Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, this savory, carnivore, pork-based pizza crust is entirely animal.

Who misses SAD pizza? I sure do.

Thick, crunchy crust with a doughy center. Fat layer of melted cheese. Sauce and topping combos galore. Fire-roasted and charred. Yum yum yum.

Today, I present you with this pizza crust that’s entirely animal. If you no longer do SAD pizza crust, this recipe was made to help you satisfy your pizza cravings.

It’s crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, and the texture is surprisingly similar to SAD pizza crust.

You can form the dough like I did and make a thick crust, or do flatbread pizzas or even thin crust if you prefer. Adding Italian seasoning is optional, but if you tolerate it, I so recommend it! It packs a punch and makes you feel like you’re eating something you probably shouldn’t be.

Tomorrow I’ll be posting a recipe for a full-on pizza (carnivore-friendly!) with all of the bells and whistles, so stay tuned for that. For now, enjoy this crust.

How to make Dairy-Free Carnivore Pizza Crust

Start the oven.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Make the dough.

In a blender or food processor, crush the pork rinds to a fine powder. Set the pork rind powder aside.

Melt the ghee on your stovetop.

In a blender, mix the raw ground chicken, melted ghee, and eggs until a smooth paste forms.

Add the paste to a mixing bowl. Fold in the pork rind powder, sea salt, and Italian seasoning (if using) to form a dough. It should be thick and dense.

Transfer the dough to a pizza stone or baking sheet on top of parchment paper.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This dough requires parchment paper. It will stick to the baking sheet or pizza stone without it.

Form the dough into your preferred pizza shape. I made a 12-inch circle with mine, then started in the center and pushed the dough outward, thinning out the bottom and forming a thick crust. You could also do flatbread pizzas or thin crust if you prefer.

Bake the pizza crust.

Once you have formed your crust, bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 375 degrees.

Add toppings.

Top with pizza toppings (cheese, veggies, cooked meat, etc.) as you would with a regular naked crust. It’s okay to put the crust back in the oven (with the toppings) for 10-15 minutes to re-heat the toppings and/or melt the cheese.

This crust is best served fresh, although it will last in the fridge for 3-4 days in an airtight container. Enjoy!
