Keto Roast Beef Cheese Crust Pizza


Jump to Recipe

Prior to being low-carb/keto, we used to often visit a local pizza parlor that made the best roast beef calzones!  For those that never heard of a calzone, it’s basically an inside-out pizza where the crust encloses the marinara sauce, cheese and toppings.  We know, roast beef isn’t the first thing you think of when you hear marinara sauce, but the pairing is really good!  So good in fact that we took this idea to make today’s recipe, Keto Roast Beef Cheese Crust Pizza!  Instead of using a low-carb/keto pizza dough, we opted to use our cheese crisp base to simplify the recipe and give it an added texture.  The combination of everything came out really good and will guarantee to satisfy those pizza cravings in no time!

This dish is keto approved at ~0.4g carbs per mini pizza.   These mini pizza tastes like a traditional cheese pizza minus the bread and of course, the added flavors of roast beef.  We used store bought marinara sauce for the sake of simplicity, but you can make you own low-carb/keto marinara sauce to bring the carb count down if you wish!
