Keto Fat Head Pizza Crust Directions
Preheat ovenPreheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Melt the cheesePlace mozzarella in a microwave-safe glass bowl. Microwave for about two minutes. Stir to combine and make sure all of the cheese is melted. You may need to microwave for additional time if all the cheese has not melted. (If you are doubling or tripling this recipe, make sure you double or add on additional microwave time to ensure proper cheese melting.) Remove from microwave and let the mixture cool.
Mix dry ingredientsIn a large separate bowl, mix together the almond flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt and seasonings, if using. Set aside.
Mix egg and cheeseAdd in your egg to the melted mozzarella cheese. Mix until combined.
Mix doughSlowly add the almond flour mixture to the cheese mixture Using an electric mixer or food processor, stir until you have a uniform dough. Don’t be surprised if dough goes flying if you are using the mixer! This can happen, but this is an easy way to combine the mixtures in order to make the best fat head dough. If you don’t have an electric mixer or food processor, I recommend kneading the dough by hand until it comes together. This is a messy and time-consuming process, but the end result is the same - fat head pizza.
Knead pizza doughOnce combined, form a big dough ball. Knead the dough a couple of times on a lightly almond floured surface to ensure the dough is uniform in appearance and all ingredients are fully combined.
Layer between parchmentPlace the ball in between two pieces of parchment paper. You can also just use a silpat mat if you have one of those, but having that top layer of parchment paper keeps the dough from sticking to you and your rolling pin. Plus it allows you to roll out a nice thin pizza crust.
Roll out crustRoll out dough to desired thickness. Remove top parchment layer and place on top of a baking sheet.
Watcha gonna add?Add toppings.
BakeBake in a 400 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is bubbling.
