Whenever people hear I'm on a keto diet, first they are amazed at my results (blood sugar normalized after previously needing insulin, blood pressure and cholesterol normalized, hidradenitis supporativa in remission, regained energy, and 45 lbs. lost effortlessly!). But then most people say something like, "Wow, I could never eat like that. I need my [insert carby food here]." I think this shows just how addicted to carbs (which are reduced to sugar in the body) many people are. Still, I always let them know that you can almost always find a keto version of whatever carby food you think you can't live without (which I recommend they save as a treat, rather than eating daily). For many people, this food is pizza.
Turns out, there are a lot of ways to eat pizza without a fattening crust. (Cause with keto, we aren't worried about all that cheese, unless someone has an intolerance to it - in which case they can use dairy subs.) Here are just a few you can choose from.

On Pinterest, you'll find a lot of variations for this type of pizza, but this basic recipe is a great start. This stuff is so popular, you can even buy a version in the frozen section of many grocery stores!

When I don't have a lot of time to make dinner, I throw pizza into my Instant Pot. I double this recipe for my family of four. Sometimes I also make this recipe in the oven: Layer the ingredients in a casserole dish - using cooked beef - and bake at 350 degrees until heated through and bubbly.For a quick pizza fix, using deli meat as a crust works well. Just add the toppings of your choice.
