Deep Dish Keto Pizza Recipe

This delicious deep dish keto pizza recipe is made in a spring form pan!

Anyone up for a deep dish keto pizza recipe?

Fire up your ovens, because this easy to make, DELICIOUS recipe for deep dish keto pizza features unflavored protein powder in the crust!

The resulting texture is more like a quiche than a traditional pizza, but you’re going to love the pepperoni pizza taste. Let’s go!

Mix the crust ingredients right in your blender!

Simply pour the crust mixture into a 12 inch cast iron skillet, a casserole dish, or even a 10 inch spring form pan, like I used.

This crust uses protein powder instead of flour! What a genius low carb idea!

I used this 100% Whey Protein Powder from GNC, but you can use your favorite brand. Just make sure it’s unflavored, as a vanilla flavored pizza may not be as appetizing! 😉

Recipe Notes

Pepperoni pizza is always a crowd pleaser in my house, but definitely switch up the toppings to what your family loves! Next time, I’d like to try a sausage and veggie topping. So YUM 😋

    This was very satisfying, my husband has been craving pizza and it hit the spot! I used quest protein powder multi-purpose mix (it only has 1 carb per scoop). I did use 1/4 of the batter to make 4 breadsticks and used a rectangle jelly roll pan to have a thinner crust. Great recipe!

    I made a different low carb deep dish pizza this weekend but wanted to add a hint from that recipe. People mentioned that the low carb crust could be a little “eggy” at first but better as leftovers. The recipe was updated to put the crust in the freezer (after it had cooled from baking) until it was completely cold == you could even bake it the day before. Then add your toppings and bake. We found it to be pretty close to the Chicago Style pizza we love.
