Keto Sheet Pan Pizza


Hi everyone – It’s Jack. For a while now, I’ve been testing out some different low-carb Keto Sheet Pan Pizza recipes.  A good friend of ours started eating a keto diet a couple of years ago to help with migraines, so we always try to serve foods that he can enjoy when he and his family come to visit us.
More recently, I’ve been eating lower-carb too, to help lower my blood sugar and the number on our scale. Last week, we shared this other keto recipe – and wow – a lot of you checked out that recipe! So I figured I’d share this Keto Sheet Pan Pizza with you too. (And please let us know…would you like to see some more keto recipes here on A Family Feast?)

My goal here was to come up with an original, easy keto pizza dough that was high in fat, low in carbs, and moderate in protein — which are the ideal nutritional macros for a keto recipe.
I read through dozens of keto pizza dough recipes, some using almond flour as the base (known as ‘fathead’ pizza), some using raw, ground chicken as the base, while others used cooked chicken as the base of the pizza crust. They all seemed good, but all suffered from a similar issue in that the amount of fat included was low and really didn’t fit the recommended keto recipe proportions.
I tested a few ideas, then created a Keto Sheet Pan Pizza recipe that uses sweet Italian sausage meat as the base, with almond and coconut flours to bind it together.
Not only is this Keto Sheet Pan Pizza really delicious, it checks all of the keto boxes along the way.

How do you make Keto Sheet Pan Pizza?

To create the pizza crust, I combined uncooked sweet Italian sausage, cream cheese, almond and coconut flours, as well as shredded mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, and eggs. I pressed the crust mixture into the bottom of a 13×9-inch quarter sheet pan, creating a edge of crust around the sides of the pan. I baked the crust just long enough to firm it up.
While the crust baked, I sautéed sliced bell peppers and onions, baby spinach, and garlic.
Finally, I spread some of our homemade pizza sauce over the baked crust, topped that with the sautéed vegetables, and added lots of cheese on top.
After one more round in the oven, our Keto Sheet Pan Pizza came out hot and melty, and absolutely delicious!

Even if you aren’t eating keto, or low-carb these days, you’ll love this Keto Sheet Pan Pizza!

Can I use ground beef or ground chicken for crust, instead of sausage?

We’ve been asked this question several times since we originally posted this recipe, and here’s our answer:
We haven’t tried doing so ourselves, but in theory it should work – although the texture won’t be the same.  The sausage has a lot more flavor and fat than either ground beef or chicken, so you should select a ground beef/chicken with a higher fat content if possible, and you should add more seasonings as well. If you’ve tried this swap, please let a comment and let us know how it came out!

Ingredients

Dough
½ pound sweet Italian sausage, removed from casings
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1 cup almond flour
¼ cup coconut flour
1 ½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese
¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 whole large eggs
Toppings
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, sliced
1 medium Bell pepper sliced, (any bell pepper, green, red, yellow or orange)
8 ounces baby spinach
2 tablespoons fresh garlic passed through a garlic press
½ cup pizza sauce (leave out the sugar)
½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a medium bowl mix uncooked sausage meat, cream cheese, almond flour, coconut flour, 1 ½ cups mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese and eggs.
Spray a quarter sheet pan (13×9-inch) with kitchen pan spray.
Press the mixture into the pan making an even edge all the way around.
NOTE>…If mixture is not cold, refrigerate the filled pan for 30 minutes to firm up the crust before baking.
Bake 12 minutes, turning pan half way through baking.
While crust is baking, in a medium skillet with the olive oil over medium heat, saute onions and peppers for ten minutes until slightly soft. Add spinach and cook one minute to wilt.
Add garlic and remove from heat.
When crust comes out of oven, spread pizza sauce on bottom, top with cooked vegetables from pan, sprinkle on cheddar and mozzarella and bake for about 25 minutes, or until browned and melty. Place under the broiler for a minute if you desire it to be more browned.
Cut into eight portions and serve.
