Ingredients laid out in individual bowl - ground beef, cheese, lettuce, sauce, onions, pickles, sesame seeds.

Ingredients Notes

  • Fathead dough: The crust for this keto Big Mac pizza is a pretty standard cheese and almond flour based fathead dough. If you are looking for a nut free pizza crust, they my Keto Nut Free Pizza Crust Recipe

  • Ground beef: What would a Big Mac be without the beef? Be sure to drain the excess grease after cooking so that you do not end up with a greasy pizza. (More Keto Ground Beef Recipes)

  • Burger sauce: I may be a little biased, but I think my Homemade “Not So Secret” Burger Sauce Recipe beats Big Mac sauce any day of the week.

  • Romaine lettuce: I like to use romaine because it adds a nice crunch, but you could also use iceberg lettuce.

  • Cheese: For this Big Mac keto pizza, I used a combination of mozzarella cheese and sharp cheddar cheese. You can really use any cheeses you prefer. It is also delicious with slices of American cheese. You can even drizzle some of this Keto Cheese Sauce over top.

  • Pickles: You can use sliced dill pickle chips, dill pickle relish, or chopped dill pickles.

  • Onions: This recipe calls for white onion. If you do not have any onions, you can also use 1 teaspoon of onion powder, or 1 tablespoon of dried minced onion.

  • Sesame seeds: The sesame seeds give you some of the flavor that you would get from the hamburger bun.

Step by Step Instructions

How to Make Keto Pizza Dough

STEP 1: Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large microwave safe mixing bowl, combine mozzarella and cream cheese. Microwave for 1 minute.

STEP 2: Remove from microwave and stir to combine. Return to microwave for 1 additional minute.

STEP 3: To the mixing bowl, add the egg, almond flour, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Mix until all ingredients are well incorporated. (It will be stiff and hard to mix)

STEP 4: Line a 10-inch pizza pan with parchment paper. Spread the “dough” into a thin but even layer, covering the pizza pan. If the dough gets too stringy and unworkable, simply put it back in the microwave for 1 minute to soften.

STEP 5: Bake on the middle rack for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Watch it to make sure that it does not bubble up. Use a toothpick to pop any bubbles, if necessary.

STEP 6: Spread ½ cup of the burger sauce across the baked pizza crust. Layer on half of the cheese.

STEP 7: In a skillet, over medium heat, combine the ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Sauté until the ground beef is cooked through and the onions are soft. Drain any excess grease. Spread the cooked beef in an even layer across the top of the cheese, top with remaining cheese. Reduce the oven heat to 375°F. Bake the pizza for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and melted.

STEP 8: Top the pizza with lettuce and pickle slices. Drizzle over some of the remaining burger sauce and sprinkle on the sesame seeds. Slice into 8 slices.

  • Nut free: For a nut free pizza crust, make it with my Nut Free Keto Pizza Dough.
