Eat this // Zucchini Crusted Pizza

IMG_5660Pizza is a staple in our house, so when we went keto it was a non-negotiable that we would still eat it. It was just going to have to be my splurge item. BUT with this recipe it doesn’t have to be…BEST NEWS EVER! We have tried the cauliflower crusts and really enjoyed them and this one is just as tasty. The crust is made with almond flour, egg, cheese, and ZUCCHINI so you don’t have to worry about all those carbs that come from a traditional pizza crust.

John and I both really liked this recipe, it was so satisfying! I am excited to try it with other toppings too (hello buffalo chicken zucchini pizza!!).
