Keto Cheeseburger Pizza
Keto cheeseburger pizza is a fun dinner your family will love.
The crust for this pizza is made with FatHead dough. If you haven't tried FatHead crust yet, you have been missing out. It requires just a few ingredients and makes a delicious dough!
Ingredients you need
To make a keto fat head dough pizza crust, you will need four simple ingredients. All the quantities and instructions are in the recipe card at the end of this post.
Shredded mozzarella - grated mozzarella
Almond flour - almond meal or ground almonds. There is a conversion in the recipe card below if you wish to use coconut flour instead of almond flour.
Cream cheese - use full fat, not light, lite, or spreadable cream cheese.
Egg - fresh is best. Can be omitted if you have an egg allergy.
Making the Crust
To get started on your pizza you will need to make one crust using FatHead dough.
FatHead dough is made by melting mozzarella cheese, almond flour, and few other ingredients together in the microwave to make a low-carb dough.
The dough is then rolled out into the shape of a pizza and cooked in the oven for 12-15 minutes. You can find the full direction for making a FatHead pizza crust in this How To Make Fat Head Pizza post.
The sauce used in this pizza is really what makes the pizza so tasty. The sauce is designed to taste similar to the sauce found in a Big Mac from McDonald's, but without all the added sugar and preservatives. It adds a punch of flavour, and gives it that authentic cheeseburger taste.
While your crust is cooking, mix together your sauce and prepare your toppings.
This sauce tastes better the longer it sits. You want the sauce to have time to rest and all the flavours to blend together, so make sure you mix the sauce together first.
Simply mix all the sauce ingredients together in a bowl and set it to the side while you prepare your toppings.
The sauce has a mayonnaise base. I will usually use my magic 1-minute mayonnaise recipe to make the Big Mac sauce, but if you are using a store-bought mayonnaise look for a mayo made with olive or avocado oil that is keto-friendly.
Keeping that tasty Big Mac in mind, it's time to prepare the toppings.
If you don't already have browned ground beef already in your refrigerator or freezer, you will need to brown some ground beef to sprinkle over the pizza.
This pizza is the perfect way to use excess or leftover ground beef from a previous dinner since it doesn't require a lot of ground beef.
Next, you will want to finely chop about 4 leaves of romaine lettuce and then slice ½ a tomato, ¼ red onion, and 3-4 dill gherkin pickles.
How to reduce the carbs in your keto pizza
Feel free to leave off any of the toppings you don't like. Leaving off toppings like onions or tomatoes will bring the net carb count down even lower. The carbs in vegetables can make a dramatic difference in the carb count.
For example, these are just some popular variations:
- ¼ cup Romaine lettuce = 0.4g Net carbs
- 2 slices tomato = 1 g Net carbs
- 1 dill gherkin pickle = 1 g Net carbs
- 2 slices red onion = 1.3 Net carbs
Assembling Your Keto Cheeseburger Pizza
Now that all the parts of your pizza are prepped it's time to assemble your pizza. Start by spreading ¾ of the sauce over your crust.
Then add your cooked ground beef, red onions, and cover with shredded cheese. Place the pizza back into your warm oven for just long enough to melt the cheese.
Once the cheese is melted cover the pizza with lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles. Then drizzle the remaining sauce over the top of your pizza. If your sauce is too thick to drizzle you can thin the sauce by mixing in 1-2 spoonfuls of water.
Finally, slice the pizza and serve while it is still warm. You can also add the toppings after slicing the pizza so that your family can add their own toppings.
