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

 Books available on Amazon.


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • On an un-greased pan, flatten sausage to form crust  (I flatten with my hands)
  • Sprinkle with 1-2 tsp garlic powder and 1 tbsp 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 tsp Italian seasoning, 1/2 tsp oregano, 1/2 tbsp minced garlic, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper. Stir well.
  • Remove partially cooked crust from oven. Layer sauce on top.
  • Layer any additional ingredients. I add diced onion, diced green pepper and pepperoni.
  • Carefully layer cheese on top. Sprinkle with remaining oregano.
  • Place back in oven until cheese is melted, approx. 10 – 12 minutes.
  • Slice and enjoy!
