Keto Skillet Jalapeno Popper Pizza
One thing people love is pizza, but some think that they can never have it again while eating keto or low carb because… dough. It is possible to eat it though, I promise! Personally, I love pizza and so does my entire family. We enjoy having pizza and movie nights. With this way of eating you can’t just order the usual from the house of pizza down the road. Too. Many. Carbs. It will kick you right out of ketosis.
This skillet recipe makes our movie nights easy and delicious. Without feeling deprived or having the fear of being kicked out of ketosis. We love all flavors of pizza but one of our favorites include jalapenos and bacon. These combined with cheddar cheese is absolutely mouthwatering. This recipe has become one of our favorites especially on days we are tempted to cheat. This keto skillet jalapeno popper pizza cures our cravings while staying in ketosis.
But how can I eat this pizza and still stay in ketosis?
The not so secret , secret is fathead dough. Fathead dough is a miracle invention. It uses mozzarella as the “gluten” to hold the dough together and give it a slight chew. This is completely keto approved. We use our fathead dough recipe for many things- rolls, desserts and more.
This Keto Skillet Jalapeno Popper Pizza combines two of my favorite things- pizza, and bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers. Think of it as a deconstructed bacon wrapped jalapeno popper on top of a flavorful Fathead Dough crust.
Why does my fathead dough look different than yours?
The main reason for the variation in dough is the flour used. Almond flour comes a few different ways- super fine, blanched and almond meal. The colors of each flour are also different. Super fine being the lightest, meal being the darkest. We typically opt for super fine.
The best part about this is that it is simple to cook. All you need is a skillet. Press the fathead dough in to your skillet as if you are making a deep dish pizza and add your ingredients. You can also make extra dough to either keep in the refrigerator OR pre-make extra crusts.
But, that is enough about that. Let’s get cooking!

- 2 oz cream cheese
- 3/4 cup mozzarella, shredded

- 1/3 cup almond flour
- 2 jalapenos, sliced in rounds

- Preheat the oven to 350.
- In a small bowl, add cream cheese and mozzarella. Microwave on high for 20 seconds at a time until melted.
- Add remaining ingredients to the melted cheese.
- Mix as well as you can. It does get a tad bit odd here, because mozzarella turns to a big glob when melted. It is ok, it will work together.
- Grease 10" skillet, spread dough out evenly. Stick with fork to prevent air bubbles.
- Bake for 10 minutes. Top with cheese, bacon and jalapenos. Continue for another 10 minutes or until crust is golden and set.
