Fathead Crust Pizza

Recommended Posts

Love this breadless crust (low carb) pizza.

 

I am a pizza-holic and since I gave up bread 2 1/2 years ago I've been searching for a low-carb - no bread pizza crust.  Well, I finally tried Fathead Crust pizza and it is so close to bread in r=taste and texture it is a no brainer for me - I am so excited!

 

And, the Big Green Egg added enhanced the taste as well!

Fat Head Pizza - The Holy Grail
Fat Head pizza is the NUMBER ONE recipe for the entire site. If you only ever try one low-carb recipe, this is it. It has won over many traditional pizza lovers who are never going back. See the conversion below to see how to make these using almond flour or coconut flour.

 Course Coconut Flour Recipes, Dinner, Lunch, Lunch box
 Prep Time 10 minutes
 Cook Time 20 minutes
 Total Time 30 minutes
 Servings 
6
 slices
 Calories 203 kcal
Ingredients
170 g pre shredded/grated cheese mozzarella is the best or Edam/mild cheese
85 g almond meal/flour
2 tbsp cream cheese
1 egg
pinch salt to taste
½ tsp dried rosemary/ garlic or other flavourings optional
your choice of toppings such as pepperoni peppers, cherry tomatoes, olives, ground/mince beef, mushrooms, herbs etc

 

Instructions
Mix the shredded/grated cheese and almond flour/meal in a microwaveable bowl. Add the cream cheese. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute.
Stir then microwave on HIGH for another 30 seconds.
Add the egg, salt, rosemary and any other flavourings, mix gently.
Place in between 2 pieces of baking parchment/paper and roll into a circular pizza shape (see photos above). Remove the top baking paper/parchment. If the mixture hardens and becomes difficult to work with, pop it back in the microwave for 10-20 seconds to soften again but not too long or you will cook the egg.
Make fork holes all over the pizza base to ensure it cooks evenly.
Slide the baking paper/parchment with the pizza base, on a baking tray (cookie tray) or pizza stone, and bake at 220C/425F for 12-15 minutes, or until brown.
To make the base really crispy and sturdy, flip the pizza over (onto baking paper/parchment) once the top has browned.
Once cooked, remove from the oven and add all the toppings you like. Make sure any meat is already cooked as this time it goes back into the oven just to heat up the toppings and melt the cheese. Bake again at 220C/425F for 5 minutes.
Recipe Notes
Fat Head pastry can also be made by replacing the almond meal/flour with 1/4 cup (4 tbsp) coconut flour
