Low carb usually means giving up bread, (unless you read my blog and then you know you can make ALL THESE!) including pizza crust. BUT that doesn’t mean you have to give up pizza! REALLY! Here are 21 low carb pizza recipes that you can eat every day of the week and continue to lose weight with your low-carb lifestyle!
I think the most “famous” pizza recipe for low carb diets is called Fathead Pizza. Some people, like Elizabeth Nimphius over on YouTube actually call it their Holy Grail pizza crust!

She tried (she mentions it in her video comments) using waxed paper on top but you’ll see that did stick a bit.
Check out how super easy this crust is to make in her video below. Once you have the crust made you use it like you would any traditional pizza crust, adding whatever low carb toppings you’d like and then pop it back into the oven to finish baking until you have ooey gooey low carb goodness!
