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.
