Turkey Crust Taco Pizza

If you can’t tell I am still on a pizza kick! I have continued on my search for good pizza alternatives. I was on one of my favorite blogs – I Breathe, I’m Hungry and came across this gem of a recipe: Chicken Crust Taco Pizza.

I know that for Ideal Protein cheese is a no go…and it’s hard to get around cheese when all you want to do is make pizza.

It’s not that cheese is bad for ketosis, but it does have a lot of fat. If you choose sharp cheeses like parmesan and cheddar the fat content will be lower and you will continue to have success while on Ideal Protein Phase 1.
