Low Carb Crustless Pizza Casserole

When I make pizza for Beckett, I normally eat the toppings off of 1 or 2 slices to keep away from the carbs, but I always feel bad throwing out the bread out.  For lunch today I made pizza for him, but in a small, separate glass pie plate I layered some toppings to make a low carb, keto friendly casserole.  

Depending on the size of the casserole dish, you can use whatever amounts of toppings desired.  
I made Beckett's pizza then what I had left I layered in my dish. 

What I used: 
Rao's pizza sauce (I used one small jar but if you're doing a larger casserole you'll need 2)  
I tube of Jimmy Dean Sausage  
Sliced Black Olives 
Baby Bella Mushrooms 
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese 
1 Tbsp. Oregano 
1 Tsp. Garlic Powder 

~Brown sausage in a pan, rinse, drain and set aside. 
~Saute mushrooms along with oregano and garlic powder and set aside.  

Mix together sausage and pizza sauce and layer the bottom of a casserole dish.  Sprinkle a layer of mozzarella, then a layer of mushrooms, repeat another layer of cheese, then top off with black olives and pepperoni.  

Bake at 400 for about 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and starts to brown.  

This dish can easily be changed up so many ways.  There are so many options.  Next time I may use fresh mozzarella slices or add in some sauteed onion and chopped bell pepper.  

The sky is the limit with this easy low carb option.  Make it your own!
