It has been a crazy few weeks! Brian and I are gearing up for our Disney trip and we couldn’t be more excited! I was a little nervous at first about bringing a 6 month old but from what I’m hearing we will be absolutely fine! I’m definitely trying to stay super on track with my eating until we go because I KNOW chances are I’m going to have some things that aren’t perfectly keto! This Fat Head Pizza….OMFG! When everyone talked about Fat Head Pizza and were legit losing their minds over it, I should have instantly made it. I can’t believe that it has taken me this long!
Fat Head Pizza
- 1 3/4 cups pre shredded/grated cheese mozzarella is the best or Edam/mild cheese
- 3/4 cups almond meal/flour
- 2 tbsp cream cheese
- 1 egg
- pinch salt to taste
- 1/2 tsp dried rosemary/ garlic or other flavourings optional
- your choice of toppings such as pepperoni peppers, cherry tomatoes, olives, ground/mince beef, mushrooms, herbs etc
Mix the shredded/grated cheese and almond flour/meal in a microwaveable bowl. Add the cream cheese. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute.
Stir then microwave on HIGH for another 30 seconds.
Add the egg, salt, rosemary and any other flavourings, mix gently.
Place in between 2 pieces of baking parchment/paper and roll into a circular pizza shape (see photos above). Remove the top baking paper/parchment. If the mixture hardens and becomes difficult to work with, pop it back in the microwave for 10-20 seconds to soften again but not too long or you will cook the egg.
Make fork holes all over the pizza base to ensure it cooks evenly.
Slide the baking paper/parchment with the pizza base, on a baking tray (cookie tray) or pizza stone, and bake at 220C/425F for 12-15 minutes, or until brown.
To make the base really crispy and sturdy, flip the pizza over (onto baking paper/parchment) once the top has browned.
Once cooked, remove from the oven and add all the toppings you like. Make sure any meat is already cooked as this time it goes back into the oven just to heat up the toppings and melt the cheese. Bake again at 220C/425F for 5 minutes.
I found this recipe! It is from Ditch The Carbs! Ours is square not round because we don’t have a pizza pan. I definitely need to get one!!
