Tomato Basil Low Carb Flatbread Recipe

Heat your oven to 400° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium sized microwaveable bowl combine shredded mozzarella, almond flour, salt and spicy spaghetti seasoning. Mix well, then add cubed cream cheese. Microwave for 45 seconds, stir, microwave for an additional 20 seconds. Mix well, then add an egg. Knead the egg into the dough until the egg has been fully absorbed.

Pour some olive oil onto the parchment and using your hands, spread the olive oil around the parchment. Dump the dough onto the parchment and using your hands, push the dough out into a flatbread shape. It should be lumpy and bumpy to give it that flatbread texture.

Top with fresh basil leaves and tomato slices then bake for 15-18 minutes, until the edges have browned.

Expert Tips

  1. Don’t have spicy spaghetti seasoning? Replace with Italian seasoning instead.
  2. If the mozzarella hasn’t completely melted, microwave in 15 second increments until is has fully melted.
  3. Using your hands to spread the olive oil around the parchment paper makes it easier to work with the dough.

Balsamic Olive Oil Dip

Balsamic Olive Oil Dip has always been a staple in my house, ever since I was a child. My dad made it all the time! Tomato Basil Low Carb Flatbread is absolutely perfect for this dip. Does anything pair better with balsamic than fresh basil? Can’t think of anything… besides maybe almonds and chocolate?

I like to use a balsamic vinegar and olive oil dipping plate because it’s just so pretty when the balsamic and olive oil separate! Generally I do a 1 part balsamic vinegar to 2 parts olive oil. Once they have been added to the plate, I sprinkle in salt and whatever herbs I’m feelin’ at the moment; usually basil, thyme, rosemary, garlic, oregano or a combination of these.

I LOVE this 90 Second Keto Bread recipe and use it multiple times weekly. It takes 5 minutes from start to finish to have an epic sandwich… but sometimes you just need a grilled panini, am I right? Well this Tomato Basil Low Carb Flatbread is another option that takes a little longer but is sooooo dang delicious!

After the Low Carb Flatbread is finished baking, cut into four squares. Each recipe will make two large sandwiches. Spread your condiments such as mayo on each side of bread and sandwich with whatever goods you want such as cheese, meats and veggies. Grill for a few minutes and dive in!
