Amanda and Nathan have been on the KETO diet for quite a while now. They love the results. They feel good and look fantastic. Very inspirational couple!
I’m learning more about this KETO diet and must say I’m drawn to it. Even though the thought of giving up carbs is agonizing. I REALLY enjoyed this Fat Head Pizza crust. (Who came up with that name???).
I was full at one piece of pizza and sort of forced myself to eat two. I had to eat two for the photo shoot didn’t I? 🙂 But dessert is NOT happening. I’m completely stuffed and feel full and satisfied.
Dave was also fully satisfied after a couple of pieces. And LOVED this pizza. I was really surprised by that. This is a thin crust pizza and we are used to the Stuffed style. The flavor is SO good. He asked me to make it again. That is high praise.
I could NOT believe the instructions told me to microwave the dough ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. This whole recipe is SO incredibly easy. Heat it up and roll it out. Bake!
Pizza crust is a LONG process when I work with my yeasted sourdough breads (NOW you know why I resist KETO. I love bread. And making it too!).
Warning: The thing about going on a keto diet is you have to REALLY commit to it. Otherwise all that fat will stick to your waistline instead of being metabolized like the keto diet is designed to do.
Sticking a toe in the keto water, so to speak, will not help you reduce weight or eat healthier. Pushing your body to ketosis takes a commitment. Keeping it there is more commitment. Eating too many carbs and eating keto too will be nirvana. UNTIL you realize your pants don’t fit anymore.
I do NOT recommend using your pizza stone for this low carb pizza recipe. I made it work but it was a near thing. When i placed the Fathead dough on a hot pizza stone it instantly began to cook. Which is not ideal when your still spreading it on the stone.
I was spreading the dough on my preheated pizza stone and realizing I was causing holes to form due to the crust cooking (and sticking to the stone) before I spread the dough out completely. So I stopped fooling with it and baked it with a hole or two. Good news is I didn’t need to worry about the crust bubbling on me since it was well vented.
UPDATE: One of our readers shared that she lays her fat head pizza crust recipe on PARCHMENT on the baking stone. Then she pre-bakes the crust for 5 minutes before loading on the sauce and fillings and it bakes fine.
Working with Mozzarella cheese as a pizza crust is definitely different from good ole carby bread dough. It takes some getting used to for sure. Our Cauliflower low carb pizza crust is also pretty delicious, and yes, It too handles differently than you might expect. And it Tastes delish so it’s worth figuring out.
This keto fathead pizza recipe did NOT stick to my baking stone. Fortunately the pizza dough just cooked REALLY fast. Like 5 minutes instead of 10. But the baked crust came off the stone easily enough. My oven is also very hot. I may need to turn down the heat a bit for my crust to bake correctly.
I thought about next time NOT preheating the stone. But I’m worried the crust would definitely adhere to a cold stone. Covering your baking stone with parchment or Using a baking sheet or pizza pan would be less stress.
FatHead KETO Pizza Recipe:
This is an EASY 30 minute low carb dinner. I was out of garlic powder so I chopped two cloves of raw garlic up. We really loved the flavor garlic added to the crust. Either powder or raw garlic will work in this recipe.
IT IS NECESSARY to use the parchment method of rolling out this low carb pizza dough. The dough WILL STICK to your rolling pin otherwise. The dough rolls easily between the two pieces of parchment paper. I use this same method of rolling out dough for my coconut oil pie crusts too. It works great and the dough peels off the parchment very well.
I used my Homemade Pizza sauce which is optional with this recipe. I enjoy the extra flavor it adds and sauce is…saucy and nice under the ingredients. It does add some carbs to this meal though. So you may have to find another option to keep your net carbs down.
Substituting coconut flour for almond flour?
Yes you can!
Use 1/4 Cup Coconut Flour to replace the almond flour in this fathead pizza recipe.

Hi, I use my stone but I roll my dough out on parchment paper and put that along with the assembled pizza into the oven. I also cook the dough all by itself for about five or six minutes then load the dough with ingredients and pop it onto the stone to bake for 9-12 minutes.

Hi Karen, Thanks so much for sharing your tips with the baking stone. I will definitely try the parchment paper and pre-cooking out.
