Easy keto tomato sauce – low carb marinara sauce is great for your keto pizza, keto burger or meat and veggies.

My family like this easy keto tomato sauce. We are using it for fathead pizza and for keto burgers. Also I put this sauce on a meat cooked in a meat broth and serve with cauliflower mash. My favorite meal! 😊

Keto burgers and keto pizza are very often on our menu so I prepare this keto marinara sauce very often. My children like the flavor of basil and oregano, so my toddler daughter eats this sauce as a spread on a keto bread!

Last week I was preparing a burger for myself, spreading the sauce on my keto bun when my daughter just grabbed my keto bread with tomato sauce on it and ate the whole slice. It was funny for me so I had to try and I was surprised how good it was. Keto pizza sauce on a slice of keto bread! I won’t share her photo here because she looked like a little pig with face covered in tomato sauce.

Perfect keto pizza and burger sauce

My children like to eat fathead pizza so I have to have this sauce in my fridge all the time. I like to add this sauce when I prepare vegetable dishes to make the flavor stronger. It goes great as a dip with mozzarella sticks, keto zucchini fries or with any keto fritters we make.

If you decide to try this sauce in plane version, hot version or as a keto ketchup I am sure you will like it! When you prepare it, let me know how you like it and share in your favorite social networks groups!

Enjoy!
