Pork sausage meat
Pork sausage meat in your no-crust pizza bowl helps create a familiar pizza flavour. Turkey pepperoni is another excellent option for boosting protein.
Using courgette helps keep this pizza bowl keto, increasing how filling the dish is. This way, you can skip the crust, yet still feel full after enjoying a low-carb pizza bowl.
Aubergine is another excellent way to make low-carb pizza bowls more filling. If you do not enjoy the flavour of aubergine, you can use double the amount of courgette or add some mushrooms.
Passata gives the best consistency and flavour for the pizza sauce. Canned tomatoes could result in a bit more of a watery sauce, but you mix in some tomato paste to add depth of flavour.
By adding mozzarella, you’re adding in more protein and helping the dish feel indulgent. You can also use shredded cheddar cheese or any cheese you enjoy.

I prefer using a 12-ounce ramekin for each pizza bowl (6 inches in diameter). This size is ideal for creating individual main dishes. Smaller ramekins may not hold all the ingredients for each serving. A slightly larger ramekin will also work, though the ingredients will be more spread out.
Yes! You can easily make this recipe vegetarian. As noted above, you can add more veggies to help make the dish more filling. Or, you can use a vegetarian meat swap, like a meatless sausage.
Since the ramekins are already portioned out, turning this pizza bowl recipe into meal prep is quite simple. After the pizza bowls are cooked and out of the oven, allow them to cool completely. Then, put a Ziploc bag around each ramekin and seal, ensuring the seal is air-tight.
When you’re ready to reheat a pizza bowl, remove the bag and reheat it in the oven for 5-6 minutes. If you’re at the office, you can also microwave the ramekin for a few minutes until the cheese is melty and everything is heated thoroughly.
