Description

Everything you need to know to make the best Fathead Pizza Crust! I give all of my tips and tricks for a crispy crust, and I give instructions for almond flour and coconut flour!

Ingredients

  • 1-¾ cup Grated Mozzarella Cheese
  • ¾ cups Almond Flour (see Notes For Alternatives)
  • ½ teaspoons Italian Seasoning
  • Pinch Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Cream Cheese
  • 1  Large Eggs

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400ºF.

In a large glass bowl, mix mozzarella cheese, almond flour, Italian seasoning, and salt. Microwave on high for 1 minute. If not completely melted, melt for 30 seconds more. (See notes for stovetop method.)

Add cream cheese to mozzarella mixture and combine with a spoon. When dough is cool enough to handle, add egg and mix well with hands.

Dump dough out onto a piece of parchment paper. Oil your hands or a rolling pin with olive oil and press the dough into a 10- to 12-inch circle or oblong shape.

Place parchment paper directly on the oven rack with the pizza crust and bake for 10 minutes. Pop any bubbles that form in the crust. Remove the crust from the oven and top with your favorite toppings. Bake for 8–10 minutes more.

Cut into 6-8 slices and serve. 1 fathead pizza crust recipe makes 2 servings.

Nutrition for 1/2 of an almond crust pizza: 619 calories, 50g fat, 18g sat fat, 7g carbs, 5g fiber, 35g protein

Notes:
• Nutrition is for 1/2 of the crust only. Any toppings you add will be extra.
• For a coconut flour crust: use 1/3 cup coconut flour in place of the almond flour and increase the eggs to 2.
• You could also use 3/4 cup crushed pork rinds in place of the almond flour.
• For stovetop instead of microwave, place the glass bowl with mozzarella and flour over a pot of boiling water and stir until melted.
• For individual keto pizza crusts, cut the complete dough in half and shape into 2 individual pizza crusts on the parchment paper. You could use 1 or 2 pieces of parchment.
• For a crispier crust, after pre-baking, flip the crust before adding the toppings.
• To freeze fathead pizza crust, follow directions for pre-baking the crust. Make as many as you need and stack the crusts in the freezer with the parchment paper. Freeze for 1 hour, then place in a large resealable bag or wrap in foil. Freeze for up to 2 months. When ready to use, preheat oven, remove from freezer (no need to thaw), add your favorite toppings, and bake in 400ºF oven for 8–10 minutes.
