Ingredients:

  • 1 lb (450g) ground beef (or ground turkey for a leaner option)
  • 1 cup sugar-free marinara sauce
  • 1 and 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced pepperoni (or your favorite pizza toppings)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (optional, for added heat)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh basil leaves, chopped (for garnish)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with butter or cooking spray.
  2. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium-high heat until it’s browned and cooked through. Drain any excess grease.
  3. Season the cooked ground beef with dried oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, red pepper flakes (if using), salt, and pepper. Mix well to evenly distribute the flavors.
  4. Spread the seasoned ground beef evenly in the prepared baking dish.
  5. Pour the sugar-free marinara sauce over the ground beef, ensuring it covers the meat layer entirely.
  6. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese over the marinara sauce, forming a generous and gooey cheese layer.
  7. Add your favorite pizza toppings on top of the cheese layer. For a classic taste, use sliced pepperoni, but feel free to get creative with other keto-friendly options like sliced mushrooms, bell peppers, or olives.
  8. Finish by sprinkling the grated Parmesan cheese over the casserole for added cheesy goodness.
  9. Bake the Keto Pizza Casserole in the preheated oven for approximately 20-25 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned.
  10. Once done, remove the casserole from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
  11. Optional: Garnish with freshly chopped basil leaves for a pop of color and added freshness.

Note: Experiment with different keto-friendly toppings to personalize your Keto Pizza Casserole. You can add cooked Italian sausage, diced tomatoes, or even chopped spinach for extra nutrients.
