What are pizza scrolls?
Pizza scrolls are sheets of pizza dough rolled out, filled with traditional pizza toppings then rolled and cut into scroll shapes.
Keto pizza scrolls are compact and easy to pack for an on-the-go meal. You can add your favourite pizza toppings inside the mozzarella dough, roll em'up, then cook the pizza scrolls in only 15 minutes.
How to make pizza scrolls keto?
Traditional pizza dough will contain wheat, all-purpose flour and other starches. A regular slice of pizza would have these nutritional values:
Per slice (107g) = 36g total carbohydtares, 2.5g fibre, (so 33.5g net carbs), 10g fat, 12g protein.
Nutritional values from cronometer.com
Once you discover mozzarella dough, there is no turning back! It is so easy and so versatile. It can be baked sweet or savoury and you only need some basic simple ingredeints.
- mozzarella cheese - always check the nutrition label for any added starches or potato flour that stops the pre-shredded cheese from clumping
- egg - if you are intolerant to eggs, you can actually omit this with great success to make an easy egg-free pizza base
- almond flour - there are substitutions on the recipe below if you wish to use coconut flour
- cream cheese - always use the full-fat cream cheese block
My recipe even comes with instructions on how to use almond flour OR coconut flour (and if you have been low-carb or keto for a while, you will know these two flours cannot be substituted easily.

What is fathead dough?
The original recipe for mozzarella dough was called Fat Head dough. Why? Because Tom Naughton first published the recipe, and he is the creator of Fat Head, the movie. So credit where credit is due. Tom's recipe is now infamous in the low-carb and keto world.
Scroll below and you can see all the recipes I have created using this classic keto dough.
How to make
You simply make the mozzarella dough in under 3 minutes, then roll it out in between two sheets of baking parchment.
Try to avoid high sugar sauces such as BBQ sauce or sweet chili sauce. However I do have a recipe for sugar-free homemade BBQ sauce that is an absolute pantry staple in any keto house.
These are just some of the suggested fillings for your pizza wheels.
- no added sugar tomato paste (tomato paste is very strong flavoured, so it only adds a few carbs to the nutrition values)
- favourite meat such as ham, pepperoni, or salami
- shredded/grated cheese
- herbs such as oregano, rosemary, thyme
Once you have the mozzarella dough rolled out, spread all your favourite pizza toppings inside, roll it up, then slice it into small slices.
Next, place each keto pinwheel onto a lined baking tray, and bake at220C/425F for 15 minutes. And why not sprinkle with even more cheese or herbs before baking? It will turn into a yummy crispy topping.
This recipe can also suit your preference whether you would like to use almond or coconut flour. Now, all that’s left is what you’ll top them with! So, go on and get creative!
