Keto Pizza

A keto-friendly pizza that satisfies everyone who takes a slice of this pizza. If you are looking for easy keto-approved recipes give this a try. My fathead pizza will truly be a guiltless recipe to try. 

Grilled Chicken Pizza

First, let me start by apologizing for the quality of the photos in this post. This was a spur of the moment and I really really wanted to document and share this with you!  Second- no I am not a healthy living, keto, gluten-free, or paleo blogger.

However, I do follow the keto way of eating and love to share recipes. I do not feel like I have to be an expert to do this. I am a home chef, I test all recipes (documenting this was a spur of the moment but I have made this recipe plenty of times) and I calculate the nutrition information for you, it is listed below.

This recipe is absolutely amazing, what a fantastic flavor combination! I am so glad I can eat pizza on keto.

We are glad to hear you like it!

How Many Net Carbs In Keto Grilled Chicken Pizza

So, here we go !  A small cheese pizza this size has about 733 calories and 77 grams of carbs (Read details here)

My pizza has 688 calories, and 5 NET carbs!  Now, do not drop when you see the fat amount. The fat is suppose to be high and the calculated amount is for the whole pizza. 54 grams.   27 grams per serving- 2 pieces.   You can easily cut back on this by using light cream cheese and milk instead of half & half.  

But, if you are following the keto way of eating you understand that this fat amount is perfectly ok!

Can I Double This Fathead Pizza Recipe 

You are welcome to make as much or as little of this fathead pizza recipe. If you have a larger family you can easily make a handful of pizzas to slice and serve everyone. This is best when served fresh, so I always recommend making it to serve what you plan to eat.

How To Reheat Leftover Pizza 

What I have found is if you place a leftover slice of pizza in a skillet on the stove and turn it on low and let the pizza slowly reheat it helps keep the crispy texture of the crust. If you do the microwave it will make the crust a bit soggy. Or you could place on a pizza stone and toss in the oven and reheat that way as well. 

A low carb pizza crust that you can pile high with your favorite toppings. This fathead pizza crust is versatile and you can use any of your favorite toppings if you end up wanting to create other flavors. Just make sure you use cooked chicken or other meats when piling on pizza. Since the cook time is so short.

  1. ingredients: 1/2 cup half & half
    do you mean cheese? what cheeses do you suggest?

    • Hi Zenda,

      No , half & half is the cream used. It is a cream/milk combination. Part skim shredded mozzarella is used. You can use whichever cheese you like, it will just alter the nutrition facts.

      Thank you!

  2. Are the nutrition facts including the crust? I know might be a stupid question

    • Hi Brittany,
      Yes , the nutrition facts include the crust.
      Thank you!

  3. Hi -- this looks great and we'll be making it this week. I don't see the type of cheese or amount listed in the ingredients. Can you let us know what you used and how much? Also, will that change the nutrition numbers? Thanks! 🙂

    • Hi Denise
      The nutrition numbers are based on using 1/2 cup shredded part skim mozzarella.
      I apologize that was missed! I have made an edit.
      Thank you so much.

  4. Will try this recipe one of these days.. This one looks delicious..
