Never giving up PIZZA

Start any diet and the first thing people start thinking is what they have to give up FOREVER. The truth is that it’s not a lifestyle if you have to give up something that you love forever.

The keto diet is not about deprivation…it could never be my lifestyle if I had to give up pizza forever. Thank goodness for Fathead Pizza. The dough is so versatile so you can have all your favorites without missing out. It all starts with the dough. The you add the toppings of choice and po it in the oven.

The technique

Once you have the dough made you just add the toppings and slide it into the oven for 10 minutes. The only special thing you need is parchment paper.
