Keto Hamburger Pizza

Jul 22, 2019 | Food, Main Course

Thomas and I have been on an “almost Keto diet” for about 2 months now.  We are following it but allowing ourselves a cheat day here and there.  We LOVE pizza and will probably be ordering some tonight because we have friends coming over for dinner but back to our diet….I created this recipe last week to help with our pizza cravings and it turned out pretty good.  So…I thought I’d share with you.  

If you love hamburgers, sauce, pepperoni, and cheese, you will LOVE this Keto Hamburger Pizza!  I didn’t miss the bread at all!  

The Keto Diet is a low carb high fat diet.  “Ketogenic” is a term for a low-carb diet (like the Atkins diet). The idea is for you to get more calories from protein and fat and less from carbohydrates. You cut back most on the carbs that are easy to digest, like sugar, soda, pastries, and white bread.  In my research, I found that ordering and buying all organic can help you lose weight faster.  We have slowly incorporated organic foods into our diet but this pizza does not have any organic ingredients.  This doesn’t mean you can’t substitute though.  
When you eat less than 50 grams of carbs a day, your body eventually runs out of fuel (blood sugar) it can use quickly. This typically takes 3 to 4 days. Then you’ll start to break down protein and fat for energy, which can make you lose weight. This is called ketosis. It’s important to note that the ketogenic diet is a short term diet that’s focussed on weight loss rather than the pursuit of health benefits. 


1/2 pound of ground meat
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon parsley – I used dried
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup tomato sauce (without sugar)
4 slivers of sun dried tomatoes
4 large slices of Calabrese Salami
4 large slices of Genoa Salami
6 slices of Genoa Salami (cracker cut)
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese (shredded)
1/4 cup shaved parmesan sheet
1 cup pearl mozzarella cheese balls
1 tablespoon of grated parmesan and Romano cheese


  1. Use a cast iron skillet and cover bottom with olive oil.  
  2. Spread the 1/2 pound hamburger meat flat to the edges of the pan.  
  3. Sprinkle seasonings on top and cook on medium heat until brown.
  4. Move to the oven and cook under the broiler until crispy.  Mine took about 15 minutes but it all depends on your oven.
  5. Take out and layer meat with sauce, dried tomatoes, and salami’s.  Cook until crispy or to what you like.
  6. Take out and layer with your cheeses and cook under the broiler until crispy or to what you like.  

​Cut into slices just like you would do a regular pizza.  You could also add other ingredients such as onions, peppers, mushrooms, etc.  I used what we had in the refrigerator but will try the supreme version next time.  I used a regular size pan but the hamburger meat shrunk up a bit.  This recipe made 4 medium sized slices.

Hope you enjoyed my Keto Hamburger Pizza. If you are looking to cut bread out of your diet, this might be for you.  Thomas loved it.  When I asked on a scale of 1 to 10, what he rated it and he said an 8 only because he would like more pepperoni and cheese!  This guy loves cheese!  LOL!
