Low Carb Alfredo Sauce

I wanted a quick dinner and knew I could make a pizza quickly and easily thanks to George Stella’s low carb flaxseed meal crust. But I should avoid tomatoes in a keto lifestyle (too many sugars), so what kind of pizza to make??



Alfredo sauce can be pretty quick to prepare, even with shredding the cheese myself. I did a short cheat on this sauce because I was out of regular block-style Parmesan cheese and wanted the extra flavor a second cheese would add. 

When adding the Romano (or Parmesan if you use shredded Parmesan), I like to shred it right over the saucepan using a small handheld grater. If you have trouble discerning how much cheese you just shredded, then by all means shred it over a plate on the counter to measure. Just know this is a recipe where you cannot have too much cheese. It’s unpossible.

Low Carb Alfredo Sauce

Makes roughly 1 1/2 cups sauce. Enough to cover 1 pizza crust using all of the flaxseed meal crust dough.


Note: all amounts below are estimates because I just dumped things in as I went.

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 tbsp Johnny’s garlic bread seasoning
  • 1 cup finely shredded Pecorino Romano cheese (roughly 4 oz block)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (cheater cheater pumpkin eater)
  • Salt to taste


  1. Melt butter in saucepan. Add seasoning.
  2. Add cream and stir. Heat about 2 mins.
  3. Add both cheeses and stir well to melt/combine. 
  4. Taste and add salt to taste.
