Tips and Ideas
Wondering where is the cheese? Feel free to add some.
If you want to continue with the pizza flavors, add Mozarella. If you prefer stronger cheese, add a sharp aged cheddar.
If you are looking for a dairy-free option, then it is perfect without the cheese.
If you are a purist, you’d want to leave out the peppers.
It is also a good idea to leave them out if you want to reduce the net carbs in your dish as they add three to four grams of net carbs to your pizza.
The other item that add to your carbs is the sun dried tomato. If you are keto and want your carbs lower, then half them or leave them out all together.
