to work your “dough” into a ball. If you have a pizza pan this is a great time to smear a little olive oil all over it and then place your dough ball in the middle. Start working the edges out with your finger tips until you’ve made a pizza crust. Place your pizza crust in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Take your crust out after the initial 10 minute bake, flip over and bake for another 3-4 minutes. If you’ve followed along well to this point you should have this.
Now you get to add the toppings. First start with your 1/2 cup Garlic Basil Marinara and then your 1 Cup Mozzarella and Pepperoni Slices. (You can put whatever keto friendly toppings you’d like on it!) Bake again for another 3-5 minutes or until the cheese is all melted. I hope you enjoy this pizza! I know I do! (P.S. I’m going to get one of these and pretend like I’m in classic pizza shop!)
