Fathead Pizza

This recipe is all over Pinterest because it’s just that good!
Fathead was a game changer for me.  When I was just getting started with LCHF, even before I met Keto, the first few weeks were hard.  You might know the feeling too–I missed my beloved carbs!  But then I got up the courage to make fathead pizza.  And I knew I had found a way of eating that was going to make me happy.  Low Carb Happy as I call it 🙂
  • Mix 1 3/4 cups grated mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup almond flour together in the food processor.
  • Add 2 Tbls. cream cheese, 1 egg, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp garlic powder and mix together until the dough sticks together in a ball.
  •  Roll out between two pieces of parchment paper to desired shape & size.  Take off the top paper and bake at 350 degrees about 20 minutes til golden.
  • Top with your favorite pizza toppings and bake til cheese is melted & browned.

Some of those pinterest recipes  melt the cheese & cream cheese together before mixing and  bake both sides of the crust.  I haven’t found either of those steps necessary; but if you’re interested, you can find those directions here.

One recipe of the crust will also make 8 mini rounds.  Those can be baked, kept in the fridge, and then toasted for breakfast with lots of butter.

If you want cheeze-it crackers, make the recipe using cheddar cheese.  Once the crust is baked, cut into cracker or chip shapes & fry in coconut oil.fathead-chips

Once you’ve made this a couple of times, it becomes an easy recipe to make.  I can hardly believe that we’ve lost all this weight while still eating good pizza!  If you’re on the low-carb way of eating with us, treat yourself to fathead 🙂
