Rest the dough for 10 minutes at the refrigerator

Divide the rested dough into 4 equal parts. Then using a pasta machine, roll each dough into stage 5 – 6 setting on the pasta machine

Rest the rolled dough back in the refrigerator for another 10 minutes

* For Pastry Batter
On a small bowl, combine Keto-Flour with butter using spatula, until a rough batter formed. Add the coconut oil and mix again until completely combines

Rest the batter for 10 minutes at the refrigerator

* For Crozza Sauce
On a small sauce pan, melt butter using low to medium heat, then sautee the diced salamis until almost fully cooked. Add cream cheese, then followed by tomato puree and the rest of the sauce seasoning. Cook until the sauce thickens, set aside

* Assemble
On a silicone pad, seam each end of the rolled dough forming a long sheet, then spread the pastry batter evenly over the sheet

Fold the dough from the longest side forming a very long rope. Fold the rope from one side into the other side, forming a large spiral shape by seaming the end beneath the dough

Remove the spiral dough onto a round greased baking pan or a Pizza Stone

Flatten the dough using a roller pin, by keeping the round pizza shape maintained. The dough should be rolled into 1,5x wider from its original size, then rest the dough in a warm spot for 20 – 30 minutes until it rise

Preheat the oven into 300F

Bake the risen dough for 10 – 15 minutes until the edge has just starting to brown, then remove the half baked crust out from the oven

Spread the ricotta cheese thinly over the crust, then spread the cooked Crozza sauce evenly. Sprinkle the grated mozzarella cheese, then arrange the salamis to cover almost all of the surface neatly

Bake again for another 15 – 20 minutes, until the crust edges are completely browned and the salamis are cooked
