Fathead Pizza

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 8 Slices
Calories 234kcal



  • 1 1/2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella
  • 3/4 Cup Almond Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Cream Cheese
  • 1 Egg
  • Garlic Salt



  • Preheat oven to 425 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine shredded mozzarella (1 1/2 cups) and cream cheese (2 tablespoons) in either a heat safe bowl to microwave, or in the top of a double boiler.
  • If microwaving, use 30 second intervals to melt the ingredients together. Stir ingredients together between intervals. If using a double boiler, stir to combine as the ingredients melt.
  • Once melted, add egg (1) and almond flour (3/4 cup) and stir/knead to combine.
  • Use damp hands to press the dough into a 10" circle on your prepared piece of parchment. If the dough is difficult to spread, simply warm it back up to melt the cheese.
  • Use a fork to poke holes in the dough.
  • Pop the crust in your preheated oven for 8 minutes.
  • Remove the crust and poke holes where any bubbles may have formed.
  • Add toppings, and place crust back in the oven for 12-14 minutes, or until the cheese on top starts to brown slightly.
  • Allow the pizza to cool before slicing, and enjoy!


  1. Almond Flour. Using fine-grained almond flour will yield the most "flour-like" results. My favorite brands are Bob's Red Mill, Trader Joe's, or Costco brands.
  2. Nutritional information is for 1/8th of the pizza, and includes the toppings:
