Easy Low Carb Pizza Sauce

Our low carb pizza is a great marinara for topping Keto flatbreads, making pizzas or just for dipping a Keto breadstick. Great to have on hand for various low carb Italian inspired dishes.

  1. In a medium sauce pan, sweat onions in olive oil over medium high heat, just until transluscent.
  2. Add garlic, stirring occasionally for 2-3 minutes.

  3. Add tomato sauce, tomato past, bouillon (or beef base), Italian seasoning, and Worcestershire sauce.

  4. Bring to a low boil.
  5. Just when the sauce begins to bubble, stir in the whiskey.
  6. Cover and reduce heat to simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Remove sauce some heat and add Confectioners Monkfruit, stirring thoroughly to combine.

  8. Add salt to taste. Roughly 1/4 tsp is right, but depending on the bouillon/beef you use, that might be too much salt. Taste first. Then add salt!

Recipe Notes

After consulting some pro pizza web sites, they seem to agree that 3 ounces of sauce is the right amount for a ten inch pizza. That means if you ate the whole pizza, you'd get about 6 Net carbs from this sauce. Not bad!

I'm going to list the Macros per ounce, though, so you can figure out how much you want. After all, you might not want it on a pizza. You might want to dip Veggies, Chicharróns, or Keto Bread sticks in it!
