Keyword: fathead dough, keto, lowcarb, pizza, pizza crust
Servings: 6 slices


  • parchment paper


  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (plus more for topping)
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • sauce & pizza toppings of your choice


  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, microwave the cream cheese and mozzarella together for 90 seconds, stirring half way through.
  • Stir in the almond flour and beaten egg to combine (if your dough appears to be too sticky, add in a little more almond flour). Knead with your hands until a dough forms.
  • Place the dough in between two large pieces of parchment paper and roll the dough out into a 10" circle, or until it's about 1/3 inch thick. (*See tips in the recipe notes below for keeping the dough from sticking to the paper).
  • Remove the top piece of parchment paper, and place the bottom sheet with the dough on it onto a pizza pan or upside down sheet pan.
  • Use a fork to pierce lots of holes throughout the dough to help it cook evenly and prevent bubbling.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until slightly golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and top it with sauce, cheese, and the toppings of your choice.
  • Bake for an additional 5-10 minutes. Gobble up. 🙂


  • *Before rolling your dough, you can either spray the parchment paper with a little non-stick cooking spray or sprinkle it with grated parmesan or almond flour to keep it from sticking.
  • If you're looking for a low carb pizza sauce, Rao's Pizza Sauce has the lowest net carbs that I've found so far.
  • I get a lot of questions about substituting coconut flour for the almond flour. Yes, you can! Keep the recipe exactly the same except use only 1/3 cup coconut flour and add an extra egg. It may also need a little less cook time-- just keep an eye on it.
