Keto Pepperoni Pizza

For this keto pizza casserole recipe, I went with pepperoni as my topping, or filling in the case of this low carb casserole recipe. My boys love pepperoni and it’s something I usually keep around the house since the kids love to snack on it. However, you can fill your keto pizza casserole with any of your favorite low carb pizza toppings. Here are a few you might consider:

  • salami
  • sausage
  • cooked, crumbed bacon
  • mushrooms
  • bell pepper
  • sliced onion
  • olives
  • green onions

Pizza Sauce

You can go with your favorite low carb pizza sauce for this recipe. Just make sure you read the label to ensure that there aren’t added sugars or carbs to your marinara. Generally, brands like Yo Mama and Rao’s are safe and considered keto friendly, but you can also use canned tomato sauce if you can’t find a keto pizza sauce at the grocery store.

For a budget friendly option, you can easily make your own homemade pizza sauce. This recipe uses crushed tomatoes and a few seasoning to make a flavorful, savory marinara.

Pull-Apart Keto Rolls

What makes this recipe different that other keto pizza casserole recipes is the buttery, pull-apart keto rolls on top. These help soak up the juices from the marinara sauce and melted cheese. They add that missing element of pizza dough in every bite of casserole. This keto dough isn’t a fat head dough since the predominate ingredient is not mozzarella cheese, but the rolls are still fluffy and full of flavor. This is in-part due to the protein powder in the recipe. Plus they are easy to make.
