Keto friendly pizza

Just before my wedding I was on a really enjoyable Keto diet that I will very likely go back to before our honeymoon to lose a few more pounds. It’s not a lifestyle I’d like to do longer than a month or so but it is incredibly effective at removing any indulgences you’ve done.

One of the recipes I found whilst doing this is Keto pizza so I have to share.

The copy cat base is the standard fat head dough that’s really popular on the internet. Effectively you melt in a microwaveable bowl some grated cheddar cheese and cream cheese (Philadelphia)until soft and you can mix together. You then add almond or soy flour with a pinch of salt and pepper. You can also add some bread yeast if you want more rise.

Mix into dough and use a spatula as it can get really sticky. Oil a baking sheet (baking parchment is also really helpful as it’s very sticky dough) and press the dough on it. Bake for about 10 minutes at 200 degrees c.

In the meantime make up some fresh toppings by mixing some canned fresh tomatoes with a pinch of sweetener and whatever spices you like. You can also make it a bit sweeter by adding a dash of sugar free tomato ketchup. I love a bit of oregano so I always add a bit of that to the dough and sprinkle after.I simmer this on a low heat for about 10 minutes so it thickens up.

Once the dough is ready coat in tomato sauce and add whatever cheeses you like. I love a mix of mozzarella and Parmesan. This time i added some chopped veggies what I had left which were some peppers; mushrooms and a little red onion.

Bake for another 10 minutes until golden brown.

This is my sugar free ketchup if you are interested:
