  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • cups shredded mozzarella or 1 cup shredded mozzarella and ½ cup shredded cheddar
  • 1 egg whisked
  • 3 Tbsp sour cream
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 Tbsp vital wheat gluten
  • If you didn't want to use vital wheat gluten you can replace this with the same amount of oat fiber (it is tastier with the wheat gluten though).
  • Vital wheat gluten is a protein so unless your allergic to gluten it is fine for keto.


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Heat cream cheese and shredded cheese in the microwave at 30-second increments (until melted enough to mix together and it pulls away from the sides of the bowl).
  • Add sour cream and mix (this will cool down the cheese before you add the egg).
  • Whisk egg and mix into mixture.
  • Combine almond flour and vital wheat gluten and add to mixture.
  • Mix until well incorporated.
  • Place parchment paper on a round pizza pan.
  • Put the dough in the middle of the round pizza pan and rinse out the bowl that the dough was in.
  • Fill the bowl halfway with water. This is optional, but a great tip to help spread out the dough.
  • Dip your hands in the water and shake off the excess.
  • Spread the dough out over the whole pan with wet hands.
  • Redip your hands as needed and keep spreading the dough until the whole pan is covered.
  • Make sure there are no holes and it is pretty even.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Brush the crust with garlic butter (this is optional, but I think it adds a great taste to the crust).
  • Add toppings of your choice and put the pizza back in the oven until toppings are heated up and the cheese is melted.
  • This will usually only take a couple of minutes.
  • Note: This crust makes one round pizza pan. Feel free to double the recipe to make 2 pans or use a cookie sheet and it makes a sheet pizza.
