Keto Fathead Pizza

Pizza Dough

• ⁠1 ½ cups Shredded Mozarella Cheese (168 g) • ⁠2 tbsp Cream Cheese (28 g) • ⁠¾ cup Almond Flour (84 g)

Directions

  1. ⁠Plan ahead for the pizza toppings that you will use. Pre-cook any raw ingredients so that they are ready to go. You’ll have some time to dice veggies while the crust is baking.
  2. ⁠Put your pizza stone or cookie sheet in the oven. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  3. ⁠In a microwave-safe bowl, add in the mozzarella and cream cheese.
  4. ⁠Microwave for 15-30 seconds at a time, and stir with a fork.
  5. ⁠Once you can no longer distinguish the shredded cheese, add in the almond flour. Knead the almond flour into the cheese and make it into a well-blended ball of dough.
  6. ⁠Place your ball of dough on a large piece of parchment paper. Use another piece of parchment paper and a rolling pin to flatten out your dough. I try to get my dough down to about 1/8″ to 1/4″ thick. (Save the second piece of parchment paper, you’ll need it later)
  7. ⁠(Optional) If you want, you can make some stuffed crust by rolling the outside of your dough over onto itself with cheese. Even if you don’t add a mozzarella cheese filling, I still recommend folding the outside over itself slightly to give you a thicker outside crust.
  8. ⁠Sprinkle some garlic salt across the dough. Use a fork to poke holes all around your crust and put in the oven.
  9. ⁠Bake the dough for 8-10 minutes until you get a nice dark brown bottom. Remove from the oven. (This will take some experimentation to find what you like best. For me, light crust = too cheesy flavored, dark crust = tastes like real pizza dough)
  10. ⁠Flip your cooked dough onto the second sheet of parchment paper
  11. ⁠Load your pizza however you like with all of your favorite sauces, cheese, and toppings.
  12. ⁠Bake or broil your pizza for another few minutes until your cheese is melted and starts to brown.
  13. ⁠Enjoy!
