fathead-pizza

This was good. It satisfied my weekly pizza craving without going way over on calories or carbs. It holds up too. I ate it with my hands and not a fork!

I found this on reddit.com/r/ketorecipes

It’s called fathead pizza and the crust recipe is originally from here: http://www.ditchthecarbs.com/2015/04/23/fat-head-pizza/

*Tools/ingredients that you need and not everyone uses daily are baking parchment paper and almond flour. If Kayla is reading this…You need a microwave.

Effort Level: Low amount of effort. You mix you roll. 

Time: 30-45 minutes

Amount: 1 full size thin crust pizza – 8 slices

 

You need this: 

  • 1 & 3/4 cup grated and/or shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 Tbl cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • pinch of salt
  • Other herbs if you want. i.e)Rosemary
  • Pizza sauce of choice
  • Toppings of choice

Do this:

  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. In a medium to large mixing bowl add the cheese, almond flour, and cream cheese.
  3. Roughly mix together and microwave 1 minute.
  4. Stir mixture and microwave another 30 seconds.
  5. Add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.(Dough will be wet and sticky)
  6. Place in-between two pieces of parchment paper and roll into desired size and thickness.
  7.   Remove one piece of parchment and slide the crust, still on the parchment paper, onto a pizza pan.
  8. Bake at 425F for 10-15 minutes or until browned.
  9. Remove and flip over on the parchment paper.
  10. Bake other side at 425F for another 5 minutes or until that side is also browned.
  11. Remove and add desired and pre-cooked toppings.
  12. Cook until cheese is completely melted and toppings are hot.
