4 Ingredient Keto Pizza Crust (Fathead Dough)

This low carb pizza dough is better than the real thing. It's also quick and easy to make, gluten free, keto-friendly and made with simple ingredients: almond flour, mozzarella, cream cheese and an egg. I just love easy dinners like this!

Keyword keto, lowcarb
Servings 6 slices


  • 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


  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

  2. In a large bowl, microwave the cream cheese and mozzarella together for 90 seconds, stirring half way through.

  3. 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.

  4. 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).

  5. 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.

  6. Use a fork to pierce lots of holes throughout the dough to help it cook evenly and prevent bubbling.

  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until slightly golden brown.

  8. Remove from the oven and top it with sauce, cheese and the toppings of your choice.

  9. Bake for an additional 5-10 minutes. Gobble up. :-)

Recipe Notes

  • *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 just a little 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.
