Keto Pizza Casserole
When I first started following a low carb, ketogenic lifestyle, I refused to give up the foods that I loved. I just knew that I would not be successful with my weight loss if I took all the foods I loved off the table. The second I tell myself that I can’t have something, it becomes my sole focus. Therefore, my only option was to get creative and recreate some of my favorite dishes into a template that worked for me and fit into my new lifestyle change.
I went straight to work creating low carb pizza variations, low carb and gluten free mac and cheese, low carb potato substitutions etc. It made staying on track a lot easier and I never felt deprived. Let’s just say that this mentality has resulted in a lot of pizza recipes on my site. Some of my favorites are the Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza, Pizza Stuffed Peppers, Pepperoni Pizza Pinwheels and the Supreme Pizza Frittata. YES, even pizza for breakfast!! Why not?
