Low Carb Deep Dish Pizza Recipe

Low Carb “Deep Dish” Pizza

Published: Updated:

On a low carb journey, the yearning for pizza is undeniable, and feels like a forbidden indulgence. This Low Carb “Deep Dish” Pizza recipe was developed to satisfy those cravings. Gone are the days of longing for traditional crusts laden with carbs. Instead, I introduce a chaffle-based crust that satisfies even the most discerning pizza connoisseurs.

After experimenting with various dough alternatives like fathead, cauliflower, and chicken, none quite hit the mark. However, a stroke of culinary inspiration led to the creation of the ultimate low carb pizza crust: the Garlic Bread Chaffle. This revelation transformed pizza night forever.

While the Dash Mini Waffle Maker works for standard chaffles, I highly recommend the traditional Belgian Waffle Maker for an authentic deep dish experience. Its larger size provides the perfect canvas for building layers of flavor.

The beauty of this Low Carb “Deep Dish” Pizza lies in its versatility. Load up on toppings — from pizza sauce (I recommend Rao’s), cheeses, meats, low carb veggies — and let your creativity run wild. Just remember to adjust the nutritional information accordingly. If you’re vegetarian, the crust is meatless, so you can pile on those veggies guilt-free!
