This low carb breakfast pizza is made with a delicious, cheesy coconut flour crust. Add cheese, eggs and bacon, and you’ve got yourself the perfect breakfast pizza!
I’ve been wanting to make a low carb, keto breakfast pizza for awhile now. But as long as my go-to low carb pizza crust was made out of cauliflower, it just didn’t seem like it would work. Cauliflower pizza crust is very tasty, but it’s not very sturdy.
Then I discovered this amazing coconut flour pizza crust. It sounds suspicious, I know, but it’s wonderful. It’s tasty, not coconutty at all, and it’s quite sturdy.
That’s when I knew I would finally be able to use this crust for a low carb, keto breakfast pizza.
How do you make keto breakfast pizza?
It’s so easy, really. Make the crust (it’s easy), add some cheese, bacon and eggs – and you’ve got yourself the perfect, prettiest, most delicious keto breakfast pizza. In fact, in my experience, coconut flour crust is easier to make and work with than wheat flour crust. And I should know. Back in my high carb days I owned a bread machine and used to make homemade pizza.
Keto breakfast pizza is also great for dinner
Although I usually make this low carb breakfast pizza for weekend brunch, I also make it quite often for dinner and serve it with a side of a simple salad, or some steamed broccoli. It’s substantial and very filling.
But is this keto breakfast pizza healthy?
Well, it’s gluten free and low carb. And we now know that full fat dairy is not harmful. But bacon is still suspicious, even though some doubt the validity of the research that connects processed meat to disease.
In any case, if you prefer to avoid processed meat, by all means omit the bacon! You can use cooked and crumbled homemade sausage instead, or replace the bacon with vegetables.
Low Carb Breakfast Pizza
- Olive oil spray
- 4 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- ¼ cup coconut flour
- 6 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese (1 oz)
- 6 bacon strips
- 1 cup shredded provolone cheese (4 oz)
- 6 small or medium eggs
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line two pans with parchment paper and spray the paper with olive oil.
- Place the bacon strips in a large cold skillet. Heat the skillet over medium heat. Cook the bacon until just crisp. Allow to cool on paper towels, then cut into bite-size pieces. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with the water, garlic powder, onion powder and dried oregano.
- Measure out the coconut flour, breaking up any lumps with your hands. Stir the coconut flour into the egg mixture, mixing until smooth. Stir in the Parmesan cheese.
- Allow the mixture to rest and thicken for a couple of minutes. This will allow the coconut flour to soak up the liquid.
- Using a rubber spatula, transfer half of the mixture onto each of the prepared pans. Use a spatula to spread it out evenly into an 8-inch circle.
- Bake the pizzas until just set but still light in color, about 10 minutes.
- Remove the baked crusts from the oven. Spray them with olive oil. Sprinkle each crust with half the shredded cheese.
- Break the eggs into a small bowl, then slide them onto the pizzas. If you’re using large eggs, it’s best to pour out some of the egg whites.
- Return the pizzas to the oven. Bake until egg whites are almost set, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle the pizzas with the bacon pieces. Bake until egg whites are fully cooked, 2-3 more minutes.
- Allow to rest 5 minutes before cutting each pizza into three big slices and serving.
