Pizza Crisps ~ 2 Minute Low Carb Lunch

Pizza Crisps are a super quick ultra low carb meal or snack that is fast, warm, satisfying and crunchy. Make them in under 2 minutes.  Pizza Crisps were born out of hunger for a long overdue lunch.  I poked my nose in the fridge to see if there was anything super quick I could just grab.

Now I’m sure you know like I do that ‘super quick’ and ‘just grab’ aren’t usually used in the same breath as the phrase ‘low carb’.

In fact the usual phrase would be ‘planning and preparation’.  But we both know that’s not always possible in the real world.

Pizza Crisps are a super quick ultra low carb meal or snack that is fast, warm, satisfying and crunchy. Make them in under 2 minutes.  Lucky for me inspiration struck at the same time as hunger.  I’ve made cheese crisps before, you may have seen my ‘Dorketos’ recipe on Baking Outside the Box.  When I saw the little packets of Provolone rounds and pepperoni in the refrigerator, visions of pizza began to dance in my head.

It was just too easy.  I snagged a piece of baking parchment and tossed the provolone rounds on it, followed promptly followed by a small handful of pepperoni pieces and zapped the whole thing until the cheese was crispy and the pepperonis were sizzling.  Did I mention that sans the Marinara that these are ZERO carbs?

Pizza Crisps are a super quick ultra low carb meal or snack that is fast, warm, satisfying and crunchy. Make them in under 2 minutes.  I tossed them on a plate and warmed up two Tablespoons of marinara sauce that I willing gave up 2 carbs for. Next time maybe I’ll be classy and not quite so starved and add some chopped basil leaves to the toppings.  It took just two minutes to make lunch that day.  Sigh-of-relief. – Enjoy! – Laura
