cheesy chicken crust pizza with ricotta

Who said carnivores can't have pizza? One of the easiest and most delicious carnivore friendly pizza recipes you can make!

Over the years, I have tried many low carb, keto, and carnivore pizza recipes and this is by far my family's favorite!

So cheesy and full of fat. I promise you won't miss the dough!

When I came up with this recipe I was on a mission to create the best carnivore approved pizza. I'm always looking for ways to create my family's favorite dishes carnivore style! I wanted something that didn't just look like pizza, but also tasted like it! This recipe has all the best pizza ingredients - CHEESE & MEAT - without all the carbs and no plant ingredients except for a little oregano which is totally optional. This pizza has a crispy outer crust, because it's loaded with mozzarella cheese that I sprinkle around the outer edges. Baking it at a high temperature also helps make it crispy.
