Ingredients needed for pizza casserole - beef, salt and pepper, mozzarella cheese, crushed tomatoes, italian seasoning, garlic salt parmesan cheese

Ingredients for Crockpot Pizza Casserole:

  • Ground Beef
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Crushed Tomatoes
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Garlic Salt
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Favorite pizza toppings

How to make Keto Pizza Casserole:

  • Brown the beef with the salt and pepper in a skillet over medium/high heat. Drain the grease.
  • I used all ground beef but you can easily use ground sausage or half beef and half sausage if you prefer. If you are cooking Italian sausage as well – make sure to drain the grease thoroughly. You don’t want to pour the grease in the crock pot.

  • Cover and cook on low for 4 hours. Cooking times can vary based on the crock pot used.

Tip for Low Carb Chicken Pizza Crock Pot Recipe:

  • Sauté the onion and green pepper – While cooking the ground beef, I like to add in the green peppers and onions first. This allows them to cook first and my kids don’t notice that they are in there.
  • Cook Meat First – If your crock doesn’t have the function to brown the meat, be sure to brown and drain before adding to the crock pot.
  • Split the Pizza Toppings – If everyone doesn’t like pepperoni or someone wants a specific topping, you can always place the ingredient on one side of the crockpot so everyone gets what the want.
  • Cook in a casserole dish – If you prefer, you can make this low carb pizza in a casserole dish and put in your oven.
  • Use Marinara Sauces – You can also use marinara sauce. Make sure to check the ingredients and nutritional information as some may be loaded with sugar and carbs.

Variation Ideas:

This low carb pizza is very customizable. We love recipes that you can change depending on what you like or don’t like in a recipe. Here are some of our favorites:

  • Top with your favorite cheese – We normally do shredded cheese but I had some provolone slices leftover and I used the slices to top this pizza casserole.
  • Double up the meat – You can double the Sausage or the Pepperoni to get in the extra protein.
  • Extra Vegetables – I love my pizza topped with as much vegetables as I can get. I love to double the mushrooms and black olives.
  • Extra Spice – Toss in some jalapeno’s or crush peppers. We love a little extra kick in our pizza.
  • Mix in Cream Cheese – Add in some diced cream cheese to make it very creamy. Cream cheese is a great fat source when following a keto diet.

What to serve with Keto Pizza?

This Keto Pizza is great by it self. It really is a complete meal but I still feel like I need to serve a side with it.

  • A green salad is the perfect side to this Keto Pizza.
  • A side of roasted broccoli.
  • 90 Second Bread Recipe – If you are missing bread on the Keto diet, make this this bread for a great side to this this pizza.
