keto lasagna recipe

Fall in love with lasagna all over again!

What if I told you that this delicious keto lasagna recipe actually tastes like high-carb lasagna!? Awesome, right? 

Keto Lasagna Ingredients

Try making lasagna with strips of Fat Head dough to replace noodles. Just make a batch of this popular mozzarella cheese and almond meal based dough, then continue compiling your lasagna. Trust me – this is a genius idea!

Sometimes it’s hard to find meal ideas that the entire family will enjoy. This recipe does not disappoint! The kids will LOVE it, too!


Keto Lasagna - Mixing up in pan

Make a delicious meat sauce on the stove using both sausage and ground beef. Then build layers of sauce, cheeses, and noodles. SO good.

This recipe is easy to adapt to whatever you and your family like by using different cheeses, spices, etc. For instance, my kids don’t care for ricotta, so I just used a small amount. You can even skip it or use cream cheese instead.

Easy Keto Lasagna

Hip Tip: I used a low carb Marinara sauce for convenience, but you can make your own low-carb sauce with crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, and Italian herbs.

Low Carb Keto Lasagna

This keto lasagna tastes like traditional lasagna!

It’s really rich and on the dense side, so a smaller slice is very filling. I love that this is such a kid-friendly recipe, too. Hooray!

Hip Tip: This is a large batch of lasagna, and the leftovers will re-heat and/or freeze well.

    Made this, was delicious and way better than zucchini noodles I didn’t even miss the regular carb heavy noodles!

    • Lina D

      Awesome! Thanks for sharing! I agree – so delicious ?

  2. Kathy

    I just made this, it’s very tasty, but how big is oneserving and how many calories per one serving? Thanks!

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi there! This makes 8 servings and there are 836 calories per serving! Hope that helps!

  3. Erika

    I will surly give this a try. I just wonder if I could use this pasta recipe for all other pasta recepies ?

    • Lina D

      This is more like a bread – so not sure it would work like regular pasta ?.

  4. Jayde Herriford

    Do you think I could assemble this and then put it in the fridge and back the next evening? Trying to prep for a birthday party.

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      That should work! Be sure to cover it with tinfoil to keep it from drying out! 🙂

    • Lina D

      Yes I do believe that would work! Thanks ?

  5. Jayde Herriford

    Perfect thank you!!!

  6. syeo2013

    Made it yesterday. Rather heavy and very time consuming. Didn’t prefer the keto “noodles”. Will try zucchini next time. Thanks for the idea though! 🙂

    • Lina D

      Oh interesting! Thanks for sharing ?

  7. Miranda

    Can this be frozen before baking?

    • Lina

      Hi Miranda- yes I’m sure this can be frozen like a traditional lasagna, then cooked. Great idea thanks!

  8. Peggy

    I am trying to find a dumplins recipe can you help?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Peggy! We hope to have one posted soon! Stay tuned!

    Hi Lina, I just made my first fat head dough pizza and it wasn’t bad but it stuck to my pizza stone and I could pry it off with a metal spatula (will use parchment next time). That being said. When I used to make lasagna with regular noodles I would put down the first layer as noodles. Can I do that with FH dough or will it stick without some kind of barrier. The only thing I can think of besides parchment is some kind of fat either bacon or oil. Or maybe I will just make a sheet of the dough first bake it and use some of the strips as a bottom crust. What do you think?? Thank you for taking the time to answer and for your blog 🙂

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hi Leslie, yes this is a very sticky dough that needs parchment paper for sure. Darn so sorry you had issues. And then for lasagna your need to bake noodles first and start compiling with the sauce at bottom, as instructed. Hope that helps!

      • Kathy W.

        Hi, l have made lasagna all my life (70 now), and I’ve always put a layer of gravy (sauce) down first in the pan or casserole dish before I put my first layer of noodles. Never had a problem. Good Luck!

  10. Leslie George

    OOOPS Lina, I just read through your recipe and you do bake the dough first. But I am still wondering if I can lay a layer of it down first. Thanks 🙂

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I would follow instructions as is and layer sauce first, so there’s less likely a chance to stick to pan. Yep and bake the fathead noodles first- Thanks!

  11. Brenda Smith

    If i omit the onion and bell pepper from this how many net carbs would it be

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Per My Fitness Pal calculations you’ll save 1 net carb by eliminating those – per serving. Hope that helps!

  12. Larry

    This sounds good but can’t make it because of nut allergies

    • Traci Haney

      You should try a version of fathead dough that uses coconut flour instead.

    • Teresa

      To make fathead dough with coconut flour use 1/3 cup and add an extra egg.

  13. LanaClark

    So easy to make and absolutely delicious!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh we’re so glad to hear that Lana! Thanks for stopping by!

  14. Margaret

    If you leave out the egg the dough is more workable ,I never use an egg in mine I make a meat pie that awesome

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the suggestion, Margaret!

  15. Joseph M.

    Hello. If you bake the noodles first, when you put everything together to bake again. Would the noodles get to hard with the addidtional baking?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      In this case no. Not with the sauce and cheese. As written, the recipe has great texture. Thanks!
