Low-Carb Keto Fathead Pizza Pockets
Craving the flavors of pizza but want to keep it low-carb? Say hello to our simple and easy Keto Fathead Pizza Pockets!
First, get 1 ½ cups of shredded mozzarella cheese and 2 oz of cream cheese in a bowl.
Pop it in the microwave until it’s all melty and mixed up. Next, toss in ¾ cup of almond flour, a touch of Italian seasoning, and a pinch of salt.
Stir all in, add a giant egg, and knead everything into a smooth dough. Heat your oven to 375°F (190°C), divide that dough into pieces, and roll each piece into a circle about ¼-inch thick.
Now comes the fun part! Spread about ½ cup of low-carb marinara sauce on one side, then sprinkle on ¾ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese and your favorite keto-friendly pizza toppings – pepperoni, sausage, you name it!
Fold the dough over the fillings, press and seal the edges, and onto a baking sheet they go. Pop them in the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden and melty.
Let them cool down just a bit before digging in. These pockets are perfect for a quick snack or a satisfying low-carb meal that brings that pizza goodness to your plate, minus the carbs!
