Pizza Bagel Bites

Serves 4

We served these grain-free Pizza Bagel Bites to a crowd and no one even knew they were low carb, but they sure did love them! These are so delicious! We kept this recipe simple, but feel free to use any of your favorite pizza toppings in addition to what we suggest such as sausage, mushroom, olives and anchovy!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:
Bagels:
2 large eggs
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons plain cream
1 ¼ cups almond flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
Pizza Toppings:
1 6-ounce can of tomato paste
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried Italian herbs
1 teaspoon raw apple cider vinegar
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
16 pepperoni slices
8 pepperoni slices, chopped
Garnishes: dried fennel seeds


Instructions:

Prepare your mini bagels by preheating your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Melt shredded cheese and cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl and stir very well to combine.

Mix 1 egg, almond flour and baking powder in a large mixing bowl, making sure there are no clumps.

Pour in melted cheese and stir well to combine.

Form 8 small balls with your hands and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Flatten a bit with your hand and form a hole in the center of each ball with your thumb to create a traditional bagel shape.

Brush each bagel with the remaining egg.

Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before slicing in half.
Prepare your pizza sauce by mixing the canned tomato paste, sea salt, garlic powder, dried Italian herbs and raw apple cider vinegar very well.

Spread over each halved bagel and top with a slice of pepperoni (it will cover the whole bagel). Sprinkle each pizza with mozzarella cheese and chopped pepperoni and more dried Italian herbs and dried fennel seed, if using.

Bake in the oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 5-8 minutes.

Remove from the oven and serve, storing any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Enjoy!
