  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded raw zucchini
  • 1/4 cup pepperoni chopped
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese grated

Instructions
To make the meatballs:
  1. Combine all of the meatball ingredients (except the olive oil) in a medium bowl and mix thoroughly. Form into 15 meatballs.
  2. Heat the oil in a nonstick pan and fry the meatballs until golden brown – about 3 minutes per side. Remove and place on a paper towel lined plate.
To serve:
  1. Place the meatballs in an oven proof dish. Spoon the sauce evenly over each meatball. Top with shredded mozzarella cheese, and a slice of pepperoni.
  2. Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees, or set under the broiler for 2 – 3 minutes until the cheese is melted and the pepperoni is getting crisp. Serve hot.
