One of the things many people miss when transitioning to keto is pizza! The good news, we’ve experimented with many types of non-carby pizza, and can say for sure that this one is amazing. This recipe is credited in the Keto world by Tom McNaughton, author of Fathead Confidential and so has become known as ‘Fathead Pizza” - thanks Tom! Like all fat + protein foods, this pizza is waaaay more filling than regular pizza…you have been warned!
Preheat your oven to 425F. In a glass bowl, mix together the shredded mozzarella and almond meal. Add the cream cheese and microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir, then microwave again on high for 30 seconds. Add the egg, salt and spices and stir through. You should have a good chunk of pizza dough now to place between two large pieces of parchment paper, or between a silicone baking mat and parchment. Roll out using a rolling pin until it’s a nice round flat shape. Remove top parchment and poke holes all over using a fork. Slide the pizza base onto a baking tray, pizza stone or pizza oven tray and bake for 15 minutes. We like to take it out after 10 and flip for the last 5.
Take your pizza base out of the oven and put your favorite pizza sauce or sugar free white sauce all over. Top with your favorite toppings and return to the oven for a final few minutes – just enough to melt the cheeses, heat up the meats etc.
Slice and serve. Delicious!
