  1. I eat low carb but pizza is one thing I miss the most. So I have to find alternatives. I can live without sweets (I actually don’t like them),can live without burgers,pasta,fries but I cannot live without pizza. It’s my biggest weakness and food craving. Whenever I used to eat almost carb free I would literally salivate over pizza in my mouth but now it’s so great to have lower carb alternatives for pizza. Now fried chicken is another food I miss eating when I’m very low carb. A great alternative (although not too much because of sodium, is Parmesan cheese). Coat your chicken in egg and some parm cheese,Italian seasonings or any seasoning you like and you get crispy chicken without all the carbs. It’s been an “Adkins diet” trick for years actually and I rarely see people talking about it. It’s super good. You don’t need all that flour and Panko crumbs for fried chicken. Also another keto trick if you like potatoes in soups and stuff is RADISHES. In soups they have the same texture and taste as a potato but are super low carb.

  2. This worked AMAZING! thank you for the recipe!
    I doubled it to make a 14" pizza, and "Pro Tip": when I put my dough down on the parchment paper, I poured two to four tablespoons of EVOO right on top of the dough
    Result: perfection and total ease!! to flatten into a beautiful round, thin crust.
    Omg, it turned out great.
    I increased the cook time to about 20 min,
    I added xanthan gum, baking powder and parmesan to the dry ingredients.
    This was a truly amazing pizza!

  3. Joe,
    This is the 4th keto pizza crust I tried. It turned out awesome. If you sprinkle some parmigiana or Asiago cheese on you paper before you roll it out, it sticks to the bottom of the crust and gives a tasty crispy crust! This is my new favorite crust.
