How To Make Keto Pizza

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and pour olive oil into bottom of 8 inch cast iron skillet swirling to coat bottom of skillet.
  2. Start layering zucchini slices into bottom of skillet. When one layer covers the bottom of the skillet, season zucchini slices with a pinch of salt, oregano and pepper. Continue this same method until all of your zucchini slices have been used. Spoon pizza sauce over zucchini slices then top even with shredded mozzarella cheese. Top with quartered pepperoni slices and bake for 25-30 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and melted. Remove from oven and serve hot by spooning onto serving plates. This pizza is not meant to cut into wedges. Also note, be cautious of the hot skillet handle. The cast iron skillet stays very hot for quite a long time.

What Is A Keto Diet?

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate, low sugar diet. This reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis. The Keto diet can help you lose weight and improve your health. When starting a new diet, always consult with your doctor.
