Keto White Pizza

I've recently learned that a lot of people have no idea that white sauce pizza is a thing, so I thought that this was a great opportunity to share this great recipe with all of you. 

Don't get me wrong, red sauce pizza is delicious, but I like to mix it up a bit sometimes. Following a low carb diet, I think it's important to have variety in your foods. I think keeping a variety of foods in your diet can help you from falling off of the keto wagon. It's time to mix up pizza night, my friends!

Is Pizza OK to Eat While on a Keto Diet?

While there are some great recipes out there for keto friendly pizza, you cannot just call up a pizza parlor and order a pizza when you are on the keto diet. This recipe and the other keto pizza recipes that I have posted on this site are all perfectly fine to enjoy on your low-carb diet. 

Tips for Getting the Best Results with this Keto White Pizza

Some of my favorite tips for seeing the best results on this pizza are as follows:

Use a Pizza Stone

Pizza stones are a great tool for making the best pizza! It's not always easy to create a crispy keto pizza crust, but this is a little secret to change that. The pizza stone helps the crust become crispy on the outside while staying chewy on the inside.

 Do Not Overcook

Overcooking pizza really can ruin the taste of a perfect pizza. I mean, don't get me wrong, we will still eat it, but the reality is that there is a sweet spot when you remove the pizza from the oven. 

Stick with Minimal Ingredients

This pizza really does have minimal ingredients and that is part of the reason it is so delicious! These particular ingredients pair well together to create a burst of delicious flavor. It really doesn't need anything more. 

Include the Whole Family in Pizza Night

Okay, so this tip might not affect how well the pizza turns out, but including your entire family in the making of the pizza can certainly create the best results for pizza night.

How to Store Leftover Keto White Pizza

I just love leftover pizza, don't you? If you have leftovers left after you enjoy your pizza night, you can easily store them for later! Here's how:

Fridge

Store your extra pizza in an airtight container (or wrapped tightly in plastic wrap) and place in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Enjoy cold or reheat in the microwave. 

Freezer

If it will be a while until you are able to enjoy your leftover pizza, you can definitely store in the freezer. Be sure to place the pizza slices in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 2 months. Let the pizza thaw in the fridge overnight before reheating in the microwave. 

*You can also use a toaster oven or air fryer to reheat your pizza.
