Guys, you are going to love this pizza crust. Fat Head Pizza crust is 4 simple ingredients all of which are low carb. They are eggs, cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, and almond flour. Almond flour is my favorite low carb flour to work with because I like the nutty flavor it has. It’s kind of expensive, but well worth it in my opinion. I wish they had bigger bags of almond flour at the grocery store. All I can find are small ones.  The first time I tried Fat Head Pizza crust,  I was pretty impressed. It beats any veggie pizza crust out there!

Can Fat Head Pizza Dough Be Frozen?

Cook several crusts ahead of time and freeze them. Do not add sauce or toppings. Then stack them in the freezer with parchment paper between the crusts. Pull one out whenever you want to use them and add the toppings.

Can you use different types of flour?

Yes, you can! Use 1/3 cup of coconut flour instead of almond flour.

You can make so many different things with this Fat Head Pizza Crust. Pizza rolls, crackers, garlic bread, you name it!

The dough is kind of sticky to work. I like to use parchment paper when rolling the dough out. I’ll put a layer of parchment paper over the dough and then use a rolling pin to spread out the dough. Makes life much easier!

Fat Head Pizza Crust

  • Author: Jenna


  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons of cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 egg
  • garlic powder, onion powder, and mixed herbs for seasoning *see notes


  1. Put Mozzarella and cream cheese in a medium bowl
  2. Microwave for 1 min, stir and then another 30 sec, stir
  3. Stir in egg and almond flour
  4. Wet hands and spread “dough” thin on parchment paper. It should spread evenly with dough-like consistency.
  5. Poke rows of holes with a fork to avoid bubbles.
  6. Put in 425-degree oven
  7. After 8 minutes check the crust and poke holes if there are bubbles.
  8. Add desired pizza toppings.
  9. Continue cooking for a total of 12 to 14 minutes or until slightly brown and golden.


Divide into 8 equal slices serving size is 1 slice.

*Adding extra seasonings is optional. I’d suggest making the dough plain first. You can use equal parts of garlic and onion powder.

    Love this recipe. Had absolutely no problems with sticking. I made the full recipe but put half in freezer for another day as I am just one. It made just the perfect size pizza for me. Thank you so very much.

  2. Molls Says:

    Can you make the “dough” ahead of time and freeze it to use later? If so, how long would you freeze it?

  3. Sheri Says:

    I found large bags of almond flour at Costco the other day

  4. Jenna Says:

    Did you buy 10 of them? 🙂

  5. Lisa Says:

    I made this receipt and it was delicious. I had to cook the crust longer than listed and did not put in fridge first. I can see shaping this in a rectangle and using it as a flatbread for low carb sandwich. Highly recommend this recipe.

  6. Roslyn Says:

    This recipe is to die for. I put extra seasonings in the dough and had cheese burger with mushrooms pizza!!!

  7. Amber Says:

    Love this recipe. So easy.

  13. Marcelle Conte Says:

    I would love to try this recipe, excep I need to substitute for almond flour due to allergies. Suggestions, and amount to use for the substitutio?

  14. Martina Says:

    This recipe is the closest to actual pizza!!! So good! Thank you!!!

  15. Jenna Says:

    I would research different flours you can use if you are allergic to almonds. I haven’t used many other low carb flours besides this one.

  16. Alicia Says:

    Unfortunately I wasn’t able to eat it. It stuck to the paper Horribly. Can’t peel it off of the parchment.

  17. Dnice Says:

    I loved this recipe. It makes it possible to continue my low carb lifestyle.

  18. Fitlum Says:

    It’s super duper quick to make, and the in the time it would take to get it warmed back to a workable temperature you could have made a fresh batch of dough. That’s one thing I love about this dough is how quick it is from the idea of making it to oven.


  19. Kellie Says:

    I’ve made this recipe NUMEROUS times and love it! So quick and easy and ever so tasty! I’ve tried different toppings and it never fails me!
    Thank you!!

  20. Amanda Says:

    What size pan are you putting this in?

  21. Amy S. Says:

    We made two of these pizzas tonight! They turned out delicious. I didn’t have almond flour on hand. I used the gluten free flour I had. My daughter has celiac and these were like eating pizza from a restaurant. Thanks for the greatness recipe!!

  22. Zoli Says:

    Can the dough be frozen?

  23. Jenna Says:

    I updated the post with instructions on how to freeze the crust.

  24. Brittany Says:

    I really enjoyed this recipe thanks for sharing

  25. Busy mom of 5 Says:

    I spread this on my pampered chef pizza stone in the round shape I was looking for then put my wax paper over it and rolled it out directly on the stone. I didn’t make a pizza I cooked it for 13 minutes with no toppings. I then spread Kerry gold on it after it came out of the oven and used my McCorrmick sea salt & garlic grinder to sprinkle garlic salt all over it. I sliced it in strips then in half. I told my kids it was garlic bread and they devoured it!

    I’m excited to try this as a pizza crust I just wanted to see if I liked the flavor/consistency after I cooked it before deciding to make pizza. I wish I could share a picture!

  26. Jenny J. Says:

    I highly recommend this recipe. I made it tonight and it was so easy and SOOOOO GOOD!!. I used olive oil instead of pizza sauce, Turkey pepperoni, red, yellow and green peppers and mozzarella.

  27. Fran Batesole Says:

    Excellent! No problems with sticking, but used too much sauce and got a bit soggy in areas. Closest to regular crust. I heard you could use coconut flour also for those allergic to tree nuts. See internet.
