KETO PIZZA BITES

Let’s get this straight…

Pizza Bites are the epitome of party food, alright.

Every Christmas Eve my family eats mini appetizers for dinner and pizza bites are always included.

They’re cheesy, bready (I’m making this a word) and super addicting.

They aren’t very complicated…they’re just crust and toppings so I thought, why couldn’t you make a keto version?

And lo and behold YOU CAN!

These keto pizza bites are not complicated to make. The most work is putting the little pieces of dough in the muffin cups.

If you want to be the star at your next Christmas party or family get-together..bring these and shock everyone when you tell them there is no white flour involved in this recipe!

Totally keto-friendly and low-carb.

And totally delicious.

Some Ingredients I’d Like To Highlight:

  • Vital Wheat Gluten – If you have questions about why I include this ingredient, I wrote an entire article on what it is and why I use Vital Wheat Gluten on my keto diet! I also included where to buy it, how many carbs it contains..and how to use it in baking. If you choose to leave this out, that’s okay too!
  • Almond Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.

Tools I use:

  • Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!
  • Mini Muffin Tin
  • My Camera – Because I always get asked! I use my phone and my camera interchangeably for photos but I absolutely love the quality of my camera if I have more time to take photos.

Can I freeze Keto Pizza Bites?

  • Yes! You absolutely can. Just be sure to freeze them between layers of parchment paper in an air-tight container.
  • You can re-heat them in the microwave or for best results in the oven on a cookie sheet at 400*F

Notes

  • When making circles to press into the muffin tins.. don’t worry about them being perfect! Just make sure you press the dough in evenly and there aren’t any large holes.
  • I prefer to keep the dough on the thinner side to avoid too much crust.
  • You can use whichever pizza sauce and toppings you prefer.
