Stuffed Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Dippers (Grain-Free Coconut Flour)

Grain-Free Pizza Dippers

Today I have a recipe created especially to replace pizza dippers. Remember that the texture when using coconut flour [affiliate link] is never going to be exactly like what you remember, back when you ate “regular” gluten-filled flour pizza. The texture of these dippers is more cake-like, but still very tasty.  What I like the best is you can pick them up and dip them!

These dippers are very nutrient dense, so you will probably find this dish will feed quite a few people. We sliced ours into 16 pieces and my husband and I were stuffed after eating four pieces each. We have had them with the pepperoni and cheese, and without and they are very good prepared either way.

Please be sure that you have Parchment Baking Paper or are using a silicone dish because these do tend to stick.
