In the realm of ketogenic living, finding creative and delicious alternatives to traditional favorites is part of the adventure. One such culinary gem that brings the joy of pizza without the carb overload is the Keto Pepperoni Pizza Bites. These bite-sized wonders not only satisfy your pizza cravings but do so without compromising your commitment to a low-carb lifestyle. Let's embark on a journey to craft these delightful treats that are not just keto-friendly but also bursting with flavor.


  • 24 slices of sandwich pepperonis
  • 1 cup mozzarella, cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 1/4 cup pizza sauce
  • Fresh basil, shredded


  1. 1. Preheat and Prepare:
    Preheat your oven to 400 degrees, setting the stage for the culinary magic about to unfold. Assemble the other key players: sandwich pepperonis, mozzarella cubes, pizza sauce, and fresh basil.

  2. 2. Slice and Shape:
    Take each pepperoni and, with a delicate touch, cut about halfway up in the pattern of a cross – a crucial step that will allow the pepperonis to transform into perfect little pizza cups during baking.

  3. 3. Arrange and Bake:
    Place the sliced pepperonis in a mini muffin pan, allowing the cut sides to overlap and create a cup shape. Bake in the preheated oven for a brief 5 minutes, just until the pepperonis achieve a delightful crispiness.

  4. 4. Drain and Repeat:
    Once out of the oven, carefully remove the pepperonis from the pan and use a paper towel to absorb any residual grease. Place them back in the pan, ready to be filled with keto goodness.

  5. 5. Sauce and Cheese:
    Time to add the heart and soul of any pizza – the sauce and cheese. Spoon half a teaspoon of pizza sauce into each pepperoni cup, and then crown it with a small cube of mozzarella.

  6. 6. Melt and Merge:
    Return the pan to the oven for another 2 to 5 minutes, just until the cheese achieves that perfect gooey melt. Keep an eye on them; you want the cheese to dance on the edge of golden perfection.

  7. 7. Garnish and Enjoy:
    As the Keto Pepperoni Pizza Bites emerge from the oven, transfer them to a plate, ready for the finishing touch. Optionally, garnish with shredded fresh basil, adding a burst of color and an extra layer of flavor.
