We had to force ourselves into not making this recipe too often as to not get tired of it – it’s that good. We love making these for weekends away, nights when we want a quick and easy meal, and have even worked at perfecting a breakfast version. Coming soon!
Keto Deep Dish Pizza
This sausage crusted masterpiece came across our path from none other than our favorite Chicago pizza staple, Lou Malnati's. Instead of your standard pizza - crust, sauce, cheese, toppings; the deep dish low carb pizza, from bottom to top, comprises of: sausage layer, sauce, cheese, pepperoni.
- 3/4 Pound Italian Sausage ground or de-cased
- 1 Package Pepperoni
- 1 Package Fresh Mozzarella cut into slices
- 1 jar your favorite pizza sauce
- 1 tsp garlic powder optional
- 1 tsp crushed red pepper optional
- 1 tsp oregano optional
- 1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Begin by flattening out your sausage into a circle on parchment paper or nonstick foil. This circle should be about 10 inches in diameter.
Transfer your sausage on foil/parchment into a 9 inch cake pan. It should be just a little too big for the cake pan. Use the excess to create a "crust" to help hold the ingredients in. If you do not have a cake pan, using a dish that is a couple inches deep that is oven safe will work fine.
Put in the oven for 10 minutes, or until brown.
Drain/pat down excess grease.
Top with fresh mozzarella.
Top with pepperoni (or any other ingredients you'd like to add).
Top with pizza sauce and spread.
Top with garlic powder, red pepper, oregano, and parmesan. (Optional)
Bake for an addition 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and toppings are hot.
