Low Carb Deep Dish Pizza
I have had several different low carb pizza options before in the past, but I wanted one that the whole family would love. Pizza is delicious, but let’s be honest, it can always be made better. With my experience in the kitchen I wanted to take some time to create a recipe that I could eat with my kids and we’d all love.
Secrets of Low Carb Pizza
You have to understand that most low carb pizzas are kinda crispy and not deep dish. It took a while to perfect the ultimate low carb pizza. When I finally nailed this Low Carb Deep Dish Pizza, I was one happy mama.
Almond flour – One of my favorite low carb ingredients to use is almond flour. While it can be kind of expensive to buy, I buy it in bulk, so that I get a lower cost per unit. It’s nice to have on hand to be able to make dinners for our large family.
Coconut flour – Another low carb flour that I love to keep on hand is coconut flour. At first I thought it would make foods taste a little coconutty, but it really doesn’t.
Xanthan gum – If you’re going to be making a lot of low carb recipes, then perhaps xanthan gum is exactly what you need to have in your pantry. This product helps to keep ingredients from separating and it is also used as a thickening agent.
The key to this recipe is that you’re going to use lots of ingredients to keep it low carb, but you’re going to top it with lots of yummy veggies. If your family loves pepperoni, then stick with that. If they love other veggies, then go for it. The great thing about pizza is that it’s all so versatile.
How to Freeze Low Carb Deep Dish Pizza
I have a soft spot for deep dish pizza, so when I knew that I could do a low carb version of it, I was super excited. If you want to freeze this pizza or make an extra one to freeze and bake later, all you need to do is have a freezable container. You can choose an extra large freezer bag. You can even buy containers that are the size of pizzas and you can freeze those!
They are good in the freezer for up to six months, plus you can have pizza one night and it’ll be the most amazing thing because you won’t have to cook it, just bake it.
The next time you’re in the mood for something delicious, but want to skip out on the carbs, give this Low Carb Deep Dish Pizza a try!

Feed the whole family with this Low Carb Deep Dish Pizza. It’s delicious and low on the carbs.
For the crust:
- 1 cup almond flour
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour
- 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 ½ teaspoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons water
For the pizza:
- 1 (14 ounce) jar sugar-free pizza sauce
- ¼ to ½ cup diced green bell pepper
- ¼ to ½ cup diced mushrooms
- ½ to ¾ cup diced canadian bacon
- ½ to ¾ cup sliced pepperoni
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 8 to 9 inch springform pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a food processor, pulse together the flours, xanthan gum, baking powder, and seasonings. Add the apple cider vinegar and egg. Pulse again. Slowly add the water and pulse until a dough ball forms. The dough will be sticky.
Remove the dough from the food processor and press into the springform pan using a piece of plastic wrap OR a short glass coated in nonstick cooking spray. Press the dough evenly into the bottom of the pan and up the sides about 1 to 1 ½ inches.
Bake the crust in the prepared oven for 10 minutes or until slightly golden. Remove from oven.
To the crust add a fine layer of mozzarella cheese. Then, layer the vegetables and pour the pizza sauce over the top. Add the canadian bacon and pepperoni and finish with another layer of cheese.
Return to the oven and bake until the cheese has melted and started to brown slightly, about 20 to 25 minutes.
Before serving, run a dull knife around the edge between the crust and the springform pan. Then, release the sides. Cut into wedges and serve.
