I can’t claim to be doing Keto, but I do try to limit my carbs. I try to save carb counts for the things I enjoy most like the odd slice of sprouted grain bread, the occasional treat like Josiah’s amazing banana cake, fresh fruit, and wine!!
Some of the things I really love are quite high in useless carbs and one of those things is pizza!!! I still want pizza and I have tried numerous lower-carb versions of crust, but so far, this has been my absolute favourite.
I found the recipe, where else, but on Pinterest. Who ever invented Pinterest will forever have my eternal gratitude and respect. Nothing short of brilliant!!! Gone are the days when I had to have passwords and accounts on numerous recipe sites, and trying to remember which site the recipe I was wanting to make, had been found on.
Coconut flour is quickly becoming a favourite as well. While almond flour is frequently used for lower carb recipes, I find coconut flour to be much more economical, easier to digest, nutritious, and I love the flavour.
“Coconut flour is a gluten-free flour made solely from coconuts. Rich in fiber and MCTs, it may promote stable blood sugar, good digestion, and heart health. It may also boost weight loss and fight some infections. Plus, it’s delicious and versatile, making it a smart choice when choosing flour alternatives.”https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/coconut-flour#what-it-is
