If Chicago went on a diet and stared counting calories, you’d probably end up with this delicious Low Carb Deep Dish Pizza recipe! These taste just as good as they look, are easy to make your own, and even easier to meal prep.
We start this one off by making our low carb pizza crust. To make this crust you’ll need to add 3 large eggs, 5 ounces of cream cheese, 1/2 teaspoon of oregano, 6 tablespoons of parmesan cheese, 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder, and 9 ounces of your choice cheese into a bowl.
Change this one up by using a pizza blend (my choice!), 4 cheese blend, 5 cheese blend, mozzarella, or any other cheese you like on a pizza.
You can also use fat free or reduced fat to really cut down on the calories.
Mix all of those low carb pizza crust ingredients up until smooth.
Small baking pans like these mini loaf pans you see above are great for this low carb deep dish pizza recipe and super cheap!
Don’t want a mini pizza? Don’t worry! All you need to remember is that the bigger your pan is, the longer it’ll take to cook.
Coat those pan(s) with some non-stick cooking spray and evenly distribute your mix into them.
Put those onto a baking sheet and into the oven on 375F/190C for around 20-25 minutes.
Low Carb Deep Dish Toppings
When your crust is done, spread on top your favorite pizza sauce, pizza cheese, and some optional pepperoni slices. How much of each topping is up to you or if you ant any other toppings.
Put those back into the oven again on 375F/190C for around 20 minutes or until your cheese has fully melted.
How good does that Low Carb Deep Dish Pizza look?!
The best part? You’re looking at only around 350 calories per pizza with fat free ingredients. Considering a couple bites of real deep dish is probably close to 350 calories alone!
You can also save your crusts in the fridge or freezer and top them when you’re ready.

If I do it all in one baking pan, how long would suggest I bake the crust then everything else once added?
I’d start with 5-10 minutes but keep an eye on it the entire time!
Tried these out and was blown away. Had my wife try one I’d left in the fridge and she was likewise in awe.
Have been doing these for meal prep using various ingredients (Turkey pepperoni, mushrooms, spinach, bacon) and have not been disappointed.
Actually added a bit of this “superfood” protein powder I use, to the crust recipe, and didn’t notice any difference.
Making them for us right now- just back to check the recipe again, and thought I’d leave a review, and a big “THANK YOU!!” for this wonderful recipe.
Awesome to hear Christian! Thank you!
Just made this yesterday but added turkey sausage bits and olives, came out amazing and actually tastes like real pizza. I made 8 servings for a weeks meal prep, reheated one up in a toaster oven the next day, came out as if freshly made!
Love it Ray!!! Thanks so much for the awesome feedback. Glad you liked it.
Does the nutritional count include the pepperoni and extra cheese topping? I’m guessing no but just thought I’d check.
Hi Debra! This includes everything I added. Hope this helps! Thanks for the comment.
Instead of pizza sauce and pep I used a wing sauce and shredded chicken. Turned out great!
I made this for my son who is trying to eat healthier and he loved it! He practically licked the dish clean. Lol. Keep sharing your delicious recipes!!
I really enjoyed this dish. Great way for a vegetarian to get a high protein meal that is actually enjoyable! Filling too. I topped it with some diced Green peppers.
Thanks Julie! Glad you liked it…
