Keto Spicy Pepperoni Pizza

Keto Spicy Pepperoni Pizza

While this keto spicy pepperoni pizza is anything but classic, it still has a classic pepperoni pizza flare. The unmistakable savory flavor of pepperoni is all you need. However, the spicy jalapenos and hidden cayenne powder, really kicks the taste of this keto spicy pepperoni pizza up a notch!

As a child, we always had pizza night on Thursday. However, as an adult pizza night sounds like a good idea every night! Especially when it’s one of our semi-healthy keto low carb pizza recipes like keto salami pizza, keto bbq chicken pizza or three meat keto pizza.

This keto spicy pepperoni pizza is made in 3-steps including (1) the crust, (2) the sauce, and (3) the toppings. The crust starts with a basic almond flour cheese blend. With the crust being an almond flour cheese blend, this pizza is approved for the keto diet, low carb diet, and diabetic diet to reverse type 2 diabetes without medication.  Next, things are kicked up a notch with a generous amount of cayenne pepper powder being added to the tomato sauce. And lastly, the classic cheese and pepperoni are added along with the less classic spicy jalapeno slices.

I used pickled jalapeno slices because it is what I had in the fridge. However, if you are a brave and true jalapeno fan you can certainly add freshly sliced jalapenos to this keto spicy pepperoni pizza. It will definitely add a memorably fresh jalapeno pizza flare with a lot more spice. So, let’s get to it.
