Fathead Pizza Recipe With Fathead Pizza Crust Instructions

Fathead Pizza Crust

You've heard that fathead pizza is good for friends and family and with low carbs, well suited for a keto diet. You will need to be careful carb-wise with this recipe. Each slice is 6.6 g carbs, and that doesn't include any toppings.

The per slice carb count can jump up to 10 g or so when you add the toppings.

Keep that in mind when you eat, since you want to keep your net carbs below 20 g per day.

Fathead Pizza Dough Recipe

To make this fathead dough, follow the simple 4 ingredient recipe below. Make sure the pizza dough is rolled to the thickness you desire. Don't forget to poke holes in the dough with a fork to let the almond flour dough rise during baking.

Use a piece of parchment paper to keep the pizza dough from sticking to the baking sheet. The sheet of parchment is optional – you can butter a cookie tray and get the same result. If you have a pizza pan, even better. A pizza stone is best since it holds the heat perfectly.

You can use a rolling pin to roll out the pizza dough perfectly. If you don't have one, just use your hands to roll the dough.

Make the flathead dough as flat as you can – no one cares in the end.

For the shredded mozzarella cheese, if you can find well shredded cheese, it will be easier to mix the pizza dough. Sometimes putting it into the microwave a few times for 20-40 seconds will help.

It melts the cheese and makes the dough mixing a little easier.

This is a great recipe for non-keto partners and friends. It tastes every bit as good as fresh handmade pizza!

Instead of tomato sauce, you can add low cal marinara pizza sauce to keep the carbs low (recipe below).

Fathead Pizza Crust Recipe

Be sure when you bake the crust for 8 minutes that it becomes firm to the touch and perhaps slightly browned.

You will bake for an additional 8 minutes in the over after you add the toppings.
