Step 1: Getting Ready

Step 2: Creating Layers
Grease a baking dish (9×13 inches) with cooking spray.
Arrange the thin ham slices at the bottom, letting them overlap a bit.
Pour half of the beef and marinara mix over the ham.
Sprinkle a good amount of mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
Add another layer of ham or your preferred protein (turkey, salami, or pepperoni).
Layer more beef, marinara sauce, cheese, and your chosen toppings.
Step 3: Baking Time
Pop it in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.
Move it to the top rack and turn on the broiler for 1 to 3 minutes until the cheese gets a nice golden touch. Keep a close eye to avoid burning.
Step 4: Final Touches
Make it look even fancier by sprinkling some fresh parsley on top.
Get creative with your toppings and enjoy your unique and tasty low-carb pizza casserole! It’s like a pizza party in a casserole dish. 🍕😊
