Soft Baked Low Carb Keto Pretzels To Go (Step By Step)
We've tweaked the original fat head pizza dough to create many varieties of bagels, pizza crust, cinnamon rolls and these soft-baked keto pretzels.
Recipe type: Snack
Cuisine: Low Carb, Keto, Gluten-Free
Serves: 8
  • 2½ cups of shredded pizza mozzarella (we use Salerno)
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 tablespoon double action gluten-free baking powder
  • 3 ounces cubed softened cream cheese (3/8 cup)
  • 1¼ cup of Almond Flour (not Almond meal)
  • Optional toppings: cinnamon glaze sugar-free
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or prep your pizza stone for the oven
  3. In a large bowl add your dry ingredients then mix
  4. In a medium bowl crack your eggs and beat them.
  5. In microwave-safe medium sized bowl add the shredded mozzarella cheese and softened cream cheese cubes.
  6. Microwave the cheese mixture on high until melted completely about 2 minutes.
  7. Move fast
  8. Start by mixing the cheese up while it's hot and pouring it into the dry mixture bowl.
  9. Slowly start adding the eggs and mixing quickly until you form a dough ball
  10. It's important that you mix this dough thoroughly so you don't see any cream cheese blotches throughout.
  11. Let rest in the bowl for 5 minutes covered with a tea-towel and sat on your stove-top or counter-top where it's warm.
  12. Cut the pretzel dough into 6-8 triangles while inside the bowl.
  13. Take one ball of dough at a time, roll on your cutting board into a rope for each triangle and make sure each rope is even. It's up to you how big or small you make these pretzels.
  14. See photos in post for the directions on how to twist the rope.
  15. Make a U-shape with the rope, cross the ends over and then up- presto you have a pretzel
  16. Brush each pretzel liberally with melted butter and top with coarse sea salt before baking.
  17. Set each pretzel on your baking sheet or stone and bake for 5 minutes to rise a bit then bake for 10-12 mins at 400 degrees or until golden brown. You really have to watch depending on your oven settings.
  18. Remove from oven and enjoy them hot, cold or toasted.
