You’ll love this Keto Low-Carb Crustless Pizza.  Since maintaining a Keto Low-Carb lifestyle, I have not prepared any foods for clients or friends.  But I used to.

In 2007, I prepared a range of hors d’oeuvres for my girlfriend’s wedding. I created eight various hors d’oeuvres, including locally smoked trout with homemade cream cheese and chives on potato canapés. I also brought my mini pizza oven and prepared fresh, hot gourmet pizzas. Each married to a harmonizing wine. To my surprise, the pizzas were the first to be devoured by guests. I thought, “Wow, this crowd loves pizza.” I did not think further about this, other than having a new appreciation for my pizza talent.

Food and Wine Festival:

In the spring of 2012, I created and initiated an extensive wine and food festival in my town. Over the day, we saw over 5,000 participants. Vendors offered gourmet appetizers made with local ingredients and wines from around the world. At the end of the event, I was surprised to discover that our local pizza maker garnered the highest net profit! Locals came to this exceptional gourmet food and wine event, bought admission tickets and food tickets. With these tickets, they purchased the same food that they could get any day of the week – pizza.

Pizza History:

I realized that pizza is a staple in North America. Italian immigrants brought their comfort food to the US at the beginning of the 20th century. In 1905 Grocery owner Gennaro Lombari opened the first pizzeria in New York City. Pizzerias popped up across North America everywhere. In 1962 Greek-Canadian Sam Panopoulos created the first Hawaiian pizza with pineapple and ham at the Satellite Restaurant in Chatham, Ontario, Canada. Today over 5 billion pizzas are consumed each year around the world. Did you know that Americans eat 3 billion of these? Calculated another way, Americans eat over 350 slices of pizza every second. We consume pizza for breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner, an evening snack, and party necessity.

This Keto Low-Carb crust-less pizza has all the flavors as a classic one.  The tomato sauce and pepperoni provide the palate with that comfort food pizza feeling.  If you add plant-based mozzarella adds that melted cheese creaminess.

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO LOW-CARB CRUST-LESS PIZZA?

What is the nutritional value of this Keto Low-Carb Crustless Pizza?  While considered junk food, pizza (this version at least) has some nutritional benefits in the ground beef (65 grams of protein); spinach (an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A (carotenoids), manganese, folate, copper, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin E, calcium, and vitamin C); mushrooms (vitamin D and B12); tomato sauce (dietary fiber, vitamin K, Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Magnesium and Manganese, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, Potassium and Copper. 

I like to use an iron skillet on the BBQ.  Cook the beef, mushrooms, onions, and spinach in the skillet on the stovetop.

WHAT NON ALC WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO LOW-CARB CRUST-LESS PIZZA?

The predominant sensation of this Keto Low-Carb crust-less pizza is the mouth feel — fattiness from the pepperoni and mozzarella.  For this reason, choose an earthy red non alcoholic wine, Pick a quaffer (inexpensive wine) in fact.  A red blend.  This is pizza and there is no need to spend a small fortune on a quality vintage. Keep it simple.  Look for a red non alcoholic wine with enough weight to stand up to the fattiness of the crust-less pizza.  The wine’s natural backbone of acidity will complement the tanginess of the tomato sauce.  Consider de-alcoholized Merlot, Zinfandel or Shiraz.

Zero Alcohol Wine Tips: 

ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, opt for quality, non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low in sugar. Additionally, alcohol does not align with a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Moreover, your liver processes alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Furthermore, your body will metabolize alcohol as fuel before utilizing food, which can decelerate fat burning and may lead to the storage of carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Moreover, alcohol consumption stimulates the appetite, potentially causing overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Did you know that when you consume alcohol, your liver has to work extra hard to break it down? This can result in damage to your liver. Furthermore, it can elevate your risk of health issues such as inflammation and cancer, particularly with heavy consumption. Additionally, alcohol can disrupt your blood sugar levels, leaving you feeling dehydrated and disrupting your body’s normal functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Non-alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar are advantageous for your health. They not only aid in weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration but also contain essential nutrients and antioxidants from grapes that can decrease your risk of health conditions like heart disease. Consequently, since they lack alcohol, they’re ideal for socializing without any adverse effects, promoting feelings of happiness and reduced stress.
