How to Make Low Carb Bell Pepper Pizza

My kids love pizza. My husband loves pizza. I love pizza. We love pizza! I’m so glad I got that out of my system. Are these bell pepper pizzas like traditional pizza? Well no. But they are fun to make and eat. Check out this quick video to see what I mean.

What I love about these is that you can make them with any color pepper you have available. Most importantly, it lets you use that bell pepper that’s been in your fridge for too long, where it’s gotten a little wrinkly with age because you forgot to use him up. Yes, you know what I mean… that one!

By baking the bell peppers, they still retain most of their crispy texture and hold up super well to many toppings. This is a great way to make grain-free pizzas for everyone without having to cook cauliflower pizza bases first.

Since bell peppers are keto, you can enjoy these low carb pizzas while on the ketogenic diet, and serve the exact same recipe for your family. No more cooking two meals, one for mom, and one for the kids.

This recipe is one I love to serve my family because it’s made with fresh, real ingredients and everyone LOVES pizza.

Over the years, I’ve converted a lot of family-favorite recipes into cleaner versions with real ingredients. All these amazing recipes are what I used to make the Family KickStart Program. A 30-day clean eating meal plan that the entire family can do together.

You’ll eat whole, real-food only for 30 days – but the recipes are 100% kid-approved. Which means things like clean pizza, pancakes and other delicious treats kids love. Check out the 30-day program here.

Best Toppings for Bell Pepper Pizza

Really, there’s no limit to the toppings you can use on these mini pizzas. The great thing about serving small ones, is that every family member can customize their own pizza and get exactly what they want – without any complaints from people who disagree about what goes best on pizza.

Here’s a few ideas to get you started coming up with the best pizza combinations ever.



  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Asiago Cheese


More Toppings:

  • Spinach
  • Olives
  • Chopped Broccoli
  • Crushed Pineapple
  • Diced Onions
  • Sliced Mushrooms

Sometimes I change things up and take leftover meat sauce and spread it over the bell pepper bases, then top it with a little cheese. It’s like an upside-down meaty pizza, and it helps me put leftovers to use. See? No need to throw out that small amount of leftover sauce because it’s not enough for anything else.

I should mention that leftovers make awesome lunches because the bell pepper pizza holds up great in the lunchbox. There is no need to heat up; this pizza wonder tastes great at room temperature making it the perfect cold lunch idea for the office.

    I just made these as a quick lunch for me, my husband, and my 17 year old. I substituted tomato paste with a little water added(didn’t have the pizza sauce)and did not have any meat to put on it. Mozzarella cheese sticks were easy to split and use for cheese topping. Delicious and will make these again!
