6. Low Carb Pepperoni Pizza
While ordering pizza on Father’s Day is more convenient than making one, this will not be a great option if your dad is on a low-carb diet. But don’t worry, for this Low Carb Pepperoni Pizza with a Fat Head crust from Kim, the Low Carb Maven is so easy to prepare.
The prepping time is only 7 minutes and cooks in only 20 min! Its dough is made with almond flour, which is absolutely keto-friendly. She adds a little protein powder to the dough which she says improves the recipe but it’s not essential if you don’t have any to hand.
7. Ranch Grilled Chicken
If you plan on hosting a dinner party for your dad’s special day, this Ranch Grilled Chicken from Karly Campbell, food blogger over at That Low Carb Life would be a great dish to prepare.

Dads love steak. Well, who doesn’t? So make your dad smile this Father’s Day by prepping this delicious Garlic Butter Steak from Kelly of Life Made Keto. Garnished with mushrooms and asparagus, this delectable dish is definitely perfect for any man on low-carb.
Use grass-fed steak if you really want the best for your dad and my advise is don’t use olive oil to cook it in, use avocado oil or butter instead. Avocado oil is more stable when heated than olive oil. Some health experts say olive oil should not be heated at all.
You don’t need to be a professional chef to cook this steak. It’s actually easier than you think and the prepping time is only 10 minutes!
9. Low Carb Mashed Cauliflower
