Low Carb Taco Pizza

Pizza is a favorite food for many people, but it can be high in carbs. This Low Carb Taco Pizza is a great alternative. The crust is made from a low carb crust and is topped with seasoned ground beef, salsa, and cheese.
To make this pizza, you will need a LC thick crust pizza shell, ground beef, keto taco seasoning, salsa, shredded cheddar cheese, and your favorite low carb toppings.

Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees F. Mix all of the ingredients for the keto taco seasoning in a small bowl. In a medium skillet, fry the ground beef until cooked through and drain excess liquid or fat. Stir in the taco seasoning, remove from heat, and set aside.

Place the LC thick crust pizza shell on a baking sheet or cutting board. Spread the salsa over the top and layer half of the shredded cheddar cheese over the salsa. Top the cheese layer with the ground beef mixture and top with the rest of the shredded cheddar cheese.

Place the pizza directly on the rack in the oven by sliding it off of the cookie sheet or cutting board and bake for about 13 minutes. Remove the pizza from the oven, top with the low carb toppings of your choice, and additional keto taco seasoning, if desired, slice and enjoy!

Low Carb Creamy Tuscan Chicken with LC Thin Spaghetti Noodles

Creamy Tuscan Chicken is a flavorful dish that is easy to make and low in carbs. This version uses LC thin spaghetti noodles made from konjac flour, which is low in carbs and high in fiber. The dish is flavored with garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, and spinach.

To make this dish, you will need shallot, garlic, Italian seasoning, sea salt, pepper, chicken thighs, ghee or butter, chicken broth, LC coconut cream, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, spinach, and LC thin spaghetti pasta.

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and prepare the LC thin spaghetti pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat and add ghee or butter. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with the Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.

Once the ghee or butter is hot, add the chicken to the skillet. Cook, without disturbing for 4-5 minutes, until a nice brown crust has formed. Flip and cook another 4-5 minutes on the other side until the chicken is mostly cooked through.

Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside. Add more ghee or butter if needed and add the garlic and shallot to the pan. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1-2 minutes. Add the LC coconut cream, chicken broth, sun-dried tomatoes, and basil to the pan. Stir to mix, scraping up any browned bits remaining in the pan from when you cooked your chicken. Add the chicken back to the skillet with the sauce. Cover and turn the heat down to low. Simmer for about 3-4 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked. When the chicken is done, add in the spinach and stir it in until wilted. Serve over prepared LC thin spaghetti pasta and garnish with chopped parsley.
