Fat Head Pizza Crust - this is going to be your new favorite way to make low carb pizza crust! No more vegetables like cauliflower or broccoli!
Guys, you are going to love this pizza crust. Fat Head Pizza crust is 4 simple ingredients all of which are low carb. The crust ingredients 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 was pretty impressed. It beats any veggie pizza crust out there and I am not a fan of cauliflower. 🙂

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 ⅓ cup of coconut flour instead of almond flour.
What Can You Make with Fat Head Dough?
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!

Yes you can double it. Pretty easy to figure that out.
No you don't need to adjust cooking time.
Can this recipe be doubled ? Should I increase the cooking time?
I love this! My dad not question is that I baked it on the parchment paper. I had a hard time getting it off the paper once it was baked. The edges were perfect, but the inner section was still a little gooey. Did I not bake it long enough? Thoughts? I can’t wait to try it again!
So good! Since using this recipe quite a bit now I use it to make crackers for Crack Chicken (just made today yum!), pizza crust, to make little hot pockets with different ingredients Yum! Because it is so easy and I usually have these products on hand it is definitely a go to when I need something to eat quick. Thank you for this awesome recipe and taking the time to share it, I do appreciate it. Btw's if you're getting 4.9g a slice you are not using very Keto friendly products. It took me a minute to figure out not all shredded cheese unless organic and most cream cheeses have higher carb contents. That's why label checking and comparing is so important and should not be taken out on bloggers trying to help us be healthier and making my life easier by posting simple recipes. I suggest more research and label reading CONNIE SAYS.
Love it! I forgot the egg and it STILL was awesome! I added turkey pepperoni and I crumbled up precook sausage! Ohhh my!!!!
Hi there! This was a hit in my house, thank you so much. I did add a tsp of baking powder, doubled the recipe, and used for calzones. Fantastic!
I have tried so many low carb pizza crust recipes, and have never felt satisfied. This recipe is so simple and so good. It is the closest I have had to a real pizza crust in 2 years since I went low carb. Thank you.
Hi Connie, I just recalculated the nutrition info AGAIN and got 2 carbs total. If you used more than the amount of mozzarella cheese listed in the ingredients it will be more carbs. Nutrition info will vary depending on what brands you use. Thanks.
I know you're not a nutritionist but PLEASE correct the "total carb" information here. It's more like 4.9g total carbs per slice. 2g is a huge deficit.
