Keto Fathead Pizza with Chorizo and Salsa

“Pizza crust made out of cheese results in a delicious, crispy crust. As far as the toppings go, add as many or as little as you want. What’s best of all, it’s keto!”

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 1 egg, beaten, at room temperature
  • cooking spray
  • Topping:
  • 2 ounces Mexican chorizo, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1 tablespoon diced onion
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves for garnish

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl and heat until melted, about 1 1/2 minutes. Stir well. Add almond flour, salt, oregano, garlic powder, and black pepper. Use your hands to combine dough. Once combined, add beaten egg and stir until well incorporated.
  3. Spray 2 large pieces of parchment paper with non-stick spray. Place dough on one piece of parchment paper and cover with the second piece. Using your hands or a rolling pin, flatten pizza dough to a 10-inch round. Remove top parchment paper and place bottom piece of parchment paper with flattened pizza dough onto a baking sheet. Pierce all of the pizza dough with a fork to prevent the dough from rising.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until bottom starts to brown, 12 to 17 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile place chorizo in a microwave-safe bowl and cover with a paper towel. Microwave in three 1-minute increments, uncovering and stirring meat well after each.
  6. Remove pizza crust from oven and top with 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, chorizo, salsa, and onion. Bake until cheese is melted, 4 to 6 minutes more. Garnish with cilantro leaves.
