Fathead Pizza Dough Recipe (Keto pizza crust recipe)

  • 1 ½ cups plus ⅔ cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided 
  • 2 ounces cream cheese 
  • 1 slightly beaten egg
  • ¾ cup almond flour (super fine)
  • ¼ cup low carb pizza sauce
  • Toppings of choice: pepperoni, olives, green bell peppers, mushrooms, fully cooked sausage, etc.

Optional – add some Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, etc to the dough if you want some extra flavors. You can also brush the crust with a little olive oil.

How to make the Keto Fathead Pizza

Preheat the oven to 400F degrees. Grab a pizza pan and cover it with a piece of parchment paper and set aside.

 

 

Pour 1 ½ cups of the shredded mozzarella cheese into a large microwave-safe bowl along with the cream cheese. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir well, then continue to microwave in 15 second increments, stirring between each increment, until the cheeses are completely melted. Stir the melted cheese until smooth.

 

 

Quickly stir in the egg and almond flour. Work the ball of dough in the bowl with clean, oiled hands until all ingredients are very well incorporated and it forms a ball. The dough will be very sticky.

 

 

Grab your large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Place the dough in the center and use your hands or a rolling pin to press it into a circle, approximately 10 inches across.

Bake the pizza crust in a preheated oven at 400F for 8 minutes, or until it just begins to look golden brown slightly in spots. The crust may puff up while baking. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool for 5 minutes.

 

 

Poke the pizza crust a few times with a fork to prevent it from puffing up while baking with the toppings. Spread the pizza sauce evenly over the cooked pizza crust, leaving a small border of crust around the edges without the sauce.

Sprinkle ⅓ cup of the shredded mozzarella cheese over the pizza sauce. Top with the pizza toppings of your choice.

Cut into 6 slices and serve hot.  Total baking time is about 16-20 minutes.

Store leftovers in an airtight container and eat within 2 days.
