Everyone’s going nuts for our Keto Hot Pockets! My Spicy Beef Hot Pockets are a big favourite on the KetoDiet blog at the moment that I got really excited about making a Pepperoni Pizza version! It’s seriously good guys and so easy to make.

If you love Fat Head dough and love pizza, this one is a must to try. You could even replace the pepperoni with chorizo or bacon and even add some spinach if you want to up your greens.

Low-carb breakfast, lunch or dinner? Which would you choose? Isn’t it great when you have a recipe that works for all three?

Serve hot or cold. I love both with a simple side salad like our Low-carb Kale Caesar or Pink Sauerkraut Side Salad.

Ingredients (makes 2 servings)

Dough:
  • 3/4 cup shredded low-moisture mozzarella (85 g/ 3 oz)
  • 1/3 cup almond flour (33 g/ 1.2 oz)
Filling:
  • 1/4 cup Marinara Sauce (60 g/ 2.1 oz)
  • 8 slices pepperoni (24 g/ 0.9 oz)
  • 1/3 cup chopped red pepper (50 g/ 1.8 oz)
  • 1/4 cup shredded low-moisture mozzarella (28 g/ 1 oz)
  • 1/4 cup cheddar or Swiss cheese (28 g/ 1 oz)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • few fresh basil leaves
  • pinch of black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 °C/ 355 °F (fan assisted), or 200 °C/ 400 °F (conventional). Make the dough by warming the mozzarella in a microwave for 60 – 80 seconds until melted. Note: If you don't have a microwave, you can also melt it in the oven. It should be just softened, not crisped up and not browned. This will take no more than 1 - 2 minutes
  2. Add the almond flour and mix to combine to make a dough.
  3. Roll between 2 sheets of greaseproof paper or one sheet and a silicone mat.
