Keto Cheese Calzone Pie

Keto Cheese Calzone Pie

There are dozens of gluten-free, low-carb pizza recipes out there. I was looking to create something a bit different but still in the “pizza” family. So I took a shot at the calzone pie! This came out so delicious that the keto calzone is in heavy rotation on the Ketogenic Kitchen menu. This reheats well and is great for a weekday work lunch. No obscure ingredients here and it’s fairly simple to make. There are so many options for fillings too. You can try pepperoni and cheese, pesto, ham and cheese, meatball, vegetarian..the possibilities are endless. Give this a shot and let me know what you think!
