Are you following the keto way of eating? Then you HAVE to try this white keto pizza! Cheesy, satisfying greatness and only 2.5 carbs per serving!
Grilled Chicken & Spinach
First let me start by apologizing for the quality of the photos in this post. This was spur of the moment and I really really wanted to document and share this with you! Second- no I am not a healthy living, keto, gluten free, or paleo blogger. However, I do follow the keto way of eating and love to share recipes. I do not feel like I have to be an expert to do this. I am a home chef, I test all recipes (documenting this was spur of the moment but I have made this recipe plenty of times) and I calculate the nutrition information for you, it is listed below.
If you are not familiar with the keto way of eating, in short – Keto or Ketosis is a process in which you train your body to burn fat for fuel instead of carbs (sugar/insulin etc) by eating a low carb, higher fat diet. This IS NOT a fad. This is NOT unhealthy, regardless of the fact that it is high fat. I will not debate this and all negative comments will be removed before going live.
So, here we go ! A small cheese pizza this size has about 733 calories and 77 grams of carbs (Read details here)
My pizza has 688 calories, and 5 NET carbs! Now, do not drop when you see the fat amount. The fat is suppose to be high and the calculated amount is for the whole pizza. 54 grams. 27 grams per serving- 2 pieces. You can easily cut back on this by using light cream cheese and milk instead of half & half.
But, if you are following the keto way of eating you understand that this fat amount is perfectly ok!
How to make keto pizza:
- 1 boneless skinless chicken breast
- 1/2 tablespoon Olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup half & half or heavy whipping cream (I used half & half, nutrition facts will change if using something else)
- 1/4 tsp xanthan gum (thickener found near the yeast or sweetener aisle) This comes in a small packet like yeast and is only about 40¢
- 1 cup fresh spinach, roughly chopped
- 1/2 cup part skim shredded mozzarella
- Sea salt & pepper ( to taste )
- 1 recipe of keto Fathead Pizza Dough
Saute the chicken in a skillet over medium heat until done. Remove, set aside.
Add garlic plus the xantham gum with half & half to the skillet and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer when sauce starts to thicken.
Fold in spinach, cook just until wilted.
Spread sauce/spinach mixture onto your cooked pizza crust. Top with chicken and shredded cheese.
Bake 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
NOTE* if your oven and pizza crust wasn’t already hot from making the dough, bake for 10 minutes instead.
Allow to cool, cut into 4.
Nutrition Facts are based on eating the full pizza. Divide in half for serving size of 2 slices.
