Fat head dough is all the rage in the keto world! Made predominantly with cheese, it really is the ultimate low carb “bread”. However, there are so many variations on the internet and Pinterest that choosing the right one can be daunting! After all, who wants to risk ruining their pizza?!?

I’ve tried several different methods (coconut flour, cream cheese) for making fat head dough and come up with, what I think, is the best one! I sent this recipe out to my subscribers as a special treat and the feedback has been so great that I knew this one needed it’s own post too! 

 

 

This crust can be used for pizza, cheese sticks, bread sticks, savory pie crust, or whatever your keto heart desires! Tweak the seasoning to fit your dish! It’s the perfect basic low carb “dough”!

This recipe makes enough for 1 medium-ish sized pizza. It can feed my family of 4 (2 adults + 2 kids) without issue. 

 


 

A few notes for easier baking: 

  1. You MUST use parchment paper! Foil, greased cookie sheets, or anything else will not work! Trust me, I’ve learned the hard way!
  2. Mix the flour in well before adding the egg! You don’t want scrambled eggs in your pizza crust. Ew!
  3. Make sure your cheese is very melty and gooey before adding the flour or it won’t mix.
  4. Don’t forget to prick the crust with your fork or you’ll have one giant bubble.
  5. This goes without saying but, the bigger you roll out the dough, the thinner your dough will be!

  • I tried this fat head pizza dough, and oh my word!! It is the best!! I don’t have to try any other low-carb pizza dough recipe. The dough stops here!!! Thank you for all you do in experimenting and getting all the kinks out in your recipes before blogging. Following your directions to the letter is perfect!

    • Yes, many variations use cream cheese but I find that it really doesn’t make the dough any better. In fact, I think cream cheese in fat head dough makes it taste too cheesy. Also, it’s wasted calories to add the cream cheese. Fat head dough is easy to work with if you use my tips in the post! 🙂 Wet hands while you knead it is the easiest trick!
