Keto Basic Zucchini Pizza Crust

For a pizza crust that is more Keto-friendly than low carb crusts made with doughs, try this basic zucchini pizza crust recipe. This Keto pizza crust is made with Keto-friendly zucchini mixed with egg and parmesan cheese. That’s all you need for a thin-crust pizza that is flexible and sturdy enough to hold pizza toppings. You’ll find that this recipe is only for the crust. You can read further into this introduction for some pizza topping ideas. Please let other users know in the comments what pizza topping combinations you made on your Keto zucchini crust pizza. Remember to include any additional ingredients you use in your food log to accurately record your macros.

Keto Pizza Topping Ideas

This recipe only makes the zucchini pizza crust base. After baking, you can add your favorite pizza toppings and continue baking in your oven. Since this is a thin-crust pizza, make sure your toppings are sliced thin as well. The finer your toppings are sliced, the more you can include on your Keto pizza. For a vegetarian pizza, top the zucchini crust with sliced bell peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, olives, spinach, and fresh herbs. If you want to include an animal protein, you can use finely shredded chicken or pork. If you want to add ground beef or ground Italian sausage, make sure you cook the ground meat into fine crumbles so they don’t weight down the crust or release too much grease.

Adding More Flavor To Your Keto Pizza Crust

In Step 2 of this Keto pizza recipe, you’re instructed to stir in salt and pepper with the other ingredients. At this point, you could include other spices that will flavor your zucchini pizza crust to your liking. Try mixing in dried oregano, dried basil, onion powder, and garlic powder to your zucchini crust for amplified flavor. Another way to add extra flavor to your pizza is with a sauce. You could use 1-2 tablespoons of marinara sauce for a low-carb option. For a more Keto-friendly pizza sauce, try spreading Alfredo Sauce or Pesto Sauce across your zucchini pizza crust. Carb Manager has recipes available for both these sauces, which you can make at home. However, most pre-made sauces from the grocery store are Keto-friendly as well. Just be sure to check the nutrition label for any added sugar you want to avoid.

Recipe Steps

1 h 10 min

  • Step 1

    Preheat an oven to 300 degrees. Use a vegetable grater to shred a large zucchini into thick shreds. The shredded zucchini should equal the weight listed in the ingredients. Spread the zucchini shreds across a sheet tray lined with parchment paper. Cook the tray in your oven for 30 minutes. You can toss the shreds on the tray after 20 minutes to ensure even cooking.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    After 30 minutes in the oven, the zucchini shreds should be only slightly moist and some will be lightly golden brown. Let the zucchini cool for 5 minutes until it is cool enough to handle. Toss the zucchini shreds in a mixing bowl with the egg, salt, pepper, and shredded parmesan. Use a spatula to fold the ingredients over until you have a consistent zucchini mixture. Then, turn your oven’s temperature up to 350 degrees.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Line your sheet tray with a new piece of parchment paper. Use your spatula to arrange the zucchini mixture on the sheet tray into a circle. The original recipe here should make a 10” thin-crust pizza. Bake the zucchini crust for 22-25 minutes, until the crust has a golden brown edge and you can see the egg and parmesan completely cooked through. You can then cool this finished crust and use it for “leftover” cold pizza recipes. If you want to bake a hot pizza, arrange your sauce and toppings on the finished zucchini crust pizza. Bake the pizza at 350 degrees until you see your toppings cooked and browned and any cheese bubbled and browned as well.
