No Crust Pizza Ingredients
Literally, all you need to throw together a delicious no crust pizza, is 1 ingredient: CHEESE!
The rest is all extra credit. I’ll share some tasty options below, but I always add:
- Italian seasoning
Now, back to the cheese. It’s important to use the right kind of cheese for your crustless pizza vision to come to life...
When making a traditionally-flavored Italian crustless pizza, I go for good ol’ shredded mozzarella.
Feel free to switch the cheese to suite your cravings, just be sure they have a hard and dry texture, and that they melt easily.
Stay away from super crumbly or soft offerings like Brie, feta and blue cheeses, as they’ll melt and crumble before reaching that delightful crispy texture you seek.
How to Make Crustless Pizza
Making crustless pizza perfection is WAY easier than you’d think! Here’s all you need to know:
GRAB YOUR TOOLS.
The most important piece of advice here is to use a nonstick pan. I use my trusty cast iron skillet, as it’s extremely seasoned (therefore it passes the nonstick test), and it distributes the heat evenly and predictably for an all-around crisp crustless pizza.
Sprinkle cheese into the pan, followed by whatever toppings you’re adding.
Be sure to add you cheese in a thin and even layer to maximize crispness.
Cover the pan with a glass glass lid, and cook over medium heat. Continue to cook, until you see the cheese has completely melted, and the edges of the pizza look golden and crisp — should take around 8 minutes.
Remove your crustless pizza from the heat. Allow it to cool in the pan, without the lid until it crisps up nicely. Once cool, slice it, dip it, and enjoy!

Low Carb Pizza Crust Topping Ideas
Your low carb pizza crust, your rules!
Add whatever toppings you’re craving, however, keep in mind that your pizza toppings won’t cook as traditional pizza toppings would, since we aren’t baking this crustless pizza in the oven (we’re just melting the cheese over the stove).
Considering that, here are some tasty options to upgrade your crustless pizza:
- Meats: Pepperoni, cooked sausage, low carb meatballs, shredded chicken.
- Sauteed low carb vegetables: onions, mushrooms and bell peppers are my personal faves.
- Extras: olives, pepperoncinis, jalapenos, fresh basil — whatever you love on pizza, you’ll love on this crustless pizza.
