Skillet Pizza


Skillet pizza is a delicious, quick weeknight meal the entire family will love. Make this low carb pizza with, or without a traditional crust.

This pizza made in a skillet may sound a little odd, but it's actually a wonderful way to whip up a fast, weeknight dinner.

It can actually be made a couple different ways...so, go ahead and try both of these tasty recipes.


Tip: *If you add any meats like beef or chicken, remember to cook them ahead of time as they won't have time to thoroughly cook on the pizza.
