Need a quick and easy keto dinner idea?
With school back in full swing, I find myself in need of simple, yet filling dinner ideas the entire family will love. Today I’m sharing with you this delicious Crockpot pizza casserole recipe. This is the number one requested keto dinner that my boys have been requesting here lately.
Check out how easy this Crockpot keto pizza casserole is to put together by watching the YouTube video below or clicking here!
This keto Crock-Pot pizza casserole recipe is a home run, and I promise you won’t even miss the crust! It’s so hearty and filling and even your picky kiddos will love it.
Here are a couple of recipe tips to keep in mind when making keto crockpot pizza casserole:
- Add all your favorite toppings just as you would on your pizza. I love adding peppers, sausage, pepperoni, olives, and mushrooms! I do have a few picky eaters in my house that do NOT like vegetables on their pizza so when making this I put my veggie toppings on only one half of the crockpot so everyone has their favorites in one dish.
- Wondering which sauce to use? We’ve got a list of the best low carb marinara sauces here. I personally love RAO’S!
- This recipe would freeze beautifully so you can have extra on hand for those really busy nights. If you are making it to freeze, let it cool completely before adding it to a freezer-friendly container. Just pop it in the microwave, reheat, and enjoy!
Keto Crockpot Pizza Casserole
yield: 8 SERVINGS
prep time: 15 MINUTES
cook time: 4 HOURS
total time: 4 HOURS 15 MINUTES
All the flavors of pizza (but without the carby crust) cook together in the slow cooker for an easy family-friendly meal idea!
- 1 lb. ground sausage
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 6 oz. bag pepperoni slices
- 4 cups mozzarella cheese
- 8-10 slices provolone cheese
- 1/2 cup mushroom, sliced
- 1/2 cup green peppers, chopped
- 1/2 cup onions, diced
- 32 oz. jar Rao's sauce (or any keto-friendly marinara)
In a large skillet, brown sausage and ground beef. Once browned, drain and set aside.
Using an 8-quart Crock-Pot slow cooker, start by adding 1/3 cup of Rao's sauce just to cover the bottom of the Crock-Pot. This helps any ingredients from sticking.
Start with about a cup of the beef/sausage meat as the first layer. Then add a layer of pepperoni, a layer of vegetables (if you're using any), and finish with a layer of mozzarella cheese.
Repeat these layers by starting off with pizza sauce, then meat, veggies (optional), and cheese. Continue layering until you have used all toppings, ending with the shredded mozzarella.
Add sliced provolone cheese to the top. Cook on low for 4 hours.
Serve and enjoy! As an option, you can sprinkle with parmesan cheese and/or red pepper flakes for a spicy kick!

This easy pizza casserole is a weeknight winner!
This Crockpot slow cooker recipe has been a crowd-pleaser in my home and I love how simple it is to throw together. Outside of enjoying it as a meal, you could even use this casserole as a dip for celery and serve as a keto appetizer. YUMMO! 😋
My team member, Jenna, gave this recipe a test for me, and here’s what she had to say:
“This Crock-Pot pizza casserole is so tasty and filling! I had so much fun customizing the toppings. It’s funny because my boys ONLY eat the toppings off of a pizza and this is literally what this was. All the pizza flavor goodness without the carb-heavy crust!” – Jenna
If you love the crust, you’ve got to try our pork rind pizza crust recipe!
Ohhhh yeah baby! I need this in my life! What a great recipe!
Hi Ginger! We thought so too❤❤ I hope you love it!!
Looks delicious. The net carbs are a little high for me. Were donyou think most of them come from, the sauce? I would love to try this though.
Hi Jay! You could omit the peppers & onions & scale back on the sauce a bit. Or you could just divide it into smaller portions❤ Hope this helps!
My husband made this for dinner last night, not in the slow cooker/crock pot. He cooked it in the oven, OMG so delicious. It was a hit in our house, we will be making this again
Yay! Thanks for sharing with us, Karen! I’m so happy to hear it was a hit! 🙌
How long did you cook in the oven
This looks like a great recipe, what a good idea! I can’t wait to try it! I may add sundried tomatoes and replace the mushrooms for olives too, hope that won’t be too many different flavors.
Super bummed! I was making this for the first time for dinner and on the last layer of Rao’s sauce a huge piece of glass fell out of the bottom of the jar! Ugh, I had to throw it all away and report it to their customer service department. Darn my whole family was so looking forward to this for dinner tonight! Going to try to remake it next week after I get all the ingredients again. Looks soooo good!
Oh no Crystal! I’m so sorry that happened. I hope you and your family get to try this recipe out soon.
What is considered a serving size for this recipe.. I’m new to learning the keto way.
This whole pot is 8 servings. I look at the pot and visualize it in a grid of 8 to find a serving. Last time I made this, it seemed like a serving was 1 1/4 cup.
How come I made this tonight and it came out super liquidy and greasy? And followed to the tea and fully drained the meat?
Cheese & pepperoni will have grease and you may have liquid from the vegetables.
I made this tonight. And it was delicious. But way too much liquid.
Sorry to hear there was so much liquid. Maybe try patting your vegetables dry next time before adding them. Hoping that might help!
Yeah I made it too last night and noticed this morning with I was dishing it up to pack for lunch it was very liquidy and very oily and I used all the ingredients provided. And of course the picture provided did not look like mine when I scooped it up.
Thanks for letting us know how it turned out for you. Sorry to hear it was liquidy. The veggies may have added a bit of liquid. You could try patting them dry or cooking them up a bit ahead of time before adding to the recipe. Cheese and pepperoni can also sometimes add a bit of grease, depending on the brand. Hoping this helps!
What Rao’s did you use because all of the Rao’s I have found check in at 5NC instead of 4NC??
We used the Rao’s pictured above. You can also find it listed through the link above. Hope that helps!
This recipe is amazing and has been a HUGE hit with friends! Making it for Super Bowl this Sunday per their request. 😋
Aww, great game day meal for sure! Awesome to hear it has been a hit with everyone, LA! Thanks so much for your feedback!
Do you have the recipe to make it in the oven/tin pans for smaller servings?
Hi Connie! We didn’t make it that way, but I bet that could work! Let us know how it turns out if you decide to try it!
Looks delicious, my family would want some sort of pasta. How can I incorporate pasta and at what step do you think? I totally would eat as is though!
Hi there! You could try it over some cooked pasta.
Hope that helps!
Any idea how this would freeze? There are just the two of us and eating this 4 times in a row would be too much. If I can freeze it. We can space it out and I only have to cook once ♥.
If you are making it to freeze, let it cool completely before adding it to a freezer-friendly container. Just pop it in the microwave, reheat, and enjoy!
How much is a serving size?
This whole pot is 8 servings. The last time I made this, a serving was 1 1/4 cup.
This is easy and delicious. 2nd time making it. My bunco group loved it!
I’m so happy to hear how much you liked this, Sheila S! Thank YOU! 🥰😘🤗
My kitchen is being remodeled as I type this, but I am really anxious to try it out once I have a cooking space again.
How exciting! Congrats on your new remodeled kitchen! Hope you love this casserole once you get the chance to make it! 🥰🤗
