About half of my extended family is on the Keto diet right now, and when I tell them that I eat upwards of 150 grams of carbs every day, their eyes get big enough to make me wonder if they might be part alien after all (I always suspected when we were kids…). I think they’re afraid I’m going to become diabetic or get fat. But that side of the nutrition conversation is for another day.

What they don’t realize is that 150 grams of carbs does NOT allow for a lot of conventional pizza.

And you all know that I love pizza.

Before I became conscious of nutrition/macronutrient ratios, I worked really hard to develop the best – I mean the best! – gluten-free pizza crust recipe, and then when my husband tightened up his diet due to food allergies to eliminate grains, I set about developing the best ever coconut flour pizza crust. It was important to me, what can I say?

I love pizza. Dinner pizza, breakfast pizza, on-the-go mini pizzas – even Mexican pizza.

And carbs need not get in the way of that.

This recipe is similar to coconut flour pizza crust, but it’s actually slightly lower carb, with higher fat and protein.

This low-carb pizza crust is pretty much Fathead pizza, but using coconut flour instead of almond meal because I have to use almonds sparingly to keep my tummy happy.

  9. Give the dough a minute to come together as the coconut flour absorbs moisture
  10. Spread dough over parchment-lined pizza pan. This is easiest to do using a second piece of parchment paper as a buffer between your crust and rolling pinImage, taken from above, shows a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper with low-carb pizza crust dough rolled into an oval.
  11. Prick crust in multiple places with a fork
  12. Bake for 10-15 minutes, pricking the crust again if you see too many bubbles forming
