keto pizza salad with zesty italian dressing

We love a good salad with lots of toppings as an easy keto dinner idea!

This hearty pizza salad is full of delicious meat, cheese, and bright veggie toppings, and bursting with lots of bold flavors from our 5-minute homemade keto Italian vinaigrette dressing.

All of these low carb toppings like pepperoni, mushrooms, olives, and mozzarella cheese are popular pizza toppings, which is why I’m calling it a pizza salad!

Really the beauty of a large salad like this is you can omit or add any keto ingredients YOU love. These are suggestions and can also be a great opportunity to use up odds and ends in the fridge you may have on hand, as well as use the cheese and meat combos you enjoy.

If you’re newer to keto, check out our keto veggie guide to find out which ones are best.

Hip Recipe Tips: 

    • The key to a great salad is chopping everything well, including the lettuce, so you get multiple items in one bite. Make sure to run the lettuce through a salad spinner to get the moisture out so it’ll be nice and crispy.
    • You’ll need a keto sweetener to balance the apple cider vinegar and dijon mustard in the salad dressing. I used Swerve granular and it turned out great. Feel free to use your favorite sweetener to taste. Remember: salad dressing is easy to taste and tweak to your taste buds! 
    • This recipe makes a 5 oz jar of salad dressing so you may have some leftover. It can be stored in the fridge for up to a week. Just shake well before using.
    • In fact, salad dressings taste even better over time, so consider making the dressing a little ahead of time for optimum flavor (though, it’s not required).
