Ingredients

FOR THE FATHEAD (KETO) DOUGH

  • 1 1/2 cups part skim shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano (you can also use rosemary, thyme, etc…)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

FOR THE KETO PIZZA MARGHERITA

  • 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup tomato sauce
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cut into 4 slices
  • 4 or more fresh basil leaves
  • grated parmesan cheese for garnish (optional)
  • sprinkle of dried oregano or other seasonings, for garnish (optional)

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F

FOR THE FATHEAD (KETO) DOUGH

  1. Add shredded mozzarella cheese and cream cheese to a non-stick skillet; heat over medium heat and stir until melted.
  2. Remove from heat and let stand 30 seconds.
  3. Stir in almond flour, egg, garlic powder, dried seasonings, salt, and pepper; continue to stir until thoroughly combined.
  4. Transfer the dough to a parchment paper lined surface.
  5. Add another piece of parchment paper over the dough. Take a rolling pin and place over the top parchment paper; start rolling into a circle until the dough is thin and spread out to about 9 inches.
  6. If you do not have a rolling pin, wet the palms of your hands with cooking spray and press out the dough into a thin round.
  7. Remove top parchment paper and slide the dough (with the bottom parchment paper) onto a baking sheet.
  8. Prick dough all over with a fork and pop in the oven for 10 minutes.
  9. If you see any bubbles forming on top of the pizza crust, remove from oven, poke down with a fork, and continue to bake.
  10. When pizza crust is done baking, remove from oven and let stand for a minute.

FOR THE KETO PIZZA MARGHERITA

  1. Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce over the pizza crust and top with mozzarella cheese.
  2. Bake for an additional 7 to 8 minutes, or until cheese is melted and pizza is bubbly.
  3. Remove from oven, top with fresh basil leaves, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and oregano (if using) and serve.
