Keto-Friendly Pizza Recipe

By Jessica Melgoza - September 19, 2018


On Tuesday afternoon I got together with my cousin and we spent the afternoon catching up on life, creating content for our blogs, and cooking this delicious keto-friendly pizza! If you have no idea what 'keto' [a.k.a. ketogenic diet] means, no worries...I didn't either until just yesterday. While catching up, my cousin mentioned that she's been on the ketogentic diet for almost three weeks now and during that time she's had to introduce new recipes into her life that abide by her new lifestyle. Out of those recipes this pizza recipe was one she shared with me so today I'm sharing it with you.

This recipe is simple to prepare and takes minimal time to cook; which is perfect if you're short on time. Not only does this pizza contain way less carbs than traditional pizza but it tastes great too! I hope you give this recipe a try if you do please let me know your thoughts in the comments. Until next time friends, take care!
