Low Carb Pizza Rolls
The holiday season always reminds me of family time. By family time, I mean those moments that are spend sitting around with family and talking or watching a movie. We really are having family time to do nothing really productive other than just being together. These are the kinds of moments that make for the best memories. Don’t you agree?
When we have family time that is not really productive, we like to have good food to bond over. This kind of food should be simple to make yet, yummy to eat. I believe another term for this simple food would be “comfort food”. Because, having special family time should be about making memories and not be about spending a lot of time in the kitchen preparing food.
Our favorite comfort food has really got to be pizza.
Growing up in Chicago, I ate plenty of pizza. There is enough pizza in the area to eat a different pizza every day for a year. However, we really just enjoyed it on a weekly basis.
When I moved to a new town, the pizza was a bit less satisfying than the stuff I grew up with.
Thus, I had to learn how to make my own. And, then there was the time that I went on that famous low carb diet. It was just as easy to figure out how to make a low carb pizza. Thankfully, that pizza was only a weekly thing and not a daily thing or I would not have lost any weight on that diet.
The most important element in making a pizza low carb is to make the crust low carb.
This is because crust is of course a bread and bread has carbs in it. To make a low carb pizza crust, which you will need for this recipe, check out my recipe for low carb pizza crust.. I also have a wheat pizza crust recipe that is worth checking out as well (not low carb).
These pizza rolls will obviously have pizza worthy ingredients in them as well.
The cheese and meats that you would normally see in a pizza usually have low to no carbohydrates. The vegetables that you add may have carbohydrates in them, such as onions or peppers. For the sauce, it is important to use a regular tomato sauce as many sauces have sugar and carbs added to them.
However, there are some low carb pizza sauce options that are available online.
Be sure that you read the labels on everything that you use in this recipe to assure that they are low carb as well.
How to make Low Carb Pizza Rolls
What you will need to make these Low Carb Pizza Rolls
Please read the information in this post concerning the low carb ingredients that you will need for this recipe.
What you will need to make this recipe.
- Low Carb Pizza Dough- see post for details. One pizza dough as made in the recipe.
- Provolone (can sub in Mozzarella) Cheese Slices- slices (versus shredded) work best as we will be rolling the dough. – 10-12 Slices.
- Lowest Carb Sauce that you can find- see post for details- 1 cup.
- Sliced Meat, such as pepperoni or salami- 10-12 slices if large otherwise, as needed to cover pizza dough.
- Veggies- 1 cup if desired. Be sure to use low carb vegetables. This works best if you are not using meat as using both may make the pizza too thick may make it difficult to roll.
- Additional cheese that is shredded or grated such as Parmesan, Italian Blend or Mozzarella- 1/2 cup.
How to make these low carb pizza rolls.
- Preheat your oven to 375. Lay out a large piece of parchment paper that we will use to prepare and bake our pizza rolls in. Place another piece of parchment paper on a rimmed baking sheet such as a jelly roll sheet that we will use to bake the rolls on in the oven.
- Roll out the pizza dough to about 1/4″ on your parchment paper. If the dough seems sticky you may need to sprinkle it with a light dusting of flour or spray with nonstick spray.
- When your dough has been rolled out, layer the sliced cheese over it covering the dough as much as possible.
- Place the sliced meat (or vegetables if using them instead) over the the cheese slices spreading out as much as possible. Tip: avoid 1/2″ of the edge of the dough when placing ingredients on the dough to ensure that you will be able to easily roll up the dough.
- Lightly spread the sauce over the meat. Then sprinkle the remaining cheese (shredded/grated) over the pizza.
- Working with the part of the dough that is furthest away from you, roll the pizza up toward you. I start by making a turn with the edges and then the center working my way towards me. I then pinch the edges and repeat the process. When the pizza is rolled up, you can slice it into 1/2-3/4″ slices. Place the slices on the parchment paper that is on the pan.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes or until bubbly and browning.
