Almond Flour vs. Coconut Flour for Low Carb Pizza?
We’ve tested both types of low carb flours and both are fantastic. We did find that the coconut flour was a little more firm and crisp than the almond flour. Also, there’s different types of almond flour: some have the whole almonds milled into the flour. This means that there’s the almond skin in the flour mix too. This type of almond flour made the pizza crust softer. But the almond flour without the brown skins definitely had a better, firm texture. Added bonus, these crusts are gluten-free pizza crusts too. There’s so much to enjoy and the whole test kitchen team absolutely loved eating pizza with less carbs. YUM!
How to Make Low Carb Pizza Crust with Almond Flour Keto
- Make the base pizza crust by softening the cheese & cream cheese.
- Add the low carb flour of choice: almond flour or coconut flour. Roll the dough into the ball and it will be slightly sticky, so it helps to lightly oil or wet your hands.
- Shape the soft low carb pizza dough into the flat shape.
- Use a low carb homemade tomato sauce. Here’s the recipe.
- Add all your toppings, bake and enjoy! All recipe details are in the recipe box below.
If you’re adding veggies as toppings, lightly coat them with oil so that they can bake better. Also, season the veggies first for more flavor during the baking. If you’re using any meat, make sure it’s precooked before you add it as pizza topping. Read the online recipe write up tips and view the helpful step by step pictures.

If needed, oil your hands lighlty and slightly knead the mixture until a dough forms. If it’s too hard, microwave for a few seconds to make it softer.
