So, I’m currently obsessed with phyllo dough… It gives you just enough crust to hold your recipe ingredients without tons of carbs. Therefore, I am making phyllo tarts, phyllo pizza, phyllo pies, phyllo cakes (just kidding).
This pizza is awesome hot out of the oven or warmed up the next day. The topping ingredients are flexible so just use whatever veggies you have- I happened to have some roasted red peppers and a jar of marinated artichoke hearts in the fridge so that’s why I included them. You could simply add some black olives or pepperoni if you like. Be sure to check out my Low Carb Tomato Mushroom Pizza!
