Can I prepare these in advance?

I wouldn’t make these pizza bites in advance. The only drawback to working with zucchini is that it tends to release a lot of liquid so it’s not great for meal prep purposes. You can make these the same and they are pretty delicious but leave them sit and I think you’ll be disappointed.

I don’t think they’ll reheat very nicely either so it’s not the best recipe for making in advance.

How many carbs are in these pizza bites?

Each serving is about 4 pizza bites and that is about 3 grams of net carbs so it’s not a bad trade off. You can change the cheese / sauce ratios to get that number down even further but I’ve found that this combination works for me and is low enough in carbs that I feel good about eating these on Keto!
