Here’s how we easily eat keto at pizza restaurants!
Keto pizza restaurants are a thing!
Despite popular belief, you can absolutely go out to pizza places and enjoy a satisfying keto dinner. 🙌
Pizza can actually be a pretty solid meal choice when you take out the carby crust. While the topping choices are totally up to you, there are a few general tips & tricks you can use to keep your meals low-carb while dining at pizza restaurants, even if they don’t have keto options.
Easy rules for successful keto pizza restaurant ordering:
- Skip (almost) all crusts even if they seem keto.
- Stick to water or unsweetened tea to drink.
- Order sauces on the side.
- Avoid anything breaded.
- When in doubt, leave it out.
Disclaimer: As you can probably guess, these options fall into the “dirty keto” category for a lot of folks, so just keep that in mind when deciding if these keto pizza restaurants are right for you!
First, a word of warning about cauliflower crusts…
There are several chains that can make keto-friendly pizzas, and you’ll see cauliflower crust on some of their menus. While we typically love using cauliflower in keto recipes, be aware that the cauliflower pizza crusts found at these restaurants are generally NOT keto as they’re usually made with rice flour.
They’re great for gluten-free eaters, but if you’re on keto, it’s really best to play it safe and opt for crustless pizza altogether.
Here’s a trick for seriously reducing the net carb count of your crustless pizzas.
You’ll notice that some net carb counts are way higher than others, and that’s generally because they include tomato sauce. Even without any sugar added, tomato sauce tends to be higher in carbs and it’s easy to overindulge.
A quick trick for eliminating a portion of those unwanted carbs is simply getting rid of the tomato sauce altogether or ordering a different one.
These make tasty, low-carb alternatives to regular pizza sauce:
- Alfredo Sauce (¼ Cup): 80 Calories | 7g Fat | 2g Total Carbs | 0g Fiber | 1g Sugar | 2g Protein | 2g Net Carbs
- Basil Pesto (2 Tbsp.): 110 Calories | 11g Fat | 1g Total Carbs | 1g Fiber | 0g Sugar | 1g Protein | 0g Net Carbs
- Buffalo Sauce (¼ Cup): 40 Calories | 4g Fat | 1g Total Carbs | 0g Fiber | 0g Sugar | 0g Protein | 1g Net Carbs
- Olive Oil (2 Tbsp.): 240 Calories | 28g Fat | 0g Total Carbs | 0g Fiber | 0g Sugar | 0g Protein | 0g Net Carbs
- Ranch (¼ Cup): 240 Calories | 26g Fat | 3g Total Carbs | 0g Fiber | 3g Sugar | 0g Protein | 3g Net Carbs
Of course, you can always order takeout and add your own favorite low-carb pizza sauce (or even marinara sauce!) at home. 😋
Wanna add pizza toppings? You have a ton to choose from!
Most traditional pizza toppings are keto-friendly, so the world is really your oyster when it comes to ordering.
Here are some ideas as to what you can add on top:
- Anchovies: 95 Calories | 4g Fat | 0g Total Carbs | 0g Dietary Fiber | 0g Sugar | 13g Protein | 0g Net Carbs
- Banana Peppers: 0 Calories | 0g Fat | 0g Total Carbs | 0g Dietary Fiber | 0g Sugar | 0g Protein | 0g Net Carbs

Even though every keto pizza restaurant will vary a little when it comes to menu items, most of them will have those basic options available.
With all that being said, let’s get into which restaurants make eating keto at a pizza place easy!
Blaze Pizza – Best keto pizza restaurant if you’d like to eat a traditional pizza with crust!
“I’ll have a pizza on keto crust, please.”
I know, I know, I just said to avoid crusts when you wanna keep it keto at a pizza place–but Blaze is the exception to the rule! 😆 While they do have a cauliflower option, they also offer a separate keto crust (also made with cauliflower) that only has 2g net carbs per serving.
It’s only available in the 11″ size, but whether you stick to one slice or eat the whole pizza, you won’t blow through your daily carb limit in one sitting.
