Keto Pizza Sauce
Are you ready for the LAST keto pizza sauce that you’ll never need? Great. Read on! This could even pass as a marinara sauce, a dipping sauce, OR …..
Keto Pizza and Marinara Sauce
I created my first keto pizza tonight. My own recipe – a twist on fathead dough was the base and it was AMAZING. I mean UHHHH-MAZING!
I really wanted to create my own sauce. Something with a little kick but not with an overwhelming non-pizza-sauce flavor. But here’s the thing, my lasagna marinara sauce can really double as both. It is amazingly versatile.
Sauce and tomatoes are tough, though. While I don’t believe we need to stay away from tomatoes, I do think we need to be mindful of the carb count in them no matter how we eat them.
This keto sauce turned out to be quite versatile. I’m thinking it might even be my sauce of choice to dip my keto cheese bread bites into. Hmm….

Without further ado, let’s dive into the flavors of choice for this sauce.
Fire Roasted Tomatoes – if you want to spice up tomatoes, this is the way to do it. AND you can buy it!
This just adds a, well, fire flavor. Not too spicy, but just enough!
Italian Seasoning – I chose Italian Seasoning because this is keto PIZZA SAUCE! And because Italian Seasoning just makes everything taste better, right?
Garlic and Onion – What don’t you use these spices with? Anyone?
See, I’m one of those weird people that LOVES a good pizza sauce or marinara sauce, but I cannot stand tomatoes. I refuse to eat them whole or even eat chunks.
So, for all those out there like me, you’ll be happy to know this sauce has NO chunks!
Sauce/Frying Pan – This sauce calls for heating it up to blend the flavors. I use a frying pan so it is wide, but you can use a regular saucepan as well.
Mason Jars – if you plan to store any of this sauce, it keeps very well in mason jars!
As I said above, tomato-based sauces can be high in carbs. Even keto ones.
The serving size for this is 1/4 cup and it is about 1.8 net carbs. Not too bad.
It makes about 3 cups, so there are 12 servings. I store them in mason jars until I’m ready to use it!
