Following a low carb diet?

A couple months ago we shared a popular pizza crust recipe using almond flour and mozzarella cheese that yields both a yummy texture and taste. It’s very simple to make using just a few ingredients, and happens to be the best low carb crust I’ve ever tried! Many of my fellow Hip2Save team members are fans as well! It really is a MUST try idea.

I like that this delicious “bread” isn’t limited to pizza, and can be made into garlic bread, sandwiches, calzones, and even these Pigs in a Blanket using hot dogs or sausages. SO yummy!


Simply prepare your “Fathead” Dough using THIS recipe, divide it into 8 sections, and then wrap them around hot dogs or cooked sausages. It’s a fun meal idea that’s both yummy and low carb!

These turned out so TASTY!

Both the taste and texture are fantastic! My kids really love them also. They re-heated nicely as well for leftovers. If you are eating low carb, this is a great option that would likely please your entire family or party!

    Looks yummy! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  2. liz

    I am making this tomorrow for dinner. I made the pizza crust recipe when you posted it and the family loved it!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yay! Thanks for sharing Liz ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  3. n1njamom

    I do something like this at Halloween, but make the dough in strips and wrap around. When they come out, use mustard to make eyes “Mummy Dogs” Kids love them, although they won’t eat “pigs in a blanket.” Go figure!

  4. Andrea

    I LOVE the low carb recipes you share SO much! They are always winners! Can’t wait to try this!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Thanks Andrea! Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Jenn M

    Is there something I can use to substitute for the cream cheese in the dough recipe? I’m allergic.

    • coolrocks

      What cream cheese?

    • Nicole

      You can actually omit the cream cheese in fathead dough. It won’t be as pliable or squishy to work with but it tastes good too, just a little bit different.

  6. Lake girl

    Is the Parmesan cheese that is used in the crust supposed to be shredded or grated? I tried this with shredded Parm and it had an odd texture so just checking.

    • coolrocks

      Never mind I see it now

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Hi there, it’s mozzarella cheese that’s used. Hope that helps ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. Mindy

    One of my family’s favorites!

  8. jac

    Love the fathead pizza dough from ditch the carbs — thanks for sharing this variation. Also recently tried cauliflower pizza crust and it was a huge hit. Thanks for sharing low-carb recipes.

  9. Amanda

    Collin can you share any sweet low carb recipes that you love??? Thank you in advance!!!

  10. Nicole

    Oh thank you! I needed a change up in my diet. I eat Keto and fathead dough and meat are on it! It’s so simple, why haven’t I thought of this?

  11. Shevon

    I love this. Thanks

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      You’re so welcome!

  12. Jennifer Gray

    Love that you posted this – I recently started a low carb diet and am collecting recipes. I had not come across this = thanks for pointing me to the ditchthecarbs website. I am new to all of this!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Excellent!

  13. Melissa

    I really appreciate the low carb recipes!!!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      I’m so glad! Thanks for reading Melissa

  14. Melissa T.

    OMG. My family is new to low carb cooking/eating. I can’t thank you enough for this recipe, My younger son was just diagnosed with diabetes about a month ago. It’s been a challenge to come up with kid friendly, fun, looks and taste good, low carb and still something he wants to eat.

  15. Roxy

    Check out Walmart. They have Nature’s Eats almond flour for $12/2 lbs, the lowest I found yet. I love the brand. I make Paleo brownies, Naan, cobbler, cookies etc.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      That’s a great tip! Thanks Roxy~

  16. Sue

    Can the dough be made up ahead of time, like the day before?

  17. Beth

    I have never heard of Fathead dough where do I get this

  18. Jo

    Allergic to tree nuts! Does anyone have a recipe for pastry without almond flour!

  19. Jessica

    What is the carb count for the dough?

  20. KrissyMurphy

    Oooh! Going on my “to try” list!!!

  21. Faith Perue

    Has anyone tried this with cconut flour and cinnamon & sugar substute? For a sweet treat?

  22. Cpacmac

    Made these last week. They were easy to make and Delicious! A good go to, short on time lunch prep recipe. Thanks for the recipe.

    • Lina D

      Great! Thanks for the feedback!

  23. Tanya Chandler

    Can I substitute almond flour with coconut flour my husband is allergic to almond

  24. Liza M. Shaw

    I followed the recipe to the letter but the dough “melted” over the top of the hot dogs and spread out, gathering around either side of the dogs. I cannot imagine what I did wrong. Still tasted good but definitely not like bagel dogs.
