Keto Mexican Pizza

woolf

This is an amazingly delicious meal that is calorie dense but keto and low carb diet friendly.

I browned ground beef, (I used grass-fed beef, but any meat or meat alternative would I am sure work fine), added a packet of taco seasoning, melted in some chunks of cheese (I used the Aldi version of Velveeta*) and a mostly full jar of medium salsa. I let that all melt together. I made 4 mini pizza crusts with the fathead pizza crust. (I was out of cream cheese and ricotta cheese, so I substituted cottage cheese and it worked just fine) I baked them all with no toppings.

I topped one with the Mexican delightfulness and baked for a few more minutes I was still at 400 degrees from making the crust. I then topped it with a scoop of sour cream.

OMG I had to text a friend about it. YES. It. was. that. good. Self-control was a problem but this food is so rich and dense you cannot physically consume more than one pizza. That being said, I made a second one later in a moment of weakness, so be warned. I should have packed up all the leftovers a little faster in retrospect.

Anyways, I tested my keto levels a few hours later with the keto strips and I was good to go! 🙂
