I love pizza, but it’s not a low carb food. This is my close substitute, a variant of deep dish pizza, made without a crust in a casserole dish.
3 15 oz cans Don Pepino pizza sauce
2 13 oz cans mushrooms
3 8 oz bags of shredded mozzarella
44 slices pepperoni
Nutritional info for the entire pizza:
324 grams fat
275 grams protein
105 grams carbohydrates (fiber has been subtracted)
Per serving nutritional info, I get four servings out of it, you may get more or less:
81 grams fat
69 grams protein
26 grams carbohydrates
It is not super low carb, but it is fairly low carb. It’s not really LCHF (Low Carb High Fat) but it is close, if your carbs for the rest of the day really are zero.
Preheat the oven to 350F, or 325F if you use convection mode (which I do).
Drain the pizza sauce in a sieve to remove as much of the liquid as you can, so the resulting pizza will not be too soupy.
While doing that, cook the sausage in a pan.
Put a thin layer of the pizza sauce on the bottom of the casserole dish.
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce, about one packet, maybe a bit less. Then add about half of the sausage and one can of drained mushrooms.
Put another layer of cheese on top, then half the pepperonis, for my casserole dish I find I can fit 22 of them.
Then put the rest of the sausage and another drained can of mushrooms on top.
Then put the rest of the cheese on top, then put the rest of the pizza sauce on that.
Bake for one hour.
Remove, turn off the oven, and add pepperoni on top, place back in the oven and finish for about 10 or 15 minutes until the pepperoni has crisped up a bit.
