Is Pizza Keto Friendly?

Traditional pizza is certainly not keto friendly. Regardless of the crust type, the carb counts will be high as pizza crust is typically full of high carb ingredients.

Of course, you can always make a keto friendly pizza (check out single serve keto pizza), however, it’s much less work to do a crustless pizza like this!

You can often find crustless pizza at many pizza chains, but those are typically pretty spendy.

If you are worried that these keto pizza bowls will put you over your carb count, not to worry! Each serving has just 4 net carbs per serving, which is low enough that you won’t need to stress about it affecting your macros.

This recipe makes 12 servings.

Low carb pizza bowls are awesome for busy weeknights because it takes just 20 minutes of prep time and a max of 20 minutes of cook time. It’s perfect for nights when you don’t have hours to spend cooking and prepping because start to finish, you’ll be enjoying this flavor packed meal in well under an hour.

How to Store Keto Pizza Bowls

These pizza bowls don’t freeze well, so it’s best to keep them in an airtight container in the fridge. They are best if eaten within a day or two.

To reheat, place the pizza bowls on a baking sheet and cook at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling and the toppings are warmed through.

You can also reheat them in the microwave, although I definitely recommend the oven.

Tips for Making the Best Keto Pizza Bowls

These pizza bowls come out delicious as is, but there are some tips that you can follow to make them taste even better!

  • Broiling for 2 minutes after cooking adds a nicely browned top.
  • If you decide to add veggies to your pizza bowl, toss your veggies in to saute them first. This isn’t a requirement, but I find that it adds another layer of flavor and ensures that they are cooked through completely.

Can These Low Carb Pizza Bowls Be Customized?

These low carb pizza bowls are mouth watering, but you are welcome to change them up if you want. The great thing about pizza, as we mentioned earlier, is that it can always change! You can add any toppings you want. You can change meats, literally anything!

Here are some of my favorites:

Make it Vegetarian

Whether you are vegetarian or not, veggie pizzas are delicious! You can simply opt out of the meat in these pizza bowls and enjoy a veggie filled version. Add any vegetables that you want (as long as they are keto friendly, of course).

Make it a Meat Lovers

If you want to go in the opposite direction, you can add whatever and as many meats as you would like! Pepperoni, sausage, ground beef, Canadian bacon, it doesn’t matter. The sky is the limit!
