Cheese: 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, fresh mozzarella, parmesan, feta, gouda, blue cheeses, etc..
Meats: Chose from12 slices pepperoni, chicken, beef, ham, turkey, bacon.
Start by prepping all the ingredients. Shred the mozzarella cheese, sift the almond flour and crack the egg in a small bowl.
Preheat the oven to 425F / 220C.
In a microwave safe bowl add the shredded low moisture mozzarella cheese, almond flour, and cream cheese and stir until combined.
Microwave the cheese mixture for about 90-120 seconds, stirring halfway.
Remove from the microwave and stir in the beaten egg using a spatula or a wooden spoon.
Oil your hands and knead the fathead dough into a ball.
Roll the dough between two sheets of parchment paper to 1/4" or 1/3" thickness. Use a fork to poke holes through the pizza crust.
Bake for 6-8 minutes or until the crust looks golden.
Place the baking sheet on a cooling rack and add the desired toppings. I used marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni slices.
10. Bake for a few more minutes until the cheese on top beautifully melts.
11. Cut the pizza into four or six slices and enjoy!
If you want to make fathead dough with coconut flour, replace the almond flour with 1/3 cup coconut flour and follow the same instructions.To melt the cheese mixture without a microwave, use a double boiler stirring frequently.
