Perfect Fathead Dough – Keto Pizza

Love this post? Tell everyone about it!

If you’ve been living a Keto lifestyle or researching it, chances are, you’ve heard of Fat Head Dough. Quite frankly, it’s everywhere and that’s a good thing! It is arguably the most popular “dough” alternative out there.

PIN THIS RECIPE NOW!

Like most families we know, we have Pizza Night in our homes at least a couple of times a month. One of our favorite keto pizza “dough” to use is Fat Head.

What is it?

The basic recipe is mozzarella and cream cheeses mixed with almond flour and an egg… that’s it. It is pretty straightforward and simple. The idea behind it is that the mozzarella cheese mimics that all-to-familiar and oh-so-loved pull and bite that traditional gluten loaded pizza dough offers up. And, it does a pretty good job of doing so.

Love at First Bite

We heard about this dough a few weeks into our keto journey and, well, had to try it. We really enjoyed it (for what it was) but we weren’t completely in love. We both thought it was missing something. FLAVOR!! So, we began to add ingredients here and there in an effort to perfect this dough to become a favorite.

This and That

We have added and taken away and continued to tweak our recipe until we thought it was perfect… The most loved addition to our dough is baking Yeast. Although we don’t add it for the rise, we do however add it for flavor. It’s a great addition. We often add seasonings depending on the use of the dough, as well, for flavor.

The Mistake

Then, one night, we left out an ingredient. The Egg! We flat out forgot to add it in there! By the time we caught our mistake…it was too late. The pizza had already met up the toppings and we had to roll with it. The original fathead dough recipe calls for an egg, but our unintentional mistake yielded a PERFECT keto pizza crust that we HAVE to share with y’all! It is seriously good.

Crispy Bottom

A lot of keto pizza dough is well, floppy and doesn’t hold up well against the toppings. This dough does the job quite well. We missed that all too familiar crispy bottom and pillow-y top in our pizza crust and well… we got it!

We. Are. In. Love.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 3 oz cream cheese
  • 2 tsp of yeast (for flavor)
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut flour
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder (optional)
  • 2 tsp of Italian seasoning (optional)

Instructions:

Gather your ingredients. Preheat oven to 420 to 425 degrees (depends on your oven). Cover pizza pan or half sheet pan with parchment paper.

In a microwave-safe bowl combine ALL ingredients.

Heat in microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 min, stirring every 30 min.

Mix very well until a dough forms.

Place dough on the parchment-lined pan and spread out as thin as you want it. It helps to wet your hands slightly as you work so the dough does not stick to you. You can also use a silicone spatula. It works beautifully.

Uncooked fathead dough

You must use parchment paper. Do not use foil or wax paper. It will stick to it and create a mess. We know!!

Bake for about 5 min, just until the top is starting to get lightly golden brown.

Remove from oven then add pizza sauce and your favorite toppings. Raos, Victoria’s, or Mezzetta are three of the best low-carb sauces to use.

Place back in the oven and bake until your topping are heated and cheese is melted.

Make it your own.
