We love pizza, and we always have a serious pizza monkey on our back. This soup originally started as an idea to convert our favorite Subway sub, “Pizza Sub”, into a healthier low-carb keto approved meal.
We ended up with this delicious (and easy!) recipe – Instant Pot Pizza Soup. It’s one of Cody’s very favorite soups.
How To Make Keto Pizza Soup In An Instant Pot:
Here’s what you need:
- Ground beef (We use ground beef, but you can also use Italian sausage.)
- Canned tomato
- Black olives
Yes, you read that right. Pickles. Just trust us on this one. Unless you are deathly allergic to pickles – PUT. IN. THE. PICKLES.
It’s the secret ingredient that takes this low carb keto soup ten levels above any other pizza soup you’ve ever eaten. Cody is literally obsessed with it.
Even though I’ve mentioned before that he is a world class taste tester, he’s also a slightly picky eater and is very “flavor-oriented”. If he loves something, you better believe it’s amazing.
So, to make this delicious Instant Pot Pizza Soup, you start by using the sauté setting to brown the beef.
Once the beef is cooked through – add everything else:
Give it a good stir:
Seal the Instant Pot and set to Manual: High Pressure for 15 minutes. And that’s all it takes! Easy peasy.
My very favorite thing about this soup is the part where you garnish it with mozzarella cheese that get’s all melty – and then it stretches from the bowl with every spoonful you take. It really gives the illusion of eating a real pizza. Mmmmmm…..heaven.
I could, no joke, live off pizza soup. What’s easier than chopping up some stuff, throwing it in a pot and setting a timer for 15 minutes? What’s better than so little hands-on time giving such a delicious meal in return? Not much, honestly.
We also have a healthy pizza meal for breakfast, if you’re not persuaded by this soup. Go check out our Mini Pizza Crustless Quiche recipe!

As much as I love this Pizza Soup, I can’t really decide which of our low carb soup recipes I love more. I guess this is what they mean when they say you love all your children equally. Yes, my recipes are my babies. No, I’m not being weird.
