The correct ratio of ingredients is very important for this recipe, that's why we recommend using a kitchen scale and the oz/g measurements instead of cups.
Ingredients for the pizza crust:
Step 1 – Preparing the pizza sauce
g diced tomatoes, tsp basil, tsp oregano, tsp salt, tsp garlic powder, tsp pepper
oz diced tomatoes, tsp basil, tsp oregano, tsp salt, tsp garlic powder, tsp pepper
cup diced tomatoes, tsp basil, tsp oregano, tsp salt, tsp garlic powder, tsp pepper
Prepare the keto pizza crust while the sauce is simmering.
Step 2 – Preparing the pizza crust
Stir often, until everything has melted and is well combined.
Once you’re done, you shouldn’t be able to make out any “streaks of cheese” in your dough and it should look pretty much like regular dough.
If you can still see chunks of cheese – knead a bit longer.
Roll out the dough until it’s about 0.2″/5mm to 0.3″/7mm thick.
If it’s not too important to you how pretty your pizza is, you can continue to the next step.
If you do, however, want a beautiful round pizza like the one you can see in our photos, you can place a round plate with a diameter of approx. 9.8″/25cm on top of your rolled out dough and cut around the plate with a knife.
You can sprinkle a bit of almond flour or lay a sheet of parchment paper on your countertop so the dough won’t stick to your table.
You can use the leftover dough for other recipes, for example our mini keto pepperoni pizzas.
Puree the sauce with an immersion blender until no large chunks are left while the pizza crust is in the oven.
The pizza crust will probably rise up quite a bit in your oven – but that’s nothing to worry about. Simply press it down a bit before you add the toppings.
g shredded mozzarella, g sliced pepperoni, pizza sauce
oz shredded mozzarella, oz sliced pepperoni, pizza sauce
cup shredded mozzarella, oz sliced pepperoni, pizza sauce
Spread the pizza sauce over your pizza crust and sprinkle the shredded mozzarella on top.
Top it off by laying a few pepperoni slices on top of your pizza.
Place the baking tray back into your oven.
Reheat your pizza by baking it for a few minutes at 350°F/180°C in your preheated oven until the cheese has melted again.
