Ingredients

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 400F. Prepare a piece of parchment paper by rubbing it with oil or cooking spray. You must use parchment paper, not wax paper.
  • In a large glass bowl, mix together the mozzarella cheese, almond flour, Italian seasoning, and salt.  Microwave on high for 1 minute.  If not completely melted, melt for 30 seconds more.  (see notes for stovetop method)
  • Add the cream cheese to the mozzarella mixture and combine with a spoon.  when the dough is cool enough to handle, add in the egg and mix well with hands.
  • Dump the dough out on to a piece of parchment paper.  Oil your hands or a rolling pin with oil and press the dough into a 10-12 inch circle or oblong shape.  Place the parchment paper directly on the oven rack with the pizza crust and bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Keep and eye on it and pop any bubbles that form in the crust.
  • Remove the crust from the oven and top with your favorite toppings.  Bake for 8-10 minutes more.  
  • Cut into 6-8 slices and serve.  1 pizza crust recipe makes 2 servings.

Notes

  • Nutrition is for 1/2 of the crust only.  Any toppings you add will be extra.
  • For a coconut flour crust: use 1/3 cup coconut flour in place of the almond flour and increase the eggs to 2.
  • For stovetop instead of microwave: Place the glass bowl with mozzarella and flour over a pot of simmering water and stir until melted.  
  • For individual keto pizza crusts: cut the complete dough in half and shape into 2 individual pizza crusts on the parchment paper.  You could use 1 or 2 pieces of parchment.
  • For a crispier crust: After pre-baking, flip the crust before adding the toppings.
  • To freeze fathead pizza crust: Follow directi0ns 1-4 for pre-baking the crust.  Make as many as you need and stack the crusts in the freezer with the parchment paper.  Freeze for 1 hour, then wrap in plastic wrap followed by foil.  Freeze for up to 3 months.  When ready to use, pre-heat oven, remove from freezer (no need to thaw), add your favorite toppings, and bake in 400F oven for 8-10 minutes.
