A delicious low carb pizza casserole that will be enjoyed by all. The gluten free crust uses a simple mix of eggs, cheese, and cream so no special ingredients are needed.
In the past, I’ve made a few easy keto pizza crusts such as a cauliflower crust, coconut flour pizza crust and a deep dish pan pizza. But I wanted to work on something different this time.
Although I set out to make a casserole with pizza flavor, the end result of the recipe turned out to be more of a low carb pizza made in a casserole dish.
The crust layer is made with a mix of eggs, cream, and a variety of cheeses along with a little garlic and dried oregano seasonings.
The keto pizza needs to be made in a baking dish with sides. The mixture for the gluten free crust is thin and the baking pan needs to contain the liquid.
I used a 9×13 casserole pan, but the recipe could easily be doubled to fit into an 18×26 jelly roll pan for a party sized sheet pizza.
I’m not always successful getting my husband to eat my low carb dishes. It’s because he is very picky when it comes to food.
My husband was a little hesitant to try this low carb pizza casserole because he knew it didn’t have a regular crust. However, he loved it when he took a bite.
However, when I told him what the crust was made of he agreed to give it a try. After all, he enjoys eating scrambled eggs with cheese so there was no reason for him not to like something made with the same ingredients.
After taking a bite, my husband actually told me it was one of the best low carb dishes I have ever made. That’s when I knew the recipe would be a success!
If he liked it, I know others are going to love this one keto friendly pizza. It really does taste just like a regular pizza with a soft thick crust. And, there are no special ingredients needed to make the delicious low carb pizza casserole.
We actually enjoyed this pizza so much that I made another one two days later with some vegetables added on top.
I’m also planning to make this casserole in a larger sheet pan size for my daughter’s birthday party. That way, I’ll have a low carb choice in addition to regular pizzas.
I’m sure that once others give the thick crust pizza a try, they may not even bother with the high carb ones anymore. And, it’s sure to win over those who are gluten free.
Some have even told me that they love this low carb pizza casserole better than the popular Fat Head one. I love that there’s no need to roll out a dough with this recipe.
And, it’s made with regular everyday ingredients. So you won’t have to worry about buying any expensive low carb flour.
However, if you have an egg sensitivity, you’ll definitely want to find another recipe for my egg-free Fat Head dough.
The pizza crust used in this recipe is really just a high cheese omelette. But, with the sauce and toppings added, no one has been able to tell it’s an egg based crust.
Although the other low carb pizza recipes are also great, I always go back to this low carb pizza casserole. Why? Because it’s the easiest to make.
Just give the recipe a try and see for yourself. My sister shared the recipe with her friends on Facebook and it went viral within her community.
You can also change up the flavor by using different cheese and toppings. You will want to keep the mozzarella and it gives the crust a good texture.
I’ve also changed up the sauce and turned this basic recipe into a gourmet low carb white pizzatopped with spinach, bacon, blue cheese, and sliced tomatoes. There’s really endless ways to customize the recipe.
