You need to control your diabetes and lose weight but want to eat pizza, even though you know they contain a lot of carbs. Today, let’s learn how to make a delicious non-starch keto pizza and lose weight.
The Keto (Ketogenic diet) pizza needs to be rich in fat, protein and low in carbohydrates. Therefore, the pizza recipe below does not use traditional pizza powders, such as flour, which is rich in gluten and carbohydrates. Instead, the Keto cake recipe uses almond flour or coconut flour – two types of flour that are gluten-free and low in carbohydrates. The almond dough that makes the pizza base tastes like a traditional cake crust. Meanwhile, coconut flour has a sweet taste, characteristic coconut flavor and is easier to absorb.

- 225g chopped mozzarella cheese

2. How to make Keto Pizza
Step 1: Make the cake base
In a bowl, mix 225 grams of chopped mozzarella cheese and 28 grams cream cheese. Put the bowl into microwave for 90 seconds on medium or high heat for cheese to melt.
Then take the bowl out of the microwave, mix well, add ¾ bowl of almond flour (or ⅓ bowl of coconut flour), 1 egg, stir well.
Put 1 tablespoon of olive oil on the hand to knead the cake, knead until the mixture is mixed, smooth, then round. Place the dough on the parchment paper, then roll or press it into a rounded shape.
You put the cake base on parchment paper, put in the oven, bake at 204 degrees C for 8 minutes. Then take out the cake base.
Step 2: Make a topping for the cake
Prepare a small pan, put in minced garlic, 1 bowl of Parmesan cheese, ½ bowl of heavy cream, ½ bowl of chopped mozzarella cheese. Heat the mixture under low heat, stirring your hands for about 3 minutes until it thickens.
Put the base of the cake on the table and let the mixture in the pan on the surface of the cake, so that it fits inside to avoid spilling. Add broccoli and shredded cheese. Then, you put the cake in the oven at a temperature of 200 degrees C for 5-7 minutes. At this time, the cake turns dark golden brown and the cheese on top has melted.
