    What is a Pizza Casserole? 

    It’s a pizza! But instead of it being made with a sugar-laden, flour-rich crust, the base comes together with a mixture of milk, cheese, and eggs.

    The end result is a golden, crisp crust that tastes as good as the real deal but is full of protein, nutrients, and healthy fats that satisfy your cravings while leaving you feeling full and energized.

      Let’s look at the main ingredients: 

      • Cream cheese
      • Eggs
      • Heavy cream 
      • Parmesan cheese
      • Mozzarella cheese
      • Tomato sauce

      Eggs and Tomato sauce are natural, nutritious ingredients. Each have their own list of health benefits. The trick to making this pizza casserole healthy is substituting typical pizza crust for a low-carb crust instead. Why? 

      Sugar is what makes food unhealthy.

      Standard pizza crust has around 5 grams of sugar per slice. 

      Combined with the glycemic index of the white flour, you’re looking at heartburn with an energy crash. (And you’ll be scouring the pantry for your next sugar snack within the hour.)

      Substitute pizza crust with a low-carb alternative, and this recipe becomes nourishment. The ingredients provide vitamins, minerals, protein, and quality, whole-food energy. 

      But what about all the cheese? Is dairy healthy?

      Here’s what we know. Dairy is full of vitamins, minerals, protein, and natural fat energy. But if everyone consumed dairy all of the time, dairy farming would become abusive and unsustainable…

      Let’s be mindful of our dairy intake. Buy dairy that comes from pasture raised cows and try to eat less.

      Pizza Casserole Tips 

      Easy Pizza Casserole Recipe. Delicious Hot Dish Pizza Casserole.

      1. Add protein

      We kept this recipe vegetarian-friendly, but you can easily add extra protein to the toppings. For instance, pepperoni, sausage, ham, and chicken all make great options. 

      2. Saute your toppings

      Before adding your toppings to the pizza, saute them in a cast-iron pan with avocado oil. Don’t forget to add a little salt. Cooking your toppings will do more to bring out their flavor.

      3. Make it a meal 

      This pizza casserole is filling enough to be served on its own but can also be paired with all of your favorite sides like Lemon Parmesan Salad  or Spiraled Cucumber Salad for extra fiber and nutrients. 

      4. Meal prep

      With 8 slices per casserole, this dish is excellent to prepare in advance for easy meals throughout the week. Transfer leftovers to an airtight container, and keep them stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. Then, just reheat individual portions in the microwave or oven, and enjoy! 

      5. Use a different sauce

      We stuck with classic pizza flavors, using low-carb pizza sauce. However, feel free to get creative with different bases like sugar-free barbecue sauce, buffalo sauce, alfredo sauce, or avocado pesto. 

      6. Leftover cream cheese? 

      Don’t toss it out! Instead, use it to make a low carb cookie skillet, chewy fudge brownies, or chocolate chip cookies for dessert.
