Looking for a Keto friendly, low carb pizza dough? Well Fathead dough is the delicious answer!
Whether you spell it Fathead or Fat Head, the dough is pretty much the same no matter who’s recipe you follow. However I’ve come up with a versatile Fathead Dough Recipe for those who prefer coconut flour over almond flour and visa-versa, as well as thick and thin crust pizza!
This dough is very easy to make with just 4-5 ingredients. You are gonna love the simplicity.
The dough just takes a few minutes to mix and press out on a pizza pan or baking sheet. Make sure you use parchment paper if your pan or baking sheet isn’t non-stick. I have brand new baking pans so my crust slides right off the pan for me when it’s time to slice it.
I just use my fingers to spread and push the dough out on my pan but you can also roll it out between 2 sheets of parchment paper. Whatever floats your boat.
If you are using coconut flour you will want to use 2 eggs because coconut flour is so dry and if you are using almond flour one egg will do.
Make sure the eggs are well mixed and that the cheese isn’t bubbling hot or they may scramble a little. Then you have a breakfast pizza, LOL!
Also don’t forget that you are baking the crust first then adding your toppings so don’t let your crust get too brown before adding the toppings. You only need to put it back in the oven for a few minutes to heat the toppings and melt the cheese. I always turn the broiler on for a minute or two at the end to get it to the golden brown yumminess I love.
Note: Toppings should be precooked not raw as they only go back into the oven just long enough to get hot and melty.
So here’s how you make this Fathead euphoria…
