I’m just going to throw it out there that I hate all things involving flour…and yeast…and waiting.  It might be because I’m a clean freak and flour is messy and I am extremely impatient.  Then you’ve got all of the measuring cups and spoons, and just…ugh.  And don’t get me started on flour not having re-sealable tops.  Seriously!  That is just a hug mess waiting to happen!

I’m not going to lie and say the almond flour in this low carb pizza crust isn’t messy, because it can definitely be messy!  Just not as messy as wheat flour.  And definitely not as time consuming as traditional homemade pizza crust.  I vote we have a movement to get this pizza crust as the new and improved traditional pizza crust.  LOW CARBERS UNITE!


Y’all, this low carb pizza crust is so good.  Like, you don’t even know how good it is.  It’s made of cheese for crying out loud!

I also give a nut free version in this post: Fathead Pizza.

I used this yummy low carb pizza dough to make a Chicken Caesar Salad Pizza!  It was amazing!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

Calories: 439kcal


  • 1 3/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp italian seasoning
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup alfredo sauce , your favorite store bought(I can't re-invent this deliciousness)
  • 4 oz frozen spinach
  • 2 tbsp shredded parmesan
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flake


  • Preheat oven to 400F
  • thaw spinach in a microwave safe bowl, then squeeze the liquid out in a dish towel.
  • Combine mozzarella cheese and almond flour in a microwave safe bowl, add cream cheese
  • Microwave for 1 minute, then stir. If the mixture is not melted and easy to combine, microwave for 30 seconds more.
  • add egg, italian seasoning, and salt. Mix well
  • Place mixture on parchment paper and press flat into a 10 inch circle. You could also roll it out between two pieces of parchment, but I didn't think it was necessary.
  • Place directly on the oven rack and bake for 8-10 minutes or light brown, poke any bubbles that develop with a fork
  • remove the crust and add your toppings, first alfredo sauce, then spinach, parmesan, and finally, sprinkle with red pepper flake
  • Put pizza back in the oven and bake for an additional 8-10 minutes
  • Slice and serve!


My kids are not spinach fans so I make them a separate pizza with just the Alfredo sauce on top.

    An amazing recipe for Alfredo: equal parts heavy cream, parmesan cheese, and butter. Heat in a pan over medium heat stirring frequently until the cheese melts. It is heavenly!

    This looks delicious but am always a little concerned about using almond flour since my daughter has tree nut allergies. Could another flour substitute be used?

      You could use coconut flour. This recipe includes instructions for that

    First time using this dough recipe tonight! I made 1/2 cheese and 1/2 pepperoni pizza for the kids and a Alfredo based pizza with rotisserie chicken and bacon pizza for my wife and I. So delicious!!! Thank you, Jennifer.

    Can coconut flour be used rather than almond flour? I am finding that almond flour is so expensive! This looks delicious, like all your recipes, and I can’t wait to try it.

      I’m pretty sure you can but I would use 1/2 the amount

    Hey. i was putting this information into my fitness pal manually to make sure all the calorie information was correct. I’m coming up with about 328 calories/serving based off 4 servings/recipe. Maybe I’m doing something wrong. Is your recipe supposed to be based off 8 servings? Thanks!! PS I’m totally in love with this pizza crust!

      I’ll double check. The nutrition calculator I was using at the time of this recipe is proving to not be very accurate. I’m glad you like the crust!

    Right on the oven rack? I’m concerned it might drip through. Is skim-milk mozzarella okay? It has less fat thought and is available by kraft with no carbs.

      You would leave it on the parchment paper. I’ll update the post so the instructions are more clear.

      You should be able to use that cheese with no problem. Let me know how it works out!

    Can the pizza dough be frozen?

      • jenniferbanz
      • May 15, 2017

      I’ve never tried it so I’m not sure. What I would suggest is letting the dough cool down after microwaving everything, then wrapping it up in a disc shape. When you want to use it out of the freezer, let it thaw, and warm it in the microwave again so it can be rolled out.

    I cannot seem to find the nutritional info on this, especially the net carb count.

      Hi Karen! I added that info to the post. Thank you for asking!
