Best Keto Pizza Recipe

Looking for the best keto pizza recipe?


Embracing the ketogenic or low carb lifestyle requires some give and take attitude, like all other ways of eating.  The beauty of the low carb life is that people have become savvy and learned to create their favorite foods with keto compliant ingredients.

This delicious and guilt-free pepperoni pizza features a melt-in-your-mouth baked cream cheese “crust,” plus all the incredible flavor you’ve come to expect from this perennial favorite.

I'm more in love with being able to whip up a Keto pizza cheese crust more than the Pizza itself. After all, when it comes to Keto, it's never the Pizza toppings and fillings, but the crust. It feels good not having to worry about the high carb content one finds in normal Pizza recipes.

The versatile cream cheese crust recipe can be tweaked to include your favorite herbs and spices for a truly distinctive flavor. But don’t stop there! Experiment with your favorite pizza toppings for a quick and satisfying meal you can enjoy any night of the week.
