Serves: 10 keto pizza bites

Ingredients:

Crust

  • 1 cup, almond flour, 112g (see my tips on why you may want to start with less flour, say 85g and add more if needed)
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum (optional)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp thyme
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp chili pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1/16 tsp salt
  • 1/16 tsp pepper 
  • 1 egg, room temperature, whisked
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded mozzarella, 140g/5oz (see my tips on choosing your mozzarella)

Fillings

  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella, 30g
  • 2-3 tbsp finely chopped green peppers
  • 2 tbsp chopped green olives (optional)

Toppings

  • 2 tbsp garlic butter, melted, 30g
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • Pizza sauce for dipping

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375*F. 
  2. In a bowl, whisk together your crust dry ingredients including; almond flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, spices, salt and pepper. 
  3. In another microwavable bowl, add your shredded mozzarella and microwave for 30s at a time, stirring in-between until fully melted. (It takes me about 1min total but I have quite a terrible microwave, lol so yours may take less time).
  4. Once the mozzarella is well-melted, add your whisked egg and mix (it’s okay if these two don’t fully combine).
  5. Add your dry ingredients and mix again until a thick dough starts to form.
  6. Use your hands as the dough comes together to continue mixing the mozzarella with the rest of the ingredients. You’ll need to knead the dough for a couple minutes to get it to blend together. If you are still having difficulty blending the mozzarella with the other ingredients, see my tips above to help you out!
  7. Once you can form a pretty even dough ball, transfer it to two large greased pieces of parchment or wax paper.
  8. Roll the dough out to be thin but still sturdy enough that you can easily bend and fold it without breaking it (see photo).
  9. Use a glass, greased with oil and with a large opening to cut circles out of the dough. 
  10. Place a small amount of your pizza fillings into the center of each circle, then pinch the dough into a ball and do your best to seal all the edges. Repeat this process for the rest of the dough, re-rolling the scraps when needed.
  11. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the pinched side of each finished pizza bite facing down. 
  12. Brush the keto pizza bites with half of the melted garlic butter and sprinkle 1 tbsp of the parmesan cheese. 
  13. Bake for ~25-29min or until the crust becomes golden brown in colour.
  14. Brush the baked pizza bites with the rest of the garlic butter and sprinkle the other tablespoon of parmesan cheese.
  15. Serve warm with a side of marinara, ranch or pizza sauce for dipping. Enjoy your Low Carb Keto Pizza Bites!
