Thick Keto Pizza Crust

This is my favourite low-carb pizza crust by far! It is not eggy like others and it is thick enough to carry flavour and support the toppings. 

I usually top my pizza with chicken, bacon and other meats. I have not added toppings into the nutrition considerations.

This crust is FILLING, I consider a quarter of the crust one serving. The nutritional information below is for the entire crust, no toppings. 

-take the bacon grease and add a teaspoon to a tablespoon to the crust mix, this will help everything mix together if the greasy is still hot
-mix the crust in a large measuring cup and then leave it for a few minutes on the preheated oven to melt everything together, this will make the cream cheese less chunky when you whisk it 


-4 Tablespoons Of Herb & Garlic Cream Cheese
-3 Eggs
-1/4 Cup Whipping Cream
-1/4 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
-1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
-1/4 Teaspoon Italian Seasoning
-1 Cup Grated Cheese (I use Tex Mex or Marble)

Prep Work
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
-Grease pan and layer one cup of grated cheese on the greased pan. 


-Beat cream cheese with eggs in a medium bowl. 
-Add whipping cream, grated parmesan cheese, italian spices and garlic to the first mixture one at a time. 

-Pour mixture over grated cheese lining the pan. 

-Bake for 10-12 minutes and then let cool. 

Your crust is now finished, now just add your favourite sauce and toppings and you will have  one of the best low-carb pizzas around. 

Top It Off

-Spread sauce on crust.
-Add toppings and cheese.
-Bake for 15 minutes. I find this varies by oven, keep an eye on your pizza and make the call when it bubbles.
-Let stand for 10 minutes. This will harden everything up and make it easier to eat, it also melts together further for a more flavourful pizza experience.

Here are some beautiful keto pizzas and garlic fingers made in personal pie pans.
I can make three large pie pan pizzas with this recipe. I usually do two pizzas and one garlic fingers. For the garlic finger recipe click here.
