Comfort food has always been something related to bread, don’t you think? A crusty Italian loaf smothered in butter, croutons for a salad, rolls with dinner, french toast, bread pudding and on and on and on. The staple of an American diet has been bread.
But once you decide to be on a low carb diet, standard bread is out of the question which could make anyone feel the loss of that once beloved food. No worries though, I’ve created a ton of low carb bread recipes to make you feel like you’re not missing out on anything!
we all seem to be in unanimous agreement: fathead pizza is delicious. So what about fathead pizza rolls? I think you guys are going to love them just as much as I do!
I’m usually a meatza girl when it comes to satisfying my pizza cravings, but people rave about fathead pizza. I was beginning to wonder if it truly lived up to the hype, so I finally tried it. Oh boy, am I glad I did! It’s like… real pizza. With a bready crust and everything. Seriously, if I ordered a pizza and this was delivered to me, I don’t think I would have even questioned it. Keto meatza is fantastic, but sometimes you just want bready goodness, ya know?
When I shared my Keto Cinnamon Rolls, they went viral immediately! The texture is pretty outstanding and I can’t use the typical almond flour like most low carb bloggers because my youngest son has a tree nut allergy. So coconut flour and sesame flour are the choice of low carb alternatives I’ve been working with and perfecting. Today’s recipe is an adaption on a savory take to my cinnamon rolls. And they are just as good as they look. They will completely fulfill that bread craving and that pizza craving!
- 170 g pre shredded/grated cheese mozzarella is the best or Edam/mild cheese
- 85 g almond meal/flour
- 2 tbsp cream cheese
- 1 egg medium
- pinch salt to taste
- Mix the shredded/grated cheese and almond flour/meal in a microwaveable bowl. Add the cream cheese. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute. (see recipe notes)
- Stir then microwave on HIGH for another 30 seconds.
- Add the egg and salt, mix gently.
- Place the keto dough in between 2 pieces of baking parchment/paper (see photos above). Remove the top baking paper/parchment and cut into a rectangle shape.
- Spread tomato paste over the prepared dough. Add slices of ham or pepperoni and other favourite fillings. Roll up tightly using the bottom sheet of baking parchment.
- Cut into slices and place each one on a baking tray (cookie tray), and bake at 220C/425F for 12-15 minutes, or until golden.
