About 6 months after Joe started keto, I asked him what food he missed the most and his answer was Pizza, he absolutely loved eating all kinds of pizza. I guess thats the New Yorker in him because I just didn’t get it. Because Joe loves pizza so much, he’s always trying to find ways to make it at home. We’ve made fat head crusts, cauliflower crusts and chicken crusts but I think this recipe he came up with is a home run. Other than the chicken crust pizza, this one is the lowest in carbs and its very nutritious.
The key to the crust is the pork rinds, they give the crust the crunch that it needs. Recently we found out about Pork Clouds Pork Panko and using them makes it so much easier since you don’t have to be bothered grinding up all your pork rinds.
