If you’re new to the low carb world, you maybe haven’t heard of fathead pizza. It is the BEST pizza crust that I’ve tried and I’ve done them all. The almond flour crusts. The cauliflower crusts. I’ve even done crustless pizza.

This is THE ONE.

My entire family prefers this crust over any regular pizza crust – yes, even the kind with actual wheat flour and yeast.

I love the texture this low carb pizza crust provides.  It’s a bit chewy, but also has some crunch. It holds up just like regular pizza dough – you won’t need a fork for this one.

No one would ever guess it was low carb and gluten free!

I have rolled the dough up to make wraps as well and it works fabulously.

Just wait til you see how to make this fathead pizza dough. I also used this dough to make my spicy ranch crackers!

The name and original recipe appears to come from a documentary about food and healthy eating. I’ve made a few changes here and there to suit my tastes and I’m reprinting it here for you to try!

How to make fathead pizza dough:

This low carb pizza crust starts off with cream cheese and grated mozzarella.

You’ll pop those in a microwave safe bowl and heat until melted. Stir the cheese together and then crack in an egg and stir in some almond flour.

I season my crust with a little Italian seasoning to give it more of a traditional crust vibe, but you can skip this if you’d like.

This mixture will be a bit sticky, so pop it between two sheets of parchment paper and roll it out to form a pizza crust.

Line your baking pan with parchment (do not skip this step!) and place your dough on top. This will bake in about 10 minutes.

BLT Pizza:

It’s summer time and I need a good BLT in my life.

BLT pizza is the perfect answer to your summer time low carb dinners! You’re going to love this pizza as much as we do!

Let the fathead pizza crust cool and then smear on some mayonnaise. The more the better, if you ask me. 😉

Next, top your crust with freshly chopped lettuce, crispy fried bacon, and chopped tomatoes. I throw in some green onions too, but these are totally optional.

Slice your pizza into 6 pieces and dig in!

I LOVE the way fathead dough tastes, but I also love how filling it is. Because it’s made with ingredients like cheese and almond flour, it really does fill you up and keep you full, unlike a traditional crust loaded with carbs.

    The pizza is fantastic, really enjoyed it but I think the calorie count is wrong. The mozzarella is 640c;The Cream cheese is 100; almond flour 480; Egg 70; Mayo 360; Bacon 420 and not even counting the seasoning, tomato, lettuce, or onion equals 2,070 /6 = 345 calories a slice.

      Hi John – you’re right. It was off! I used to use My Fitness Pal to calculate nutrition information and it’s so easy to get wrong amounts using that site. My recipe card now calculates it automatically, so while I still can’t guarantee it’s 100% accurate, it’s much more likely to be correct. I’ve updated it now. Thanks!

  2. Love this crust! I use it for all sorts of things. Makes a great bread for philly cheese steaks. Garlic cheese sticks dipped in sauce. My next experiment will be this crust for meatball subs! Thank you so much..

  3. Connie Fischer

    Sounds amazing.
    I think sometimes I would be happy with the crust and some butter.

  4. Does this work if you don’t have a microwave? I have heated the cream cheese and mozzerella and then combined it with the dry ingredients. Worked somewhat well.

  5. After agonizing moments choosing what to make tonight (so much to choose from, isn’t that great!) I picked your BLT pizza (it hit all the must haves tonight)! The whole family has only one regret… why didn’t I make two!?! Omg goodness!!! Plenty of bacon leftover for another one VERY soon. Thank you!

  6. I made this recipe just as you have placed it for all of us to enjoy. Yummy! Move over classic crust!
    Can you give me a suggestion to replace the almond flour as tasty as it is. My grandson is alerting to all nuts. I thank you for your suggestions.

    1. Karly Campbell

      I haven’t made this with anything other than almond flour, but if you do a quick google search for ‘fathead dough with coconut flour’ you should come up with a good recipe! 🙂

  7. This is really good. My whole family loves it. I even use this crust to make regular pizza. My family thinks it’s great.

  8. If making regular. Pizza with this crust would you double bake it or just everything on it then bake it all together?

    1. Karly Campbell

      I would bake for about 10 minutes and then add the other toppings and return to the oven. 🙂

  9. Nina Hogan

    Can’t wait to try! So I can eat this whole pizza by myself and it will only be 3 net carb?!

    1. Karly Campbell

      I don’t think the lettuce would hold up well at all. The crust would likely be fine, though.

    1. This was delicious,ive tried other Fat head recipes but this one is the bomb! Thank you
