How to make Fathead Pizza Pockets
Fathead pizza dough is the base for many keto pizza recipes, and these gluten free hot pockets are no exception. Made with almond flour, shredded cheese, cream cheese, eggs, and seasoning, fathead pizza dough is super easy to throw together. It adds an extra layer of cheesy goodness, and reheats really well.

These aren’t the pizza pockets of your childhood
Cheesy, saucy, pepperoni goodness. Growing up, Hot Pockets had a special place in my heart. Back then, gluten free pizza wasn’t really on my radar and I could enjoy with reckless abandon… and with copious amounts of ranch dressing.
Nowadays, gluten free pizza options are everywhere, but so many of them are loaded with carbs. If you’re looking for creative low carb pizza recipes, this is a great place to start. You can load these keto hot pockets up with any of your favorite pizza toppings. They’re completely customizable, so everyone gets exactly what they want.

These keto pizza pockets are the perfect option for when you’re craving a hot sandwich, or cheesy, ooey gooey pizza. Why choose when you can have both?

- Place the pizza pockets on the prepared baking sheet and brush egg wash over top of each one.