- Blaze Keto Pizza Crust: Serving Size 1 Slice | 70 Calories | 2.5g Fat | 2g Total Carbs | 1g Fiber | <1g Sugar | 9g Protein | 1g Net Carbs
Papa Murphy’s – best keto pizza restaurant for the most filling crustless pizza!
“I’ll have the crustless take and bake pizza, please.”
If you’re looking for a somewhat non-traditional pizza experience, head to Papa Murphy’s to grab a “take and bake” pizza to make at home. They have five crustless keto options available which all contain 4g net carbs or less per serving. Sweet!
Each pizza is divided into eight servings. Here’s the nutrition info based on Papa Murphy’s nutrition calculator:
- Chicken Bacon Artichoke Pizza: 150 Calories | 11g Fat | 3g Total Carbs | <1g Fiber | <1g Sugar | 11g Protein | 3g Net Carbs
- Gourmet Vegetarian Crustless Pizza: 130 Calories | 10g Fat | 3g Total Carbs | <1g Fiber | <1g Sugar | 8g Protein | 3g Net Carbs
- Cowboy Crustless Pizza: 180 Calories | 14g Fat | 4g Total Carbs | 0g Fiber | 2g Sugar | 10g Protein | 4g Net Carbs
- Papa’s All Meat Crustless Pizza: 160 Calories | 12g Fat | 3g Total Carbs | 0g Fiber | 2g Sugar | 10g Protein | 3g Net Carbs
- Papa’s Favorite Crustless Pizza: 1/8 Pizza | 160 Calories | 13g Fat | 4g Total Carbs | <1g Fiber | 2g Sugars | 9g Protein | 4g Net Carbs
Did you know? We actually tried Papa Murphy’s crustless pizzas ourselves–see what we thought here!
Marco’s Pizza – keto pizza restaurant that’s home to the pizza bowls!
“I’ll have the crustless pizza bowl, please.”
Just like Papa Murphy’s, Marco’s makes it easy to keep it keto at a pizza place with their crustless pizza bowls. You can choose from their specialty bowls or create your own custom pizza bowl with whatever you please.
One serving size is defined as ½ a pizza bowl. That’s a good amount and the heftier carb counts reflect that, but as we mentioned earlier, you can nix the marinara sauce (or order it on the side) to make the pizzas even more keto-friendly.
Here’s the nutrition info for ½ a crustless pizza bowl based on Marco’s nutrition guide.
- All Meat Crustless Pizza Bowl: 630 Calories | 46g Fat | 12g Total Carbs | 1g Fiber | 6g Sugar| 41g Protein | 11g Net Carbs
- Deluxe Pizza Bowl: 520 Calories | 38g Fat | 14g Total Carbs | 2g Fiber | 7g Sugar | 29g Protein | 12g Net Carbs
- Garden Pizza Bowl: 420 Calories | 30g Fat | 15g Total Carbs | 2g Fiber | 7g Sugar | 23g Protein | 13g Net Carbs
- Buffalo Chicken Pizza Bowl: 440 Calories | 30g Fat | 7g Total Carbs | <1g Fiber | 1g Sugar | 33g Protein | <7g Net Carbs
- The Philly Pizza Bowl: 340 Calories | 21g Fat | 8g Total Carbs | <1g Fiber | 3g Sugar | 23g Protein | <8g Net Carbs
Note: All specialty bowls may not be available at all Marco’s locations–check the restaurants nearest you to see their menu options.
Want something different? Snag one of Marco’s Meatball Bakes!
Unlike a lot of other pizza restaurants, Marco’s doesn’t use any breadcrumbs or fillers in their meatballs. All you get is meaty, cheesy keto goodness that you can enjoy for only 11g net carbs per serving. 🙌
- Meatball Bake: 790 Calories | 43g Fat | 13g Total Carbs | 2g Fiber | 6g Sugar | 55g Protein | 11g Net Carbs
Although the serving size is ½ a bake, I usually only find myself eating ¼ because the meal is so hearty. That brings the net carb count down to about 6g per serving including the tomato sauce.
Mazzio’s Pizza – The only keto pizza restaurant that offers a keto-specific nutrition guide!
