Fathead pizza(Low Carb)


1½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese
¾ cup almond flour
2 tbsp cream cheese
1 tsp white wine vinegar

½ tsp salt
olive oil to grease your hands
8 oz. italian sausage
1 tbsp butter
½ cup unsweetened tomato sauce
½ tsp dried oregano
1½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese


1Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
2Heat mozzarella and cream cheese in a small, non-stick pan on medium heat or in a bowl in the microwave oven.
3Stir until they melt together. Add the other ingredients and mix well.
4Moisten your hands with olive oil and flatten the dough on parchment paper, making a circle about 8 inches (20 cm) in diameter. You can also use a rolling pin to flatten the dough between two sheets of parchment paper.
5Remove top parchment sheet (if used). Prick the crust with a fork (all over) and bake in the oven for 10–12 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven.
6While the crust is baking, sautée the ground sausage meat in olive oil or butter.
7Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce on the crust. Top the pizza with meat and plenty of cheese. Bake for 10–15 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
8Sprinkle oregano on top and serve with a green salad.

Different toppings
Here we've used sausage meat like in the original recipe, but feel free to put what ever you like on it. Instead of sausage you can use pepperoni, salami or cooked bacon. If you have any chicken, pork or beef leftovers in the fridge, they usually make great pizza toppings.
If you don't want meat we suggest peppers, olives, artichokes or fresh tomatoes and herbs. You can also add different kinds of cheese on top such as feta cheese, blue cheese or even brie.
Storing Fathead Pizza
Make extra crusts and store them for 2-3 days in the fridge or in the freezer for up to 2 months. The pizza reheats great in the microwave so if you get left-overs, and you probably will cause this is very rich, enjoy them in next days lunch box.
This dough is so versatile! Use it as a pizza crust like in this recipe or make it into a lovely homemade garlic focaccia – simply drench with garlic butter and bake for another minute or two.
