One thing I refuse to give up is pizza, there are plenty of cheese crust pizza recipes out there, but some times it can be A LOT of cheese, so I wanted to find another option.
This pizza recipe makes personal portobello pizzas perfect for any keto meal plan. Add this one to your easy recipes for dinner, because it will only take 15 minutes to make and 6 ingredients!

A Super Easy Recipe
I admittedly am a big mushroom fan❤️, so it shouldn't have been a huge surprise that I loved these keto pizzas.
They were so tasty I could have ate the whole tray! The recipe is the perfect combo of flavors and taste, well... just like pizza! (that was the goal after all).
I used Organicville brand of Pizza sauce . It has low net carbs and sugars, compared to your usual pizza sauce.
*Note: The pizza sauce contains a small amount of Agave Nectar, however, based on the amount of sauce we are using for this recipe it doesn't concern me. Agave Nectar is a natural sweetener but does contain fructose, which isn't an ingredient I recommend consuming in large quantities every day. On the other hand, most pizza sauces are loaded with sugar and extremely high in carbs.
If your grocery store has an organic or health food section you may be able to find it there, but if you can't find this brand be sure to check the label and adjust nutritional facts as needed of other brands. If you know of a better brand let me know in the comments below so I can try it out.

The thing you'll probably love the most is how how easy this Keto recipe is to throw together. There is no extensive prep needed. The hardest part is removing the stems from the mushrooms, which shouldn't be that daunting of a task.
*On a side note what is the proper way to spell Portobello?🤷🏼♀️ I mean seriously every where I look it's either spelled Portobello or Portabella, so I'm confused and if you have any idea what the correct way is please leave me a comment below lol!

Count Net Carbs
I have found that most people starting out on keto don't realize that you should be counting Net Carbs when following a Keto Diet. So when you look at the nutrition label you subtract Fiber from the Total Carbs and that equals Net Carbs.
The Recipe makes 6 personal pizzas, each pizza has 6.9g total Carbs, 1.6g Fiber....so 6.9-1.6 =5.3g.
Each personal Portobello Pizza is only 5.3g Net Carbs
