I love to make fathead dough because it’s so versatile and you’ll be surprised to see that the main ingredient is mozzarella. You can even make sweet keto snacks using this dough.
If you haven’t tried this recipe for low carb pizza crust, let me warn you. This is for serious cheese lovers only. It’s made almost entirely of cheese!
Note: Use a touch more cream cheese in this recipe for moisture. Your dough will be sticky and not necessarily easy to roll out.
REFRIGERATE the dough for about 10 minutes, place a piece of plastic wrap over it and pat or roll it out. Much easier!
If you follow the keto way of eating or just eat low carb, this is a MUST to have in your recipe arsenal.

Can I make the fathead dough with coconut flour?
Substituting the almond flour in this recipe with coconut flour is possible. If you want to make the pizza with a low carb coconut flour dough, you’ll have to add an extra egg and use 1/3 cup coconut flour instead of the almond flour.
