Prep Time: 7 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes


Yields 1 pizza crust

  • 2 ½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten

Garlic herb butter

  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Pinch of dried oregano
  • Pinch of dried marjoram


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add the mozzarella to a microwave-safe mixing bowl.
  3. Microwave for 1 minute or until fully melted. Stir.
  4. Add the almond flour, baking powder, salt, and xanthan gum to the bowl with the cheese.
  5. Mix with a rubber spatula or by hand until well combined.
  6. Add the eggs. Mix with a rubber spatula or by hand until incorporated.
  7. Microwave for 30 seconds. The dough will rise a bit.
  8. Give the dough a quick stir.
  9. Transfer the dough to the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  10. Roll the dough out to the desired shape or use lightly oiled hands to flatten the dough. It should be about ¼ inch thick. Lightly grease the rolling pin if using.
  11. Create a border around the rolled dough using your hands. Press it down a bit in the center, so you get a nice puffy outer crust.
  12. Poke holes in the bottom of the dough with a fork.
  13. Bake for 12 minutes or until the pizza crust is golden brown.
  14. Meanwhile, melt the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds or until it starts to foam.
  15. Add the garlic powder and dried herbs.
  16. Remove the crust from the oven and brush with the seasoned butter. Once the crust is done, add sauce and toppings, then broil on low until the toppings are melted and bubbly.
