Keto Pizza with Taco Sauce – Amazing

Keto Pizza




  • 1¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • ¾ cup blanched almond flour
  • ⅛ teaspoon fine sea salt

Spicy tomato sauce:

  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Swerve confectioners’-style sweetener or equivalent amount of liquid or powdered sweetener
  • 1½ teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano


  • ¼ pound ground beef
  • ½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped onions

For garnish:

  • ¼ cup sliced black olives
  • ¼ cup shredded lettuce
  • ¼ cup sliced cherry tomatoes
  • Drizzle of crème fraîche or sour cream thinned slightly with water
  • Fresh cilantro (optional)


  • Place a pizza stone in the cold oven, then turn the oven on to 425°F. (You can use a baking sheet, but a pizza stone will bake the bottom better.)
  • To make the crust, put the mozzarella and butter in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 1 to 2 minutes, until the cheese is entirely melted.
  • Stir well.
  • Add the beaten egg and, using a hand mixer, combine well.
  • Add the almond flour and salt and combine well with the mixer.
  • Use your hands and work it like a traditional dough, kneading for about 3 minutes. (Note: If the dough is too sticky, chill it in the refrigerator for an hour or overnight.)
  • Place the dough on a greased piece of parchment paper and pat it out with your hands to form a large circle, about 10 inches in diameter.
  • For easy transferring to the oven, slide the sheet of parchment with the dough circle onto an unrimmed baking sheet or pizza peel.
  • Set aside.
  • To make the spicy tomato sauce, place the tomato sauce, sweetener, and seasonings in a bowl and stir well to combine.
  • To make the meat topping, heat a cast-iron skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the beef and 3 tablespoons of the spicy tomato sauce and cook, stirring to break up the clumps, until the meat is browned and crumbly, about 5 minutes.
  • Set aside.
  • Spread the rest of the spicy tomato sauce over the pizza crust.
  • Sprinkle the cheeses over the tomato sauce and top with the beef and onions.
  • Transfer the pizza to the hot pizza stone in the oven by sliding the parchment and pizza off the baking sheet onto the stone.
  • Bake the pizza until the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove the pizza from the oven and garnish it with the black olives, lettuce, tomatoes, crème fraîche, and cilantro, if desired.



  • Store extras in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Reheat slices on a baking sheet in a preheated 350°F oven for 5 minutes or until warmed through.
