Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

Tortillas

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Whisk the eggs and egg whites fluffy and continue to whisk with a hand mixer, preferably for a few minutes. Add cream cheese and continue to whisk until the batter is smooth.
  3. Mix salt, psyllium husk, and coconut flour in a small bowl. Add the flour mix one spoon at a time into the batter and continue to whisk some more. Let the batter sit for a few minutes, or until the batter is thick like an American pancake batter. How fast the batter will swell depends on the brand of psyllium husk – some trial and error might be needed.
  4. Bring out two baking sheets and place parchment paper on each. Using a spatula, spread the batter thinly (no more than ¼"/5 mm thick) into 4-6 circles or 2 rectangles.
  5. Bake on the upper rack for about 5 minutes or more, until the tortilla, turns a little brown around the edges. Carefully check the bottom side so that it doesn't burn.

  7. Turn your oven up to 450°F (225°C).
  8. Spread 1-2 tablespoons of tomato paste, sauce, or ajvar (roasted red pepper sauce) on each low-carb tortilla bread. Salt and pepper if needed. Top with cheese and return to tortillas in the oven.
  9. Bake the mini pizzas in the oven until the cheese has melted.

    What can be a good substitute for coconut milk (I don't like)

    Might try almond milk. Stay away from soy milk due to phytoestrogens (mimics womens estrogen).

    Store bought tortillas are still wheat based and not a good option.

    H-E-B has a great low carb tortilla in the frozen section. They are made using almond flour and everything that is Keto friendly. None of the hidden carb heavy ingredients. Very fortunate to have found these babies.

    Can you have condensed milk in your coffee on the keto diet?

    Generally, that is not a keto friendly option due to carb count and added sweeteners.

  11. Brianna
    Considering Condensed milk as 54g of carbs for 100 grams I would say no. The reason you are adding butter is to add fat and it will make you full

    The nutrition information is per serving, and the default size for this recipe is 4 servings.

    Noticed there is no reference to adding the cheese in the directions. I assume it is after the sauce, but this should be edited.

    What is the name of the H-E-B low carb frozen tortillas

    Just a heads up that most store-bought tortillas are made with ingredients we recommend avoiding. I recommend using this recipe to make your own. Here's our Ingredients to Avoid list that may be helpful for you! https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/ingredients-to-avoid
