Easy Keto Crustless Pizza
We love pizza in our house. It has been our go to meal for a very long time because of how easy it is to make or grab on our way home on a busy night. I am pretty sure my family would be ok if I told them we were eating nothing but pizza for dinner from now on.
Normally when we make homemade pizza or get take out pizza I skip eating the crust and just eat the toppings off. I do make a keto pizza crust on the days that I have extra time but lately things have been super busy and I just don’t feel like spending the time to make the low carb pizza crust or Cauliflower Pizza crust.
A few local pizza places were making crustless pizzas that were the toppings and sauce all baked with out the pizza crust. I loved the idea, but also know that some places use sauce that has sugar in it. While I have had it that way I know it is better for me to use a low carb sauce and make it home. Plus I don’t have to leave the house at all, which unless we are already out we skip take out because all take out places are 15-20 minutes each way from our house so it is easier and quicker to just make food at home.
This homemade crustless keto pizza is the perfect low carb easy dinner recipe! I can make it and have dinner on the table in about 20 minutes!

What Keto Friendly Pizza Sauce should I use?
I like a saucy pizza, so you can cut down on the amount of sauce that you use when you are making this easy crustless pizza recipe and that will also cut down on the carbs as well. No matter how much sauce you are using you are going to want to use a low carb sauce. Look for a sauce that is sugar-free, or no sugar added.
I personally prefer to use a low carb marinara sauce when making this recipe. You can use your favorite sauce, or try out one of the low carb marinara sauces that we enjoy using. You can also use homemade marinara sauce if you want to. I like to make and freeze homemade marinara sauce so I have it on hand when I want to use it.
