Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).
Prepare the Sausage Crust:
Take the pork sausage out of its casing and place it in a large, oven-safe skillet or a baking dish.
Use your hands or a spatula to evenly spread the sausage across the bottom of the skillet, forming a “crust” that covers the entire surface.
Bake the Sausage Crust:
Place the skillet or baking dish in the preheated oven.
Bake the sausage crust for approximately 20 minutes or until it’s cooked through and slightly browned. Cooking time may vary depending on your oven, so keep an eye on it to avoid overcooking.
Add Marinara Sauce:
Once the sausage crust is done, remove it from the oven.
Carefully drain any excess grease from the skillet or baking dish.
Layer with Marinara and Cheese:
Spread the marinara sauce evenly over the cooked sausage crust.
Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce, ensuring it covers the entire surface.
Now, it’s time to get creative! Add your favorite pizza toppings on the cheese layer. Whether you love pepperoni, bell peppers, olives, or any other keto-friendly toppings, go ahead and arrange them to your liking.
Broil for Cheese Melting:
Set your oven to broil mode (usually around 500 degrees Fahrenheit or 260 degrees Celsius).
Place the skillet or baking dish back in the oven, and broil for a few minutes, just until the cheese is bubbly, golden, and nicely melted. This step should take about 2-4 minutes, so keep a close watch to prevent burning.
Serve and Enjoy:
Carefully remove the keto crustless pizza from the oven.
Allow it to cool for a minute or two.
Slice it into wedges or squares and savor the deliciousness of your keto-friendly pizza without the traditional crust.
