Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.
  • In a large bowl, add all of the dry ingredients and mix well.
    Add the 3 eggs and mix with a rubber spatula. The dough won't really be sticking together here and there will be lots of yellow spots from the eggs.
    Pour ¼ cup of boiling water at a time into the batter while mixing as best as you can with a rubber spatula.
  • When you can't mix anymore with the spatula, start kneading with your hands until the dough forms a big ball.
  • Now you can either make 2 small pizzas (about 25cm/10" in diameter) or a large one. My oven is too small to make a large one so I made two pizzas.

For a thin crust pizza

  • Separate the dough in half. Make a ball with your hands and place the dough over a piece of parchment paper.
    Cover with a second piece of parchment paper and roll out with a rolling pin until you have about a 10"/25cm pizza. You probably won't be able to make a perfect circle so with a pizza cutter, make a circle around the dough, take the extra bits of dough that you just cut off and stick them back on the pizza dough so you don't waste any dough.
    Cover with the parchment paper one more time and just lightly roll out the circle a bit more just so that the extra dough sticks to the bottom dough layer.
    Repeat with the second half of the dough.

For a thick crust pizza

  • Separate the dough in half. Make a ball with your hands and place the dough over a piece of parchment paper.
    Cover with a second piece of parchment paper and roll out with a rolling pin until you have about a 10"/25cm pizza. You probably won't be able to make a perfect circle, but that's okay. Take the edges of the pizza and roll them in to form a crust. Make sure the crust is well rolled and is staying in place as it can unroll in the oven when cooking.
    Continue rolling the edges of the pizza until you have a thick crust formed all around the pizza circle.

  • Transfer the baking paper with the dough stuck on it onto an oven tray and bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
    Take out of the oven, top with your favourite toppings and then bake in the oven for an extra 15-20 minutes (until your pizza toppings are cooked through).

Notes

  • You cannot leave out the psyllium husk powder in this recipe. It is absolutely essential.
    • If you only have whole husks, grind them in a blender first to make a powder.
  • Make sure to use boiling water and not cold water.  It helps activate the psyllium.
  • Make sure to pre-bake your crust before adding the toppings over.
  • Make sure to roll out the keto pizza dough between two pieces of parchment paper.
  • Instead of the spices, you can use any type of spices you want.  I just really like onion and garlic powder!
