Low Carb Pizza Crust

The very best low carb, high protein pizza crust around! You can customize the toppings to your liking and make this crust your very own.



80 g Trader Joe’s Buttermilk Protein Pancake Mix

135 g Fage nonfat Greek yogurt

1 tsp Italian seasoning blend

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees
  2. In a medium sized bowl mix together the Trader Joe’s buttermilk protein pancake mix, Italian seasoning, baking powder and salt.
  3. Once all of the dry ingredients are well combined, add the non-fat Greek yogurt and mix well until you’ve got a doughy consistency. 
  4. Place your dough on a sheet of wax paper so that it does not stick while rolling it out.
  5. Place another sheet of wax paper on top of the dough. Using a rolling pin or your hands, roll your dough into your desired crust size. 
  6. Carefully transfer the dough onto a parchment paper lined pizza pan. 
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes depending on desired crispiness.
  8. Remove from oven, add sauce and toppings and cheese. Bake for another 5-7 minutes or until your cheese is melted.
  9. Remove from oven, let cool 3-5 minutes, slice, and serve.


I like to use wax paper or parchment paper when rolling the dough because it prevents the dough from sticking to the surface that you’re working on. With this method I don’t need to use any additional pancake mix or flour.

***Please note that the nutrition is for the pizza crust alone, not including any toppings.

Using a pizza pan or stone does make the crust crispier but is not at all necessary. I have made this on a regular baking sheet without any issues.
