Making a Healthier Pizza
Pizza can be one of the worst foods you can choose when it comes to weight loss and health, but it can also be one of the best. You can make your own healthier pizza with low-carb crusts and smart toppings.
“Greasy” may be a common word used to describe pizza, but did you know that each slice has more than 30 grams of carbohydrates? That means a single slice may have more carbohydrates than your daily limit on a keto diet! Plus, who stops at a single slice?!
Using a low-carb crust as your base can slash the carbohydrates in your pizza. That means you may be able to have two or more slices, or enough to get full and satisfied, without going over your carb limits.
The Bariatricpal Store has some delicious and easy choices for Low-Carb Pizza Crust. You can blend the mix with a few other ingredients and bake the crust halfway. Then add your sauce and other toppings and finish baking the pizza. Just check the package for the exact ingredients, temperature, and time recommendations.
