Start spreading the keto pizza news! 🍕

Ever since Papa Murphy’s Pizza came out with their Crustless Keto Pizza, I’ve been a little jealous. Sadly, there’s no Papa Murphy’s in my part of Atlanta, so I had serious keto fast food envy… until now! Marco’s Pizza recently introduced Crustless Pizza Bowls, and friends, I am so here for it!

And just like the Papa Murphy’s crustless pizza, these pizza bowls are also technically pizza casseroles – but they are so delicious, and a great way to keep it keto on family pizza night!

If you’re not familiar with Marco’s Pizza, they have several locations scattered throughout the United States, especially in the midwest and southern states. Their traditional pizza is pretty yummy so these pizza bowls let you get that delicious pizza flavor without all the added carbs!

Here are Marco’s Crustless Pizza Bowl menu options:

All Meat Crustless Pizza Bowl

Serving Size: 1/2 Bowl | 710 calories | Fat: 54g | Total Carbs: 14g | Protein: 46g | Fiber: 1g | Sugars 5g | Net Carbs 13g
(see our hack below to make this bowl around 7g net carbs per serving)

Crustless pizza with pepperoni, ham, Italian sausage, and bacon, baked with original sauce and signature three cheeses, topped with romesan seasoning (a parmesan-based seasoning with Italian herbs and spices).

This is my favorite pizza bowl available from Marco’s! It has all of the meats that I would normally order on a pizza and is very filling. I typically make my own bowl last for four meals and add a side salad to fill me up.

Deluxe Crustless Pizza Bowl

Serving Size: 1/2 Bowl | 580 calories | Fat: 44g | Total Carbs: 17g | Protein: 34g | Fiber: 2g | Sugars 6g | Net Carbs 15g
(see our hack below to make this bowl around 9g net carbs per serving)

Crustless pizza with pepperoni, Italian sausage, mushrooms, green peppers, and onions, baked with original sauce and signature three cheeses, topped with romesan seasoning.

If you love peppers and onions, this is the bowl for you! It reminds me of a sandwich that I’ve had before and is very flavorful with a kick.

Garden Crustless Pizza Bowl

Serving Size: 1/2 Bowl | 540 calories | Fat: 40g | Total Carbs: 19g | Protein: 28g | Fiber: 2g | Sugars 8g | Net Carbs 17g
(see our hack below to make this bowl around 11g net carbs per serving)

Crustless pizza with mushrooms, black olives, onions, and sliced tomatoes, baked with original sauce and signature three cheeses, plus feta, topped with romesan seasoning and garlic sauce.

If you’re taking a break from meat, then Marco’s has you covered with this garden crustless pizza bowl. My daughter loves to order this bowl with extra olives and mushrooms!

While 13g up to 17g of net carbs is pretty hefty, compared to traditional pizza, it’s still a great low-carb option. If you want to really bring the carbs down even lower, though, ask for it without the pizza sauce! I do this and get extra cheese instead and I really don’t miss the sauce.

By removing sauce from the bowl, you’ll shave off about 4-5g of sugar, and save about 6g carbs total, bringing your net carbs down to around 7-11g, which is pretty sweet if you ask me! On the garden bowl, you can also remove the onions to bring down the carb count, too.

Hip Tip: Marco’s has a pretty sweet nutritional breakdown and calculator on their site where it will adjust the macros based on the items you add or subtract to your entree. Please note that the keto bowls are not currently available on the calculator, but most of their keto menu items are including the Meatball Bake, Salads, and Wings.

But wait… there’s more!

Marco’s also has a Meatball Bake side item that I’ve been ordering long before they introduced their pizza bowls. It’s basically the same thing as a pizza bowl with no crust and consists of Meatballs, cheese, and sauce. Their meatballs have NO fillers (like breadcrumbs), so you can either ask for light sauce or no sauce to make it even more keto-friendly – and it is so yummy! 😋

Serving Size: 1/2 Order | 880 calories | Fat: 68g | Total Carbs: 19g | Protein: 55g | Fiber: 3g | Sugars 4g | Net Carbs 16g

*Ask for no sauce and it drops down to about 11g net carbs per serving, which is half the pan. I typically just eat 1/4 of the pan since the meal is so hearty which brings it down to about 5.5 carbs, have a small side salad, and it’s a delicious low carb meal.

