This keto stuffed crust pizza uses my current favourite low carb and gluten-free coconut flour dough and is full of cheesy goodness. The edges of the pizza are full of cheese in every bite!
Enjoy this pizza for a Friday night with a movie or even Game night! You may not want it share it thought, once you have had a slice or two.
The flexible coconut flour pizza dough is wrapped round mozzarella sticks and baked. What topping you want to use is all you!
This is an easy recipe which I've adapted from my coconut flour and pysllium husk powder pizza base.
How to make a keto stuffed crust pizza
This is an easy low carb pizza recipe to make but you must ensure that the mozzarella sticks are covered well. You don't want the cheese crust to ooze out and leave you with a plain pizza.
- Mix the dry ingredients together
- Add the wet and work into a dough. Let the dough cool a bit before you handle it as you don't want to burn your hands!
- Roll out into a circle.
- Cut the mozzarella sticks in half and place inside the pizza base in a circle.
- Fold the pizza base over the cheese sticks.
- Bake the base for 15 minutes
- Add the Marinara sauce and toppings.
- Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and bake.
To keep the circular shape of the stuffed crust bake the pizza in a pie dish or spring form cake tin.
If you are a fan of Fathead dough, this pizza could be adapted with that crust. It's a lot of cheese though!
Cheddar cheese sticks could be used for the crust filling instead of mozzarella.

Had this for supper tonight. Easy to make and tastes great.
Glad you enjoyed it!
Wow, stuffed crust! I can’t wait to try this. Does it need to be baked in a pie plate or tin? Can I simply roll it out and then bake on a cookie sheet? Or will it not hold its shape?
I've baked it both ways and it does hold it's shape on a cookie sheet. If you want a neater shape then try baking in a pie plate too. Hope you enjoy the recipe!
I was missing an ingredient and tried to make up for it with mozzarella and cream cheese for the consistency needed for the crust and it was a big fail. The taste was great and it probably would've come out better with the missing psyllium husk powder.
Ah, the psyllium husk powder is essential to this pizza dough. At least you enjoyed the taste!
I have a question about the number of eggs: do I have to put 1/2 egg or 1 and a half eggs?
It's one medium egg
I absolutely can't do coconut flour, could I sub Almond flour and if so, how much? Thanks in advance!!!

Angela ~ This is such amazing pizza dough, I can't believe it hasn't gone viral! I'm sorry I haven't written a review long ago because I've used it so many times and it's always a big hit. Thank you for all your great recipes. I've made others as well but then get busy with life and forget to comment. Keep up the good work!! ~ Susan
Thank you Susan. I should put this recipe on my next video to make list!

How many slices does it make? Also, what can I use to substitute for the psyllium husk powder?
I rolled it out to serve 2 people with 4 quarters in total. You could try flaxseed but that might not give the dough texture that psyllium husk powder does. Failing that, perhaps try this with a Fathead dough recipe. I've toyed with that idea, but the cheese overload scares me...still do-able though..

So it makes 4 slices? Do you use a mixer to mix the ingredients or do you mix them manually? What is the size of the pie dish?
I used an 8 inch tin to make this.
