This keto jalapeño cheese bread is reminiscent of pizza bread! Only requiring one bowl this is an easy low-carb, nut-free bread option to whip up for sandwiches, a snack, or simply a side.

Don’t like jalapeños or making this for the kiddos? Simply leave off the jalapeños or swap them for pepperoni or any other pizza style topping of your choice. This bread is also great when dunked into a bit of marinara or ranch dressing.

My goodness this is delicious!  Was a tad worried when I turned it on to the baking sheet as it really was too wet to pat with my hands as illustrated in the video.  But I worried unnecessarily -it turned out perfectly.  Fluffy, light and scrumptious!  This recipe is a real keeper - thank you!

Thank you for your lovely feedback!

Just curious if this tastes more like a fritatta or more like bread? Either is fine. Just curious. Ty

I wouldn't say it tastes like frittata but it's not quite like "regular" bread either. It's like a savoury, cheesy corn bread.

Thank u Martina. One other note... In step 5 above i think perhaps thete is a typo? It says this:
" Press the dough into a 2.5 cm/ 1 inch sphere on the baking sheet."
That's a tiny sphere!
And also i love your website and recipes... Thank you so much!  

Thank you Nico, you are right, I'll fix that. I think the numbers refer to the thickness and it's not clear from the description.

Thank you for this “nut free” bread, it was delicious! It also keeps well in an air-tight container in the fridge and is good re-heated. Yum!

This bread is beyond Delish. I made a batch less than an hour ago so I would have it ready thru the week and my family inhaled it. Batch 2 happening now.

Thank you Sandy, I'm glad you enjoyed!

why do you need the Psylium husks in this receipt??

Hi Sure, psyllium powder is a great ingredient for keto bread recipes as it makes them fluffy and also improves the texture (they hold better together). I use it in most bread recipes: Ultimate Keto Buns I hope this helps!

Hi, can I use Xanthum Gum instead of the Psyllium? and if so how much Xanthum, please. I have a serious allergy to psyllium.

Hi Leslie, I don't usually use xanthan gum but I'd guess that 1/2 teaspoon should be enough. You may need to add 1-2 tablespoons of coconut flour or flax meal just to make up for the missing psyllium.

Is there something to substitute for the yogurt? Thank you.

Sour cream or cream cheese (room temperature so it's easy to mix) will work instead of yogurt.

This looks great. Going to try tomorrow, will report back.
My question is can you freeze some of this "dough", or have you tried?
I'd like to make a double batch and use some down the road just to make it easier for time and clean up.

I wouldn't freeze the dough but I know you can freeze the baked bread. I do that with other keto bread recipes as it keeps the bread fresh. When ready to serve I just defrost it in the oven 😊

Can I substitute psyllium husk powder for the whole psyllium husks?

I think that should work, at least it is what I use in other bread recipes. I would just use less, only 1 tablespoon.

Can’t wait to try this.  Can you use fresh jalapeños instead of pickled? Thanks!

Yes you can use fresh jalapeños. The only difference is that when I use fresh jalapeños, they usually add more heat. You may need to use less if you don't like it too spicy 😊
