Our BIG MAC PIZZA is loaded with ground beef, special sauce, pickles, and cheese. We even top it off with a sprinkle of sesame seeds. This low carb pizza will quickly become a family favorite!
If you’ve been around here for any length of time, you might have noticed my love of the Big Mac.
It’s safe to say that I love a good Big Mac. It’s the sauce that does it for me.
Of course, everyone loves pizza, so it was high time we married the two together!
Enter this Big Mac Pizza – we turned it keto, but kept it something that’s family friendly.
Which, in my house, means we’re using a fathead dough. My kids and husband love that dough just as much as any wheat dough out there. It’s fabulous, easy, and I’m going to show you how to make it.
Fathead Crust Ingredients:
Almond Flour – We have only tested this recipe using almond flour. Coconut flour would likely work, but at a lesser amount or with more eggs.
Big Mac Pizza Toppings:
Seasonings – We’re using a mix of onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Lettuce – Shredded or finely chopped.
Cheddar – American cheese would be more authentic to the Big Mac, but I just couldn’t bring myself to put it on a pizza.
Pickles – Dill pickle chips are perfect here.
Big Mac Sauce – This is a simple mix of sugar-free ketchup, mayonnaise, dill relish, mustard, vinegar, onion powder, and paprika. It’s sweet, tangy, and perfect for topping this pizza.
Sesame Seeds – Not strictly necessary, but we think they’re a fun addition!
Make the Crust: Fathead crust is very simple to make. Melt the mozzarella and cream cheese together in the microwave and then stir in the almond flour and egg to form a dough.
Bake this on a parchment lined baking sheet (this is important – the dough will stick if you don’t use parchment!) for about 10 minutes and then add your toppings.
Make the Big Mac Sauce: While the pizza is baking, whisk together all of the ingredients for the sauce. We use Heinz No Sugar Added Ketchup, but any sugar-free ketchup will work well here. We just like the classic flavor of Heinz.
Make the Beef: Brown the beef in a skillet and season well.
Sauce the Pizza: Spread a bit of the Big Mac sauce over the parbaked pizza crust. Sprinkle on plenty of cheddar and spoon the beef over the top.
Top the Pizza: When the pizza is finished baking, sprinkle on the shredded lettuce, minced onion, and pickles. Drizzle the sauce over the top and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
Does this reheat well?
Unfortunately, this is one of those pizzas that you really need to finish off right away. The lettuce on top just doesn’t hold up to reheating.
If you really don’t think you’ll finish it off, you can top individual slices of pizza with the toppings and store leftovers separately. Fathead pizza reheats well in the microwave or oven.
