Does anyone else have pizza night at least once a week? 

We definitely do and we always start with fathead crust. I’ve made a whole lot of low carb pizzas and the fathead is my favorite by far! 

It’s not soggy, it’s very filling, and the texture is just amazing. We all love it and my kids even steal my low carb pizza if I dare make them one on a traditional wheat crust…that’s how you know it’s good! 😉 

Tacos are my favorite food of all time, so a taco pizza had to happen at some point, right?

How to make taco pizza:

To start, we’ll whip up the low carb pizza crust.

It’s just a mix of egg, mozzarella cheese, cream cheese, and almond flour. Super easy, basic ingredients. 

Roll that dough out onto a PARCHMENT-LINED pizza pan. Don’t skip the parchment…this crust WILL STICK without it.

Bake the crust for about 10 minutes before adding your toppings.

While the crust bakes, brown some ground beef and season it with taco seasoning. 

I like this Primal Palate Taco Seasoning – it contains no fillers or starches and it’s keto friendly.

You’ll also want to whip up some of my keto cheese sauce to spread over the crust and then top that off with the ground beef and some shredded cheddar.

Pop this back in the oven to finish off the crust and melt the cheese.

Now is the fun part…layer on all of your favorite taco toppings. We usually go for iceberg lettuce, diced tomatoes, black olives, and green onions. 

I always do a light drizzle of sour cream (pop it in a baggie and snip off the corner and then squirt it on!) and a whole lot of Cholula.

What sauce for taco pizza?

We really like to use my homemade cheese sauce as the sauce for this taco pizza, but a thin layer of my keto enchilada sauce is delicious too!

Can you reheat taco pizza?

Unfortunately, if you add all of the taco toppings to this pizza, it won’t reheat well at all.

If you won’t eat the entire pizza at one meal, I recommend serving up the toppings for people to add to their individual slices. 

The crust + cheese sauce + beef + cheddar will keep in the fridge for 3-4 days and reheats in the oven or microwave perfectly!

  1. Thank you so much! We have made this several times and really like it! We are a family that loves both tacos and pizza!
    I do make this crust on a pizza stone, but still use the parchment paper to keep from sticking. I feel the stone cooks the crust the way we like it. I have learned that the stone needs to warm in the oven during preheating prior to cooking or the crust will not cook thoroughly. We also add spices to the crust, dependent upon how we are using it, cutting the spices into the almond flour before mixing with the cheese.
    Highly recommend!

    Hi! Have you ever tried baking the fathead crust on a pizza stone without using the parchment paper? Just wondering how that would work out!

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Terri! I haven’t tried it, but I’d be a little worried. This dough STICKS without parchment. 😉

  3. Have you tried freezing the fathead crust? Would it be possible to prepare several of these crusts and freeze on the parchment to have on hand for a quick dinner? It’s just my hubby and me and we don’t want pizza once a week all the time but it would be nice to have something quick to pull out when time runs short. I usually have low carb toppings on hand all the time but the crust is what I would like to know.

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Vickie! I haven’t froze this one myself, but I believe it will work just fine!

    I’m really interested in making chaffles….instead of the waffle iron I ordered a grill……will this work?
