Keto Mediterranean pizza with a crispy crust
My Keto Mediterranean pizza just came out of the oven and I thought to myself… Will it give the same pleasure as the original thin crust gives? For sure, foodies in the low-carb universe miss the crispy effect of conventional baked goods. It’s not like we can’t live without that experience, but it gives a spice to life. So, as I was cutting my newest Keto pizza experiment, excitement started growing… The crust turned out so deliciously crispy while the rich topping gave a richer sensation. Shall I say it? I need to say it, don’t I?
Eureka! Eureka to the full potential! 😉
What makes it a Keto Mediterranean Pizza?
Modern and contemporary culinary art doesn’t look far into the past. For example, Raffaele Esposito was the inventor and creator of modern pizza. For this reason, pizza is associated with the streets of Raffaelle’s city, Naples. However, this picturesque Italian city was founded by Ancient Greeks and has a strong Greek vibe. In particular, the name Naples comes from the Neapoli (Νεάπολη) which in Greek means new city. Furthermore, the name pizza comes from the Greek word pita… So, if you associate pizza with Italy or Greece, you get the very essence of Mediterranean cuisine. This is a kind of cooking that aims to lift up the spirit. Not only feed the body, but nourish the soul too. Finally, our Keto Mediterranean pizza follows that particular philosophy!
A quick historical overview
Every ancient civilisation had something that could be pizza’s ancestor. Ancient Egyptians and Greeks surely had a type of flat pie. Romans did too. Historically, people in the Mediterranean zone strived to advance the quality of life. In particular, they knew how to create something great from plain ingredients. The origin of pizza hides a story of lower class creative people. They managed to create joyful dishes out of very poor ingredients. But the modern version can go in two directions. It often ends up unhealthy if you use modern ingredients. On the other side, it can become a masterpiece of culinary art. It all depends on the level of your dedication to details. This also means that every pizza should have at least one Mediterranean detail. Our Keto Mediterranean pizza combines sesame paste, herbs, spices, goat or sheep cheese, eggs, smoked meat, tomato paste, olive oil, garlic, sea salt, capers…

Greek pizza–be still my heart. Eager to make your fabulous recipe. Can anything be substituted for citric acid? Lemon extract? Thanks.
You could probably put the 4 Tablespoons of lemon juice (to substitute the citric acid) in the yoghurt mixture, but then add a smidge more coconut flour.
I think 4T is a lot of lemon flavour though. Might work nicely for lemon bars or something but might not be enjoyable for pizza. 4T is a quarter cup which is the measurement used in lemon dessert recipes I have.
Thanks. I wasn’t sure if the citric acid was for flavor or for the reaction with baking soda. Yea, that’s a lot of lemon juice. I’ll order citric acid.
This “crust” recipe is now a staple in my diet. It’s fabulous and very versatile. I’ve used it as pizza crust, bagels and pita bread. Excellent! A perfect vehicle for butter, cream cheese spreads and liver pate. I’m here now to make it into rounds for sandwiches.
