Creating a low-carb pizza on your stovetop by simply using a skillet is a fantastic option when you are wanting a quick meal keto pizza.

I just love how uncomplicated this keto pizza recipe is. It’s no wonder I turn to it often when all I want is a quick satisfying keto meal.

So here’s the thing, who here doesn’t love the flavor of burnt cheese? I am not talking about charred burned but that golden brown crunchy cheese. 

Well, by adding mozzarella cheese onto a hot skillet within minutes it’s producing a cheesy crust that you can then simply add your favorite toppings.

My 5 Minute Keto Pizza Toppings

  • Pesto
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Bacon
  • Italian Sausage
  • Peppers (including jalapeños)
  • Chopped Onions
  • Pepperoni Slices
  • Cream Cheese (trust me it works)
  • Goat Cheese
  • Feta Cheese
  • Fresh Chopped Basil

Can I tell you that I even make my keto 5-minute keto pizza for breakfast? It’s true! Because it’s such an easy-to-customize pizza, I have topped my pizza with toppings that are often enjoyed for breakfast.

Why not first fry an egg and add it to the top of your skillet pizza? Don’t know it till you try it.

No Gluten Keto Skillet Pizza

You may be wondering why I just don’t call up my local pizzeria when craving pizza. Well, unfortunately,  when your body reacts so violently to the gluten in the crust, a cheat is not worth the major setback.

There are just some foods that my lips can’t even taste anymore and sadly pizza is one of them.  So a low-carb keto pizza had to make an appearance to help keep me on course.

But what’s a girl to do when a pizza craving strikes and a high option is no longer viable?

Fathead Dough Pizza

Well, you have a couple of options. For one, you can create an amazing keto pizza out of fathead dough. If you’re not familiar with fathead dough, it is basically a “dough” made out of mozzarella, cream cheese, egg, and a little bit of almond flour.

Some genius in the low carb keto community came up with this marvel and it’s taken the web by storm.

If what you want is a more traditional substitute for pizza, then this is a great option. I have a recipe for my keto free-form pizza that uses the fathead dough.

But let’s be honest. One of the main reasons we turn to pizza is because it’s convenient.  Unfortunately, you can’t yet order a fathead pizza from a local provider.

So if you are after a quick low-carb keto pizza fix, then this keto pizza is exactly what you need.

Although a skillet pizza is kind of a staple in the keto community, not everyone has been properly introduced to it.

I started thinking about those who are just starting their keto journey and in need of easy recipes. I don’t ever want you to feel like we are holding anything back from you.

With that in mind, I invite you into my kitchen to see just how quickly you can make your own skillet pizza.

In case you don’t know, our family came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective. As believers, we live our entire lives supported by God’s grace.

So when the Holy Spirit led us to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.

To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s prompting to we got on the path to real transformation. 

Knowing firsthand the benefits of this decision we have created a closed Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives.  I love how supportive and encouraging this group of believers is. It’s exciting to see how people are transforming their lives by combining this lifestyle with the Christian faith.

I am considering trying Keto. It's just that carbs are so hard to not eat.

Hi Krystol, Keto is definitely more challenging than basic low carb. I would start there and transition. Keto isn't zero carbs but it's challenging adding the macros in check. Thanks for stopping by. Here to cheer you on. ?