Mazzio’s also has a variety of specialty and custom pizza bowls to choose from, but what sets them apart is their Keto-Specific Nutrition Guide. They put together a list of all their low-carb options so keto eaters don’t have to filter through regular items to find what they can order. Honestly, it’d be so nice if every restaurant did that. 😅
While Mazzio’s technically offers 13 keto pizza bowl options, we’d recommend avoiding the Taco Pizza Bowl as it contains around 13g net carbs per serving.
Here’s the breakdown for the lowest net carb pizza bowls based on their Keto Nutrition Guide:
* Note that 1 serving is ½ a pizza bowl.
- Four Meat Pizza Bowl: 333 Calories | 30g Fat | 4.65g Total Carbs | 1.3g Fiber | 1.4g Sugar | 21g Protein | 3.35g Net Carbs
- Six Meat Pizza: 393 Calories | 33g Fat | 4.8g Total Carbs | 1.35g Fiber | 1.55g Sugar | 21g Protein | 3.45g Net Carbs
- Chicken Club Pizza Bowl: 213 calories | 15g Fat | 4.7g Total Carbs | 0.85g Fiber | 1.75g Sugar | 21g Protein | 3.85g Net Carbs
- Greek Pizza Bowl: 333 Calories | 30g Fat | 5.8g TotalCarbs | 1.1g Fiber | 0.8g Sugar | 21g Protein | 4g Net Carbs
- Chicken Spinach Alfredo Pizza Bowl: 243 Calories | 18g Fat | 5.2g Total Carbs | 1.2g Fiber | 0.8g Sugar | 21g Protein | 4g Net Carbs
- Chicken Bacon Alfredo Pizza Bowl: 306 calories | 21g Fat | 5.1g Total Carbs | 0.9g Fiber | 1.6g Sugar | 24g Protein | 4.2g Net Carbs
- Combo Pizza Bowl: 243 Calories | 21g Fat | 7.3g Total Carbs | 2.1g Fiber | 2.2g Sugar | 15g Protein | 5.2g Net Carbs
Lou Malnati’s – This keto pizza restaurant serves up crustless Chicago-Style pizza!
Prefer deep dish pizza? Lou Malnati’s serves up crustless, keto-friendly, Chicago-style pizza on top of a sausage and mozzarella crust. The pizza comes plain, but you can add all your favorite toppings when ordering.
Several Hip team members are lucky enough to live near one, and think it’s the best pizza around, and my Hip teammate, Jessica, said her fam actually preferred the keto crustless pizza to the regular deep dish!
- Crustless Cheese Pizza: Serving Size 131g | 300 Calories | 21g Fat | 3g Total Carbs | 0g Fiber | 2g Sugar | 23g Protein | 3g Net Carbs
The downside is that Lou Malnati’s only has a little under 60 locations in the US, so you may not be close enough to order for pick-up. Luckily, they’ll ship their crustless pizzas anywhere in the country! Just visit their website, pick how many pizzas you’d like to order, and they’ll show up at your door ready to cook.
But do we really ever eat pizza by itself?
It’s almost always accompanied by wings, and luckily, you can still enjoy those regularly on keto!
There are just a few things to keep an eye out for while ordering chicken wings:
- Avoid boneless wings as they’re almost always breaded.
- Skip any “Nashville Hot” options as those are often breaded as well. Other common flavors to pass on include Sweet Chili, Teriyaki, Honey Garlic, BBQ, and Jerk seasoning due to the added sugar.
- Order sauce on the side. Buffalo, Lemon Pepper, and Garlic Parmesan are common & safe bets.
- Use keto-friendly dipping sauces (ranch, blue cheese, etc.) to add flavor instead.
- Don’t be afraid to ask questions. It’s totally fine to ask about breading, nutrition info, etc. to be sure you’re ordering what you want.
Although these keto pizza restaurants are located in a lot of cities, it’s always worth it to give your local pizza joint a call to see if they have any keto options as well! You may be surprised at what they have to offer. 🙌
And as you can see, with a little creativity & planning, you can enjoy just about any meal while keeping it keto. 😉
