  • 1 pound ground Italian sausage
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) low carb marinara sauce  (I use Organico Bello)
  • 1 & 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1-2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon and 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 & 1/2 teaspoons oregano


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • On an ungreased pan, flatten sausage to form crust  (I flattened with my hands)
  • Sprinkle with 1-2 teaspoons of garlic powder and 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning
  • Place in oven for approximately 20 minutes, or until crust is mostly cooked (look for gray color, not quite browned)
  • In mixing bowl, add low carb marinara sauce, 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon oregano, 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Stir well
  • Remove partially cooked crust from oven. Layer sauce on top
  • Layer any additional ingredients. I used diced onion, diced green pepper and pepperoni
  • Carefully layer cheese on top. Sprinkle with remaining oregano
  • Place back in oven until cheese is melted, approximately 10 – 12 minutes
  • Slice and enjoy!
