Keto Shrimp Pesto Pizza

Keto Shrimp Pesto PizzaIf you’re looking for a new idea for pizza night, try this Keto shrimp pesto pizza recipe. It’s made on fathead dough and topped with mozzarella cheese, pesto sauce, and shrimp. It’s easier than you think to make and a pizza the whole family will love. 

We’ve been making this pizza for quite some time before I was on the ketogenic diet using a premade crust. Little did I know back then how bad that was for me and my family. I love the taste of fathead dough and it paired nicely with this style of pizza. Have you tried my Keto chili cheese corn dogs made with fathead dough as the bun? If not, add that to your list of recipes to try. They are delicious!
