This low carb pizza soup is everything you need for a keto pizza night! This low calorie and lower fat soup is delicious on its own or with keto garlic bread! A bonus recipe is include for keto garlic bread!
So, I’m going to be completely honest and admit that I’ve been binge watching The Sopranos recently (yes, I know I’m 20 years late) and subsequently have quite a few Italian inspired dishes coming soon to the blog. Carmela, y’all, I’m a fan! All of those pasta dinners they eat have me jonesing for some keto Italian food.
What’s more Italian than pizza? Okay, well I guess there is some controversy that it actually originated in China because of something Marco Polo brought with him on an exploration. Who knows! What I do know is that I like pizza. A lot.
I also really like soup. It may be March but here in Kentucky, it snowed on the 1st and it’s been subzero temperatures. In other words, it’s still frigid and not springlike which makes me want warm food.
That brings me to this new Italian keto recipe. You should know, if you didn’t already, that when I create recipes, I am always trying to think of foods that my kids will not only like but eat without putting up a fight. Any mom knows what kind of challenge this presents!
Most kids like pizza and my kids, for the most part, will eat soup if I give them something to dunk in it. Enter: low carb pizza soup.
Personally, I’m a fan of supreme pizza. A little veggie, a little meat, and lots of cheese! That’s my favorite pie! Normally I would make a fat head pizza or [shamelessly] scrape the toppings off of delivery pizza but sometimes I a) don’t want to fool around with cooking and b) spend the money on take-out.
That’s another reason I love this [keto] pizza soup recipe so much! I used my trusty Instant Pot to make this keto friendly dinner in just 15 minutes but of course, you can use your slow cooker as well. My Instant Pot has become my new kitchen bestie!
I also love this recipe because it would be fantastic for parties, potlucks, or to share with a sick friend/neighbor! It is a fun alternative to the same ole soups you usually share.
You may also notice some yummy breadsticks in the photos! They’re kind of similar to Crazy Bread from Little Caesar’s. You can make them very easily while your soup is cooking! Keto garlic bread? Yes, please!
For the Fat Head Breadsticks you will need:
- 1 batch fat head dough
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- grated parmesan cheese
Prepare your fat head dough as outlined here. Roll it into the desired shape and thickness. Mix the minced garlic with the butter. Drizzle the butter on top of the pizza dough and use a silicone brush to cover the bread. Sprinkle a little grated parmesan cheese on top. Bake for 8-10 minutes per fat head recipe instructions. Cut into 8 “sticks”. Garnish with fresh grated parmesan.
Feel free to play around with the toppings in this soup just like you would with a regular pizza! A sausage and bacon version would be delicious too! Of course, you’ll need to recalculate macros if you deviate from the original recipe but that is really easy to do with a fitness app!
