Ready to include pizza in your diet? This 5 Ingredient Low Carb Pizza recipe should do the trick! Easy to make with simple ingredients, healthy, packed with protein, and absolutely delicious!
You’ll need a mixing bowl, something to bake your low carb pizza on, and the most important thing? An oven!
Start this one by adding into your mixing bowl 2 large whole eggs, 4 large egg whites, 6 ounces of cream cheese, 1/4 cup of rolled oats turned into oat flour, 3 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese, and 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning.
Diet tip? You can easily reduce the sodium in this recipe by looking for lower sodium alternatives for each ingredients!
Mix all of those ingredients together with a hand mixer until your mix is smooth. If you leave your cream cheese out for a bit before you add it in it’ll soften up and mix in easier.
Homemade Oat Flour
To make oat flour all you need to do is add your rolled oats into either a food processor or blender and process or blender until they look like flour. Seriously, that’s it!
Take out a baking pan, dish, or pizza stone and coat it with some non-stick cooking spray. You could also use parchment paper for easy clean up.
Low Carb Pizza Crust
Pour your mix onto whatever you’re using and do your best to shape pizza crust as you pour it on. You can also just use a spoon to shape it and make your pizza whatever shape you want!
The most important part of this step? Make sure that your pizza is level so that it bakes evenly.
Put your low carb pizza crust into the oven on 375F/190C for 25 minutes or until it starts to turn golden brown.
Remove your crust from the oven and choose your favorite low carb toppings! Whatever sauce (think low sugar), healthy cheese, chopped vegetables, or other toppings you want is completely up to you.
Speaking of low carb toppings, let me know some of yours in the comments below!
The toppings I’m using today are 3/4 cup of marinara sauce, 1/2 cup of a Pizza cheese, and a couple slices of a fresh tomato!
Put your completed low carb pizza back into the oven on 375F/190C for around 10 minutes or until your cheese is melted.

Could you use milled linseed instead of oat flour?
You could try but I would blend them quickly to create flour! 🙂
This is awesome! Made it last night and it tasted great. Topped it with some minced beef, which I cooked in a pan, mixed with an egg, chopped pepper and onions, black pepper, chilli seeds and cumin. Turned out reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally delicious and it’s insanely high in protein. Thanks for the recipe!
Love it Alexander! Thank YOU!
Hey Derek, I made this last night and it was awesome! Only problem I had was it stuck pretty bad to my “nonstick” pan even though I sprayed it, would parchment paper work as a base to prevent sticking?
Also I’m using carton egg whites and they say 63g per 2 whites but not necessarily “large egg whites.” I went with 126g but the dough before cooking seemed much runnier than yours, did I use too much?
D: how do you compare this to your Cauliflower crust pizza? Was looking at making it sometime, soon, but then saw your title for this being “The best”
Both are great options! This crust is a bit thicker and takes less time so this would be my choice but I still crave the cauliflower one every so often.
Do you use the oats in their natural state or make oat flour?
Should have noted that in the text for those who don’t watch, sorry! Turn the rolled oats into oat flour! 🙂
Hey! Is there an alternative to the cream cheese? Would Greek yogurt make it weird?
Plain Greek Yogurt OR Cottage Cheese could work though I haven’t traveled down that path yet. If you do, let me know!
Hi! I made the crust with cottage cheese and it came out AMAZING!!!! Best pizza crust alternative ever. I used 3 oz of cottage cheese–the crust did have some chunks within it (given the texture of cottage cheese) but it was still delicious and didn’t affect the taste!
Hi Eleni! Thank you for the awesome feedback – I love it!!!
