Tips for Preparing Keto Pizza Bites
Do you love making keto pizza bites as much as I do? Then in that case, here are a few handy tips to keep in mind that should help you take your keto pizza bite making game to the next level:
- Crust vs no crust. While this particular keto pizza bite recipe is crustless, there are also a variety of ways to make pizza bites using keto approved ingredients to make a low carb crust. I recommend trying out something like a cauliflower crust pizza bite recipe after you make this crustless recipe in order to see which method of making keto pizza bites you like best.
- Mix up the toppings. Don’t be afraid to mix up the toppings list in keto pizza bite recipes. As long as your topping choices adhere to basic keto principles, then feel free to use whatever toppings you prefer when making your pizza bites. Prefer pepperoni pizza bites? Make those. Want garlic, onion, and grilled chicken instead? Then go for that instead!
Can I Freeze Keto Pizza Bites Like Regular Pizza?
You can absolutely freeze these keto pizza bites just as easily as you would a regular pizza.
I would first recommend flash freezing all of your leftover pizza bites on a baking sheet before then transferring each of the individual pieces into either a freezer-safe bag or airtight container. You can then keep the pizza bites stored in the freezer like this for up to 12 months.
Best Way to Reheat Keto Pizza Bites
When you’re ready to reheat your pizza bites, it’s recommended to again preheat your oven to 350℉ and then transfer the frozen pizza bites to a baking sheet. Heat them up in the oven for between 12-15 minutes or until they’re warmed through.
