Keto Pizza Mini Muffins Recipe

5 / 5 (1 review)

Another family favorite – low carb, gluten-free, keto pizza mini muffins!

This keto pizza mini muffin recipe is totally family-friendly, delicious, and easy! 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 the dipping sauce recipe here.


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!

Almond flour is pretty easy to find now days. 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 my local Costco store too!

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!

Have you tried the keto taco bites recipe yet? It is another easy family favorite! So now I have at least two great recipes that justify my mega mini muffin pan! Totally worth it!
