Fasting Lane Favorite: Fat Head Pizza

IMG_20181104_150636 (1).jpg

Some things we miss from our carb-o days, and some we don’t. Pizza used to be one of those things, but thanks to Fat Head Pizza, we can satisfy all our cravings and still eat keto.

We don’t know much about Fat Head dough - where it came from, who invented it, etc. etc. But we can tell you one thing: it is extremely delicious. Fat Head dough is a dough made with a base of almond flour and cheese. We’ve used it for pizza, bagels and even cinnamon rolls.

It’s rich; it’s incredible; it’s keto. There are several ways to make this, but here is Fat Head Pizza, Fasting Lane style.


  • 1 and 1/3 c low moisture mozzarella cheese

  • 1/2 cup almond meal/flour + 2 tablespoons

  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened

  • 1 egg

  • Salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning


  1. Combine almond flour and mozzarella in microwave safe bowl; mix well. Add cream cheese.

  2. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes, depending on the power of your microwave.

  3. Remove, stir, and place back in microwave in :30-:60

  4. Repeat until melted.

  5. Mix in egg, salt and seasonings to dough

  6. Place dough between two pieces of parchment paper in a big ball

  7. Use a rolling pin to flatten out the dough on top of the parchment paper, continue until a pizza shape occurs. If your dough becomes hard to work with, microwave in :10 increments - be careful not to cook the egg!

  8. Poke the crust with a fork all over

  9. Slide the parchment paper on a cookie sheet, pizza tray, etc. and bake at 425 for 10-15 minutes, or until brown.

  10. Once the top has browned, flip pizza over and continue to cook. This ensures a crispy and consistent crust.

  11. Remove from oven, add toppings

  12. Cook for 5 more minutes to melt cheese

Necessary Kitchen Gadgets

  1. Parchment paper

  2. Pizza tray for oven

  3. Pizza cutter

  4. Rolling pin (Something my grandmother taught me: Rolling pins are never to be washed, it’s kinda like cast iron - it keeps it’s flavor. To clean it off, wipe with down with a wet paper towel.)
