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 springform 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!

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 YUMMY!

    Looking forward to trying this one out!

    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!

      Thanks so much for sharing!

    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.

    Unfortunately this recipe does not specify a springform pan size. I assumed (incorrectly) that it would be 8″. I ended up with more of a souffle than a pizza base, and it did not cook in the specified time. So-be forewarned. Use a bigger pan.

      Oh bummer! SO sorry for any confusion. This recipe used a 10-inch springform pan. That is listed above, just below the image that includes the blender. You could also use a 12-inch cast iron skillet or a casserole dish. Hoping that helps!

    Hello,
    sorry for my question: What is “half and half”?
    The translator can’t find the answer in german.
    The pizza looks super!
    Greetings from Germany

      half and half is a product that’s sold in a milk carton here – that’s half heavy cream and half whole milk. Hope that helps!

      • Anke

        Thank you so much for your answer. It helps me a lot 🌞

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome! Thanks for sharing with us, Janell! Enjoy!

    Made this tonight in my cast iron skillet-so yummy!! Used my food processor instead of a blender-super easy to make! One of our favorite Keto meals so far-paired it with squash chips from the air fryer! Thanks so much!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yum!! Thx for sharing 👍

    Hi! What would be an alternative to use if I don’t have unflavored whey protein please?
