These keto meatballs are just like meatballs I love from pizzerias. They are cheesy, mixed with sausage and a flavor packed, robust sauce. They can be made numerous ways with a great, healthy recipe every time!
In a mixing bowl combine all ingredients for the meatballs. Mix well and set aside. If you'd like to add pork rinds or almond flour for more bulking, measurment suggestions are below in notes.
In a frying pan on high heat add a little oil and sear each meatball or at least 2 sides. Remove when done lower heat to medium.
Add in tomato paste and cook it about 10 seconds before add in beef broth. Right after the beef broth add in pizza sauce. Mix everything togther.
In a baking pan or cast iron such as in photos combine the sauce and the seared meatballs. Place in preheated oven uncovered for 20 minutes. Bake until cheese has browned. If meatballs are normal size they will be cooked through at the 20 minute mark.
Helpful Recipe Tips
Size of meatballs, meatballs about the a quarter in circumference are perfect. They won't cook all the way through when searing and they'll be done in 20 minutes while baking. When you go thicker you will have to increase oven time.
For crockpot, double recipe for normal sized crockpot and instructions are in passage. Not much different but there are slight changes.
Using pork rinds or almond flour, for more bulking in the meatball adding 1/4 cup of either will work fine. It isn't needed but personal preference I'd understand why someone would want to add them.
