This crowd-pleasing, giant cheeseburger sub is made with the easiest keto-friendly dough and filled with cheeseburger meat, pickles and cheese. It's a delicious meal perfect for brunch, party or casual dinner!

I used my favourite simplified Fat Head dough. All you need for the dough is two ingredients — that's it. There are no eggs and no cream cheese, just shredded mozzarella and almond flour.

The dough is so versatile! Apart from savoury fillings, you can use it for sweet recipes such as my Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake Breakfast Pockets and "Apple" Pie Keto Hot Pockets.

If you can't eat nuts, I created a nut-free alternative using flax meal. The only drawback about this simplified Fat Head dough is that it can get soggy on the bottom — make sure to use low moisture ingredients to prevent excess juices and soggy dough.

  4. Preheat the oven to 180 °C/ 360 °F (fan assisted). Place the shredded mozzarella in a bowl and microwave for about 2 minutes, checking once or twice, or melt on the stove over a low heat. Mix in the almond flour. Keto Cheeseburger Stromboli
  5. Using a fork, combine well until you create dough. Keto Cheeseburger Stromboli
  6. Roll the dough out between 2 sheets of parchment paper until large enough to wrap around the filling (I used a silicon mat and silicon rolling pin). Keto Cheeseburger Stromboli
  7. Using a slotted spoon, add the cooked cheeseburger meat mixture in the centre of the dough (do not add any excess juices from the skillet). Add sliced pickles. Keto Cheeseburger Stromboli
  8. Top with cheese slices. Using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife, make cuts about 1 inch (2 cm) apart on the long sides of the dough. Do not cut all the way to the filling but just within about 1/2 inch (1 cm) of the filling.
  9. Fold all of the strips of dough diagonally over filling, alternating from side to side, and stretching the dough as needed. Keto Cheeseburger Stromboli
  10. Place in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Keto Cheeseburger Stromboli
  11. Remove from the oven and let it cool down for 5 minutes before slicing. Eat immediately while still warm. To store, refrigerate for up to 4 days. Reheat before serving. Keto Cheeseburger Stromboli

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

I am just starting into the Keto diet. 10 days today. No more pain in my arthritic knees (sports) and ankles. I have been looking for interesting recipes, to stimulate my palate. I have no appetite? I find this recipe very tasty, and the aroma appetite stimulating. I am looking forward to trying your other recipes. Thank you

Thank you for sharing this Maggie! Keto on!

I liked this recipe however I struggled to get 8 servings out of it! Actually the dough recipe once rolled out as thin as I could get it was big enough to make about 3 servings. Filled with just under 1/2 lb of beef and I mean I rolled it THIN... am I missing something. Did I do the dough incorrectly? Because this unfortunately more than doubles the carb count per serving. And makes things all out of whack now as far as percentages.

The dough should roll out quite thin but it does depend on the mozzarella. Make sure to get the "part-skim" shredded mozzarella. Other mozzarella types would make the dough too sticky and hard to roll out.
It's 8 servings as appetizers or 4 "regular" meal. It's based on this recipe: Keto Morning Hot Pockets
The original recipe uses half of the ingredients (dough) to make 2 "regular" servings. I hope this helps!

Can leftovers be frozen for a later date?

Reply

Yes, you can freeze any leftovers but it's better if you slice the stromboli before freezing.

Thank you for this brilliant recipe- the dough is very versatile. It fulfilled my bread/ carb cravings. Reminds me of the Middle eastern bread- fatayer.

Thank you Sid!

This was AMAZING! I used pickled jalapenos instead of gherkins and mixed in some pork mince because I didn't have enough beef. Will be making it again!

Thank you Susanne!

Looks delicious. What oven temp if not fan assisted?

Reply

For conventional oven the general rule is to add 20 C, so instead of 180 C, you will need to bake it at 200 C (400F). I hope this helps!

Hi! How much coconut flour could be used instead of almond flour?

Reply

If you want to use coconut flour instead, use 6 tablespoons (48 g/1.7 oz) coconut flour and add 2 heaping tablespoons (57 g/2 oz)
cream cheese to the mozzarella (otherwise the dough will be too dry). I hope this helps!

Ooooh yummy! Cannot wait to try this!

Would something like this work to make a "normal" stromboli? Could you mix in meat + some low carb pizza sauce + mozzarella to do that? This looks really tasty (though I'll leave out the pickles - never got a taste for those 😊 ).

Reply

Absolutely! The filling will work for any stromboli dough although you may need to fine-tune the amount to fit inside the dough 😊
