Farmer’s Market Keto Grilled Pizza
Most can agree that wood fired pizza is some of the best pizza out there. The high heat is what makes it such an incredible pizza. Cooking your pizza on the grill is the closest thing to wood fired pizza as it can generate more heat than most ovens giving you a crispy AND chewy pizza crust.
Keto pizza crust (link to fathead recipe) can be cooked on any type of outdoor grill (gas, charcoal or traeger). The pizza dough fluffs up to create a chewy, thick crust with crispy edges.
Top your pizza with all the farmer’s market bounty summertime has to offer and you will have a fresh and fabulous keto pizza.
Since fathead pizza dough is primarily made out of cheese, you can not place it directly on the grill to cook. The dough can melt, sink through the grill slates, drop to the bottom and create a big mess. Using a grill mat, grill pan, pizza stone or aluminum foil to hold your crust is the best option.

Charcoal Grill, Gas Grill, Traeger

Light the charcoal chimney and let it heat up. Once the coals are ready, dump them into the grill base. Move the goals evenly over all of the grill for direct heat. Let the grill heat to 400 to 450 degrees.
Turn on the gas on, ignite the grill and let the grill heat up to 450 degrees. Cook pizza over direct heat.
Traeger pellet grill
Add pellets to your Traeger grill. Preheat the grill to 400 degrees. Cook pizza for 15 to 20 minutes.
Make Ahead Instructions
Preparing the keto pizza dough ahead of time is an easy way to have pizza for dinner on those busy Summer nights. That way you can spend more time enjoying the warm outdoors rather than working away in the kitchen.
Make the keto pizza dough ahead of time and stored in the freezer for up to 4 months. Tightly wrap the fathead dough ball in plastic wrap and then place in a freezer safe bag. The keto dough can also be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
