No Dough & Keto Friendly
Confession: I love PIZZA. Second Confession: I’ve done away with grain and sugar in my diet, and gone to a more keto (genic) type diet , (specifically NSNG ®,) that Dr. David Perlmutter recommends in his book Grain Brain. Bigger Confession: Oh how I wanted to cheat! Until I found that I could make this Keto Friendly Gluten Free Pizza!
In Italy, Pizza is generally a seasoned flatbread, topped with olive oil, maybe a few fresh ingredients like basil, tomatoes and of course Mozzarella di Buffalo. Not at all what we’ve come to know in America. Deep Dish, Cheesey, full of meats and goodies.
This recipe takes a cue from the Pizza of Italy. We used fresh cheeses, olive oil and coconut oil, spiniach, artichoke hearts, basil, black olives and sundried tomatoes. Simple ingredients, and fresh toppings, meld to make the best mid-week dinner ever. (I’ve included some in process images so you can see how this all came together).Print
No Dough Pizza Crust
- 1 8 oz Package Full Fat Cream Cheese at room temperature
- 2 Whole Eggs
- 1/4 tsp Coarse Ground Black Pepper
- 1 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1/4 cup Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese
- Paprika for Sprinkling
- Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees
- Lightly spray a 9×13 baking pan with Coconut Oil.
- Using your mixer and flat beater, mix together the Cream Cheese, Eggs, Pepper, Garlic Powder and Parmesan Cheese until combined.
- Using an angled spatula, spread onto the baking pan, edge to edge.
- Sprinkle lightly with paprika.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes or until crust is a golden brown. (It will puff up slightly but flatten as it cools)
- Allow To Cool for 10-15 minutes.
To Top The Crust
- Spread Pizza Sauce on to the crust with an angled spatula or kitchen brush.
- Top with your favorite toppings and add Shredded Mozzarella Cheese to the top.
- Sprinkle lightly with additional garlic powder
- Drizzle lightly with Extra Virgin Olive Oil (optional)
- Pop Back into the oven for 8-10 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and melted

The ‘crust’ will shrink from the sides, rise and bubble up a bit but will settle as it cools.Print
White Sauce For Pizza
A delicate Alfredo like white sauce, perfect for Pizza
- 1 Tablespoon Almond Flour
- 1 Tablespoon Salted Butter
- 1 Pint of Heavy Cream
- 2 Cups of Shredded/shaved parmesan & romano mix
- Sea Salt and Course pepper for taste
- In a medium pan over medium heat, add butter and melt.
- Add in flour to create your rue for the base of the creamy alfredo sauce
- With a whisk, slowly add in heavy cream. (Keep the whisk moving so you don’t create any lumps.)
- Allow cream mixture to heat slowly, and then add in your cheese.
- Slowly mix with whisk. (The whisking action will help the cheese blend into the cream and create a super velvety texture.)
- Then add in your salt and pepper. (I like a lot of pepper, so I used 1 teaspoon in mine.)
- Continue slowly whisking until your cheese mixture thickens. This will take about 5ish minutes, from the moment you add the cheese into the heavy cream.
- Once you see your first bubbles starting to boil, while you are whisking, you alfredo sauce is done!
- Allow 15 to 20 minutes to cool before using on your pizza! Enjoy!

Top your ‘crust’ with your favorite ingredients, we chose a light vegetable combination. So fresh and delicious. You won’t order out after this one!

I don’t need gluten free pizza dough, but it’s always good to have a great recipe for it on hand in case I need it for one of my friend. Thanks for sharing.

Im just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all the talent, thought and creativity that went into the creation of your site, not to mention the great recipes. I am a retired archictect living in the Northwest, originally from New England. I have just finished my third cookbook starting with trying to read my collection of hand written recipes that I have been putting together since the mid seventies. Having said this, I am well aware of how much time it takes to do what you do. I have never been impressed enough to take the time to write to anyone and I just wanted to say congratulations on your achievements and keep those recipes coming.
Thank you Jon!!! Your kind words mean everything!

Been looking for a healthy way to keep eating pizza, thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Excited to try it!
this is the most delish!
This is interesting, but a lot of dairy!
Unless you’re dairy sensitive, its actually not noticeable. Its not vegan but keto and gf.
This one looks good, but I like more veggies. I make a killer cauliflower crust pizza.
Those boonanas on the side of your post are sooo cute!
I, too, love pizza and this recipe is definitely a winner. I don’t need to be gluten/grain-free but prefer to eat a wide variety of foods without concentrating on any one type.

CREAM CHEESE PIZZA DOUGH??!!? My love of cream cheese was just taken to a whole new level. I don’t even need to have it be GF I just love that it’s cream cheese!
Mel White says
I LOVE this idea and my housemate who is GF will love it too — only one question. I have lost 71 lbs and plan to keep going, and part of what I do is track my food on myfitnesspal — so I need nutrition info for what I eat. Do you have some for the dough and the sauce? THANK YOU!

I have made this many times as I am on low carb, no sugar diet. I have found adding a 1/4 cup of raw almond flour to this helps it to crisp up a bit. I also cook it about 18 minutes. Try it! Thank you for this recipe. I can eat PIZZA AGAIN!
