We eat a lot of these low-carb Pizza Stuffed Peppers. They’re a definite go-to when I’m stressed and don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. It’s a comfort food and it’s easy to make.

I originally was worried that I wouldn’t ever eat pizza again when I started my keto diet, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. There are so many ways to still enjoy pizza, from this Fathead Pizza Dough to this cauliflower pizza crust, or just loading up peppers and eggplant with pizza toppings, like we’ve done here.

You can choose what toppings you like for your keto stuffed peppers. Keep it super low carb with pepperoni, ground sausage, and mushrooms. Or add a little bit of onion and black olives, if you like.

What Peppers to Use

I use Ramiro peppers, also called sweet pointed peppers, for this recipe. They are large – around 6 to 8 inches long and 3 inches wide. They can easily be cut open and lay flat so you can fill them with toppings.

If you can’t find these type of peppers, or any that resemble them, you can use poblano peppers, or regular bell peppers as a substitute.

How to Make Low-Carb Pizza Sauce

We have a whole post with recipe for making low-carb pizza sauce at home. A regular store-bought pizza sauce will have added sugar and additives so it’s not keto friendly. That’s why we make our own. You can find low- or no-added sugar pizza sauce occasionally. If you have one that you like, stick with that, or go to our recipe to make your own.

The key to a keto pizza sauce is to use tomato puree + water to thin it, or tomato sauce (passata), that has no added sugar. Mix in some oregano, Italian seasoning, a little bit of salt and pepper and garlic powder. Super easy.
