  • tomato paste
  • pepperoni slices
  • peppers sliced

  • Toasted sandwich maker
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Mixing bowls


Mozzarella Dough

  • Mix the shredded/grated cheese and almond flour/meal in a microwaveable bowl. Add the cream cheese. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute.
  • Stir then microwave on HIGH for another 30 seconds.
  • Add the egg, salt and mix gently.
  • Roll the keto cheese dough between 2 pieces of baking parchment/paper. Do not roll as thin as a thin pizza crust. It needs to be a little thicker so it is sturdy and will hold the pizza filings.
  • Remove the top baking paper/parchment.  Cut the dough into squares that will fit onto your prepared baking sheet, or the same size as your toasted sandwich maker.

Pizza Hot Pocket Filling Ideas

  • Oven: Place 4 squares of dough onto the lined baking tray. Place your selected pizza pocket fillings on top. Cover with another square of mozzarella dough and crimp the edges shut. Bake at 220c (425F) for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

    Sandwich maker: Place one square on the bottom of the sandwich maker, add your choice of  fillings, place another square of dough on the top, press the lid of the sandwich maker down and cook for 3-5 minutes until golden.


Nutrition panel only shows the mozzarella dough for 1 pizza pocket. This recipe makes 4 pizza pockets.
Fillings are varied and additional. You may choose as much or as little pizza filling as you like.
Mozzarella dough can also be made by replacing the almond meal/flour with ¼ cup (4 tbsp) coconut flour.

No sandwich toaster? No problem. Simply cut 8 large squares of keto cheese dough, add your chosen fillings in the centre or 4 of the squares. Place the remaining 4 keto dough squares on top, pinch the edges together and place on a lined baking tray and cook at 220C/425F for 12-15 minutes, or until golden.
