PIZZA!!! I LOVE PIZZA!!! Keto approved Fathead Pizza with Leftover Chicken Pesto Rollup? Drool worthy. I am clearly obsessed with this fathead pizza; I make it at least once a week and enjoy every bite, every time.
The other day I happened to have leftover Chicken Pesto Rollup (I know. Crazy right?) and decided to make it the star of the fathead pizza show! Bacon was added alongside some flavourful shallots and BOOM. Match made in heaven.
How to make Fathead Pizza with Leftover Chicken Pesto Rollup
I love the simplicity of this recipe and how little time it takes from start to finish!
Follow the recipe for Fathead Pizza Crust and once you have your dough in the oven you can prep your topping ingredients. Fry the bacon, grate your mozzarella (I usually grate an entire 350g ball of mozzarella to split between the dough and the toppings) and slice the Chicken Pesto Rollup and shallots.
When it’s time to add your toppings start by spreading your choice of sugar free pizza sauce all over the crust. Cover with the mozzarella, sliced chicken, bacon and shallots. Continue to bake as per the Fathead Pizza Crust instructions.
Low Carb Pizza Sauce
I am so grateful for my discovery of Rao’s Pizza Sauce. When you make pizza weekly it’s pretty great having a delicious sauce on hand that’s low carb! Making pizza sauce is pretty simple, but with the chaos of September going on all around us, homemade pizza sauce is just not happening.
Rao’s is only 2 g net carbs per 1/3 of a cup and can be found in most grocery stores!
Chicken Pesto Rollup
This has been a personal favourite dish since I created it a few years back. I fell hard for the moist chicken and pesto cheddar flavour. There are loads of dishes that can be paired with this beauty and of course you can load your pizza with it!
Chicken Pesto Rollup is very easy to make. Start with some skinless boneless chicken breasts and flatten with a mallet. Load the underside of each breast with pesto and aged white cheddar cheese then roll them up. Bake for 30 minutes!
Is pizza low carb?
Nope, regular pizza is far from low carb because of the wheat flour crust. The crust in this recipe is made from almond flour, cheese, egg and spices which makes this fathead pizza crust low carb! Awesome!
Is almond flour good for keto?
Almond flour is a great way to replace wheat flour. Not only is it crazy low in carbs, almond flour is also packed with protein, healthy fats and countless nutrients!
The trouble with using different flours like almond flour or coconut flour? They can’t just replace wheat flour in recipes. You’ll need to play around with extra rising agents like baking powder and eggs which can be a bit of a headache.
I feel as though the good outweighs the bad when it comes to almond flour, and there are a lot of low carb and keto recipes out there that create delicious food with almond flour!
