Low Carb Pepperoni Pizza Chicken
Having recently jumped on the Keto train I’ve been searching high and low for recipes that are keto friendly. For the most part, I’ve been doing a good job at staying low carb but also eating foods that I love. The one exception has been pizza. Like most people, I love pizza. I could probably eat pizza for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week and not get sick of it. Well, probably not but it’s worth dreaming about.
Pizza is not very low-carb, keto friendly. The main ingredient is crust. So with my cravings for pizza at an all time high I knew there had to be a low carb pizza recipe out there. I started seeing all sorts of recipes that called for thinly sliced chicken as the “crust”. And that’s when it hit me. Pepperoni Pizza Chicken. It sounds weird, but it tastes like heaven in your mouth.
