Low Carb Pizza – Turkey Crust Meatza 

Recipe Ketogasm

Since then, I’ve tweaked a few things, played around the ratios, cooking vessels, and a variety of toppings. I prefer to use a cast-iron skillet to get a nice crunch on the crust. Cast-iron skillets get super hot and stay that way, which is great for searing meat. Since your crust is made of meat and cheese, the meat is seared nicely while the cheese crisps up.

Low Carb Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Recipe 730 Sage Street

I have two favorite foods, pizza, and enchiladas. If they were the only food available, I could eat them both everyday and be happy. But when you follow a low carb diet, those are two types of foods that are notoriously full of carbs.

Recipe Ruled.Me

Instead of using carb-loaded pasta as a base, we use steamed cauliflower. Not a cauliflower fan? Try the recipe anyway. It doesn’t taste one bit like cauliflower. Instead, it’s more like macaroni and cheese meets pepperoni pizza. The sauce is rich and creamy with notes of tomato, garlic, basil and oregano. The red pepper flakes add just a little bit of heat and complexity. Add in layers of pepperoni and gooey mozzarella cheese, and this recipe becomes food nirvana.

Instant Pot Smothered Pork Chops

Recipe Ruled.Me

The sesame almond zoodle bowl is the perfect vehicle for this amazing sauce.

Recipe Ruled.Me

Chicken Tikka Masala is a super delicious and flavorful curry that you can now make keto! You can serve this on it’s own and it’s an amazing dish, though you can pair it with some sides to bulk it up in a sense. I decided to serve this with caulfilower rice, with a 1/6 serving per person.
