Low Carb Pizza Casserole 🍕

  

So, this was supposed to be some extravagant layered pizza with perfect slices, but I was lacking some ingredients and threw this together and hoped it was edible. Surprisingly it was really good, both of my kids liked it! Score! 

Here’s what you need:

  • 1lb ground Italian sausage 
  • 16 oz low carb pizza sauce (Ragu)
  • 1 onion, chopped 
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella 
  • 20 (more or less) pepperonis 
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350. Sautée onion and green pepper, add it sausage, cook and stir in pizza sauce. Place in baking dish and top with cheese and cheese pepperoni, bake 30 mins.

Low Carb Ricotta Cheesecake 

  
This is super easy to make, 50 mins top, because when I want cheesecake I don’t want to wait 8 hours, and yes, there’s a lot of low carb cheesecakes that take that long to make! 😜

1.8 carbs per slice 😍

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tsp (more or less pending on taste) pyure organic stevia blend (or your favorite sweetener)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Dash of cinnamon 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Mix ricotta, stevia, vanilla and cinnamon together. Add both eggs, stir well and pour into greased baking dish. Bake 45 minutes or until sides are lightly browned. 

✏️Notes: Makes 8 servings, pending on your carb intake blueberries or strawberries would taste great on this! You can also play around with adding sugar free syrups to add more flavor!
