One of the most basic keto recipes you should learn how to make is Fathead Dough. In fact, just hearing the words Fat Head Pizza probably triggers mild drooling and hunger pangs in some people. It’s that good! Why is this keto pizza crust so good? Well… because it is made up of mostly fat – cheese to be precise. The combination of mozzarella and almond flour yield a dense, crispy pizza crust packed full of flavor.

There are many variations of fathead dough out there, but this one is my favorite probably because it resembles a true bread dough the most. I found it from @Keto.copy (who I follow on instagram). You can visit her website here:

Fathead pizza dough doesn’t take very long to prepare. The ingredient list is fairly short and you can be eating keto pizza in no time. It’s a perfect quick keto pizza option for busy weeknights or weekend movie nights. One of our family traditions is to make pizzas and watch videos on Friday nights with the boys. Each kid gets to add their own toppings to their own mini fat head pizza.

Besides pizza crust, the keto dough is actually a universal pastry dough in the keto community. We have used it as the breading for bagel dogs, breadsticks, hamburger buns, biscuits, cinnamon rolls, and crackers. I’m sure you could come up with a Fat Head Raspberry Strudel if you desired. Just be sure to omit the garlic powder and italian seasonings.

Because we love pizza and use the fat head dough for other low carb foods, we always double, triple….even quadruple the batch when we make it. The dough freezes nicely in a ball or you can roll in out into a thin crust first, flash freeze it, then wrap with plastic wrap for long term freezer storage.

Now that it’s easy to have a keto dough recipe at your disposal, there’s no excuse not to have pizza night at least once or twice a week on the ketogenic diet!

10 oz mozzarella cheese
5 oz almond flour
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking powder

Makes enough for one large keto pizza with 8 slices. If you are making keto pizza, roll the dough out between two pieces of parchment paper until the dough is 1/4 inch thick. Poke holes in the dough with a fork. Precook in the oven at 400 degrees for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and add toppings. Cook again in the oven for 5-8 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
