Fathead Pizza – Perfect for Keto Diets!

04 March 2017,   By ,   0 Comments

A few years back, I was hooked on the cauliflower pizza base. It brought one of my favourite foods back into my life – PIZZA!!! However, it takes a lot of work to create the perfect cauli-base. If not quite done right, they crumble, get mushing and although they may look like a pizza, the convenience factor on a scale on 1 to 10 is -3! But fear not! Pizza is now BACK on the menu – faster, easier and high quality fat/low carb! Check out this beauty:

 

Anyway, how to we make this super-amazing, nutrition-bomb of energy? It’s really simple – 4 ingredients and a few herbs…. takes 10 minutes and 12-15 mins in the oven…. here’s the full story:

Fathead Pizza Bases:

Fathead Pizza Bases ready to roll!

Pre-heat your oven to 220oC

 

Place 170gm Mozzarella Cheese & 2 tblsp Cream Cheese in a glass bowl and microwave on high for 1 min.

Stir the mixture until smooth

Add 85gm Almond Meal, 1 egg a pinch of salt and perhaps some herbs (rosemary, oregano, basil)

Mix well and stir until it all balls into a dough

Wet your hands and turn out onto baking paper – I usually split this into 2 small pizza bases but you could just make a big one.

Pat out on baking paper (on pizza tray) to desired thickness/diameter – it makes an awesome thin crust!

Prick with a fork all over

Place in pre-heated oven for 10-15mins until golden brown. CHECK it periodically…. if it’s bubbling up – stab with fork again!

Remove from oven and top with all of your favourite pizza ingredients!

******BONUS****** You can use the same recipe to create Keto-crackers (just need to cook them a bit longer and let them cool) Perfect for when you want to eat your grass-fed butter, cream cheese, keto dips or homemade nut butters and you feel weird just eating them straight out of the container/pack! *********

Peace, love and keto,
