1. Meatlovers Pizza (Via Ditch the Carbs)
When making keto pizza, fathead pizza crust is definitely the way to go. The base of fathead pizza dough is low carb flour/meal and different cheeses. It is mandatory if you are on the keto diet (just kidding), but if you love pizza you should definitely try it!
Ditch The Carbs has definitely perfected fathead pizza dough and it is my go to recipe when making keto pizza. They also give you tons of topping suggestions.
Ditch The Carbs is one of my favorite keto blogs that has tons of recipes, as well as helpful keto articles! Be sure to check them out!
2. Creamy Ranch Pork Chops (Via 730 Sage Street)
These panned seared pork chops are topped off with a decadent and creamy ranch sauce that is so good, you’ll forget you’re even on a diet! What I love is the simplicity of this dish, it is made with whole food ingredients that are going to nourish your body.
3. Ground Beef Empanadas (Via Mince Republic)
These keto friendly beef empanadas are perfect when you are craving something savory and delicious. You feel like you are “cheating” on the keto diet, when you really aren’t. As an added bonus you can freeze these and reheat them, which is great if you like to prep your meals ahead of time.
4. Keto Lasagna (Via Peace, Love and Low Carb)
If you’ve been on keto for awhile, you’ve probably tried some not so stellar pasta dishes. This is not one of those recipes, this lasagna tastes like the real thing!
The secret is in her tasty “noodle” recipe. Unlike most keto “pastas” I’ve tried, she doesn’t use veggies. If you love lasagna, this is a must try for sure!
5. Easy Tamale Pie Casserole (Via Wholesome Yum)
If you’re looking for a quick meal on those days when you just don’t feel like cooking, this easy tamale pie casserole only takes thirty minutes to make (including cooking time). She even gives you a homemade enchilada sauce recipe (YUM!) or you can buy it premade.
6. Sausage & Pepperoni Pizza Stuffed Peppers (Via Kalyn’s Kitchen)
Stuffed peppers are always delicious, but pizza stuffed peppers? Umm, INSANELY delicious! If you’re craving pizza and don’t want to break your keto diet, this recipe will definitely satisfy your craving.
7. Egg Roll in a Bowl (Via Keto Connect)
If you’re craving some Chinese takeout, you can whip this dish up in thirty minutes or less. You can prepare this meal in one pan, which makes cleanup a breeze. Bonus points for such a clever name!

Traditional chicken Alfredo is one of the most carb filled dishes out there. This recipe ditches the pasta for healthy spaghetti squash “noodles”, making it keto compliant. Add an out of this world homemade Alfredo sauce and you have the best dinner ever!

Seriously this chili is so good, you won’t even notice it doesn’t have any beans. You can make this dinner with or without a crock pot and can freeze it as well. This is one fabulous weekday meal!
18. Caprese Chicken (Via Keto Connect)
Breaded chicken with fresh mozzarella and tomatoes sounds absolutely divine. One reason I love Keto Connect so much is they are kind of like keto scientists (lol), they try out so many things and perfect their recipes until they are just right.
After tinkering with tons of low carb breading ideas, they came up with the perfect breading that actually gets crispy. If you haven’t already, you might want to take a look at Keto Connect, they have loads of creative and yummy keto recipes.

A bacon wrapped burger doesn’t get much better, that is until you stuff it with cheese. The method she uses to stuff the burgers is actually quite clever, you should take a look!

Keto is all about the fat and this wonderful dill sauce will help you reach your fat goal for the day. Salmon is healthy because it is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and is high in B vitamins.
