Spray your rolling pin also and start to work your dough to the edges, This takes a little practice and manipulation. Try to make your dough even so it bakes evenly throughout the pan.

When the first 8 minutes are finished, pull the crust out and dock again to any place that the crust has puffed up. Then place back in the oven for  2 to 4  more minutes making sure it does not get too brown.  Remember you are going to bake it more when you get the toppings on!

This is our finished crust. it looks perfect and is ready for topping. One crust is 4 servings , you will be able to have one fourth of the pizza as a serving when it is finished.

We decided to make a Spinach chicken pizza for this blog because it is one of my favorites and does not use pizza sauce which can be high in carbs.

More Mozzarella! Now this pizza is ready to go into the oven. We turned the oven down to 375 degrees after the crust came out. You want to bake it slower with the toppings on because you want them to be done and also not burn your crust. Watch your pizza closely.  cook for about 12 to 15 minutes or until your cheese is bubbly and starting to brown. Don’t forget to watch your crust!

Do not forget to figure your topping of choice into your macros and Let me know if you make this.

This crust is versatile it can be used to make bagels and wraps  to make pigs in a blanket etc. It is the best thing I have found.

Keto chicken spaghetti squash primivara

This is a very tasty dish that is pretty simple to make.Keto spaghetti squash

This dish tastes amazing and you are going to get some extra vegetables in such as the spaghetti squash. This dish can be a little high in carbs but if you plan and keep your carbs lower throughout the day you should have no problem fitting this dish in to your daily intake.

Spaghetti squash can be very difficult to cut initially so our first tip is to  poke some holes in the squash with a knife or fork and microwave on high for about 7 minutes to soften.Keto Spaghetti Squash

Keto Spaghetti Squash

When the 7 minutes is passes pull the squash out and slice in half. ( carefully, this will be HOT!)

 

 

Clean out the seeds and prep the squash for baking. Add some olive oil, salt and pepper to taste.Keto Spaghetti Squash

Place in the oven and bake at  375 for 45 minutes!

Keto Spaghetti Squash

While that is baking you can go ahead and prep your filling!

Saute your chicken on the stovetop with the butter and garlic. When you can saute it in butter it adds fat and flavor. Or if you prefer you can use ground beef in place of the chicken. If we use ground beef we do the 73% fat regular ground beef to make it more keto friendly. Whatever you are in the mood for !

Keto Spaghetti Squash

When the chicken is cooked add 1 cup of spaghetti sauce. Look for the one with the lowest carb count per serving as they vary so much. Then add the parmesan cheese and the Italian seasoning, let that simmer several minutes. Then remove from heat.

When the squash is done remove from the oven and you can shred it with a fork so it resembles spaghetti. Add the shredded squash to the chicken mixture and mix it together. Then divide it evenly back in the the shell.

Next divide the cup of Mozzarella cheese on top and place back in the oven to bake another 15 to 20 minutes or until the cheese is browned on top.

You can add Italian seasoning or other spices depending on how you like to make your meal. However watch your carbs when you alter the recipe. This is an excellent way to get in a vegetable that some of you may have never tried. Please comment  and let us know if you make this and what you think.
