Garlic Parmesan Low Carb Flatbread

Low Carb Garlic Parmesan Flatbread

I’ve really been trying to approximate garlic breadsticks lately without the use of almond flour (for a few reasons – allergies, price, the impact almond growing has on the environment…), and after a few nights in a row of just okay results, this little low carb flatbread gem came to fruition! It’s grain free, gluten free, nut free and low carb (but most importantly, delicious).

To make this low carb flatbread even more delicious, you can try drizzling a little olive oil, or melted butter on top. Alternatively, you could also add shredded mozzarella, asiago or provolone in the last five minutes of baking, instead of sprinkling more parmesan. Garnish with oregano or parsley to add some flare and flavor. You will not be disappointed!

This may not be the LCHF garlic bread of your dreams, but it’s pretty reasonable, calorie-wise (which means you can eat at least half a batch without any guilt…), and really easy to make. It’s also really good, reheated. It gets crispier and basically becomes crackers.

Notes on baking low carb flatbread:

  • If you sub mozzarella for the parmesan cheese in the main recipe, these become chewier and a little gooier – YUM!
  • Try sprinkling oregano, or parsley or red pepper flakes on top of this once it comes out of the oven – like you would at a pizza shop!
  • Topping this with mozzarella cheese elevates these to divinity (that might be slightly overstating things).
  • Why not make a low carb flatbread pesto pizza? Exactly, there IS no reason not to! 😉
  • I’m going to try to experiment with making “pizza muffins” with this recipe – baking the dough in muffin cups with sauce and cheese on top. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!
  • This low carb flatbread make an incredible panini base, as well as bread for grilled cheese.

  1. Hi glad I found your website! I’m definitely interested in a vegetarian keto diet. I’m looking for a recipe for a flatbread I can make on the stove like an Indian flatbread? Thanks

    1. Hi Lisa! Glad you’re enjoying the site! I’ve been trying to make a successful naan-like flatbread for a while, and will definitely let you know when I do!

    1. Hey there, this is a great question! You definitely can, but the ratio won’t be the same, as almond flour doesn’t absorb as much liquid as coconut flour. You’ll likely want to double the almond flour, and then add in a little more until the consistency is right. 🙂

  2. Thanks for posting this recipe, Liz! I made it for my husband today & it was quick, easy & delicious! I will definitely make it again. I had to guess on the pan size needed to make it the right thickness, but I guessed right with an 8″ x 9″. Thanks again!

  3. Is this too soft to use as a pizza crust? Would you bake it the full time and then add toppings? Thanks!
