A 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.

If you’ve been grinding up your flax seeds for many of the recipes I’ve shared above, or you’re thinking of doing the same for this pizza, the texture of Bob’s Red Mill Flaxseed Meal is on point to what you’d create at home. It’s roughly ground, so perfect as a replacement for any of your back to school treats, lunches, and quick dinners.
Okay, to the recipe!
- 1½ cups (192 g) Bob’s Red Mill Whole Ground Flaxseed Meal
- 2 teaspoons Bob’s Red Mill Baking Soda
- 2 teaspoons erythritol or monk fruit sweetener
- 1 teaspoon grey sea salt
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon dried basil leaves
- 1 large egg
- 3 tablespoon avocado oil
- 2 tablespoons hot water
- 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
- Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, combine the flaxseed meal, baking soda, sweetener, salt, oregano, garlic powder, and basil leaves. Mix with a spoon.
- Add the egg, avocado oil and hot water. Mix until incorporated and can be rolled into a ball easily.
- 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.
- Transfer the crust to the preheated oven and cook for 15 minutes, or until lightly golden on the edges.
- While the crust is cooking, prepare the pizza sauce by combining the curry paste and tomato paste in a small bowl.
- Remove the crust from the oven, spread the sauce over top, followed by the sliced bell peppers, sliced onion, sliced salami, and nutritional yeast.
- Transfer back to the oven and cook for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until toppings are heated through.
- Remove from the oven and allow the pizza to sit for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
