Keto Vegetarian Pizza Bagel Snack

You can leave the frozen, processed stuff in the frozen aisle! This pizza bagel snack recipe is better than what you can buy at the store. First, you’ll need to make Keto bagels. This recipe is a little different than the Carb Manager Low Carb Bagels recipe, so follow this one for the most accurate nutritional information. This Keto vegetarian recipe has a simple pizza topping of minced mushrooms in marinara sauce. A sprinkle of parmesan cheese tops the bagels. At your discretion, you can add to this recipe with more vegetables or add a protein. You can even add multiple cheeses for a 3-cheese pizza recipe! Further down in this introduction are some other suggestions for pizza bagel toppings you can play around with. The nutritional information for the original recipe here is for 1 slice of pizza bagel, but you can enjoy 2-4 slices for a Keto-friendly snack.

What Else Can I Put On My Pizza Bagels?

If you can put it on a pizza, you can put it on a pizza bagel! The key here is that any ingredient you use needs to be finely minced. If you can keep your ingredients chopped small, you can easily top the Keto pizza bagels. Other vegetarian Keto toppings include minced bell peppers, olives, zucchini, or spinach. If you want to add animal protein to your pizza bagels, you can mince pepperoni or cook Italian sausage to a fine, crispy crumble. For more fun flavor twists, try mixing buffalo sauce into your marinara for a buffalo chicken pizza bagel. Keto barbecue sauce would also make a fun sauce topping for a BBQ pizza bagel. To upgrade your pizza bagels to ‘gourmet’, garnish them with fresh herbs or break out the truffle oil.

What Makes These Bagels Keto?

The recipe used here to make the bagels is very similar to the Carb Manager Low Carb Fathead Dough. With just a few minor changes in ingredients, you can alter the consistency of the dough to reflect a bagel texture. A proper bagel has a chewy texture that is dense. This is why you can load toppings and spreads onto a bagel better than another style of bread without it caving in. You’ll also notice traditional bagels have a coating on the outside and a fluffy inside. This Keto bagel recipe uses a specific mixture of mozzarella and cream cheese to give the bagel just the right amount of elasticity. Added xanthan gum also contributes to the density and chewiness of the Keto bagels. By brushing a layer of egg over the top of the bagels before baking, you can ensure a golden brown coating that emulates what you see on store-bought bagels.

Recipe Steps

steps 6

3 h 1 min

  • Step 1

    At least 2 hours before you want to bake your bagels, make the Fathead Dough. In a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, salt, and xanthan. Whisk the egg together and stir into the almond flour. Set the bowl aside. In a pot over low heat, melt the mozzarella and cream cheese together until you have a smooth, creamy, melted cheese.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Let the melted cheese cool for 30 seconds off the stove. Then, mix the melted cheese into the almond flour bowl. Mix and knead the wet dough until all the yellow and white streaks are gone. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and cool in your refrigerator for at least 2 hours before continuing.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    When it’s time to bake the bagels, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Divide the dough into 4 portions. Use your thumb and fingers to press a hole into the center of each portion of dough and pinch the dough into a bagel shape about 3 inches wide. Arrange the bagels on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper. Spray the top of each bagel once with a spritz of pan spray, and sprinkle half the onion powder, garlic powder, and sesame seeds over the bagels. Flip them over. Then, whisk together a second egg and brush it lightly over the clean top and sides of the bagels. Sprinkle the remaining onion powder, garlic powder, and sesame seeds over the bagels.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Bake the tray of bagels for 25 minutes until the tops are golden brown, just like a bagel. Set the bagels aside to cool once done for about 10 minutes. They’ll need to be cool enough for you to touch. Slice each bagel through the middle and lay the bagels open with the insides facing up on the sheet tray. Place the bagels back in your oven for 5 minutes. This additional 5 minutes will finish off the cooking of the doughy centers and give the edges crisper doneness as if you were toasting them.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    While the bagels are baking for the first 25 minutes, you can make the vegetarian pizza topping. Mince cremini mushrooms into small pieces. The finer the pieces, the better it will be for pizza bagels. Toss the minced mushroom together with the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Sautee the mushroom until just tender. Then, reduce the stove to low heat and stir in the marinara and oregano. Let the ingredients cook together for an additional 1-2 minutes over low heat. Set this topping aside to cool for the next step.
    Step 5
  • Step 6

    Leave your oven on and turn the broiler onto high when the open-faced bagels are done toasting. Use a spoon to spread the mushroom topping over each bagel slice, spreading it to the edges. Sprinkle about ¼ teaspoon of grated parmesan over each pizza bagel. Set the pizza bagels under your broiler for just 3 minutes or until the cheese melts and turns barely golden brown. You can add any additional toppings or seasonings at this point at your discretion. Serve warm. The recommended serving is 2 pizza bagel slices (1 whole bagel).
