As you probably know, I love using low carb tortillas in as many ways as I can! Once you've found a brand that you like (see my tortilla comparison if you haven't!), then you can turn them into chips, nachos, taco shells, and more!
My current favorite is Mission fajita size – and recently I decided to make them into little low carb pizza bites! They're filled with tomato, pepperoni, and cheese – although I appreciate that in the final photos you can't see the pepperoni as I buried it in cheese – but it's there!
How to Make Low Carb Pizza Bites
A 12-hole muffin pan is essential for these, otherwise they're going to get messy. I used 3″ and 3¼” cookie cutters, and managed (just!) to get three rounds out of each 6″ tortilla. By the way – don't discard the off cuts – just trim them up and make them into homemade tortilla chips!
Once the circles have been cut, spray the pan with some non-stick spray and press each tortilla circle into the cups.
Mix together some canned tomato sauce with Italian seasoning, then spoon a tablespoon of the sauce into each tortilla cup.
Slice some pepperoni into quarters (or you can omit this for a vegetarian version), then divide between the pizza bites.
And finally, top with shredded mozzarella!
Bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until the tortillas are crisp at the edges, and the cheese has melted and started to brown.
Leave for 10 minutes before serving – otherwise the sauce will be way too hot!
