Low Carb Sausage Crust Pizza

Today we tried this recipe. My husband found it on the Rebel with a Spatula blog.  It was good but would have been better if I hadn't made the sausage crust as thick as I did.   My husband liked it as is.  Picture isn't the greatest since I had to use my phone since I forgot to charge my camera's battery.

Low Carb Sausage Crust Pizza 

  • 2 pounds sausage 
  • 1 - 8oz can unsweetened tomato sauce (about 9 carbs)
  • 6 oz cheese
  • ½ cup parmesan
  • ½ Red onion, chopped fine
  • 6 cloves garlic, chopped fine
  • 3 tablespoons Italian herbs dry, ½ cup fresh
  • ½ stick butter
  • salt and pepper

Press ground sausage into a deep cookie sheet, right to the edges and flat, but not too thin because it will shrink up as it bakes.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cover the top of the raw sausage with some salt and pepper and an even coating of the parmesan.  Put into the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until edges are nice and brown.

In a frying pan on medium, melt the butter and add red onion and garlic.  Add salt to sweat them for 5-6 minutes.  Turn off the heat.

In a bowl mix the tomato sauce, cooked onions and garlic, add the basil, and mix.  Allow to sit while sausage crust bakes.  

Spread sauce mixture on sausage crust, leaving the oven on.  Add more parmesan and shredded cheese. Add all the toppings you want.  Return to oven for 20 minutes or until it’s the way you like it.  

Allow to sit for 10 minutes before slicing.
