What Pizza Chains Have Crustless Pizza for Low-Carb or Keto Diets? — The Keto Minimalist (1)

What is crustless pizza?

Crustless pizza takes all the delicious components of a pizza - tomato or Alfredo sauce, meats like pepperoni, Italian sausage or ham, cheese, and veggie toppings, and serves them hot and melty without a traditional pizza crust. It is an excellent way for keto eaters to satisfy a pizza craving while sticking to low-carb macros. Some pizza restaurants are embracing crustless pizza to keep their keto customers.

Crustless pizza can also be called a pizza bowl like at Marco’s Pizza or, in the case of Pizza King, “pizza on a plate.” If you look at Papa Murphy’s crustless pizza you might call it a pizza casserole, and Papa John’s calls their crustless pizza a Papa Bowl.

Ultimately crustless pizza is pizza sauce, cheese and toppings served piping hot in a bowl or on a plate, without a pizza crust.

RELATED: See my detailed review of Papa John’s new Papa Bowls with exact carb counts, ingredients and, most importantly, how they taste!

Is crustless pizza keto-friendly?

Crustless pizza is definitely keto-friendly, particularly when you order a low carb pizza sauce, choose pepperoni, sausage, ham, or other low carb meat toppings, and stick to non-starchy veggies like mushrooms, spinach, onions, and peppers. Because there is no crust, a crustless pizza can easily be high in fat, moderate in protein, and low in carbs, which is a desirable keto macro ratio.

How many carbs does crustless pizza have?

The crustless pizzas from Papa John’s, Papa Murphy’s, Pizza King, Giovanni’s, Marco’s Pizza, Lou Malnati’s, Mazzio’s Pizza, and Noble Roman’s Craft Pizza and Pub have carb counts ranging from 3 or 4 net carbs per serving, up to 18 net carbs per serving (in the case of the Italian Meats Trio Papa Bowl).

The number of carbs will vary based on your topping choices.

Most restaurants allow you to customize your crustless pizza, meaning you can choose a sauce and toppings that have lower carbs. Often Alfredo or garlic olive oil sauces have fewer carbs than a tomato-based pizza sauce. Black olives are higher in fat and lower in carbs than adding pineapple to your pizza. Make smart choices to build a crustless pizza that fits your keto macros.

Papa John’s offers 3 keto-friendly crustless pizzas (called Papa Bowls) or you can create your own custom crustless pizza.

Papa John's is the 4th largest pizza chain in the US, and they have over 5,600 stores worldwide. Incidentally, Papa John's was the first pizza company to offer online ordering way back in 2002. Papa John's is known for using fresh, high-quality ingredients in its pizzas.

Papa John's offers three varieties of crustless pizza called Papa Bowls, or you can create your own. The Papa Bowls are oven-baked and served in a cardboard pan.

Papa John's offers convenient online ordering, so it’s a snap to order and customize your keto crustless pizza.

How many carbs do Papa John's Papa Bowls (aka crustless pizza) have?

Papa Murphy’s crustless pizzas have between 12 and 18 grams of net carbs per serving. This is before any modifications (such as adding or subtracting additional toppings).

The Chicken Alfredo Papa Bowl has 12 grams of net carbs. The Italian Meats Trio Papa Bowl has 18 grams of net carbs, and the Garden Veggie Papa Bowl has 15 grams of net carbs.

Can I customize my Papa Murphy’s Papa Bowls?

Absolutely! Using Papa John's online ordering you can easily add or subtract pizza sauces, meats, cheese, or vegetable toppings for any crustless pizza.

Here are the varieties of Papa John's crustless pizza:

Chicken Alfredo Papa Bowl

Creamy alfredo and garlic Parmesan sauces, grilled chicken, spinach, mushrooms, onions, and tomatoes, baked in a bowl with three cheeses and finished with Italian seasoning.

Serves 1. Each serving has 570 calories, 31 grams fat, 62 grams protein, 12 grams net carbs.

Papa Murphy’s Take ‘n’ Bake offers 5 keto-friendly crustless pizzas or you can create your own custom crustless pizza.

