Can I Eat Pizzas on a Keto Diet?

The short answer is yes! Although you can’t have classic pizzas, as flour dough is high in carbs, there are increasing options available for gluten-free and keto diets. One of the most popular that is taking New York by storm is cauliflower crust.

Can I Eat Gluten-Free Pizzas on a Keto Diet?

Not all gluten-free pizzas are compatible with a keto diet. Some gluten-free doughs are made from starchy ingredients that wouldn’t be ok. Always ask what the gluten-free option is made from, or stick with a cauliflower pizza crust to be on the safe side.

Which Is the Most Keto-Friendly Pizza Crust?

Traditionally, pizza crust is made from flour, which is a big no for those following a keto diet. However, there are alternatives available today that are tasty and won’t compromise your diet. The most popular crust is made from cauliflower with a sprinkling of cheese for extra taste.

Are All Cauliflower Crust Pizzas Keto-Friendly?

No, they aren’t. Although the crust is fine, you still need to make sure the pizza doesn’t have high-carb or sugar-packed toppings. For instance, you should avoid toppings like pineapple, corn and BBQ sauce.

What Are Some Low-Carb Pizza Toppings I Can Eat?

Most meat toppings like peperoni, chicken, ham and bacon are low in carbs. If you’re not a meat-lover, most veggie topping like mushrooms, artichokes, olives, peppers and spinach are also low in carbs.

What Should I Look Out for When Ordering a Keto Pizza?

First, make sure the crust is made of cauliflower or other low-carb varieties. Second, check the pizza doesn’t have any toppings that are high in sugar or carbs, like sweet potato or pineapple. Finally, avoid sauces like BBQ sauce as they often contain sugar.
