8 Awesome Low-carb Pizza Recipes

There’s something super comforting about the taste of pizza. Maybe it’s the delicious (and classic) combination of cheese, tomato and dough that make it so irresistible.

The only problem is – pizza is absolutely brimming with carbs  – coming from the dough in the base (usless you opt for a pre-packed low-carb pizza crust) and the often sugary pizza sauces.

If you’d like to satisfy your pizza cravings without the guilt, check out these low-carb pizza recipes from around the web.
