Keto Prosciutto Onion Tomato Pizza Ingredients

  • 3.5 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, plus 1 cup for toppings
  • 1.5 cups almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons pizza sauce
  • 3 oz prosciutto
  • 2 tablespoons diced red onion
  • 4 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 chives, minced (optional)

Keto Prosciutto Onion Tomato Pizza Directions

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • 2
    Place 3.5 cups of mozzarella in a microwave-safe glass bowl. Microwave for about two minutes until cheese is melted. Stir to combine and make sure all of the cheese is melted. Remove from microwave and let the mixture cool.
  • 3
    In a large separate bowl, mix together the almond flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, and salt. Set aside.
  • 4
    Add in your egg to the melted mozzarella cheese. Mix using an electric mixer until combined.
  • 5
    Slowly add the almond flour mixture to the cheese mixture. Using an electric mixer or food processor, stir until you have a uniform dough. Don’t be surprised if dough goes flying if you are using the mixer! This can happen, but this is an easy way to combine the mixtures in order to make the best fat head dough. If you don’t have an electric mixer or food processor, I recommend kneading the dough by hand until it comes together. This is a messy and time-consuming process, but the end result is the same - fat head pizza.
  • 6
    Once combined, form a big dough ball. Knead the dough a couple of times on a lightly almond floured surface to ensure the dough is uniform in appearance and all ingredients are fully combined.
  • 7
    Place the ball in between two pieces of parchment paper.
  • 8
    Roll out dough to desired thickness. Remove top parchment layer and place on top of a baking sheet.
  • 9
    Spread pizza sauce evenly over the pizza crust.
  • 10
    Sprinkle 1 cup of mozzarella cheese all over the crust.
  • 11
    Add prosciutto.
  • 12
    Sprinkle diced red onion evenly over the pizza.
  • 13
    Add cherry tomatoes half all over the pizza dough.
  • 14
    Sprinkle chives if using.
  • 15
    Bake at 400 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes or until cheese is starting to brown and is bubbly.

Prosciutto, Red Onion, Cherry Tomato Keto Pizza

Tips For Making Fathead Pizza Dough

If you are looking for the background on fathead dough, you can read all about it here. I also go over all the tips and tricks for making the best crispy, chewy keto pizza crust out there.

I recommend doubling or tripling the recipe for keto pizza crust whenever you make it. You can store the extra in the freezer wrapped in plastic wrap. That way it’s easy to have pizza on busy nights when you have that craving.

What Is Prosciutto?

Prosciutto is a dry cured Italian ham that is thinly sliced and traditionally served uncooked. It is often served as an antipasto or paired with vegetables like asparagus.

I love prosciutto on pizza. It is salty and crisps up a little when you bake it on top of the pizza.

If you don’t have prosciutto on hand, you can substitute for bacon. Make sure you cook the bacon ahead of time. Cook it crispy and sprinkle all over the keto pizza.

Are Tomatoes Keto?

Tomatoes are a fruit but you can have them on the keto diet. There carbs are a little bit higher compared to other keto approved fruit and vegetables, but they are fine to consume a small amount of them.

A medium sized tomato can have about 4 net carbs for the entire tomato. Most people don’t eat one whole tomato in a setting, but a few slices here and there are okay.
