1. Get low-carb tortillas, cut them into hearts, and pre-bake them.
The key to keeping the crust on this pizza low-carb is to score low-carb tortillas. You can usually find it in either the deli, Mexican or bread aisle section depending on the store.It is also low carb and keto friendly pantry. A staple in , you can take it with you as a bread substitute, and it’s perfect for low-carb tacos, quesadillas, or enchiladas.
Even if you’re not good at cutting round tortillas into heart shapes, it’s not too difficult. Starting at the bottom of the heart first, with a small sharp knife he cuts off two slices from the tortilla, making a V shape. At this point, the tortilla should be shaped like his ice cream cone. Next, make a small inverted triangle cut in the top and round the top of the heart with a knife to form the top of the heart.
When you’re satisfied, bake the tortillas in a 325-degree oven for about 10 minutes until crisp. This gives the pizza a crispy, crunchy base. Let it cool for a few minutes and it will continue to set, creating a thin, crispy, low-carb crust that’s perfect for pizza.
2. Make unsweetened pizza and tomato sauce
T.Tomato sauces and pizza sauces generally contain more carbohydrates than you might think. White sugar is often added to tomato-based sauces to add flavor and cut the sourness. Look for sugar-free sauces. Serving sizes are usually about 1/2 cup, but a few tablespoons per tortilla pizza should suffice. Keep that in mind when reading the label. I also like to sprinkle a little parmesan cheese and drizzle a little olive oil over the sauce.
3. Show your love and make a pepperoni heart
The heart-shaped pepperoni slices on this low-carb pizza are cute and easy.just use Small metal heart-shaped cookie cutter Punch out a perfect heart shape.Use thinly sliced pepperoni from a small bag at the supermarket instead of sticks which makes it more difficult to work with. Vegan Veggie Pepperoni would be great too.
4. Don’t forget the cheese!
I made a pizza with whole milk mozzarella cheese. You can shred it yourself or buy a bag of pre-shredded mozzarella for even faster preparation. Some varieties in the store may contain other Italian cheeses such as Parmesan or Asiago, which can add even more cheese flavor.
5. Add Pepperoni Hearts and Other Toppings
Add as many toppings as you like, along with the pepperoni hearts.
6. Get ready to bake!
These pizzas are baked in a 375°F oven for about 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.we baked in a frying pan But the top plate works fine. I have made these tortilla pizzas many times and absolutely love them, but I have found that they tend to brown too much if the edges of the tortilla are not wrapped. Wrap in a small piece of 2 inch wide aluminum foil. This way the pizza stays absolutely perfect.
7. Enjoy a heart-shaped pizza with low sugar! They are perfect for Valentine’s Day!

Preparation of tortillas
Cut both tortillas into heart shapes (optional). Using a sharp knife, first cut each bottom side of the heart into a V shape. Then cut the top hollow of the heart and finish by rounding her two parts on the top of the heart. Then he bakes the tortillas at 325°F until they’re just barely touchable. About 10-12 minutes.
Then bake the tortillas at 325°F until firm. About 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and raise temperature he to 375°F. Allow tortillas to cool for 2 minutes. Top with a few tablespoons of pizza sauce and spread it around the edges of the tortilla. If you like a thicker crust, don’t spread the pizza sauce all the way to the edges.
Drizzle a little olive oil over the sauce and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if desired. Then spread a handful of shredded mozzarella evenly over the sauce. Add heart-shaped pepperoni or other pizza toppings.
Wrap edges (crust) of tortilla pizza in thin foil about 2 inches wide to prevent edges from burning. Place pizza on a baking sheet, large skillet, or pizza stone. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melted and slightly bubbly. Remove from oven and serve immediately. fun!
