The Best Low Carb Pizza
I have always loved pizza. Homemade is my favorite too since all the way back to my childhood when my mom would get the kits and we could all make our own. This is that food nostalgia I often talk about. Even in adulthood, pizza is an easy favorite too.
I really love margherita pizza and my friend Sherry has the best MARGHERITA PIZZA RECIPE that I have ever found! So it was just fitting that I find a way to make my pizza love happen when I chose to get a bit healthier.
Low Carb Pepperoni Pizza Casserole has become an easy favorite here. Getting those vegetables in has never been so easy and delicious all at the same time. We have spent the better part of the year cleaning up some of our favorite recipes with some healthy swaps. Recipes like our CRAB STUFFED MUSHROOMS and NO SUGAR ADDED OATMEAL COOKIES show anyone how a few healthy swaps can make a big impact.

How to Make Pizza Casserole
We do a couple of things ahead of time and use a few shortcuts to make this mix and pour casserole easy and delicious.
Preheat oven to 350°. Slice chicken sausage and brown in a skillet. Drain and cool. Set aside. In a large bowl, add in sausage.
Add minced garlic, basil, oregano, onion powder, salt and pepper.
Mix in the raw, riced cauliflower, parmesan cheese, about ⅔ of the turkey pepperoni that you diced before hand and marinara. Stir to mix well. Pour in a 8.5 X 11 casserole dish or 10 inch cast iron skillet. Spread evenly. Top with mozzarella cheese and reserved whole slices of pepperoni. Bake for 20-30 minutes until melted and slightly brown on top.
Serve with your favorite salad or side and enjoy!
After cooling to room temperature this will keep in an airtight container for up to a week. Take out what you need and reheat in single servings.
Tips and Tricks
