Easy Weeknight Keto Pizza
I love this recipe and I think you will too! In less time than it would take for delivery, you can have a home made, keto friendly, Gluten Free pizza ready for dinner. Unlike many recipes for Keto Pizza, this one does not use a Cauliflower Crust, instead using a combination of baked Cream Cheese, Eggs and Parmesan. Lay out a selection of toppings, and let everyone design their own.
Start by making your “crust” and getting it into the oven to bake. It needs to cool before you put the toppings and then heat again to melt the oooey, gooey cheese! While the “crust” is baking, prepare the toppings you want to use and lay them out on a tray.
When the crust has cooked and cooled, add desired toppings, and place back into the oven for 5 minutes or until cheese on top is melted. That’s it !!!
