low carb pigs in a blanket arranged on a plate

This recipe is so good, even the grown-ups go back for seconds!

If you love Fathead 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 keto 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!

Keep these recipe tips in mind when making keto pigs in a blanket:

    • Most hot dogs come pre-cooked and you don’t even need to heat before popping them in the oven. Plus, the ends will crisp up a bit when they’re finished.
    • 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 keto 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. 🙂

  2. Tracy

    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. Ben

    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!

  4. Susiq

    Amazing easy and tasty dough. I will be making this dough again

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh good! Glad you enjoyed this!

  5. Ashley

    Is there a way to premake the dough and refrigerate? Has anyone tried this? I thought about making the dough the night before to prep it while my hotdogs thaw from the freezer.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes that plan should work fine. Store it in a covered container.

  6. Shari Taylor

    I’m wondering if the dough can be shaped into pretzels then baked. I’m missing my hot, soft pretzels

  7. Mary Lee

    Holy Moley! So good! Added jalapeños and a little mozzarella on the inside. Topped them with Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel seasoning. I used larger sausage links so the dough only covered 6. But so delicious! Perfect keto breakfast! Thank you!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      YUM! You’re very welcome, Mary Lee! Glad to hear you enjoyed them!
