Chicken Pizza Crust
As a truthful person, I won’t lie… A keto pizza with a chicken crust does not taste like pizza with a bread-like crust. But it is tasty and my kids never turn it down.
It’s more of a fork and knife dinner instead of a pick-up-a-slice-and-nosh kind of meal. Think of it like portobello pizzas. They’re absolutely tasty in their pizza-ness without actually being pizza. In any case, my family loves it!
