Pepperoni chips are the easiest keto snack to make and one of the best! Enjoy them as a super simple one-ingredient low-carb snack or jazz them up with one of my flavor suggestions in the post. Ready in under 10 minutes.
What do you like to snack on? I'm a big fan of anything crispy.
If I have the time, I like to make crackers of all kinds, for example my Low Carb Crackers.
But what if you're after a bit of crunch without having to mix any dough?
The answer it simple. Pepperoni chips! One ingredient, zero net carbs and seriously crispy texture.
They are an easy snack for one or great to serve when you've got a crowd over.
This recipe also works well with chorizo or any salami!
Step 1: Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Arrange the pepperoni slices in a single layer with a little space between them. If flavouring, add now (see bottom of post for details).
Step 2: Bake in the oven for 6 - 8 minutes. Be careful not to burn and don’t overcook them as they will crisp up when cooled.
(You can also bake them directly on a wire rack, with parchment paper placed underneath to catch the oil.)
Step 3: Remove the pepperoni chips from the oven and soak up the excess oil with a paper towel.
Yes. Microwave the pepperoni in 20 second intervals. Mine took 60 seconds. The cooking time will depend on your pepperoni and on the power of your microwave. They will crisp up just like in the oven, only without browning.
Yes. Air fry in a single layer at 200C / 400F for 2-3 minutes or until crisp.
Try these flavor add-ons:
- Italian seasoning
- Chilli powder or chili flakes
- Grated parmesan
- Cheddar cheese
And this is my personal fave:
Margarita Pepperoni. Top each slice with sun dried tomato paste, tomato sauce or tomato puree, 1 mini buffalo mozzarella, sliced and serve with fresh basil leaves or Italian herb seasoning. (This version is an upside down version of my low carb pizza bites!)
Treat them just like a cracker! Dip in salsa, keto hummus, sour cream, queso or ranch dressing, or top with a chunk of cheese.
The chips stay crispy for 1-2 days if stored in an airtight container.

Could you do this with hard salami? My daughter loves hard salami and would like to try it..
Yes, it should work. Hard salami may crisp up quicker.
