Thanks to this fathead dough recipe, I love pizza night again!
I know what you’re thinking – keto pizza dough made out of mozzarella cheese and almond flour?!
This keto fathead pizza dough recipe is super simple to make with just a few ingredients. Plus, the texture is not only chewy like normal pizza dough, but it’s also sturdy enough to pick up a piece to eat! 🍕
Fathead dough is a very popular low-carb recipe idea and has been a long-time favorite among several of my fellow Hip2Keto sidekicks!
Hip tips when making fathead dough for pizza:
- I’ve read that you can substitute 1/4 cup of coconut flour instead of almond flour as an option for those with nut allergies, though this could result in a slightly drier dough.
- Instead of making 1 large pizza, you can divide the dough and make smaller, personalized pizzas.
- This fathead dough also makes delicious garlic bread, as well as a bread substitute for other recipes!
- If adding veggies to your pizza, I suggest dicing bell peppers and mushrooms and sauté them first on the stove before topping the pizza (but just personal preference). Note that the nutrition info is just for the crust and not the toppings as they vary.
- This fathead dough can also be refrigerated or frozen if you’d like to prep a few balls of dough ahead of time to have them available when you’re ready to bake. Be sure to let the dough thaw completely before rolling out and/or baking.
Collin whipped this pizza up a while back on Facebook alongside Stetson, and it’s pretty clear how tasty it can be. She even shared some great tips to make it perfect!
Collin’s fathead pizza dough recipe tips:
- Be sure to add seasonings (like garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and salt) to the crust to add a burst of additional pizza flavor.
- Use either a silicone baking mat or parchment paper (and add a touch of oil) to make sure the crust doesn’t stick to your pan.
- Flatten out the dough on parchment paper, then put a lightly oiled piece of parchment paper over the top of the dough and press down with your hands versus a rolling pin. You can totally use a rolling pin as Lina does, however, I find using my hands helps to get the crust nice and thin which makes for a crispier crust.
- Cook the crust to the point where it’s well done (not burnt, but brown in spots) to make sure the base will be firm enough to support your favorite toppings.
- Be sure to let the pizza rest before eating. If you like a pizza that you can pick up with your hands, then keep in mind that letting it rest will create a much firmer crust.
