Keto Pizza Snacks

I LOVE PIZZA. There, I said it. Truth be told, pizza was one of the food items that I thought I was really going to miss when I went low carb/keto. But honestly….there’s no loss felt here with these Keto Pizza Snacks.

The real flavor for me with pizza is having the melted cheese with the toppings. So when I simply melted the provolone with the pepperoni I was able to create a quick bite in minutes.

NO FATHEAD DOUGH

When I started this journey to keto and low carb I really felt great about having Fathead dough as an option to fill my pizza cravings.

Fathead dough really is like a miracle dough that comes together with just a few staple fridge ingredients. Microwave some cheese, add an egg and some almond flour and MAGIC happens.

We use fathead dough for so many low carb recipes and it has become a staple of our monthly meals. However, it’s not always easy to whip up a batch of this dough when you want pizza

These Keto Pizza Snacks are a great substitution when you just don’t have it in you to make the dough from scratch.

The Cheese

Simple deli sliced pre-packaged provolone slices are readily available at most supermarkets. Sometimes I buy slices in bulk from the deli counter, too.

Thin to medium thickness is what you want for these Keto Pizza Snacks. A thinner sliced provolone will give you a crispier snack, while a slightly thicker slice will result in a chewier bite.

Rimmed Baking Sheet

Can you just trust me on this? Pepperoni and provolone cheese tend to have more oils. When baked the Keto Pizza Snacks will “weep”. While this is totally expected it does not mean your oven needs to be a mess.

Catch the drippings on the baking sheet. Then when you pull the sheet from the oven you can gently blot all the oils up with a paper towel.

By soaking up the oils you also give the Keto Pizza snacks to get a little crispier.

Toppings

I used pepperoni in this recipe, but you could easily top your Keto Pizza Snacks with many things…

  • sliced black olives
  • thin sliced red onion
  • bell pepper
  • spicy sausage

Bake Time

Every oven is a little different, but we start this recipe at 350*. We all know that I have the smallest oven known to exist, but it’s a sturdy little sucker.

I make fun of my teenie oven all the time, but that work horse can really turn out some masterpiece meals. With that said, my oven runs a little off. When the dial says 350* it usually means 375*.

I also have to turn the baking sheets at least once in my tiny hotbox to make sure the Keto Pizza Snack bakes evenly. Then at the end of bake time I may even turn to broil for 30 seconds…just for fun.

The Chew

Once your Keto Pizza Snacks are out of the oven, blotted and cooled you can enjoy or store for later.

These take on a crispy edge and a chewy center several minutes out of the oven. I tend to like the chewiness of each bite. But the edges have a nice crunch.

Storage

If, (and that’s a big IF), you have any Keto Pizza Snacks left wrap up the leftovers up in a ziploc bag. I may also wrap them in a paper towel first, then put in a ziploc to store in the fridge.

These go fast, so it’s a little bit of a waste, but just in case 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

My secret to lasting weight loss

Maintaining my weight loss, and quite frankly staying healthy, has always been the main driver for this website. Making quick bites like these mini Keto Pizza Snacks is really my trick.

Sorry, it’s that simple for me…I meal prep and almost always cook at home.
