This Cloud Bread Pizza is the easiest, high-protein keto pizza crust made from only 5 basic ingredients.

This pizza crust is also gluten-free and dairy-free since no cream cheese is needed, and only 0.8 grams of net carbs per slice!

If you are on a low-carb keto diet and love pizza, try this cloud bread pizza crust! It’s an easy low-carb pizza crust with minimal ingredients and very few carbs.

What’s Cloud Bread Pizza?

A cloud bread pizza is a high protein, low-carb pizza base made from whipped egg whites and flour – usually cornstarch or low-carb flour for the keto version.

Cloud bread pizza crusts are thin with a light crispy texture on the edges. However, it’s not as crispy as an almond pizza crust because it contains minimal keto flour.

However, if you are after a very low-carb pizza option, it’s your best option as it contains up to 3 times fewer carbs per slice than more classic keto pizza crust.

It’s a very common recipe on a keto diet as a bread substitute to make dairy-free cloud bread buns or classic cloud bread buns with minimal carbs and lots of protein.

How To Make A Cloud Bread Pizza Crust

It’s pretty easy to make cloud bread pizza crust, and it’s a great way to enjoy a pizza high in protein and low in carbs.

Ingredients

All you need to make the cloud bread batter are:

  • Egg Whites – split the yolks from the whites. Keep the egg whites for this pizza recipe and store the yolks in the fridge to make my keto lemon curd just after. Don’t store egg yolks for more than 24 hours. Eggs are keto-friendly.
  • Xanthan Gum – or cornstarch if not low-carb.
  • Almond Flour – this low-carb flour helps binds the egg whites together, don’t skip it. Learn how to pick the best keto flour.
  • Salt
  • Garlic Powder
  • Oregano or any Italian herbs you love to flavor your pizza.
  • Cream of Tartar is optional but helps the egg white stay stiff and doesn’t deflate.

Get Ready To Start

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly oil the paper with cooking spray to prevent the pizza crust from sticking to the paper.

Set it aside.

Next, split egg whites from egg yolks and store your egg yolks in the fridge for another recipe.

Making The Cloud Bread Pizza

First, place the egg white and salt in a large mixing bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer.

Then, use the whisk attachment or hand mixer to beat the egg whites and cream of tartar until a stiff peak forms.

Stop the beater, add garlic powder, oregano, almond flour, and xanthan gum.

Whisk again to incorporate and until the mixture is stiff and firm.

Baking

Using a silicone spatula, transfer the egg white mixture onto the prepared tray and spread in a 10-inch circle shape.

Bake in the center rack of the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Adding Toppings

Remove the pizza crust from the oven, decrease oven temperature to 320°F (160°C), and spread some pizza sauce and the topping you like.

I recommend avoiding vegetables that release water or the crust softened too much,

The best keto-friendly toppings for cloud bread pizza are:

  • Cured meats like ham, pepperoni, and prosciutto ham.
  • Seafood like shrimps.
  • Meat – ground beef, ground chicken, bacon.
  • Hard Grated Cheese, like hard shredded mozzarella.

Return To The Oven

Bake again at 320°F (160°C) until the cheese is melted.

If the borders of the crust brown too fast, use a piece of foil to protect the edge or loosely place it on the top of the pizza.

Serve immediately.

    11 Thoughts On Cloud Bread Pizza (Keto, No Dairy)
  1. 5 stars
    Best pizza crust I’ve tried yet!! I followed recipe and added toppings. Baked 5mins longer and it was delicious!! Try it!!

  2. 5 stars
    This was so good! I am already 90% grain free, and I really enjoyed this. The texture was great, and I didn’t even use cream of tartar.
    Is there a pizza sauce you recommend? One without sugar or seed oils is preferred;)

  3. I’ve been waiting for a great recipe like this! I am gluten intolerant and have craved pizza so much! So far all the gluten free ones are too dense and thin. Is there another flour you would suggest? I have an almond allergy, but love cloud bread. Thanks!

  4. Can you substitute 2 whole eggs for 4 egg whites? Eggs are so expensive these days and I would just be throwing out the yolks.
