    This section is where I share a few suggestions and explanations for the ingredients you’ll need for this recipe.

    (You can find the exact amounts needed on the recipe card embedded below this section).

  • shredded mozzarella
  • full-fat cream cheese
  • coconut flour
  • defatted almond flour
    The right almond flour can make or break a recipe, especially when it comes to baking.
    That’s why I highly recommend using defatted almond flour.
    It’s very different from most other kinds of almond flours out there as it has most of its natural fat content removed and thus behaves very differently compared to other kinds of almond flour and is much better suited for most keto baking recipes.

    Most brands simply sell finely ground almond meal as almond flour, which can be fine for some recipes and is cheaper, but it has more calories (by a lot) and is not the best fit for most keto baking recipes.
    It has more fat and can cause recipe failures because of this, like melted cookies.

    Defatted almond flour like this one from Sukrin, is much lower in calories, has a naturally high protein content and – most importantly – is the best replacement for wheat flour I’ve ever come across (and I’ve tried a lot).

  • egg yolks
  • xanthan gum
    Xanthan gum acts as a keto-friendly thickening agent and will make your cookies softer and chewy (just as cookies should be, in my humble opinion!)

    You don’t have to use xanthan gum, you can also use guar gum and locust bean gum in the same ratio. (Depending on what’s easier to find in your region.)

  • salt
  • diced tomatoes
  • basil
  • oregano
  • garlic powder
  • pepper
  • sliced pepperoni

    Ingredients for the keto pizza crust:
     6 oz shredded mozzarella (170g)
     2.80 oz full-fat cream cheese (80g)
      cup coconut flour (1.4 oz/40g)
     ¼ cup defatted almond flour (1.1 oz/30g)
     2 egg yolks
     ½ tsp xanthan gum
     ½ tsp salt
    Ingredients for the keto pizza sauce:
     1 cup diced tomatoes (8.8 oz/250g)
     1 tsp basil
     ½ tsp oregano
     ¼ tsp salt
      tsp garlic powder
      tsp pepper
    Ingredients for the toppings:
     1 cup shredded mozzarella (3.5 oz/100g)
     1.20 oz sliced pepperoni (35g)

    Preparing the pizza sauce:
    1

    Add all of the ingredients for the pizza sauce to a sauce pan and let the tomatoes simmer at medium heat for about 12-15 minutes until most of the liquid has evaporated.

    Prepare the keto pizza crust while the sauce is simmering.
     

    Preparing the keto pizza crust:
    2

    Add the mozzarella and cream cheese to a frying pan and melt both over medium heat.
    Stir often, until everything has melted and is well combined.
     

    3

    Add the melted cheese into a larger bowl and let it cool down a bit, while you mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
     

    4

    Add the dry ingredients to the melted cheese and knead with your hands until you have no flour in your bowl left.
     

    5

    Add the egg yolks to the bowl and knead thoroughly until you get a smooth dough.

    ☝︎ 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.
     

    6

    Preheat your oven to 350°F/180°C.
     

    7

    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 these keto mini pizzas.
     

    8

    Place the pizza crust on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake it for about 10 minutes without any toppings.

    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.
     

    9

    Take the pre-baked pizza crust out of your oven to add the toppings and don't turn off your oven while you do so.

    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.
     

    10

    Bake your keto pepperoni pizza for 10 more minutes, until the cheese has melted.
     

    Storage:
    11

    The low carb pepperoni pizza tastes best fresh out of the oven, but you can also wrap leftover slices with plastic wrap and store them in your fridge for up to 4 days.

    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.
