FAQ FOR CARNIVORE PIZZA


👉  HOW CAN I STORE ANY LEFTOVERS

Store in an air tight container for 3-5 days in the fridge.

👉  FOR THE CRUST, CAN I USE GROUND PORK OR BEEF INSTEAD OF GROUND CHICKEN?

Ground chicken will provide the most neutral flavour which compliments the pork rinds well, but you can definitely substitute for any ground meat. You may need to experiment slightly with the ratios as the density of the meats can vary.

👉  WHAT OTHER SAUCES CAN I USE INSTEAD OF ALFREDO?

For a pure carnivore diet, you can omit the sauce and just use cheese.

👉  WHAT OTHER TOPPINGS CAN I USE?

Any protein will work well with this crust and alfredo sauce! Try this with chicken, bacon, ground beef or Italian/breakfast sausage. You can also add cold cut meats like proscuitto or ham.
