What Brand of Mild Italian Sausage Should I Use in my Low Carb Stuffed Peppers?

For a budget-friendly option, I recommend using Johnsonville Mild All Natural Italian Ground Sausage. It is gluten-free, dairy-free, MSG-free, and contains no artificial colors, artificial flavors, nitrates, or nitrites. It does contain a tiny amount of sugar, but not enough to be harmful or to boost the carb content. (Bacon is the same way; nearly all brands contain a touch of sugar.)

If you want an entirely sugar-free option, I recommend Pederson’s No Sugar Ground Italian Sausage.

What Brand of Sugar-Free Pizza Sauce Should I Use?

If you can find it, Rao’s Pizza Sauce is the best sauce for this recipe! It is available in many grocery stores in the U.S. 

If you can’t find it, any sugar-free pizza sauce will suffice. Check the labels and go for the lowest-carb option – as a comparison, Rao’s contains 3g net carbs per 1/4 cup.
