Spinach, Feta and Kalmata Olive Keto Pizza: A review of King Arthur Low Carb Wheat Pizza Crust

 


I've posted various recipes for keto and low-carb pizza over the past 15 years or so, and although I really liked a couple of them, I had purchased the Keto Wheat Pizza Crust Mix by King Arthur, and had it in the pantry, so I thought I'd give it a try. 

If you have seen this on your local retailer shelves - consider yourself lucky!  Out of the three (3) main stores where I do my grocery shopping, only one of them carries it - and not all the time.  (I found it at Publix although I checked and it's available online through Amazon too!)

King Arthur Baking Keto Pizza Crust Mix 


It was very, very good.  Now, if you are brand brand new to low carb eating or keto and you expect keto 'anything' bread related to taste like wheat bread, you might be inclined to balk and complain.  Because wheat is the source of the carbs, the main ingredient is usually vital wheat gluten, which does have its own taste.  If you've been doing keto or low carb for awhile and miss breads... you will probably love it.  This is very mild flavored, and once you get your toppings on it, it's not really much different than regular wheat flour crusts.  When I made ours (the one above) as well as a second one pepperoni for my husband, another family member stopped by and had 2 slices.  She didn't know it was keto - and couldn't tell. 

The recipe...  I've made this for so many years, I never actually use a recipe and just make it throwing together ingredients as I know I like.  It's been posted numerous times on An American Housewife, but here is one of them way back in September of 2011!   

NOTES:  I don't always pre-bake the crust first (although it's crispier and firmer if you do), and I top everything at once, including the spinach.  I don't like sun-dried tomatoes so I never use them; but it's delicious if you just add a couple tablespoons of pizza sauce smeared or dropped over the mayo/feta/garlic mixture.  Amounts can be changed if you want less or more garlic, feta, etc.  Play with it.  Make it your own.

Greek Pizza or Spinach, Feta and Kalamata Olive Pizza

1/2 c mayonnaise
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 c crumbled feta cheese
1 - 12 inch pre-baked pizza crust
1/2 c oil packed sun dried tomatoes
olive oil (or oil from the sun dried tomatoes)
1/4 pitted Kalamata olives,, chopped or sliced
1 t dried oregano
2 cups baby spinach leaves, washed and dry
1/2 small red onion, sliced into rings

Heat oven to 450.  Mix the mayonnaise with garlic and 1/2 cup feta.  Spread this over your pizza crust.  Top with tomatoes, olives and oregano.  Bake until heated through.  Toss the spinach and onion with about 1 tablespoon olive oil or if you have it - oil from the sun dried tomatoes.  Tops the pizza with the spinach mixture and the rest of the 1/2 cup feta.  Return to the oven for about 3 minutes.   Slice and serve!
