About this Cheese Stuffed Pizza Bread:

This is extremely easy to make and extremely flavorful! The ingredients are also super basic and probably most of them you've already got in your pantry; pizza or marinara sauce, cheese and for the bread mix I used one that I usually keep in my pantry.

For the keto bread I used the mix from Fox Hill Kitchens that's gluten free and keto friendly, the instructions are easy to follow and the bread is seriously mega fluffy! I followed the instructions from the container and just added my fillings and toppings.



What's in this Cheese Stuffed Pizza Bread?

As I mentioned earlier, I used a a keto bread mix, pizza sauce with no sugar added, cheese, seasonings, added some extra parmesan on top and fresh basil leaves from my garden! The seasonings included in this recipe are real salt, black pepper and garlic powder.


For the crispiness in this recipe I simply coated the bread before putting into the oven with some egg whites and pok panko, for fully vegetarian option you can use almond flour. This step helps to keep the cheese inside and add the major texture.


For the no sugar added pizza sauce I used Otamot, love it because it's made with simple and wholesome ingredients. Just the perfect sauce to create your favorite recipes!
