Keto Chorizo Crust Breakfast Pizza

Keto Chorizo Crust Breakfast Pizza

I’m sure most of you have heard about and have eaten typical keto pizza crusts. For instance, in the keto world, there are: chicken pizza crusts, beef pizza ‘meatza’ crusts, cauliflower crusts, crustless/cheese crusts, and the infamous fathead crusts. I am presenting, to my knowledge, the first Keto Chorizo Crust Breakfast Pizza! The chorizo actually baked really well as a crust. It ended up crispy and firm enough to hold the toppings. I didn’t eat it like a slice of pizza, just because chorizo is a bit greasy. However, you very well can. I was able to pick up a piece without it falling apart!

The flavor of this Keto Chorizo Crust Breakfast Pizza is out of this world! At first, I was thinking about adding pepperoni, onion, etc. as the toppings, since I was thinking about pizza. However, as I thought about it more, I knew it would make the perfect breakfast pizza – paired with eggs. The sauce is creamy and cheesy with typical pizza flavoring. I think I’ll use it even more moving forward!

EGGS:

For tips on the creamiest scrambled eggs possible, refer to my recipe here: https://ambersketokitchen.com/recipe/keto-scrambled-eggs-and-bacon/

COOKING TIME:

This recipe really does not take very long to make. All together, it took about 30-40 minutes total to prepare this pizza. Most of the time (20 minutes) was tied to baking. Preparation of the crust was about 5 minutes, making the sauce took about 3-5 minutes, and making the scrambled eggs took another few minutes. Thus, you’re only looking at about 10 minutes of hands-on effort! Otherwise, it’s simply a matter of waiting. Trust me, this pizza is well worth the wait!

Hope you enjoy!

  • Using your hands (and optionally disposable gloves), mix ingredients until fully incorporated.
  • Place a 9 inch springform pan on top of a baking sheet.
  • Next, place the crust mixture into the springform pan, spreading with your fingers until flat. With the mixture, I went about an inch up around the sides, to form more of a crust.
