Paleo Pizza

We have a pizza night once a week at our house. Usually Friday nights but occasionally Saturdays work too, depends on life, really. Since I went paleo our pizza night has been hard to live through. Most things can be paleo-ized but some just seem to defy it, especially when they are covered in cheese sitting on a crispy gluten slab. Oh PIZZA. But now that Paleo Pizza in a pot is here life is a whole lot easier on pizza night.

Paleo Pizza in a Pot

A while ago I hit on this Pizza in a Pot idea and I’ve been building on it every week. Basically, I cook up a bunch of paleo approved sausage to make myself feel better about NOT having cheesy gluten goodness. Then I add all the veg I’d put on a pizza plus chopped eggplant. I cook it up all together with some tomato puree or sauce or whatever I have on hand. I am telling you a nice big bowl of steaming Pizza in a Pot can help you feel so much better when everyone else is macking down on pizza. It’s NOT perfect nor is it pizza but it is a LOT of the flavor of pizza and sometimes that’s what you need.

Paleo Pizza In a Pot--everything for a pizza in a pot ready to enjoy! Low Carb and SO tasty!

Hope this helps if you’ve Gone Paleo and you NEED pizza. It has helped tremendously. I make it differently EVERY week too, Some weeks more meaty others more veg depends on what we have and what I need to use up. So take it, twist it up and make it yours. If you need a little more Paleo Inspiration try my Ground Beef Jerky, Sushi Bites, or my Paleo Trail Mix, so easy to make and they help keep you on the straight and narrow.

Yield: 2 servings

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • 1/2 pound of bulk Italian Sausage, make your own from pork sausage or buy the best you can get
  • 1 whole eggplant
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 pound of zucchini
  • 1 green pepper
  • 8 white, or cremini mushrooms
  • 2 cups tomato puree or sauce or crushed, whatever you have-nothing added JUST tomatoes
  • pinch oregano
  • pinch sage
  • salt, to taste, not much depending on your sauce and sausage
  • good dash of pepper
  • 10 pieces pepperoni, paleo approved


  1. brown the sausage in a nice deep pot--no need to spatter the top of you stove!
  2. while it's cooking wash the eggplant and cut it in to bite size chunks
  3. fill a bowl with water and add a TBSP of salt swish to combine and add the eggplant
  4. let it rest in the salty water for 15 minutes
  5. when the sausage is done cooking drain off the grease
  6. reduce heat to low to avoid burning it
  7. start washing, chopping and adding the vegetables to the pot
  8. stir the mix every couple minutes to keep it from sticking too much
  9. once all the veggies are added add the tomatoes and the seasonings--hold off on the salt until later though!
  10. drain the eggplant, rinse it well and add it too
  11. add a bit of water if there doesn't seem to be enough liquid-don't worry the veggies will release liquid and a quarter to half cup of water will not matter
  12. cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes-roughly the time it takes to roll out a pizza, top it and bake it
  13. once it has simmered taste it and add salt and pepper as needed
  14. stir in the pepperoni and serve piping hot
