Fathead Pizza

Crust:

1Β½ cups (6 oz.) mozzarella cheese, shredded

2 tbsp cream cheese

ΒΎ cup (3 oz.) almond flour

1 tsp white wine vinegar

1 egg

Β½ tsp salt

olive oil, to grease your hands

Topping:

8 oz. fresh Italian sausage

1 tbsp butter

Β½ cup unsweetened tomato sauce

Β½ tsp dried oregano

1Β½ cups (6 oz.) mozzarella cheese, shredded

Directions:

1️⃣  Preheat the oven to 400Β°F (200Β°C).
2️⃣  Heat mozzarella and cream cheese in a non-stick pan on medium heat or in a bowl in the microwave oven. Stir until they melt together. Add the other ingredients and mix well. Tip: use a hand mixer with dough hooks.
3️⃣  Moisten your hands with olive oil and flatten the dough on parchment paper, making a circle about 8″ (20 cm) in diameter. You can also use a rolling pin to flatten the dough between two sheets of parchment paper.
4️⃣  Remove the top parchment sheet (if used). Prick the crust with a fork (all over) and bake in the oven for 10–15 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven.
5️⃣  While the crust is baking, sautΓ©e the ground sausage meat in olive oil or butter.
6️⃣  Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce on the crust. Top the pizza with meat and plenty of cheese. Bake for 10–15 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
7️⃣  Sprinkle with oregano and enjoy!

Here we’ve used sausage meat like in the original recipe, but feel free to put whatever you like on it. Instead of sausage, you can use pepperoni, salami, or cooked bacon. If you have any chicken, pork, or beef leftovers in the fridge, they usually make great pizza toppings.

If you don’t want meat and can eat a bit higher carb, we suggest peppers, olives, artichokes or fresh tomatoes and herbs. You can also add different kinds of cheese on tops such as feta cheese, blue cheese, or even brie.

Make extra crusts and store them for 2-3 days in the fridge or in the freezer for up to 2 months. The pizza reheats great in the microwave so if you get leftovers, and you probably will cause this is very rich, enjoy them in the next day’s lunch box.

This dough is so versatile! Use it as a pizza crust like in this recipe or make it into a lovely homemade garlic focaccia β€“ simply drench with garlic butter and bake for another minute or two. Or how about serving some keto bread twists as a snack or appetizer at your next dinner party?
