After I shared my Popover Pizza recipe, I promised that I’d be sharing my recipe for Flourless Gluten-Free Low-Carb Pizza recipe soon. Your wait is over because here it is!
The original recipe came from my good friend, Katie. She has relied on it whenever she’s “low-carbing.”
Since then, I’ve discovered there are lots of such low-carb pizza recipes online Many of them use this same flourless concept with eggs and cheese as the major ingredients but with greatly different ingredient amounts.
Low-carb diets are often a great source of naturally gluten free recipes. Incidentally, sometimes it’s being on a low-carb diet that actually helps folks realize they have gluten issues.
These individuals often feel so much better when on a low-carb diet and then not so much when they reintroduce the carbs into their diet. In the Standard American Diet (SAD), lots of carbs usually equate to lots of gluten.
Despite Katie’s enthusiastic endorsement, I was very skeptical the first time I made this Flourless Gluten-Free Low-Carb Pizza recipe. Then I took my first bite and I wanted to do backflips!
Each time I’ve made this recipe for our family and for my support group, we are all surprised anew at how great this Flourless Gluten-Free Low-Carb Pizza is!
It’s naturally gluten free—and, of course, I love that as it fits my gfe approach. The crust is made from eggs and cheese, which when combined and baked yield very gluten-like, airy, doughy results.
This recipe even has a super easy keto option.
The last time I made it, Son took a bite and said:
“This is the best pizza. It tastes like real pizza. It tastes like the pizza we used to eat.”
That’s high praise coming from a 21-year old college student! He said the edges of the crust tasted like his Aunt Susie’s sausage balls. LOL
But, again, that’s a terrific compliment. Son will be home in a few days and I’ll be making this Flourless Gluten-Free Low-Carb Pizza again for him to enjoy!
I did tweak Katie’s recipe just a tiny bit. You can see the step-by-step photos below.
I included the last photo to show how the pizza can be picked up with a spatula (or your hands). How can pizza taste this good without a “bread” crust?
“My sister made gfe–gluten free easily pizza crust recipe when I was visiting family in Oregon and it was so good! I wish I had gotten a better picture of it. I can’t believe that I have never made this recipe. It is great for those that eat low carb. Since the crust is full of cheese you don’t need to put that much cheese on top. It is a great option for an easy homemade gf pizza.”
When I thanked her for her review, she replied:
“I cannot believe I hadn’t tried it [before]! It was so good. Thank you for such a great gluten-free recipe. I will be making this when I need an easy gf crust.”
Woohoo! I love feedback like that, especially from folks whose opinions I respect! Here’s another review from sweet gfe reader and friend Ginny (some of you may remember her as Irish Heart from gluten-free forums back in the day): “This is a crustless pizzaaah. Yup! It’s low carb. And Yup…. it’s DELICIOUS!!! Try this. I like it and I’m a pizzaaah snob.” If you aren’t convinced by her words, look at her photo!
And, of course, you don’t have to be gluten free to enjoy this flourless pizza.
Who doesn’t want a great homemade pizza without the need to make a traditional crust? Low-Carb Pizza. Flourless. Doughless. Gluten free. Amazing.
One more thing you should know about this recipe … it’s super filling! I don’t recommend overindulging in it. One small piece is more than enough for me.
When I serve this pizza at parties. I make two pizzas and cut them into small squares. Even then the pizza goes very quickly.
People—almost none of them who are gluten-free folks—rave over this recipe and get very upset if I don’t make it for parties, even their parties at their homes! No kidding! I try not to take offense when they ask, “Did you bring your pizza?” before they say “Hi, Shirley, how are you?”
Recently, I halved the recipe and made a more traditional, round version using a 9-inch cake pan. That worked wonderfully well and was a better size for me. I couldn’t eat all of it in one sitting of course—nor did I want to—but I did eat it over 2 and a half days. I’m sure if you have anyone to share a 9-inch pie with, it won’t last that long but you will enjoy it!
