Make your Saturday nights extra fun with a tasty little snack. Enter our crispy pizza chips recipe! The so-called “pizza dough” is made out of a thin layer of parmesan cheese. It’s topped with stretchy mozzarella, pepperoni, and seasoning. These pizza crisps are cooked to golden brown perfection for a crispy snack. They hold their shape (and your toppings) really well.
Whoever invented these must be a genius because we can’t get enough of these chips! Compared to a classic pizza, they definitely only take a short while to make. They are crunchy, light, and definitely something you’ll be snacking on more than once. You can make these snacks in batches to serve or even make it with your friends on a Saturday night.
The salty parmesan is your base layer, followed by mozzarella, pepperoni, and finally, Italian seasoning. But don’t let that stop you from letting your imagination run wild. You can customize these bite-sized snacks to your liking. Top them with some Italian sausages, bell peppers, olives – the works! It’s a blank canvas that you can paint your favorite toppings on to your heart’s desire.

Frequently Asked Questions
What can I use to replace pepperoni?
You can switch up pepperoni with any other protein. Some recommendations would be to use ground beef or bite-sized chicken strips. Remember to cook any meat alternatives before topping as they won’t cook properly when topped raw. For vegan options, try replacing the pepperoni with some tempeh or tofu crumbles. They will yield that same “meat-like” flavor and still taste scrumptious!
Can I use a different kind of cheese for the base layer?
While our pizza chips recipe comes perfect with that deliciously salty parmesan cheese, you can definitely change it up a bit. Try using shredded Mexican cheese and gouda to retain that same toothsome flavor!
Are these pizza chips keto-friendly?
They sure are! This recipe is low in carbohydrates thanks to the replacement of usual pizza dough with cheese. The added bit of protein from the pepperoni also helps in this case. It’s a light snack that comes with so much flavor. You never have to feel guilty about snacking on these!
