The worst part of any diet is the snacks.

Am I right?!

I can deal with light low carb breakfasts. I can deal with salad and protein for lunch. I can even deal with (and often enjoy the challenge of) lean healthy dinners.

However when it comes to quick snacks, carrot sticks and raw almonds get old really fast.

These Low Carb Pepperoni Pizza Cups are extremely low in carbs and are also gluten free. Plus, once the cups are baked, drain them on a paper towel to remove extra fat!

You can even make a paleo version by using almond or cashew cheese.

How to Make 5-Ingredient Low Carb Pepperoni Pizza Cups Recipe #paleo #superbowl

Start with large “sandwich style” pepperoni slices that are at least 2 inches wide. You can find them in the deli section at the grocery store.

Snip 4 – 1/2 inch cuts to help the pepperoni fit down into mini muffin pans better. (You can skip this step and just press them down in the muffin pans, Yet the cups aren’t as nicely shaped and don’t drain as well.)

HOW TO: 5-Ingredient Low Carb Pepperoni Pizza Cups Recipe #paleo #superbowl

Bake the pepperoni cups for 5 minutes. Cool for a few minutes in the pan so they firm up. Then move the cups to a paper towel to drain off the grease.

The cups can now be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. Or you can fill them with any filling you like and enjoy right away!

For the Low Carb Pepperoni Pizza Cups, wipe the grease out of the pan and place the cups back in. Put a small basil leaf in the bottom of each cup, followed by a little bit of pizza sauce, a mini mozzarella ball, and an olive slice.

Bake the cups again for 2-3 minutes to melt the cheese, then dive in!

You might be tempted to skip the pre-baking and pepperoni cup cooling, and just add all the ingredients into the cups at the beginning. I encourage you to resist the temptation. Low Carb Pepperoni Pizza Cups are much crispier and hold their shape better if you prebake the cups before you fill them.

However, you can drain the cups at the end to save time. It’s up to you.

    This is a perfect solution for my son’s birthday that is getting closer. I would maybe use the mild version of salami slices. Great! Thank you !

    Very disappointed with this recipe. Followed it to a T. Burnt the first bach of pepperoni, use 350 rather then 400 and keep an eye on the pepperoni. After cooling and draining the cups and following the filling directions, these cups became super greasy after baking them the second time. I truly had high hopes. Definitely will not make these again.

    Just made these! Awesome! I suggest leaving the completed snacks in the muffin tin for five minutes, not two or three. I had better luck with them holding their shape.  Great flavor, thanks for the recipe!
