Keto Meat Lover’s Pizza tops my list of cravings and comfort foods. While take-out cauliflower crust pizza is tasty, it tends to lack the satisfying crunch we crave. Despite trying various versions from different places and even attempting homemade recipes, the cauliflower crust consistently disappoints. With our focus on increasing daily protein intake through weightlifting, finding a suitable crust became a priority.

Discovering this crust recipe sparked excitement. We’re thrilled with the results. Though not as crispy as wheat-based crusts, it’s firm, crunchy, and totally worth it. Plus, it’s packed with protein, perfect for our fitness goals. When opting for pre-shredded mozzarella or provolone for the Keto crust, check the nutritional label to ensure it’s low in carbs—aim for only 1 gram per ounce.

Apart from the crust, the main source of carbs in this recipe is the tomato sauce. Opt for a low-sugar option or consider making your own. Rao’s pizza sauce is a great choice, with only about 4 net carbs per 1/2 cup. Typically, you’ll need around 1 cup of sauce for this recipe, depending on your preference. With Rao’s sauce, each slice ends up with just 1 net carb from the sauce.

It’s worth noting that this pizza is incredibly filling. You may find that two slices are more than enough—well, that’s our experience, at least!

Does this Keto Meat Lover’s Pizza rank for nutritional value? For us, the most exciting element of this pizza is the amount of protein we get per slice. Based on this recipe, each slice provides about 28 grams of protein. So, if you eat 2 slices, you get almost 32 grams of protein in this meal.  This recipe calls for bacon.  If you’re focusing on a Keto Heart Healthy diet, you can substitute the bacon for turkey bacon. Turkey bacon is a popular alternative to traditional pork bacon, as it is lower in bad saturated fat and calories.

A 1-ounce serving of turkey bacon contains about 30-35 calories, which is less than half the calories found in pork bacon. Turkey bacon is also a good source of protein, providing about 3-4 grams per serving. It is generally lower in sodium, too, than pork bacon, which makes it a better option for those watching their salt intake. However, some brands of turkey bacon may contain added sugars and preservatives, so it is important to check the label and choose a brand that is minimally processed. Overall, turkey bacon can be a good option for those looking to enjoy the flavor of bacon while maintaining a healthier diet.

The Keto Low-Carb Meat Lover’s Pizza offers a flavor-packed experience that tantalizes the taste buds with a symphony of savory sensations. With each bite, you’re greeted by the rich indulgence of protein and cheese, creating a luxurious mouthfeel that satisfies the palate with its hearty fattiness. The pepperoni adds a punch of saltiness, perfectly complementing the savory notes of the cheese and meat toppings. Meanwhile, the tangy, umami-rich tomato sauce provides a vibrant contrast, adding depth and complexity to each slice. Together, these bold flavors create a pizza experience that’s not only satisfyingly indulgent but also brimming with irresistible taste, making it a must-have for any meat lover craving a deliciously satisfying meal.

Prepare to indulge in a symphony of flavors with the Keto Meat Lover’s Pizza, where every bite is a culinary adventure. Here, taste sensations take the spotlight, with rich fattiness from the beef and cheese, tangy notes from the sauce, and savory umami goodness from the bacon, pepperoni, and mushrooms. To complement this flavor extravaganza, opt for a non alcoholic red wine with enough depth and weight to stand up to the bold flavors of the pizza. While this may be pizza, don’t underestimate the importance of a good non alcoholic wine pairing. Choose an easy-drinking red with a smooth texture that enhances the dining experience without overpowering the palate. Consider options like non alcoholic Zinfandel, Shiraz, Grenache/Garnacha, Valpolicella, Carmenère, Rioja, or Chianti for a perfect pairing that elevates your pizza night to a gourmet affair.

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.
