Fat Head Pizza Crust Recipe (Finally a Low Carb Pizza I LOVE!)

"Fat Head" Low-Carb Pizza Crust

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup almond meal/flour
  • 1 and 3/4 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Desired pizza toppings (tomato paste or sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, bell peppers, etc.)

Directions

1

Combine almond flour and mozzarella cheese in a microwave safe bowl. Add in cream cheese and cook for one minute.  Stir, and cook for additional 30 seconds in microwave.


 

2

Mix in egg, salt, and Italian seasoning, and stir.


 

3

Shape dough into a ball and place between two pieces of parchment paper.


 

4

Use a rolling pin on top of parchment paper to roll dough in a circular shape. (Mine was more of an oval.)


 

5

Remove the top parchment paper and slide dough onto a baking sheet or pizza stone. Bake at 425 degrees in the oven for 12-14 minutes until slightly browned.


 

6

Add any desired pizza toppings and sauce you’d like to the top of the crust. (Keep in mind, if using raw meat you’d want to cook it first before putting on pizza.) Continue cooking in oven for 5 minutes until cheese melts.

Love pizza, but not the carbs?!🍕

You’ve gotta try making Fat Head pizza dough out of cheese and almond flour! It tastes great, is keto-friendly, low carb, gluten-free, and happens to be super simple method using just a few main ingredients. Plus, I like that the texture is chewy like normal pizza dough, and sturdy enough to pick up a piece to eat!

Fat Head Pizza is a very popular low-carb recipe idea online and also happens to be a favorite among several of my fellow Hip2save sidekicks, so I was excited to try it out!

Additional Notes

Recipe from DitchtheCarbs.com


Things to Consider:

  • I diced bell peppers and mushrooms and sauteed them first on the stove before topping my pizza, but that’s just personal preference.
  • I’ve read that you can substitute 1/4 cup of coconut flour instead of almond flour, but haven’t tried it yet.
  • Next time I may try flipping the Fat Head pizza crust over half way through baking for a more evenly cooked crust.
  • You can divide pastry and make smaller personalized pizzas!
  • This pastry would make delicious “garlic bread” and a bread substitute for various other recipes!

No joke ~ this pizza is YUMMY! We liked the taste and texture better than cauliflower pizza!

  2. Amy

    Thank you so much for these keto recipe ideas! I already loved you guys for all of your hard work bringing us these awesome coupon deals… but now you’ve just completely won me over <3 thank you Hip 2 Save crew… you guys rock!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Aw thanks for that sweet comment Amy!

  3. Tina

    New to keto, but need to ask is there a substitute for almond flour… my daughter is allergic to almonds.. thank you in advance for any and all help.
    Sincerely, Tina

    • jody

      you could try it with coconut flour

  4. Debra

    I like this crust and easy to make

  5. Christina

    I made this tonight and was BLOWN away that I was actually eating PIZZA. It tastes amazing and was WAY more simple than I thought it would be. Great recipe! With the brands I have for the ingredients, I got 4.2 net carbs for a total of 8 slices.

    • Cheyenne Kennedy

      How many carbs for the whole pizza? If I just do low carb sauce and cheese and pepperoni? Would it be less than stated for this recipe?

  6. lj

    The pizza tasted so good! It tasted like a regular pizza. My sisters aren’t keto and they bought pizza from pizza time and I’m keto so I couldn’t have it so I looked up a keto friendly low-carb resolution and found this and made it and it was just like having regular pizza ecept guilt free and even more delicious and it only took about fifteen minutes.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Perfect ! So happy it worked out 🙄

  7. Cathy herman

    When I tried to roll out the dough it stuck to the parchment paper. So I used my silicone baking mat to roll it out and it worked great

  8. Magda

    So good 😋

  9. Connie B

    It is delicious! Great recipe, I would serve this to non Keto eaters! I sauted fresh mushrooms and onions …delish! Thanks for the great recipe!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Perfect! Thanks for letting know about your success!

  10. Donna Daniel

    Thought this would be a poor substitute, boy was I pleasantly surprised. I put green pepper, onion, pepperoni, bacon, sauce, and more cheese. Divided the dough in half but was still filling enough that I shared with my husband. He declared it delicious. I’ll admit I’m a lot more picky than he is, but I really liked it too. I’m going to use the other half of dough to make a “bun” for my Saturday night hamburger. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

  11. LISA

    I was SO excited to make this!!!! But my dough was so wet…had to add extra flower…ugh…followed the recipe exactly…Anyone else has this issue????

    • Patty cakes

      After adding in the egg, yes. I ended up taking it out and kneading it with my hands. This takes a minute but it will start to feel like a sticky dough. I’m trying it now as I’m typing (its in the oven) I’m still pretty skeptical on how its going to turn out. Wish me luck!

  12. shawanna p

    do i need almond flour and almond meal. what about flax meal

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You can use almond meal or almond flour. Hope that helps!

  13. Bianca Salinas

    I am having so much trouble with this recipe. It’s just way too sticky to roll out… i followed the recipe exactly. Not sure what im doing wrong. I’ve even added some coconut flour to get it to dry up but when i put it in the parchment paper it just sticks to both sides and splits. When i try rolling it, it sticks to the roller…

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ya it can be sticky – you have to keep stirring and sometimes putting it in the fridge can help dry it out.

    • Joan R Edwards

      I just put everything into my food processor…..don’t microwave…..add a little more almond flour if too sticky….and flour on parchment paper to roll it out!! Perfect every time!

      • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        Thanks Joan! Great tips!

  14. Colleen

    Hey! My family and I just love this keto pizza crust. I was wondering if I can make the crust ahead of time (only by a day) and then bake again with the toppings?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes keep it in the fridge covered until ready to roll out and cook.

  15. Angel page

    Do you think it would turn out ok if I replaced the cream cheese with thick plain Greek yogurt ?

    • Jenny

      I would give that a try! I’m sure it’ll work fine. I’ve made this without the cream cheese all together.

  16. Jenny

    I love this recipe! I use golden flaxseed meal in place of the almond flour and it comes out great!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh that’s a great tip! Thanks Jenny!

  17. Nila

    can you teach me how to cook all of them? hihi
