I had a really nice relaxing three day weekend. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to carry over any of that relaxation into the start of this week. It’s been crazy busy these last few days so I really needed this pizza treat.

This recipe starts with my low carb microwave bread. I made a few tweaks to make it taste more like a base for cheesy breadsticks. Then after cooking it, I topped it with a little bit of tomato sauce, more cheese and mini pepperoni.

This tasted so good! It is cheesy and flavorful. I gobbled it up in seconds.

Recipe Tips

  • Do not substitute coconut flour with almond flour. The recipe needs coconut flour to work. Coconut flour is highly absorbent and will absorb a lot of the liquid in the batter, which then helps form the bread.
  • I cooked this bread in a 4-inch wide mug. The bread pulls away from the sides of the mug when it’s finished cooking. I then plated it into a 3.5 inch wide ramekin.

  1. Do you have the nutritional values?


  2. I loved it! Made for breakfast and it was fluffy and delicious, which is not common to achieve with the microwave I currently have. Every mug cake and bread was always spongy and raw in the middle and dry around. I used a ramekin for the first time for mw baking. I will try a mug and small glass dish to see what happens and will use the batter without the toppings and put only salt, sweetener and a little yeast for bread flavor. I’m only not sure if I can omit the parmesan or that affects the texture? Thank you!


  3. thank you so much for this recipe!!! HOLY COW, it was soooooooo good!! (I haven’t had pizza for nearly three months, so that might be part of the reason for my excitement, but my daughter who was eating regular pizza had a taste of mine and agreed that it was even better than her Little Caesars).
    I did make a minor change… I made the dough but instead of cooking it in a bowl or mug, I sprayed some Pam on a plate, spread the dough on the plate and cooked it that way, so it was more like a pizza crust, then I topped it with sauce, cheese, etc. I even cut it in little slices and ate iy just like a pizza!

    Thanks for the awesome recipe, so tasty!!


  4. Y’all. This was good. And fast. And kicked that pizza craving right in the face. Definitely best hot before it gets gummy. Thanks Kirbie!

  5. Hello, the recipe says do not replace the coconut flour with almond flour, but would I be able to use whole wheat flour? I just don’t want to have to go out and buy something that I might not use again (I’m not keto)
    Thanks!


  6. I’ve made this twice so far and it’s definitely a keeper. I put on goat cheese and sundried tomatoes for a topping once and the first time just made a simple cheese pizza. I know she said no modifications on the coconut flour but all I had that was close was unflavored whey protein powder and I used that both times and it came out great.
