Keto Pizza Bites Storage Instructions
Can you make keto pepperoni pizza bites ahead?
Because these take just 20 minutes from start to finish, I recommend making them fresh. If you wanted to prep a few things, you could slice the zucchini, or even pre-bake the zucchini. When you’re ready to eat, simply top with pizza toppings and finish in the oven.

Store these zucchini pepperoni pizza bites in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
Can you freeze baked zucchini pizza bites?
I would not freeze these, as sometimes zucchini can get mushy when it’s frozen and re-heated, especially when it’s the main component of a dish like this.
