Keto Zucchini Crust Pizza

This keto-friendly zucchini crust pizza recipe is super simple and super tasty: easy to whip up in about 30 minutes and great for family cooking night, this meal is bound to keep everyone happy. A crispy crust of shredded zucchini forms the base onto which you can pile any toppings of your choosing. We recommend cheeses, herbs, and pepperoni! Not only is it flavorsome, but this pizza is also healthy, nutritious, and filling.

You’ll begin by cooking up your zucchini pizza bases in the oven, which mix shredded zucchini with almond flour and egg. These alone are a powerful nutrition combo: zucchini—a keto staple—is packed full of antioxidants, while eggs provide a rich source of protein and healthy fats without the calories.

Once your zucchini crusts are prepared, the rest is really up to you. Parmesan and mozzarella cheese melt beautifully on a pizza and provide that creamy, stringy goodness that pizzas are so well-loved for. Add a generous amount of pepperoni for an extra protein kick and a touch of spice, then sprinkle over fresh thyme and basil for those delicious, herbaceous undertones. Feel free to substitute or add your own proteins, herbs, and sauces to achieve your personal pizza perfection.

Not only are these zucchini crust pizzas delicious and quick to make, but they’re also super versatile. Sure to be loved by any member of the family, this is a meal you can serve up at the dinner table, for a weekend lunch, or store in the fridge for weekday lunch boxes. Get creative and enjoy!

    Oh my gosh I love how soft the pizza crust is and it looks so delicious.

      Thank you!

    What if you like a firmer crust?

    • shagbark54 on March 9, 2023 at 4:48 pm

      Don’t make it ….duh

    • the simple life on March 9, 2023 at 5:03 pm

      I would try rolling it out really thin, then baking it until its done. It may help firm up the crust. I’ve gotten a firmer crust by doing that with califlower crust pizza.

    • Becky Gregg on March 9, 2023 at 5:21 pm

      @the simple life Thank you, will try

    • Becky Gregg on March 9, 2023 at 5:21 pm

      @shagbark54 sorry u r having a bad day, hope it gets better.

    • RuledMe on March 9, 2023 at 5:35 pm

      Squeeze as much moisture out of the zucchini as you can. But personally I’d just use a different crust recipe. We have a video for Pepperoni Pizza that uses a different crust that gets firmer

  10. Suyapa Jimenez on March 9, 2023 at 5:06 pm

    Looks delicious but not crispy what about if we remove the zucchini liquid. Nevertheless is yummy just the way you made it 👍

    • Char on March 9, 2023 at 5:25 pm

      The recipe says to squeeze the zucchini dry. It probably could stand to be dryer. I like crispy crust.

    • RuledMe on March 9, 2023 at 5:37 pm

      We have a similar crust without the zucchini, I’d use that recipe if you’re worried about a super crispy crust. Check our channel for the Pepperoni Pizza video.

    • Doctor LeoHealth on March 11, 2023 at 2:21 pm

      I think if you put it in an air fryer it might make it crispy!

  11. Therese Rivera on March 9, 2023 at 5:06 pm

    Can ground powdered pork rinds be used in place of almond flour? Would like to make a cheese veggie pizza on Lenten Fridays.😋

    • Diane C on March 9, 2023 at 5:30 pm

      Pork rinds are pork. No meat on fridays in lent.

    • RuledMe on March 9, 2023 at 6:14 pm

      As the other commenter said, Pork would be meat so not sure why you’d want to use that sub. You could sub it out but it will change the texture pretty considerably. Almond flour and pork rinds absorb moisture differently and give a different textures.

    • Jimmie Farrar on March 9, 2023 at 7:04 pm

      @RuledMe then what would pepperoni be classified as?

    • RuledMe on March 9, 2023 at 8:37 pm

      @Jimmie Farrar The original commenter said they’d make cheese and veggie, the pepperoni in this recipe is a topping that can be subbed out for whatever you want?

    • Therese Rivera on March 10, 2023 at 3:07 am

      You are correct – never thought of pork rinds as meat– thanks before I make tomorrow on Friday during LENT🙏Guess I will make the works another day😋BTW, I have discovered from other recipes to use less powdered pork rinds when subbing out for flour.

  12. Faiza italia on March 9, 2023 at 7:11 pm

    Meravigliosa chef come sempre sei super brava ho fatto tutti li tuoi ricette 👍👍👍♥️

  13. Linda Merrifield on March 10, 2023 at 1:28 am

    I’ll be trying this for sure! I love pizza!

    • RuledMe on March 10, 2023 at 8:44 pm

      Let me know how it goes!

  14. Lucinda Jackson on March 10, 2023 at 2:17 am

    I’ve never had a zucchini crust! I’ll bet it’s delicious! I’m torn – I like crispy crust in general, but I think the zucchini flavor would just add a little something different and almost an “herby” flavor. Definitely going on the list!

    • RuledMe on March 10, 2023 at 9:00 pm

      Just make sure you wring out the zucchini really well – but I do hope you enjoy it!

    • Lucinda Jackson on March 10, 2023 at 9:21 pm

      I’ll be sure to do that. And if I find the crust too soft for my tastes but like the flavor, maybe I’ll try a mash-up and do a zucchini fathead crust! 😄

  15. Ayida Beneba on March 10, 2023 at 6:44 am

    I wish to make a keto pizza with less chees than that

    • RuledMe on March 10, 2023 at 8:45 pm

      Use a low-carb tortilla (or make your own using a recipe – we have a few on the website) instead 👍

  16. Doctor LeoHealth on March 11, 2023 at 2:22 pm

    I will try this in my airfryer to make the crust crispy! Cant wait. thank you for the recipe!
