Keto Paneer Pizza

Keto Paneer Pizza

This Keto Paneer Pizza has a crispy thin crust, which is low in carbohydrates and is topped with protein-rich foods. Nowadays Keto and Pizza can go hand in hand, but it’s usually a timely process and takes some preparation. Now, you can prepare your pizza and eat it too – in under 5 minutes!

So the fathead crust of this Keto Paneer Pizza clocks in at 14 gms of carbs per pizza, which is 8 gm of net carbs. And trust us, if your appetite is anything like ours, you’ll struggle to eat more than half a pizza in one sitting.

From all the crusts we’ve tried, this would be the one that comes closest to a real pizza. Its main components are almond flour and cheese. Both of which give it the same structure and bite. It really is like a crisp and thin-crust pizza.

Be aware of when you bake your pizza in the oven. If you don’t have one, you can always transfer your pizza crust to a small cookie sheet to broil it on! Our preference is to let the pizza fully cool afterward, otherwise, you have a semi-soft crust that will bend when you pick it up.

Flavour-wise, this is very similar to the old microwavable pizza. The crust is not hard, but more bready and puffy. That being said, it definitely holds up to grabbing a slice and eating it.

Also, The psyllium, bacon fat, and Italian seasoning really combat the eggy taste, and you don’t taste a hint of it at the end.

Tips For The Perfect Fathead Crust For Keto Paneer Pizza

A couple of things to keep in mind when making this.

  • Always let the cheese chill a bit before you add the egg to it, lest you end up with a scrambled egg in the process.
  • Two, always eat once it’s ready – it keeps well but it’s definitely best eaten immediately.
  • And three, if you are a ‘pure vegetarian’, you can prepare this without the egg.
  • Finally, the thinner you fold it out, the ‘crisper’ you can get it. It’s also ideal to use parchment paper on both sides if you’re using a rolling pin. Otherwise, Press out the dough with your hands into the desired shape.