What if ya want to enjoy wings while keeping it keto at Marco’s?

Well, you’re in luck! Marco’s has two delicious chicken wing options to choose from that are just 1 net carb per wing! YES! Oh, how I love chicken wings, they are so delicious and you almost feel like you’re cheating, but you’re not!

Hot Chicken Wings

Serving Size: 1 Wing | 100 calories | Fat: 7g | Total Carbs: 1g | Protein: 8g | Fiber: 0g | Sugars 0g | Net Carbs 1g

Plain Chicken Wings

Serving Size: 1 Wing | 100 calories | Fat: 7g | Total Carbs: 1g | Protein: 8g | Fiber: 0g | Sugars 0g | Net Carbs 1g

Looking for something a little lighter at Marco’s? Enjoy a keto-friendly salad!

Italian Chef Salad

Serving Size: 1/2 Salad | 160 calories | Fat: 11g | Total Carbs: 5g | Protein: 12g | Fiber: 2g | Sugars 3g | Net Carbs 3g

    These are so good!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! SO glad to hear you have enjoyed them! Thanks for commenting!

  2. ivan18sam

    I am going to try this today.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! Hope you love it!

  3. Christal

    They are pretty good about putting their sandwiches in bowls too if you deselect the “white” box in the bread area during customization. They had to call and ask the first time but ever since it’s been seamless.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thank you! That’s awesome!

  4. Deedee

    Hey. What’s the sodium content?
    Thank you.

  5. Jasmine Sadler

    The nutrition numbers are off in some parts, especially the salads are off here. The Greek Salad is 6 carbs for 1/2 salad. Thanks. I never would have thought to consider Marcos. Everything is on the website.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome! Thank YOU for commenting! We’ll be sure to look at this again!

  6. tiffany

    We love their crustless pizza–easy to customize, too! If any one is missing the bread, some chaffles are easy to whip up to add for a personal pizza. Or cut in sticks for “bread” sticks.

    • tiffany

      We add a little Italian seasoning to them.

      • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks for the tips, tiffany!

  7. Deborah

    Just had the garden bowl, it was terrible . all onions didnt get 1 black olive. Some tomato slices. Mostly sauce with some cheese cheese. Will never order again

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I’m sorry you had such a bad experience, Deborah. It may be worth leaving feedback with their manager.

  8. Beth Wilmont

    I had the Deluxe bowl and asked for no sauce with extra cheese….was super yummy and was nice that I could order take out with my office team…can’t always do that from other places. It was also at lease two servings and I took the rest home for dinner.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SO Awesome that you could enjoy take out with the rest of the office, Beth! Thanks for sharing your experience!

  9. meblackburn

    I ❤ Marco’s!!! I’m in VA now (no Marco’s), but awesome to hear they have keto options!!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      If you go back to visit, then you know what you can order!

  10. Stacey Brock

    The meatball bake does have breadcrumbs and corn syrup.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Stacey! We did find that they confirm, that is not included over in this thread on their Facebook page. Hoping that helps!

  11. wana jk

    Thank you for this! I’ve been looking for a nice keto place. I have Marcos near my home!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Oh perfect! You’re so welcome! Enjoy!

  12. Diane C

    I tried the deluxe and all meats bowls today. Delicious. Marco’s site now has nutrition for bowls posted and they are higher than other sites have posted for 1/2 bowls.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for sharing with us! We have updated the nutritional values.

  13. Jesse

    Was excited about the bowls, till I saw that they contain transfat. Won’t be eating these.

  14. Rick

    Holy moly, your numbers are not even CLOSE to what they have on Nutritionix.
    I almost ordered the All Meat Pizza Bowl that you have as 14 total carbs for half a bowl. The website says 47 carbs!!!

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Hmm, how strange. Thanks for asking about this, Eric! We’ll look into this!

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Hello again! We tested this out again, and it seems if you get it without the seasoning, it will show the 14 carbs. We have reached out to them for clarification.

          • Dan

            Did you ever get clarification? 14 is decent, 47 is not.

            • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

              They did not get back with us, Dan!
