Low Carb Pepperoni Pizza Casserole
« on: March 16, 2019, 04:49:36 PM »
One main issue with low carb/keto recipes for pizzas is the different options for making complaint pizza dough. I've looked at many different dough recipes and find many of them to be time consuming. So the obvious solution was to deconstruct a pizza into a casserole which does not use a crust.

Ingredients:

1 lb Jimmy Dean sausage
1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
16 oz baby bella mushrooms, sliced
4 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
30 slices pepperoni slices, cut in half
½ tsp oregano
Black pepper and salt to taste (keep salt to a minimum)
Optional ingredients
Sliced black olives, sliced green peppers, diced red onion

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400ºF
Spray a 9" x 11" foil pan with nonstick spray
Drain diced tomatoes into a colander and blot dry with paper towels
Cook sausage and spread into bottom of the foil pan
Spread diced tomatoes over the sausage
Cook the mushrooms using olive oil and/or butter until the liquid is released and layer over the tomatoes
If desired, cook green peppers and red onion and spread over mushrooms
Layer the shredded Mozzarella cheese over the top of the casserole
Spread the pepperoni slices over the Mozzarella cheese
If desired, top the casserole with sliced black olives
Bake for about 20 minutes until cheese is melted and pepperoni is cooked. Serve hot

Yield: 6 Servings

Pete,

I can't see any of your photos.  It keeps wanting me to login to your Google drive, which of course I can't. So far I have this problem with all your posts.
