Keto BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza Ingredients

Keto BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza Directions

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    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.

    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.

    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.

Low Carb BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza

This is a great way to use up leftover pulled pork. Keto BBQ pulled pork pizza starts with my homemade low carb BBQ sauce on fathead pizza dough. Next, layers of pizza cheese, smoked pulled pork, red onion, and green onion are placed on top of the dough. Finally the pizza is topped with crumbled blue cheese and cilantro.

Pulled pork is one of my favorite proteins to meal prep. It is inexpensive and easy to cook up. It also yields a lot of meat which I can use in various recipes throughout the week. This keto BBQ pulled pork pizza is always on the menu when I’m cooking up some pulled pork.

Keto BBQ Sauce

If you don’t want to make your own BBQ sauce, you can buy a store bought low sugar BBQ Sauce. The two brands of BBQ sauce that I recommend are by Lillie’s Q and Primal Kitchen’s.

Keto Pizza Crust

Option to Grill Pizza

I usually bake my keto pizza in the oven; however, this low carb pizza is excellent grilled on the BBQ. It already has smoky flavor from the pulled pork add that flavor to the crust enhance the BBQ experience. I have full directions on how to grill a keto pizza on the grill in this post here. It makes the perfect summertime dinner.

Optional Pizza Topping Variations

Although this pizza is tasty on its own, consider these other topping options for this keto pizza.
