If there’s a single meal I really miss on the Keto diet it’s PIZZA. I’ve definitely had my moments of weakness where I’ve ordered Dominos delivery, literally pulled all the cheese and pepperoni off the crust, and thrown the rest of the pizza away (Crazy I know, my husband and I jokingly call this a ‘pizza massacre’). But this approach is a waste of food and money.
So fortunately, I’ve since discovered the Keto ‘FatHead’ Pepperoni Pizza. What’s a FatHead Pizza? Fathead pizza is a low carb / keto pizza dough made from 4 simple ingredients: mozzarella, cream cheese, egg, and a low-carb flour (either Almond or Coconut flour are most common). I’ve tried both variations of the flour and personally I can’t warm up to the coconut flavor in pizza, so I prefer the Almond flour version. That said, if you prefer to use Coconut Flour, just substitute 1/3 cup of coconut flour instead of the almond flour.
Before you start, make sure that you have a pizza stone or a cast iron pizza pan. You can also use a regular baking pan, but your crust won’t be as crispy. Below is a picture of the one I use; you can find these on Amazon if you don’t already have one.
Also make sure that when you choose a pizza sauce, you select one with no added sugars like this one here. And as always with Keto, make sure you purchase the full-fat mozzarella, not a low-fat or no-fat version.
If you do this right, your pizza will look, taste, and have similar texture as the real deal. You’ll find the Fathead dough pizza extremely filling – I’ve never been able to eat more than a couple small slices. And you’ll have an easy Keto dinner that will curb your pizza cravings. Hope you enjoy!
