Low-Carb Green Pesto Pizza Recipe

Low-Carb Green Pesto Pizza

Great news! We joined forces with yet another talented recipe developer and food photographer! I’d like to welcome Dearna Bond who will be creating healthy keto vegetarian and pescatarian recipes for our site. Let’s start with this cheesy veggie keto pizza!

Pizza is a definite crowd pleaser, and this grain-free green pesto version is always a winner when entertaining in our house!

The broccoli base makes a nice alternative to the more well-known cauliflower variety, and when topped with pesto and fresh basil makes a gorgeous green vision that not only tastes great but looks impressive too.

The below combination is our favorite for a quick bite to eat, but you could easily change it up to have a more traditional, tomato-based toppings if that’s your thing.
