Just when we thought our only options were fat head and cauliflower pizza, we came up with this single serve, deep dish Low Carb Pizza recipe! It defies everything you believe about keto pizza – if you’ve forgotten what “real” pizza tastes like, get ready to remember.
Low Carb Pizza Base
How deep you want this keto pizza to be, is really up to you and the skillet you choose to make it in. We packed this low-carb deep dish with three different meats, mozzarella cheese and a low carb pizza sauce we found in the grocery! Based on the nutrition, you can tell how hearty and filling it’s going to be, but it’s worth every single calorie and then some.
Low Carb Pizza Crust
The pizza crust recipe is the most important aspect of this low carb pizza. To ensure it is cooked through, you’ll need to cook it in the oven on its own first. This is why it’s so important to use a skillet that can go into the oven! If you don’t have one, you can still make this, although we highly recommend getting one. We used our 6-inch cast iron skillet for this keto pizza! The crust is a simple, three ingredient mixture that works great with almond flour or almond meal. I’m partial to the gritty, nutty texture of almond meal while Matt prefers almond flour. This is an almond flour pizza crust that is different than your traditional fat head variety.
The Best Keto Pizza?
So we’ve tested out all three: fathead crust, cauliflower crust and now the fabled deep dish crust. And, the best low carb pizza has to be….drum roll please….deep dish! Let us revisit our old pizza friends and look at the nutrition of all three crust side by side.

- Fat: 43g

Seems pretty clear that deep dish takes the win right there, and I know Matt would have to agree! This pizza is the real deal, we kid you not!! If you don’t believe us, just put it to the true test and give it a try – you won’t ever see low carb pizza the same!
