Ingredients You Need:

There are two parts to making this white pizza recipe and both require very basic ingredients. If you have a well-stocked keto pantry, you’ll have everything you need.

For the low-carb pizza crust:

Mozzarella cheese: other cheeses may work but mozzarella is the perfect flavor as it pairs well with any toppings you may add on.

Cream cheese: opt for full-fat cream cheese to give a savory, comforting feel to the crust.

Almond flour: make sure to use almond flour and not almond meal. The almond meal won’t blend as well, and the crust will have a chewier texture.

Xanthan gum: a popular staple in any keto diet this helps to bind the ingredients together so that the crust holds.

Baking staples: you’ll also need baking powder, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and an egg for the crust to come together.

For the white pizza toppings:

Olive oil: this is used in addition to the salt, pepper, and garlic to brush on top of the almond flour crust to maximize flavor. Avocado oil would work as well.

3 cheese blend: you’ll need parmesan, ricotta, and mozzarella for the top of the pizza. The result is a creamy, gooey, delicious blend in every bite.

Fresh basil: used to garnish the keto pizza and for a bit of extra flavor. Not necessary but it does bring all the flavors together.

How To Make It:

  1. Add the cream cheese and mozzarella into a bowl and heat in the microwave at intervals until melted.
  2. Add the cheese to the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and knead them until they’re well combined.
  3. Press the pizza dough into a rectangular shape on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  4. Bake until lightly browned.
  5. Meanwhile mix together the olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic.
  6. When the crust is done, brush the oil mixture onto it.
  7. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and then spoon the ricotta on.
  8. Tear the fresh mozzarella apart and layer that onto the pizza.
  9. Place fresh basil over top and bake another 10 minutes until the cheese is melted.
  10. Let cool and serve.

Expert Tips To Make White Pizza:

If you can, soften the cream cheese before making the crust. This way, it melts easier in the microwave and at a similar rate to the mozzarella.

When forming the pizza dough, wet your hands slightly to avoid it sticking and make it easier to spread out.

The white cheese topping will melt when you bake it for those additional few minutes. However, if you love the golden, bubbling look broil for 60-90 seconds at the end.

Make sure to keep a close eye on it though so that the cheese topping doesn’t burn.

Make it in advance: you can make the almond flour crust in advance and store it in the fridge for up to 3 days.

When you need it, remove it from the fridge and let it settle to room temperature before topping it with cheese.

Toppings and Variations:

Though this is a simple, cheese pizza recipe, there are a ton of ways to adapt it to suit your preference. Use some of the ideas below to enjoy new flavors.

Cheese: you can easily sub some blue cheese or feta to the top of the pizza for new flavors.

Protein: adding on some cooked chicken or steak bites helps make this white pizza more filling.

Vegetables: choosing a variety of low-carb vegetables like bell peppers and mushrooms can bring some color and texture to the pizza.

Spice: if you like it hot, adding a dash of red pepper flakes or hot sauce drizzled on top can step up the heat.

Storing Leftovers:

If you have leftover white pizza, you can store it in an airtight container in the fridge.

Let it cool fully first and then separate the slices between sheets of parchment paper so that it doesn’t stick together.

To reheat the keto pizza, heat it briefly in the microwave or on low in the oven until warmed through. The oven will make the crust firm up similar to when it was initially baked.
