These little pizza cups are a great low-carb snack! It’s one of those keto recipes you will want to make over and over again. They’re like your favorite pizza topping made into bite-sized snacks.

They can be customized by using any keto-friendly toppings you wish. We simply used homemade Low-Carb Marinara Sauce, fresh basil and olives. Make sure there are no added sugars if you use store bought.

You can even use some cooked spinach, mushrooms or bacon pieces. You can also swap the marinara with any homemade pesto. The options are endless!

Just be sure to buy sandwich style pepperoni so they’ll be large enough to make little cups. Enjoy!

Can the pepperoni pizza cups be frozen? If so, how long will they keep?  Thanks for proving such great recipes.

Yes they can! I'd keep them in freezer bags fr up to 3 months. When ready to serve, reheat in the oven.

Delicious. Simple to make. Impressive.

Delicious! I used Rao sauce bec I was short on time. It was a big winner at our Super Bowl party.  Thank you for this recipe 😊

Thank you Glenda!

I made this and it was fabulous.  I am super picky about pizza sauce so I tried it with Bruschetta instead (that’s what I use for my home made pizzas) and it was perfect.  

Thank you Agnes! You need to try my homemade marinara, it is really really good! 😊

Hello! This looks delicious! How many bites per serving?

I'd say 3-5 as a snack/appetiser? 😊

delicious bites and so easy to make. Thank you!

Real little pizza bites! I love basil and olives, so this combination is just heaven.
I suppose the only trick with these is to either make your marinara sauce yourself or read the labels very carefully.

It is indeed! I think there may be some sugar-free options but I just make my own - it only takes 5 minutes 😊
