Now you probably know that one of the first uses for FatHead dough was pizza. I've used it to make this delicious low carb white pizza, and if you haven't made this dough before, you might like to watch my video tutorial!
Another key component for this pizza is the low carb carnitas!
They're made in the slow cooker and are useful for all kinds of recipes. And I had some left over – and they were perfect for this Mexican pizza!
However, you could also make this recipe meat-free, or use your preferred cooked meat! Why not check out my full list of keto Mexican recipes to get some ideas?
How to Make a Low Carb Mexican Pizza
From one batch of dough I can make a 10″ pizza. Use a fork to dock holes in the dough to help it cook evenly. Cook in a preheated oven for 5-7 minutes, until it starts to turn light golden brown all over.
Add a layer of low carb salsa, then the carnitas over the salsa.
Sprinkle some shredded cheese over the top (I use a Mexican blend). I don't add that much due to all the cheese in the crust, but obviously feel free to add more if you would like! Return to the oven until the meat is warmed through and the cheese has melted.
Garnish with cilantro leaves, jalapeño slices, and diced avocado.
This pizza is super filling and has such a wonderful flavor. Serve it for lunch, dinner, or an appetizer or snack!
