Keto Pepperoni Pizza Roses

If you want to show you love with a recipe, this Keto Pepperoni Pizza Roses recipe is just for you! It’s a great recipe for Valentine’s Day too!

Keto Pepperoni Pizza Roses Recipe Tutorial

If you are having a hard time trying to decide what food to make on Valentine’s Day, this would be perfect. It would make an excellent lunch idea!

This recipe uses the standard Fathead dough recipe with a few minor tweaks.

If I had to rank this on a scale of one to ten on the recipe difficultly schedule it would rank about a 4. The dough is the most time consuming part and it requires you to melt the cheese in the microwave. If you don’t like to use a microwave, then this makes it that much harder because you will need to melt it very slowly over the stove top.

I usually get about 9 large pepperoni pizza roses out of this recipe because I shape the dough in a rectangle shape and cut out 1 inch dough strips to make the roses. The amount of roses you get will depend on how you shape the dough, how thick the dough is, and how thick you cut the dough strips.

How to Prepare the Keto Pepperoni Pizza Roses

Step 1 – Start by making the keto fathead dough first.

  • Start by placing 2 cups of Mozzarella cheese in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat it on high for exactly 1 minute.
  • Add one egg, almond flour and Italian seasonings to the heated mixture and stir it until all the ingredients come together.  It will be a bit crumble at this stage.
  • Allow the dough to cool for a couple of minutes before you handle it but not cool enough to where it starts to stiffen.
  • Layout a huge sheet of parchment paper. This will create a nonstick surface for you to roll this dough out. Place the dough onto the parchment paper.

  • Knead the dough until all the ingredients come together and it’s nice and smooth
  • Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough as thin as it will go into a rectangle shape.  Once the dough cools it will hold it’s place better.
  • Once the dough is rolling thin in a rectangle shape, use a knife or a pizza cutter to cut one inch strips.
