Like other Italian recipes, this one employs Italian seasoning, mozzarella cheese, and marinara sauce.
To keep it a low-carb recipe, we’ll be using cauliflower rice to cook it as a base in lieu of regular crust.

How To Make Keto Pizza Casserole
Making this pizza keto casserole is pretty straightforward.

Then proceed to cook the cauliflower rice according to the instructions on the package and set aside.
Next, combine the cooked cauliflower rice in a medium-sized bowl with salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes with the marinara sauce.

Join Our Jesus And Keto Movement
Randy and I came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective. As believers, we live our lives supported by God’s grace.
So when the Holy Spirit led us to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.
To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s prompting, we got on the path to real transformation.
Knowing firsthand the benefits of this decision, we have created a closed Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives.
We invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.
Be sure to request our FREE Jesus and Keto E-Book (First 7 Days). We hope it blesses you.
