Ah, pizza. It’s one of the things that causes many people new to a low carb lifestyle to partake in much wailing and gnashing of teeth. And while there are lots of recipes for alternatives ricocheting around the inter-webs these days, you can most easily scratch that pizza itch by getting your mitts on some Fox Hill Kitchens Bunz. (Coupon: carrie for 15% discount!)
Wait. WHAT?? You mean to tell me there’s no magical pizza recipe going down in this post??
Nope. No magical pizza recipe.
Because one of my big, fat life goals is to help you eat the most delicious food so you can happily stay on the low carb / keto train for as long as you want or need. And that does not require fancy or complicated recipes. And while creating new recipes is one of my favorite things in the world to do, this blog isn’t about me. It’s about you.
And there are times when you need food that is simply assembled; because you don’t have the time, or the energy, or the equipment, or the space, or the mental or emotional capacity to break out all. the. things. just to get dinner on the table. AND THAT’S ABSOLUTELY FINE! And yes, I also need food like that on the regular.
So this post is giving you permission to have it all. Have really delicious food that doesn’t require a culinary arts degree, half your evening, or require a fully-stocked pantry and the need to fearfully ask the internet for a tried-and-true recipe because lord knows there are far, far, far more keto recipe fails out there than ones that actually work and taste great.
And here’s the real kicker: this post also gives you permission to revel entirely and excitedly in your pizza success despite the fact that you did not spend a ton of time trying to wrestle one of 3.12 gazillion different versions of Fat Head Dough into submission.
Easy Peasy Pizza #1: marinara + shredded mozzarella + pepperoni + dried oregano
Easy Peasy Pizza #2: marinara + shredded cheddar + ground sausage + sliced mushrooms + dried sage (saute the ground sausage in a skillet prior to using as a topping – cook it but don’t brown it)
Easy Peasy Pizza #3: pesto + chopped feta + sliced cherry tomatoes + fresh basil (I used pre-made pesto that I bought at Costco – always check the ingredients!)
Side note: I love Fox Hill Kitchens products. I mean *really* love them. I use them all the time and anywhere I would have used regular buns and bagels. And if you know me at all then you know that I do not share or promote anything that I do not totally believe in and use myself.

What You Need
- Large Fox Hill Kitchens Bunz (Coupon: carrie for 15% discount!)
- Your favorite pizza toppings
What You Do
- Allow your Fox Hill Kitchens Bunz (Coupon: carrie for 15% discount!) to defrost, and while that’s happening pre-heat the oven to 450F.
- Slice your Bunz in half and lightly toast them. The goal is not to give them color, but just to dry them a little to make them sturdier.
- Place your Bunz cut side up on a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil or parchment paper. (Yay! Easy clean-up!)
- Spread your sauce evenly on your Bunz with the back of a spoon.
- Spread your cheese on your Bunz.
- Add your toppings.
- Bake in the center of the oven for 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted, golden and bubbling.
- Sit on the couch with your plate of pizza and revel in the fact that you have pizza with practically zero carbs (depending on toppings) that tastes like pizza and feels like pizza but was faster and cheaper than pretty much any other alternative.
- High-five your cat. Or dog. Or fellow human(s).
Top Recipe Tips
- Fox Hill Kitchens Bunz (Coupon: carrie for 15% discount!) – buy 6 of any combination for free shipping on top of your discount (!)
- Freeze your Bunz and Bagelz as soon as they arrive.
- Allowing your Bunz and Bagelz to defrost naturally gives you the best results.
- Don’t use pre-shredded cheese – they have carby fillers in them. Buy block cheeses and shred yourself using a food processor (Cuisinart is my recommendation) or, like I do, use a simple box grater. In the case of feta just slice or cube with a sharp knife.
