Ketovore pizza you are seeing in these photos should get a gold medal among meat-based pizzas. In the universe of Keto recipes, there are all sorts of pizza inventions and all of them focus only on looks and feelings. Why do we want to imitate the flour-based crust? Well, we always want to imitate something. But if we take care of our health and decide to live a life with the low-carb, Keto or Carnivore diet in mind, we will pay more attention to nutritional density! For this reason, here on Greek Goes Keto, you will find recipes that skyrocket in vital nutrients.
What is Ketovore pizza?
Ketovore is a specific “quadrant” of the Keto and Low-Carb galaxy where you base all your meals on good animal-based proteins and fats, while adding just a little bit of the ingredients from plant-based origin. In such an approach, Keto Mediterranean Diet followers go even further… We use only ruminant animal meat, goat, sheep, buffalo dairy, wild-caught seafood and pasture-raised eggs. These are our nourishing ingredients with top-quality protein chemical score and beneficial micronutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids.
Now, when we add something from the plant world, it’s always organic, local and seasonal. This particular Ketovore pizza was created by following this simple and rustic philosophy.
The advantage of lamb
Not only that it tastes so rich, but lamb also offers some top nutrients that can’t easily be found in other types of meat. Here’s a reminder: In 100g of lamb you will get 25.6g of protein, 16.5 g of fat, and be ready for glory – zero carbs! 😉 Lamb is one of the most quality protein sources. You will get all the essential amino acids your body needs for muscle growth and health maintenance. Additionally, lamb meat is a perfect source of vitamin B12, Selenium, Zinc, Niacin, Phosphorus, Iron, Creatine, Taurine, etc…
It’s important to point out that lamb is the richest L-carnitine, nothing will give you more than lamb. In a solid portion of lamb, you can get up to 350mg of this vital nutrient!
Ketovore pizza vs. classic pizza
“Carboholics” will say nothing can replace real pizza, but Ketovores know, a crust made of ground lamb, feta and eggs will taste a trillion times better, even on the next day. It also feeds you the real stuff, protein, good fats, minerals and other micronutrients! For the topping, I chose goat cheese and mutton sausage, spring onion and just a few cherry tomatoes with Mediterranean herbs. Follow this simple recipe or be creative and use some other ingredients for the topping, such as buffalo mozzarella, seafood as well as any other type of sausage made of ruminant animal meat or internals.
