One of the things that motivated me to start writing this blog was wanting to make sure more people know that going low-carb doesn’t mean that you have to give up your favorite food and eat the same things over and over. Healthy eating doesn’t have to be complicated, and you don’t need to feel hungry to lose weight. This recipe for simple pizza cups proves my point.
I know that most of us don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen every day. That is why I love recipes that are quick and that you can make with ingredients you always have in the pantry. This is one of my favorites!
When I discovered that fathead dough is keto-friendly and is a perfect replacement for bread, I started using it in a variety of dishes. And what better way to combine healthy, quick, and delicious than pizza! I call them pizza cups, but you can shape them any shape you want – a calzone, a roll, classic pizza pocket …it’s all the same.
This recipe is a bit of a twist on the regular fathead dough you’re probably used to. The secret ingredient? It uses yeast! And that makes a big difference! I love that you can fill them with anything you like and top it off with your favorite sauce. Even sweet fillings would work. The possibilities are endless, and I hope you love them just as much as I do. You can also make them in a sandwich maker.
The yeast makes the dough rise of a little bit more, and the xanthan gum made the crust more sturdy. Just keep in mind that because of the cheese, they are packed with calories and super filling.
