This recipe for pigs in a blanket creates a low-carb — and gluten-free — homemade dough from mozzarella, almond flour, cream cheese, baking soda and egg yolk.

The recipe comes from Sam Dillard’s “The Keto Kids Cookbook” (Page Street Publishing), and the easy dough could be a great entry point for getting kids interested in baking.

And the whole family will appreciate a friendly baked dough wrapped around their hot dog.
