I’m late to PAR-TY and maybe you are too!  There are lots ways to improvise pizza dough recipes for low carb diets.  One of the most popular methods is to use pulverized veggies like cauliflower or broccoli as a crust, but if you miss the chewy texture of doughy pizza crust like this Easy No Rise Whole Wheat Pizza Dough, then you are going to love this low carb pizza dough recipe!

One day when I’m done testing the Ketogenic Diet on myself I’ll write a whole post on what I’ve learned.  In the meantime, you can check out this guide to a keto diet and keep taste testing the delicious foods I’m eating.

This gluten-free, keto approved diet, cheesy Low Carb Pizza Dough Recipe is a game changer for anyone that limits grains!

I first learned about this recipe from my daughter, but like I mentioned, apparently it has been the rage for the low carb community for years.

Tom Naughton’s blog, Fat Head brought this recipe to the attention of health and fitness followers, but if you take a close look at his post, the original recipe is from Cooky’s Creations. Shame on Fat Head for not providing a clickable link to the original-original recipe!  Citation people!  You must cite the original source!  Gluten Free Low Carb Pizza Dough Recipe for those following a ketogenic diet. #keto #lchf | www.thefoodieaffair.com

Any-who, Fat Head is a entertaining movie about debunking the film Super Size Me theory that high-fat diets lead to heart disease.  Not true, by the way!

Both films are entertaining and if you like the geeky science behind how your body responds to nutrients, then you’ll enjoy reading the studies and articles on the Fat Head blog.

Back to PIZZA!  No yeast and no waiting for the dough to proof.  Mix almond flour, an egg, and cheese together and bake, then top with all your favorite ingredients. One slice will fill you up for hours!

    Where do you buy that rolling pin? I have just one arm and that makes it very hard to use a traditional rolling pin..
