I think that pizza-love is pretty universal. And I would venture a guess that you’ve probably attended one of those work/birthday/game night functions when you’ve had to forgo the decedent treat. That cheese-oozing, sauced-up, crusty deliciousness with its most recognizable aroma… oh! The pizza!
We all have our favorite pizza style – thin crust, thick crust, sweet, savory, cheese-only, sauce only… and everything in between. Well, we’re bringing pizza back! I’ve found a super easy way to make a pizza dough that clocks in at only 3 net carbs per ENTIRE pie. The best part? These little beauties boast over 9 grams of fiber – I know I’m not the only one hoping to work some fiber into their keto diet!
This low-carb pizza dough was a complete game-changer for me, and you will be able to customize your pie in whichever way you see fit. Ground psyllium husk adds fiber and contributes to the elasticity of the crust. The recipe below is for the crust only, but I’ve included some links below for my other recipes that utilize this versatile dough.
The dough recipe below makes three personal pizza pies at 3 net carbs each.
3/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup whole psyllium husk powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 cup room temperature water
1. Preheat oven to 430 F/220 C
2. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients (almond flour, psyllium husk powder, baking powder, salt). Stir by hand to combine.
3. Add vinegar and warm water to the dry mixture and continue stirring.
4. The mixture will start off very loose. Continue stirring for about 1 minute or until dough has thickened.
5. Once mixture reaches a dough consistency, form a large ball with your hands and separate it into three equal pieces. Each piece will be used for one pizza.
6. Roll each piece of dough flat into an 8×8 inch disk. If the dough sticks, sandwich it between two pieces of parchment paper. If you don’t have a rolling pin, you can easily flatten the dough by hand.
7. Before adding toppings, bake pizza crusts in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
8. Remove pizzas from oven and add sauces and toppings.
9. Bake dressed-up pizzas for 15 more minutes in the oven (or until you think they look just right).
10. Enjoy 😊
Net Carbs are carbohydrates that are absorbed by the body. Net Carbs are calculated by subtracting Dietary Fiber from Total Carbohydrates.
