Ingredients for Keto Pizza Recipe :

  • Cream cheese
  • Pepperoni
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Eggs
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Tomato sauce – sugar-free preferred
  • Tomato paste
  • Dried basil
  • Dried oregano
  • Garlic powder
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Sea salt and black pepper

How to Make Keto Pepperoni pizza :

Step One:

Combine cream cheese, eggs, Parmesan cheese, 1 teaspoon basil and oregano, and ½ teaspoon garlic powder in a medium-sized bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and whisk until mixture is completely blended and smooth.

Step Two:

Spread the cream cheese mixture onto the prepared baking sheet into the desired shape and thickness. Place the crust in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until slightly puffed and golden brown. Check halfway through cooking time to ensure the crust bakes evenly and does not become too brown.

Step Three:

In the meantime, whisk the tomato paste, tomato sauce, the remaining dried herbs, and the garlic powder in a small bowl. Lightly season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine. Set aside.

Step Four:

Remove the pizza base from the oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes before topping with tomato sauce, sliced pepperoni, and shredded Mozzarella cheese. Return pizza to oven and bake for another 10 minutes, or just until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from oven and garnish with fresh basil.