Papa Murphy’s is one of the largest pizza chains in the US with approximately 1,504 stores. It is also not a traditional pizza restaurant. It is a take-and-bake store, meaning you order a pizza, it is assembled to order with fresh ingredients, you take the pizza home and bake it.

Papa Murphy’s offers five varieties of crustless pizza or you can create your own. The pizza is served in a cardboard 7x9 inch pan and you can microwave or bake the pizza when ready to serve.

Papa Murphy’s offers convenient online ordering, so it’s a snap to get your keto crustless pizza. If you don’t want to pick up, check GrubHub, DoorDash, Uber Eats or Postmates to see if they offer delivery. I’m in the Kansas City area and all of these services have Papa Murphy’s.

Papa Murphy’s regularly offers coupons (especially if you sign up for their email list) and they have a frequent-buyer program called My SLICE Rewards which allows you to earn free items, dollars off your order, or other exclusive rewards.

How many carbs does Papa Murphy’s crustless pizza have?

Papa Murphy’s crustless pizzas have between 3 and 4 grams of carbs per serving. This is before any modifications (such as adding or subtracting additional toppings).

Be aware that according to Papa Murphy’s nutrition information, each crustless pizza is considered 8 servings. Please know that “8 servings” is relative. It has the amount of toppings that would be on 8 slices of a medium pizza. Picture ripping the cheese and pepperoni off one medium slice, would that be enough to satisfy you? Probably not.

I am a medium-sized woman and I ate about ⅓ of the container along with a salad and was satisfied. 1/8th of the pan would not have been enough for me.

Can I customize my Papa Murphy’s crustless pizza?

Absolutely! Using Papa Murphy’s online ordering you can easily add or subtract pizza sauces or toppings for any crustless pizza.

If building your own crustless pizza from scratch, choose your favorite sauce (traditional red, creamy garlic, olive oil & garlic, BBQ sauce, or sweet chili sauce) or no sauce at all, and add up to five toppings. Additional toppings are $1.50 each.

What keto eaters will love is that Papa Murphy’s designates the keto-friendly toppings with a “KF” on their online ordering form. It’s easy to make wise choices without scrolling through the nutrition facts.

Here the varieties of Papa Murphy’s crustless pizza:

Cowboy Crustless Pizza

Marco’s All Meat Pizza Bowl

Marco’s Deluxe Pizza Bowl

Crustless pizza with pepperoni, Italian sausage, mushrooms, green peppers, and onions, baked with our original sauce and signature three cheeses, topped with romesan seasoning.

How many carbs does Marco’s crustless pizza have?

Marco’s crustless pizza bowls ranges from 9 to 11 grams net carbs PER SERVING, not per bowl. This is before any additional toppings you may add.

Each bowl is considered two servings so if you eat the entire bowl, double the carb count. 22 grams of carbs are a little high for one keto meal, but it is certainly much lower than eating a traditional slice (or three!) of pizza.

How much does Marco’s Specialty Pizza Bowls cost?

Each of the three crustless pizza bowls start at $7.99 (though the price may vary by location). It’s easy to customize your low carb pizza order using the online ordering system. Additional toppings are $1.25 each.

At Lou Malnati’s you can order several different sizes of crustless pizza:

  • Personal (serves 1) $9.75

Crustless pizza is on the menu at many Giovanni’s Pizza locations.

Giovanni’s Pizza was founded in Wheelersburg, Ohio, in 1964, and today there are 110 locations in Ohio, Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

Though many locations advertise crustless pizza, it does not seem to be on the menu at every location. If in doubt, call the store, check your nearest location’s online menu, or take a peek at the online ordering system.

There is not one consistent “crustless pizza” at Giovanni’s.

Giovanni’s in Deering, OH advertises a 12-inch crustless pizza using pepperoni, ham or salami for the crust. It is topped with pizza sauce, cheese & any two items of your choice. This pizza is $7.50, and additional toppings are $1.50 each.


Giovanni’s in Charleston, WV offers a 10-inch crustless pizza with pizza sauce, pepperoni, ham, sausage, bacon, and cheese. It is $6.99.

Giovanni’s in Ripley, OH has an 8-inch crustless pizza for $2.95 with each additional topping $.50.


