Low Carb, Gluten-Free Keto Pizza Mini Muffins!

This low carb pizza muffins recipe is totally family-friendly, delicious, and easy! Also, if you’re on the keto diet you’ll be glad to hear these muffins are keto friendly as well!

The savory mini muffins are full of mozzarella and pepperoni, bursting with Italian flavor! Dip them in a low-sugar pizza sauce or marinara to really bring it home. Rao’s Marinara Sauce is low carb and delicious – you can find it at Whole Foods or Amazon. For an easy homemade option, I use this crazy bread copycat dipping sauce (found at the bottom of the recipe).

Got Picky Eaters?

I have an especially picky eater at my house. There can be a lot of groaning and moaning when my kids hear what’s for dinner. But when I first presented these keto pizza muffins, he said, “I like pizza and I like muffins, so I think I’m going to like these!” Hooray!

And yes, he does like them, which is a huge win. We all like them! I am so glad to have found the recipe on All Day I Dream About Food. She’s a low carb recipe genius!

Ingredients for Low Carb Pizza Muffins

Almond flour is pretty easy to find nowadays. Check your local store in the baking aisle or health foods section. Or you can make your own almond flour by grinding blanched almonds into a fine powder. Almond flour is available on Amazon and at my local Costco store too!

Follow the Whey

I know it is tempting, but don’t omit the whey. It helps the muffins rise and keeps them from falling apart! I ordered unflavored whey protein from Amazon, but your local store may also carry it.

It will probably come in handy for other keto and gluten-free baking recipes too. Honestly, I think it is worth the purchase just for this recipe!
