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.
If you like how this keto bread looks like, here you can find the recipe. That is my favorite keto bread that has a taste like a real artisan bread.
Ingredients for keto tomato sauce
Olive oil 1 TBS
1 small onion 30 g/1 oz
Tomato with skin removed and crushed or canned crushed tomatoes sugar free 1 cup (250 g/8.8 oz)
Sea salt ½ teaspoon - 1 teaspoon to your taste
Basil 1 TBS
Oregano 1 tsp
Garlic powdered ½ - 1 tsp
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Optional ingredients for keto ketchup

How to make low carb marinara?
In a sauce pan on the stove heat 1 TBS of olive oil and add finely chopped onion.
Stir onion until it gets nice golden brown color and start to caramelize.
When onion is caramelized, add crushed fresh tomatoes without skin or crushed canned sugar free tomato, sea salt, pepper, garlic powder, dried basil and oregano, low carb sweetener and other optional ingredients like apple vinegar and chili flakes. If you decide to add sweetener and vinegar you will get keto sauce that is more like a keto ketchup.
Continue to stir for 5 minutes. You will have to cook for 10 - 15 minutes if using fresh tomatoes.
Mix it well with immersion blender and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes.
Transfer your keto sauce in the jar.
You can use this keto tomato sauce for keto pizza, keto burger or as a sauce for your meat dishes.
Keep keto marinara sauce in the fridge. If properly stored it can survive in the fridge up to 10 days.
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!
