Keto Cheesy Pizza Chicken in a Skillet_1

We all know that regular pizza is a no-go when it comes to the keto diet. There are just too many carbs most of which are found in the crust. That’s why we say forget the crust and focus on the flavors that you love the most–pepperoni, mozzarella, and tomato sauce. All of this is layered over the chicken thighs. Bake it to a golden bubbly, and the result is a chicken pizza that is to die for!

The best thing about this recipe (other than fantastic flavor!) is that it only takes six simple ingredients and ten minutes of prep time. The rest of the work is accomplished by the oven! If you’re strapped for time, but still want to enjoy a healthy meal, then this is the type of recipe you should have on hand.

One of the best things about the keto diet is that it truly takes an innovative approach to recipe-making. Just as this recipe proves, you can still have it all, without all of the carbs. You still get the same flavor, but you keep the peace of mind you’re still doing what’s best for your body!

Try this simple recipe and see for yourself just how delicious it is! Share with your family and friends (or keep it for yourself; we won’t judge!). Cheesy pizza chicken in a skillet is the perfect meal for any occasion. Trust us; you won’t be disappointed!
