Chef's pro tip
Make sure to keep your eagle eyes on those pizza bread rolls - we want them baked to perfection without any nasty singes! If you're not using a cast iron skillet, the heat might play a little game of hide and seek, potentially causing the bottom to get too toasty too fast. To outsmart this, go easy on the heat, keeping it medium-low. And hey, if you notice the top of your bread throwing a tan faster than the rest, cover it with aluminum foil and reduce the heat until it is cooked through.

This was my first recipe from your sight. Made it last night and it was a hit! Ate my first leftovers today, and they are better then last night. Added a tiny bit of stevia to sauce, but otherwise no changes. Will do it again! Thanks!! (side note: because of lots o cheese was a bit swollen this morning, so drink, drink, drink around this dinner-well worth it!)
Alex Lester says
Awesome to hear that you enjoyed them! With so much cheese and pepperoni it is a good idea to load up on water, thanks for sharing!
This is my son’s favorite meal, and unfortunately we just found out he is sensitive to eggs. I tried using chia seed egg replacers and it was a big fail. Do you have any suggestions for replacing eggs in this recipe?
Alex Lester says
Hi Kat, there's no way to replace eggs in this recipe.
One, probably dumb, question. Do I bake the dinner rolls first, then adding the pizza ingredients and baking from there? Or do I have raw dough in my skillet, add ingredients, then bake?
Cast Iron Keto says
Hi Velda, not a dumb question at all. It does seem our instructions are quite confusing. You'll make the rolls up until the point where you put the raw dough in the skillet, then layer in the pizza ingredients then bake. Hope this helps!
Are the nutrition values for one serving, or the entire skillet?
Cast Iron Keto says
Hi James, the nutritional info is for one serving.
Fun recipe! Thanks!
Can you use sausage for this recipe instead of the pepperoni?
Cast Iron Keto says
Sure, just make sure the sausage is cooked before adding it to the rolls.
