This recipe is so good, even the grownups go back for seconds!

If you love Fat Head pizza crust (the recipe using almond flour and mozzarella cheese), you’re already well aware that this crust isn’t limited to pizza. It can be made into garlic bread, sandwiches, calzones, and even these low carb Pigs in a Blanket using hot dogs or sausages. SO yummy!

Simply prepare your Fat Head 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!

Hip Tips:
  1. Head on over here for the complete Fat Head Dough ingredient list and recipe instructions.
  2. Fun reader suggestion — Add a small slice of cheddar or American cheese next to your hot dog before you roll it up in the dough for a cheesy pig in a blanket!

    Can the fat head pigs in a blanket be frozen?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Yes! You can freeze the pigs in a blanket. Just be sure separate so they don’t stick together. 🙂

    Hi! I’ve been doing keto for close to 4 weeks now and have tried several “bread” recipes. The fathead dough was the 1st I tried and so far it’s the best.

    • Lina D

      Thanks for sharing! We love fathead too!

  3. Leanne Berns

    Can you put cheese in them?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      I bet you could, however it will change the nutritional value. Hoping that helps!

  4. Betty

    Should the hot dogs be cooked prior to rolling in the fathead?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      No need, they will bake in the oven. Thanks!

    Made these for the first time last night. OMG they are good. The dough is by far the best keto dough I have had yet. I did use a quarter cup coconut flour and 1/2 a cup almond flour and replaced the hot dogs with Johnsville Jalapeno Cheddar Sausage. These will be a weekly staple and the dough will be used for so many things.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Sounds yummy! Thanks for sharing with us, Ben! SO happy to hear how good they turned out!
