    As a family of adults we changed our life style to a “kind of” keto almost two years ago. I am the only one who has maintained the keto into the second year. It definitely fits my body type, since I’ve lost 80 pounds and maintained the loss with ease. Everyone is different and in our cultural food environment it takes some real awareness to eat without sugar in its many forms, so this is definitely not for most. If you aren’t familiar with a ketogenic diet it mainly limits your carbs, so I eat a lot of greens, sprouts and cole crops and some grass feed meats.

    Since I had long had a gluten intolerance this was not that hard of a transition for me. This is a versatile pizza/cracker bread and I thought I’d share it. I make a big batch of pizza crust/bread and dry or twice back some for crackers. I’d hoped to have a picture of the pizza but someone ate the last three slices before I snapped a photo.

    If you do try the recipe use parchment paper on your sheet pan and pat out the dough really, really thin.

    This is fabulous!! I'm following (loosely) a Keto diet myself.

    Couple questions. You bake the pizza crust ON the parchment paper/cookie sheet right? And when you say press it out thin....how much will it rise? Or will it at all?

    Looks good Jewel. My husband is glutin intolerant and I am pre-diabetic so this will be perfect for us.

    BTW, I like your hand written recipe.

    Jewell, please don't take offense, but your post reminded me of this:
    If cauliflower can be pizza, you, my friend, can be anything!"
    Cauliflower is inspirational!

    I cut out bread products and sugars about 3 years ago when I realized that the next pair of jeans I bought would have to be size 18 -20, I am back down to 12-14s.
    never heard of Keto until last year when hubby started talking about trying it. Then I realized I had been Keto without even knowing, I just knew that carbs meant bigger size clothes.
    I was also diagnosed as pre-diabetic about 40 years ago so my diet is high in protein.

    Ronni, yes it is baked on the parchment paper. I love parchment paper. We even bake our bacon on it instead of frying.

    Pizza is just the beginning MG. :D It can be mashed potatoes and rice too. :eek:


    Fantastic Toni! I love how substituting fats for carbs makes you feel full. Heavy cream with frozen berries is now my ice cream and who doesn’t like bacon? I know several people who couldn’t get off the carbs though. It’s wonderful when the body switches over to burning fat as a fuel source.

    Thanks CM. Dr. Berg and Dr. Berry have lots on YouTube if you want to know more. Oh, the hand written scribbles are from I an old small spiral notebook that I keep the family recipes in. :cool:

    Figure on it not really rising, but I like it really tapped out really thin. Because of the ingredients and their consistency, thicker is pretty dense stuff. Play with it though and see what you prefer. Oh yeh, I use my surgical gloves to mix and pat it out. :whistling:
