If you aren’t drooling after looking over these homemade keto pizza rolls I will be shocked. You don’t even have to eat low carb to enjoy all the flavors and textures they have to offer. Let’s break down the ingredients really quick:
Mozzarella: The star of the show is the mozzarella cheese. Use slices of good quality mozzarella for the best results and flavor.
Pepperoni: I’m pretty much starving thinking about biting into the cooked pepperoni. Yummy! You only need 12 slices, and you’ll be in food heaven.
Marinara Sauce: The marinara sauce is completely optional. We love to dip our pizza rolls into the warm marinara sauce.
Step one: Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees. Then, line a cookie sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper.
Note: Find pre cut parchment paper that fits the sheet pan. This has been the biggest timesaver for me. It only costs a few cents, but makes cleanup a snap! 😍
Step two: Lay the sliced cheese on the sheet pan liner, and pop it in the oven for six minutes. No, these don’t take a lot of time – so be sure to watch your kitchen timer! See if the cheese has turned brown around the edges and remove them from the oven.
Step three: While your Pizza Rolls are cooling, sprinkle Italian seasoning and add pepperoni to the cheese slices. Roll them up and
Step four: Let them cool to a comfortable temperature to eat, and then serve with your favorite keto-friendly dipping sauce.
🍲 Tips and Tricks
Always add a liner to your cookie sheet. Whether you use a baking mat or parchment paper, this will keep your Keto rolls and makes cleanup a breeze!
Trust your oven when it comes to perfect cooking. Some home cooks know their ovens cook a little faster or a little slower. What you really want to look for is the cheese melting and then starting to turn a little brown, this is your sign that they are ready to come out of the oven.
Making these for a party or friends coming over? Keep in mind that most will eat between two to four pizza rolls. Count the number of people who are coming and then make as many batches that you need for the amount of people you are expecting.
🍴 Additions and Substitutions
- The first thing I would want to do on this recipe to change it up a bit is to drizzle the olive oil/herb spread that is used in the Portobello Mushroom Pizza recipe. That is really going to jazz up the flavor quite a bit for minimal effort.
- Another idea is to put ham on top of it instead of pepperoni.
- Try adding a few leaves of spinach instead of the meat all together. This is a great way to make this vegetarian.
- Grab a jar of Keto friendly sauce and spread a ½ tsp sauce on the cheese slice.
🍽️ Meal Prep Tips
We believe that there are always ways to meal prep. Even saving just a few minutes will add up! For this recipe, it is all about the preparation. Lay out the cheese in a baggie in the fridge the night before and lay out the other ingredients.
Line a cookie sheet with a baking mat or parchment paper.
When you are ready to cook, just grab everything that is already staged, pop it in the oven and eat!
