Make pepperoni chips in a snap!
Salty, savory, with a hint of spices, pepperoni chips are irresistible!
When it comes to my all-time favorite keto snacks, there’s always a common denominator — they’ve got to be EASY. If you feel the same, let me introduce you to baked keto pepperoni chips.
You guessed it; they’re simply pepperoni slices, baked to perfection, and capable of making all your wildest dreams come true.
Okay, maybe they don’t have the power to make all your dreams come true, but this snack is pure genius! Pepperoni slices have always been part of my keto diet but I’d never heard of or even thought of making them into chips until Collin turned me onto this method. If you’re new to this too, check out Collin’s Facebook Live video from 2019 when she shared this hack!
How to make keto pepperoni chips:
These seriously are super easy to make. You place the pepperoni slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and broil them for two to three minutes. That is IT!
You can pepperoni chips in the air fryer or microwave too:
- Microwave: Just microwave pepperoni slices between two paper towels on a plate for about a minute. You can Check out this Reel from @ketosnackz microwaving their pepperoni chips!
- Air Fryer: Cook in the air fryer for about 4 to 5 minutes at 380 degrees.
I did set the pepperoni chips on a plate lined with a paper towel to remove some of the grease after cooking, but other than that, you can start snacking immediately.
I can’t say it enough that they take hardly any time to make and you can eat them plain or dip them in any sauce your heart desires. Be careful though, it’s hard to stop eating them after you start. I won’t tell you how many I ate!
Tips for making the best keto pepperoni chips (though trust me, this hack is fool proof):
- Watch the chips closely when broiling them. They can go from perfection to burned in a matter of seconds. If you notice that some chips are done, remove them from the pan and then continue to broil the rest until they’re done.
- The chips will harden and get crunchier as they cool. So as soon as they start to look a little browned, they’re done.
- My pepperoni chips moved around the baking sheet like crazy while in the oven, almost like they were dancing! If you have kids, they might find this very entertaining. I mean, as an adult I was entertained and couldn’t stop watching them.
- The nutrition information for this recipe is for one serving of pepperoni (15 slices). This might vary depending on the brand of pepperoni you use.

I ate these keto pepperoni chips for lunch the day I made them. They’re a quick and easy idea for an after-school snack that the kids can help make too! But honestly, I think adults would gobble these up all the same, so bringing a bowl of them to an upcoming party is another brilliant serving idea.
