    Slowly 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.

    Once 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.

Besides the pulled pork, the other star to this keto pizza is the homemade low carb BBQ sauce. This sauce is sweet and tangy and works perfectly on this pizza in place of red sauce. Two tablespoons of sauce is all you need to cover on batch of fathead pizza crust.

If you don’t want to make your own BBQ sauce, you can buy a store bought low sugar BBQ Sauce. The two brands of BBQ sauce that I recommend are by Lillie’s Q and Primal Kitchen’s.
