I have been grilling since I first learned to cook.  I won’t bore you with how long ago that was…… Grilling is my favorite method of cooking. It increases flavor, looks beautiful when finished and usually involves the family hanging around outside while I grill. I don’t get the insatiable need to throw everyone out of my kitchen then.

Once I started eating the keto way I assumed giving up BBQ sauce was at the top of the list. So, of course I set out to make my own keto approved version.  I make the sauce in big batches and freeze in mason jars. Once a week I just take a jar out of the freezer and refrigerate it.

This keto fathead pizza recipe will cure both your pizza and BBQ cravings!


BBQ Pulled Pork style

The recipe below includes a link to our BBQ sauce and Fathead pizza dough recipes with instructions on how to make this pizza. We also wanted to include a “non fathead” version for those who don’t like it so, the photos of this pizza were taken with it built on Joseph’s Flax Oat Lavash Bread.

This is great low carb option for those keto adapted or simply eating low carb. There is 6 net carbs per serving.  The pizza on a Lavash bread makes 2 , 3 piece servings.  I can never eat more than two it is so filling!

> Fathead version is 6 net carbs per serving (3 pieces)

> Lavash Bread version is 10 net carbs per serving (3 pieces)
