Cheesy Zucchini Pizza Bites β€” Yummy Keto Snack Idea!

Keto Zucchini Pizza Bites

yield: 24 SERVINGS

prep time: 10 MINUTES

cook time: 25 MINUTES

total time: 35 MINUTES

Ingredients

  • 2 cups grated zucchini (about 2-3 medium size zucchinis)
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese, grated
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup cooked Italian sausage
  • 1/2 cup mini pepperoni (or regular cut into quarters)

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

2

In a large bowl, grate zucchini using a manual grater. Place zucchini in a cheesecloth (or paper towels) over a bowl and squeeze all extra liquids out. It's important to get out as much moisture as you can. Pour out the liquid from the bowl and place the drained zucchini back in.

3

Add all remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix together.

4

Scoop out 1-inch balls (I used a tablespoon) and place them on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

5

Bake in the oven for 25 minutes or until slightly golden brown. Remove them from the oven and serve with your favorite keto marinara or other keto dipping sauce. Enjoy!

Tips for making the best keto zucchini pizza bites:

  • In this zucchini bite recipe, I used sharp cheddar for a rich flavor, but you can use your favorite cheese to switch it up to your tastes!
  • If you do not have cheesecloth on hand, use paper towels instead to ring out the excess liquids from the zucchini.
  • Feel free to add in any of your favorite pizza toppings as well.
