How to Make Keto Pizza Crust?

This fathead dough for the pizza crust is extremely easy to make, and you’ll need very common ingredients such as almond flour or coconut flour, egg, mozzarella cheese, and cream cheese. All these ingredients mixed up together make a dough that’s not very sticky (you can add some extra almond flour) and easy to handle.

You can use pre-shredded mozzarella because it’s convenient and faster or you can shred it at home. Combine the shredded cheese, almond flour, cream cheese, and microwave for about 90 seconds stirring halfway through. The cheese should look slightly melted.

It’s time to add the egg, herbs and baking powder (optional). Mix until all the ingredients are totally incorporated.

If the dough looks too sticky, add another tablespoon of almond flour or let the fathead chill for a few minutes.

The next step is to roll out the dough, and from my experience, it’s best to oil your hands and roll it between to sheets parchment paper. Bake the dough for 6-8 minutes in the preheated oven. Meanwhile, prepare the toppings.
