There's something about wagyu that it just so special and delicious, I decided to mix some of my favorite flavors here! And since turkey pepperoni has been a staple in my fridge for a couple of months now I thought it was time to share this amazing recipe along with some good keto blue cheese dressing and of course grass-fed wagyu from First Light Farms.
