Keto Christmas Appetizer – Pizza Pull-Apart Bites

I LOVE Christmas time, and I LOVE making cute holiday-themed foods! As someone who follows a keto diet, I am always looking for fun foods for parties that aren’t too high in carbs, and I think I nailed it with this recipe! Today I wanted to share this delicious keto appetizer that is relatively easy to make and perfect for all of the holiday get-togethers! This was inspired by a post on Pinterest, except I replaced the bread dough with a keto friendly fat head dough. It’s low carb and tastes great! Not to mention super adorable as well.

Please excuse the poor plating, we are in the middle of moving and everything is packed, hehe.

The foundation of these pizza pull-apart bites is fat head dough, which will be rolled out, stuffed with cheese and rolled into balls to create the Christmas tree shape!


Fat Head Dough

(I used @keto.copy on IG recipe – it’s a favorite of mine)

  • 10oz Mozzarella Cheese
  • 5oz Almond Flour
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • Italian Seasoning


  • Mozzarella Cheese Sticks
  • Sliced Pepperonis
  • Melted Butter


  1. The first step is to make the fat head dough. Place 10oz of mozzarella cheese into microwave safe bowl, and the dry ingredients of the fathead dough into a second bowl.
  2. Microwave the cheese in 30-second increments until totally melted. (Took me 1.5 minutes)
  3. Once the cheese is melted, crack in one egg and mix until well combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredients ( almond flour, baking powder, and seasoning) into the melted cheese and stir until combined.
  5. Knead the dough with wet hands, to avoid sticking, until dough is well combined.
  6. Set dough aside. Slice up cheese sticks into 4-5 pieces.
  7. Place dough on parchment paper and use a rolling pin to roll until dough is pretty thin, use some oil if the dough is sticky.
  8. Use a knife to cut the dough into squares, experiment to find the perfect size to wrap around your cheese pieces.
  9. Place a piece of cheese on top of the dough and shape it into a ball. Repeat until all the dough is used.
  10. Arrange the dough balls into tree shape and brush with melted butter.
  11. Place in 350-degree oven and cook for 18-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  12. Take out of the oven, brush with melted butter, garnish with cut up pepperoni and serve with a side of marinara sauce.

I hope you enjoy this keto pizza pull-apart recipe, perfect for Christmas!
