Next, make sure you shape fluffy pizza edges. Indeed, the gluten-free keto pizza crust won’t raise much as there is no gluten in the dough. That is why it is important to make puffy edges to create these lovely pizza-like slices.
My tip is to work the dough as if you were playing with kids’ playdoh, giving the dough the shape you want to see when out of the oven. The borders will slightly puff when baking, especially if you are using yeast.

Hi! Do you need help to start Keto?

The recipe can be made with or without yeast. The yeast-free option uses baking powder.
As a result of not using yeast, the pizza dough won’t rise much, and the bread flavor won’t be as intense.
That is why I also provide a yeast option for this recipe.
Yes, you can eat some yeast on a keto diet.
Even though you need sugar to activate the yeast, there is no more sugar once it has made its effect. What happens is that the yeast feeds on sugar, and it will consume all the sugar, and none will be present in the final keto pizza dough.
So if you are craving a puffy, crispy pizza with real bread flavor, use the yeast option, you won’t regret it, and your ketosis will be safe!
This low-carb pizza base is made with only keto-friendly ingredients – including the yeast activated in sugar!
