Like Kevin McAllister, I like a plain cheese pizza.

Don’t get me wrong, hand me a loaded slice and I’m a happy girl, but the classic combination of soft, gooey cheese combined with sweet bites of garlic can’t be beaten in my mind.

I love that this thin crust pizza crust has a simple two ingredients (we’re using a simplified Fat Head dough), making it super fast and easy to whip up. For more topping ideas, check out these keto pizza recipes. Enjoy!

How to Make Nut-Free Keto Pizza

Making nut-free low-carb pizza is easy! Simply swap the 2/3 cup (65 g/ 2.3 oz) of almond flour for 6 tablespoons (48 g/ 1.7 oz) of coconut flour OR 8 tablespoons (57 g/2 oz) of flax meal. If you’re using any of these nut-free options, also add about 4 tablespoons (57 g/ 2 oz) of cream cheese (added to the mozzarella before melting). Alternatively, you can even swap the almond flour for an equal amount of ground sunflower seeds (no cream cheese needed).
