Well you know me, I just can't leave well enough alone when it comes to low carb keto pizza! So yes I had to come up with yet ANOTHER recipe variation for my favorite food on earth. For all of my pizza related recipes, please see the low carb pizza summary post.
The other night I had a bunch of pizza toppings available, but I was too tired and hungry to make any of my wonderful low carb pizza crusts. So I just made a crustless version of pizza for a very quick yet satisfying dinner! You could even take this to work for lunch pretty easily…
Here it is… the Holy Grail of low carb pizza crusts! I bow down to you my cheesy, almond flour disc of goodness! If you prefer a chewy/crispy gluten free crust, read on for a great recipe… no actually TWO recipes, because I experimented with an even lower carb almond flour version of the Holy Grail, with great results! You can definitely fool the wheat eaters in your life with this recipe… it tastes amazingly like the real thing.
At great risk of showing my complete nerdiness (and maybe too great of attention to detail), I have a prepared a summary post for you on all of the low carb pizza crust recipes that I have cooked lately. Please see below for all of the dirty details on which one is better than the other. WHICH ONE will be the winner of this low carby, grain free contest? Read on to find out!
The one thing I was super bummed about when I started a low carb keto diet (a.k.a. ketogenic diet) is that I would have to give up pizza. I absolutely LOVE pizza and always have. There are low carb pizzas in the freezer case at the grocery store, but I am trying to stay away from processed foods as much as possible, and I'm pretty sensitive to gluten, even in small amounts.
When I first heard of the cauliflower crust I was pretty skeptical. CAULIFLOWER?? Yuck. I mean, I love the cauli-mashed potatoes and the cauli-rice too, but it seemed to go pretty far to say that cauliflower could replace a gluten filled (or even gluten free starchy) crust.
Well let me tell you, I have just created the mecca of low carb, gluten free, vegetarian pizza. I have actually made pizza MULTIPLE times this weekend trying to make a fairly crispy cauliflower crust, and the results have been amazing to say the least! My other family members that are not low carbers even said that they would eat this pizza, and the confused and surprised looks on their faces when they tasted the pizza were priceless!
