Easy Low-Carb Chilli Crackers(Gluten Free)
What do you enjoy when you want a crunchy cracker but are living low-carb and wanting easy healthy family recipes?
These easy low-carb chilli crackers made with mozzarella dough of course!
If you have been low-carb for a while, you will know how versatile mozzarella dough is. It is tasty, easy, low-carb, keto, grain-free, wheat-free and of course, gluten-free.
How to make mozzarella dough
Once you have mastered mozzarella dough (aka Fat Head dough), then you will be able to make a variety of recipes.
Simply make the Fat Head dough in a bowl as per the recipe below, and roll out as thin as you require then bake.
TOP TIP: To prevent the mozzarella dough from sticking, place the low-carb dough in between sheets of baking parchment (NOT baking paper) to roll out.
How to bake low-carb chili crackers
Once you roll out the mozzarella dough, use a pizza cutter to cut the low-carb dough into squares. You may wish to press a fork into each cracker to give it the appearance of your favourite store-bought crackers.
Bake on one side until crispy, then using a wide spatula, flip the crackers over so they crisp on both sides.
Are gluten-free crackers really healthy?

Many people choose to live gluten-free because they are whether intolerant to gluten, or they just feel better when gluten is removed from their daily diet.
Others have chosen to live gluten-free because of all the magazine articles that recommend living gluten-free for health benefits. Unfortunately, when many people decide to live gluten-free they begin to buy gluten-free products such as gluten-free bread, crackers, cakes, cookies etc in the false hope they are healthier - spoiler alert - they're not.
Many people are unaware that many gluten-free products are ultra-processed, fortified, and high-carb. They are generally made with a gluten-free flour such as rice flour, tapioca starch, and potato starch.
So what do you do? If you are living grain-free, you become gluten-free naturally by default.
How to store crackers
Because the low-carb chilli crackers are predominantly made of cheese, they need to be kept in the refrigerator unless they are being eaten straight away.
You can also freeze the low-carb chilli crackers in an airtight container. Just remember to place a sheet of baking parchment in between each layer so they are easy to remove and defrost just as many as you need each time.
To enjoy these easy low-carb chilli crackers, why not serve with pate, pepperoni or even more cheese?
They are also lovely to use with a dip such as pesto or salsa.