So you may have to do a little research of your own. Check the website for the nearest Giovanni’s to see if a crustless pizza is on the menu, and details such as the size and cost.

How many carbs in Giovanni’s crustless pizza?

The total carbs are a little tricky to compute with Giovanni’s online nutrition information, AND the fact that different stores offer different sizes or types of crustless pizza.


The nutrition facts show information for a basic cheese pizza for each size, and then info for each individual topping. There is no way to subtract just the crust from the base “cheese pizza”. However, you can assume your crustless pizza will be low carb since there is no traditional crust.

You can find Giovanni’s Nutrition Facts here.

What Pizza Chains Have Crustless Pizza for Low-Carb or Keto Diets? — The Keto Minimalist (8)

Noble Roman’s Craft Pizza and Pub sells a deep-dish crustless pizza.

Noble Roman's Craft Pizza and Pub has 10 locations in Indiana and they offer an individual sized crustless pizza. It has a caramelized extra cheese "crust" with red sauce and your choice of toppings. Price starts at $5.99 plus $.50 for each additional topping.

The carbs in a Noble Roman’s crustless pizza are a little tricky to compute. Their crustless pizza is 8 grams carbs, 20 grams protein, and 24 grams fat. But their nutrition facts do not list macros for individual pizza toppings like pepperoni, mushrooms, and olives - only the calorie counts.

However, as a keto eater, likely you know the toppings that are low in carbs like cheese, pepperoni, black olives, and you can avoid choosing higher carb toppings like pineapple or potatoes.

You can find Noble Roman’s nutritional information here.

Pizza King has a Crustless Pizzacalled “Pizza on a Plate.”

Pizza King is a restaurant chain based in Indiana with 6 locations. They offer a crustless pizza they call “pizza on a plate.”

It is exactly how it sounds… pizza toppings covered with sauce and served on a hot plate. They recommend ordering the 10 inch size.


Since they don’t have a standard crustless pizza, you would calculate carbs and macros based on the toppings you choose.

Looking at their nutritional information, a 10 inch Pizza King crustless pizza with pepperoni, black olives, sausage, cheese and mushrooms would have 14 grams carbs, 63 grams protein, and 75 grams fat. In my opinion that would probably equal 2 servings (based on calculations from other restaurants), so you could cut the carbs in half if eating only half the pizza.


You can find Pizza King’s Nutrition Guide here.

How to find crustless pizza in your area?

I checked as many US pizza chain restaurants as I could find, but don't rule out local mom and pop pizzerias! Google "keto pizza near me" and do your own research. I did this and 5 results popped up.

Then check out the restaurant’s website and nutritional information. I love researching and deciding what I'm going to order IN ADVANCE. You might find some great new pizza places and, in this era of Covid, it’s important to support local businesses.

Can I order a crustless pizza if it’s not on the menu, and how?

If you don’t see crustless pizza on a restaurant’s menu, and they don’t have a keto alterative like low-carb cauliflower crust, you can always ask if the kitchen will prepare you a crustless pizza. Some people I know have had success asking for and receiving a crustless pizza.

Just be super polite, and clear in what you are asking. Sometimes wait staff are not familiar with a keto diet and, to them, the idea of a crustless pizza sounds silly or weird. If they immediately say “no,” you can very politely ask if they will check with the kitchen manager.

I have a friend who is a kitchen manager at a local pizza restaurant. He told me no one has ever asked him to make a crustless pizza, but that he would do so on request.

If the restaurant cannot accommodate you, no worries. Just eat the toppings off of a pizza and supplement with a salad, or enjoy a different low carb item from the menu.

What pizza chains DO NOT offer crustless pizza?

I checked the menus of 84 US pizza chain restaurants when I researched this post in December 2020. Below is a list of the restaurants who do not have crustless pizza on the menu. Some do offer a cauliflower or keto pizza crust, but this blog post is specifically talking about crustless pizza.

You can also ask if a restaurant can serve you a crustless pizza even if you don’t see it on the menu. You may be pleasantly surprised that your request can be accommodated.

If you discover a restaurant serving crustless pizza, let me know in the comments so I can keep this list up-to-date.
