Ah-Mazing Keto Pizza Bites

Today I was craving pizza and the cravings were relentless. I needed some salty cheese and sweet marinara like no other. And although the cauliflower crust pizza is delicious, it also takes some time and I was feeling lazy. Looking in the fridge, I saw a pack of large salami and thought, hey that would make a great crust. Then I saw my pasta sauce, which I discovered at my local grocery store, and only had TWO net carbs per serving. Then I saw the mozzarella cheese. I realized that I could make keto pizza bites. Winner!

The best part? The little keto pizza bites rang in at just a 1/2 carb each. Depending on your pasta sauce, they could get higher, so either take it easy on the sauce or find a low-carb sauce you like. I can’t emphasize the deliciousness. Roll them up and nom them down.
