My Favorite Keto Pizza Toppings
As long as they are keto and low carb, the sky is the limit!
- Veggies – spinach, zucchini, mushrooms, sliced onions, artichoke hearts, steamed broccoli or cauliflower, sliced olives, sundried tomatoes.
- Meat – pepperoni, ham, ground beef, bacon or sausage are all delicious topping ideas!
- Cheese – you can choose a variety of cheeses to match your toppings. Use feta with spinach, try Monterey jack with ground beef, or provolone with pepperoni!
- Sauce – marinara or alfredo sauce would be delicious, while a simple Italian dressing works well in a pinch.
- Fresh herbs and seasonings – add fresh garlic, red, white or green onions, as well as herbs such as basil and parsley for a unique pizza experience.
Making Sure Your Pizza Crust Stays Crispy
Remove the moisture! For the best keto pizza crust, squeeze out as much moisture as you can from the ground chicken. When choosing toppings, use ones that do not contain a lot of moisture or cook them prior and lay on paper towel to absorb any moisture.
Purchase low fat cheese! Less fat = less chance of your crust becoming soggy!
Soak it up! When you remove the crust from the oven the first time, soak up any oil and moisture that will come from the cheese and chicken. This will help keep your pizza crust nice and crisp!
Can I Reheat Keto Chicken Pizza Crust?
The oven or toaster oven is the best way to keep this keto pizza base nice and crisp. But reheating in the microwave will work too. Just lay the pizza on a paper towel to absorb any grease or liquid.
