NEW RECIPE VIDEO: Pork Rind Pizza Crust (Dairy Free and Dairy Full)

If someone told me years ago that I’d use crushed up pork rinds in place of gluten free flours to make a low carb pizza, I’d tell that someone to go lay themselves some eggs. What a difference 9 years of low carb podcasting and two cookbooks can make.

This recipe originally appears in my second book, Eat Happy Too. I’ve made a few tweaks for clarity in this video, but it’s pretty much the exact recipe, made two ways so everyone gets to enjoy their pizza.

This recipe for Pork Rind Pizza Crust can be made full of dairy or without dairy. This is the time I will remind everyone that eggs are not dairy.

Okay, now that we’ve got that out of the way, onto the recipe post and accompanying video. I won’t type up all of the tips and tricks in the video, but here are some links to find some of the dairy free brands mentioned:

Kite Hill Dairy Free Cream Cheese (I like the one with chives), Violife Grated Dairy Free Mozzarella, Parmela Dairy Free Cheese.

Plus, remember to use pork rinds that have no added flavors or chemicals. You want plain pork rinds. I like Epic brand. Or the pre-crushed jars of Pork Panko.

  • I’ve tried this twice and both times the crust stuck to the foil that I had sprayed w/ olive oil. I had to toss away both. Any suggestions?

    • as mentioned in the instructions and in the video, you must use nonstick foil, not regular foil. Or you can use parchment paper!

  • Hello! Is it okay if the pork rinds are salted? Also, your written recipe calls for an egg, but the video doesn’t. I’m also allergic to egg, could I sub that with porcine gelatin or collagen?
    You are entertaining, thank you for a dairy free recipe that isn’t vegan.

    • yes you can for sure omit the egg and use collagen/knox gelatin!!
