Cheddar Cornbread Crust

  • 1-1/2 cups almond flour blanched
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • ¼ cup butter melted
  • 2 Tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 Tablespoons keto granulated sweetener (or Paleo sweetener if not low carb, such as coconut sugar; for GAPS, use honey and add it with the wet ingredients)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Keto Mexican Pizza Toppings

  • 2 cups cheddar cheese 7 to 8 ounces, grated
  • 1/2 pound chorizo bulk seasoned pork sausage, broken up and cooked in a pan
  • 1/2 cup pepperoni slices
  • 1/2 cup black olives sliced
  • 1/2 cup red salsa like store-bought pico de gallo or similar
  • 2 Tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 jalapeño sliced (optional)
  • fresh cilantro, sour cream, Cilantro Crema (see post for recipe) and avocado to garnish (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 375°. Grease a 1/4-size sheet pan (or a 9x13" casserole dish may work fine). Set aside.
  • Make Crust: In a medium bowl, mix together almond flour, sweetener, baking soda and sea salt. Add eggs, cheese, sour cream and melted butter. Stir together well.
  • Cheddar Cornbread Crust is a batter, not a dough, so it's easy to pour it right into your prepared pan. Spread batter out to cover the full surface of the pan.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  • While crust pre-bakes, stir together salsa and tomato paste in small bowl.
  • After the 10 minutes, remove crust from oven. Spread Salsa-Pizza Sauce over the surface. Top with cheese. Top with chorizo, sliced olives, pepperoni slices and optional jalapeño slices.
  • Return pizza to oven, and bake an additional 15 minutes, until cheese is bubbly all over.
  • Remove from oven, allow to rest for 5 minutes, cut into 6 or 8 equal pieces, and serve. May be garnished with fresh cilantro, sour cream, Cilantro Crema or avocado.
