Thai Salami Pizza with Flaxseed Crust (keto, paleo, low-carb + dairy-free)

Thai Salami Pizza with Flaxseed Crust #keto #lowcarb #highfat #theketodietA perfectly cooked low-carb pizza crust. And there’s no cauliflower in it! The end result is crispy, like your favorite thin crust, and holds up well if you love leftover pizza.

I never got into the cauliflower pizza crust thing. I tried it once, it was horrible, and never did it again. So, I haven’t really had a low-carb pizza… ever. Seems a shame.

Growing up, my parents loved transforming Friday’s into pizza days. The family would gather around the table stacked with different pizza toppings and we would assemble our very own pizzas, throw them in the oven for a couple of minutes, and then chow down. It was an awesome activity to wind down the busy school week and get set for the relaxing weekend ahead.

Now that school is just around the corner (I know, I’m sorry… I said it!) I thought sharing a keto pizza crust with you was in order. I know how busy school days can be, mixed up with work, after school activities, homework, etc. that a pizza night may be exactly what your family needs. It’s easy, interactive, and fun for the whole crew.

Also, if you have us much Bob’s Red Mill Flaxseed Meal in your pantry as I do, you need this recipe in your life to help cut down your stash. Before you get more, of course.

The back to school season doesn’t directly affect us much. BUT I imagine back to school time is very similar to back to book tour time (the third leg of the book tour starts August 28, 2017), where every easy recipe that’s packable and made-ahead(able) is fair game.

This low-carb pizza! I’ve never been one for cauliflower crust, but this is a keto pizza crust I can get behind. Made with simple ingredients, it’s a simple and easy ketogenic pizza recipe you can rely on for any pizza you choose to create. MACROS 59% fat, 25% carb, 16% protein. Made in partnership with Bob’s Red Mill.
Ingredients
Crust
Thai Salami Pizza Toppings
  • ¼ cup (65 g) red curry paste
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 roasted red bell peppers, sliced
  • ¼ small red onion, sliced
  • 5½ oz (155 g) smoked paprika salami, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons Bob’s Red Mill Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flaxseed meal, baking soda, sweetener, salt, oregano, garlic powder, and basil leaves. Mix with a spoon.
  3. Add the egg, avocado oil and hot water. Mix until incorporated and can be rolled into a ball easily.
  4. Transfer the low-carb pizza dough ball to the parchment paper lined baking sheet. Press the dough with your fingers to shape into a 12-inch (30.5 cm) round pizza crust at ¼-inch (6 mm) thick.
  5. Transfer the crust to the preheated oven and cook for 15 minutes, or until lightly golden on the edges.
  6. While the crust is cooking, prepare the pizza sauce by combining the curry paste and tomato paste in a small bowl.
  7. Remove the crust from the oven, spread the sauce over top, followed by the sliced bell peppers, sliced onion, sliced salami, and nutritional yeast.
  8. Transfer back to the oven and cook for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until toppings are heated through.
  9. Remove from the oven and allow the pizza to sit for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
Notes
Nutrition information is based on just the crust. I did this because I’m assuming you’ll be adding your own toppings. And, assume that you’ll be adding high-fat items to the top of this crust which will change the macros significantly. Also, note the high fiber amount in this recipe and net carbs associated. It’s a win!

  1. Such a great recipe! Made last night, and this is absolutely a new favorite, especially for days when my fiber intake is lacking. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I live in Brazil, so many of your recipes I have very hard time to follow. What is in whole ground flaxseed meal? Just grounded flax seed? any idea what kind of think can I replace with?

    Tks!

    • Yep, it’s just ground flaxseed. You could try ground chia seed, although, I haven’t tried it myself. Please let us know how it goes if you try something different!

    • Nutiritional yeast is not yeast. It is a substitute for cheese and tastes almost cheese-like!

    • Nutritional yeast is different than yeast. It’s a deactivated yeast, sold as flakes or powder. It has a strong flavor that is described as cheesy, so it’s good as a cheese substitute of sorts. Hope that helps!

  3. I was under the impression that you weren’t supposed to heat flax above 180 degrees because it changes the the nutritional profile, specifically the omegas of the product

  4. Thanks for the recipe! Do you think a gelatin egg could work in place of the egg?

    • I haven’t tried it with this recipe, but I imagine it would. Please let us know how it goes if you try it!

  5. This looks good and will try. I have been using Carb Quick for my crust and pancakes and getting along fine. Love your sight even though I am a man, love your approach to eating. It has to be quick and easy for me. My wife says she will not go to Keto but eats everything I cook.

    • Thanks, Eugene! Too funny…pretty soon she’ll be totally keto and won’t even realize it ;)
