Barbecue Pulled Pork Pizza

    yield: 4 servings
    prep time: 20 minutes
    cook time: 30 minutes

    The crust of this Southern-themed pizza is made with the famous keto mozzarella dough. I’ve found that chilling the dough before rolling it out makes it easier to work with. Don’t be intimidated by making your own pizza crust; it takes a few extra steps, but it’s worth it!


    • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
    • 2 ounces cream cheese (¼ cup)
    • ¾ cup finely ground blanched almond flour
    • 1 large egg
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder


    • ½ cup Easy BBQ Sauce (here), plus extra for serving
    • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    • 1 cup shredded Slow Cooker Pulled Pork (here) or store-bought pulled pork
    • 2 mini sweet peppers, sliced

    1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.

    2. Make the crust: Put the mozzarella and cream cheese in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 90 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds. Remove from the microwave and stir until melted and smooth.

    3. Add the almond flour, egg, and baking powder to the cheese mixture and stir to combine. Microwave for 10 seconds and stir again. Using your hands, mix the ingredients until they’re completely combined and a firm dough comes together. If the dough sticks to your hands, put a little olive oil on your hands and continue. Place the dough in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.

    4. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and place it between two sheets of parchment paper. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough to a ¼-inch thickness in your desired shape. Remove the top sheet of parchment.

    5. Leaving the crust on the bottom sheet of parchment paper, transfer it to a pizza pan or baking sheet. Use a fork to lightly prick holes throughout the crust. Par-bake the crust for 10 minutes, then remove it from the oven and use a fork to pop any bubbles that have formed. Return the crust to the oven and bake until golden brown, 5 to 8 more minutes. Leave the oven on.

    6. Spread the BBQ sauce evenly over the par-baked crust. Top the sauce with the mozzarella, pulled pork, and sliced peppers. Bake the pizza for 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Serve with additional BBQ sauce.
