Keto Mini Pizza Egg Bakes are a delightful and portable way to enjoy the flavors of pizza while staying low-carb. These mini egg bakes are packed with all the classic pizza ingredients, including pepperoni, cheese, and marinara sauce, but without the crust. They make for a perfect keto-friendly breakfast, snack, or even a party appetizer. Let’s dive into the recipe:
Recipe: Keto Mini Pizza Egg Bakes
- 6 large eggs
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup sugar-free marinara sauce
- 1/4 cup sliced pepperoni (or your preferred keto-friendly pizza toppings)
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Cooking spray (for greasing the muffin tin)
1. Preheat and Prepare:
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 6-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
2. Mix the Eggs:
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
3. Assemble the Mini Pizza Egg Bakes:
- Place a spoonful of sugar-free marinara sauce at the bottom of each muffin cup, creating a thin base.
- Divide the sliced pepperoni evenly among the muffin cups on top of the sauce.
- Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over the pepperoni.
4. Pour and Bake:
- Carefully pour the egg mixture over the toppings in each muffin cup, filling them about 2/3 full.
- Place the muffin tin in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes, or until the mini pizza egg bakes are set and slightly golden on top. You can check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into one of the mini bakes; if it comes out clean, they’re ready.
6. Cool and Serve:
- Allow the mini pizza egg bakes to cool for a few minutes in the muffin tin before using a butter knife to gently loosen the edges and remove them.
