Keto Pepperoni Pizza

A simple pizza fix without the carbs! It has everything you want in a regular pizza –tomato sauce, pepperoni and cheese deliciousness!

My family enjoys pizza for dinner once in a while. If it’s not Pizza Hut or Dominos, it’ll be Hells’, Sals or Pizza Club. Since I’m on a Keto diet, I won’t be able to enjoy those delicious pizzas with my family anymore unless I make my own Keto Pepperoni Pizza. It’s quite easy to make without the guilt. It just requires preparation.
