This tasted way too good to be this low calorie. Seriously.
Bacon. Cheese. Creamy sauce. Low calorie. Pure deliciousness.
I know, it doesn't make sense. I didn't believe it either at first.
I bought a spaghetti squash and stared at it for a few days before figuring out what to do with it.
I took my favorite pizza and decided to incorporate the ingredients into this. It's the chicken bacon alfredo pizza. I seriously drooled a bit while typing it. So good!
I knew that I loved all the ingredients so it would be good. I underestimated HOW good it would be though.
The slightly caramelized onions with the bit of bacon grease was perfect with this. Turkey bacon is so much lower calorie and it doesn't yield much grease but you just need a bit. I think the only think I would do different is add a bit more garlic.
Make this. You won't regret it.
