This recipe all of a sudden manifested itself when my wife was mentioning something along the lines of wanting to eat pizza. Being on Keto limits what I’m allowed to eat and not. I’ve made Keto crackers with almond flour quite a few times and they came out great. The Idea behind this is wanting to eat something different, be something easy to make, and be something new. Taste tests from my young children, mother, and wife all came back with great feedback ( it was tasty).
Only thing I would change to this would be to chiffonade the basil and add it a couple of minutes before the timer ends on the last oven placement ( just so it doesnt wilt as much).
