Keto Focaccia

Do you ever find yourself craving the texture of bread with the flavor of pizza crust? But also not wanting to eat a whole bunch of carbs?

Well, if you weren’t before, you probably are now. And that, my friend, is the perfect time to make this delicious Keto focaccia!

Whipped egg whites give this bread a soft, chewy texture while rosemary olive oil, tomatoes, and flaky sea salt add incredible flavor. It’s pretty much guaranteed to satisfy even your toughest carb cravings.

It’s also my go-to when I need a crowd-pleasing appetizer, or when I want something to serve alongside low-carb pasta. There’s never a bad time to whip up a batch!

What Is Focaccia Bread?

If you’re unfamiliar with focaccia, it’s a flat oven-baked bread from Italy. It’s typically served with toppings like olive oil, herbs, and spices. Simple recipes may include tomatoes or olives, while other recipes get crazy with peaches and apples, anchovies and capers, and more.

It’s kind of like a reverse pizza. With pizza, the bread is a vehicle and the toppings are the main focus. With focaccia, the bread is the star, and the toppings are really there to enhance the bread.

While focaccia can have a wide variety of preparations, this recipe is definitely on the simpler side. You only need five ingredients plus salt for the bread and four ingredients for the toppings. Prep takes about 15 minutes, then you just throw it in the oven!

How Many Carbs In Focaccia?

The answer is going to depend drastically on the ingredients used and the serving size. The flour used makes a huge difference.

For a general comparison, traditional focaccia can have around 20 grams of carbohydrates with only 1 gram of fiber per slice. These recipes typically call for all-purpose flour.

This Keto focaccia, on the other hand, has about 5 grams of carbs and 3 grams of fiber per slice. That comes out to just 2 net carbs! Almond flour is the secret to making this dish low carb.

What To Make With Leftover Egg Yolks

When you make this recipe, you’re going to have four leftover egg yolks. If you’re like me and hate wasting food, here are a few great recipes to use them up.

For a tasty treat with the perfect balance of sweet and tart flavor, I recommend my gluten free lemon pie, which calls for four egg yolks. With 14 net carbs, it’s more low-carb than Keto, but it’s a great option if it fits your macros.

For a lower-carb dessert, both my Keto coconut cream pie and my chocolate peanut butter Keto parfait call for two egg yolks. If you make both, then no yolks will go to waste!

Looking for an indulgent chocolate treat? Rich and creamy Keto chocolate pudding calls for three egg yolks.

Who would’ve thought a Keto diet could include wonderful low-carb focaccia and delicious desserts?

Can You Store Almond Flour Focaccia?

You bet! This recipe makes 16 servings, so unless you’re feeding a large crowd, you’ll hopefully have a few slices left over.

I recommend storing your focaccia in an airtight container in the refrigerator. This will preserve the freshness, plus I think refrigerating almond flour baked goods can actually make the texture even softer. Win-win!
