A low-carb diet limits carbohydrates — such as those found in grains, starchy vegetables, and fruit — and emphasizes foods high in protein and fat. Many types of low-carb diets exist. Each diet has varying restrictions on the types and amounts of carbohydrates you can eat.

Why Eat Low Carb?

A low-carb diet is generally used for losing weight. Some low-carb diets may have health benefits beyond weight loss, such as reducing risk factors associated with type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome, says the Mayo Clinic.

Fun Fact: The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that carbohydrates make up 45 to 65 percent of your total daily calorie intake. So if you consume 2,000 calories a day, you would need to eat between 900 and 1,300 calories a day from carbohydrates. That is, if you aren't following a low-carb diet. Your macros might very well be different. (Check out our macros calculator!)

How to Make Low-Carb Pizza

This dish is inexpensive and loaded with veggies, to boot, both of which are increasingly important these days. That's because we aren't using any kind of traditional carbohydrate as the base for your "pizza." Much as our other low-carb "pizza" dishes use chicken (like this Pizza Chicken Meal Prep) as the base, we are using spaghetti squash.

Tips for Low-Carb Pizza

Feel free to use that or another kind of squash, such as butternut. We know it's not the same as a crunchy crush, but you'll still get all of the flavors of pizza, but none of the extra carbohydrates.

If you eat cheese, t hen by all means add some shredded mozzarella or cheddar (or a combo of both) to the top of this "pizza" after you add the sauce and return the dish to the oven. We also like sliced sausage on this pizza, too.
