Delicious evidence that adopting a low-carb diet does not need giving up your favorite meals is these Keto Fathead Pizza Pockets.
Pizza crinkles. Calzones. enormous pizza rolls Whatever you choose to call them, they are delectable.
Naturally, I’ve long been a big proponent of preparing low-carb pizzas:
Broccoli crust pizza
Pizza with chicken crust
Pizza with Pork Ribs
Backstory: When we were students, my husband Joe and I resided in a dorm with a dining hall that only offered pizza on Friday nights.
And it wasn’t the same old, boring pizza they always served.
This Friday Night recipe must have had something added because it was incredible. There were occasions when you could anticipate a 45-minute wait to obtain yours. But even so, we succeeded. Each and every Friday. We have continued the Friday Night Pizza custom, which had even more significance after we became keto. I want to be absolutely clear that adopting low carb does not include giving up pizza or growing tired of the same old stuff.
The pizza tastes great. Pizza with stuffing is much better.
This recipe gives the typical fathead dough you’re probably familiar with a little twist.
The key component? It employs yeast! And that really does matter!
I adore that you may top these lovelies with any of your preferences before dipping them in your preferred sauce.
The options are genuinely limitless.
