  • For the crust:
    • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
    • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
    • 1 large egg
    • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
    • Pinch of salt
  • For the toppings:
    • 1/2 cup sugar-free tomato sauce or marinara sauce
    • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
    • Your choice of toppings (e.g., pepperoni, cooked sausage, sliced bell peppers, onions, olives, mushrooms)


  1. Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet or pizza stone with parchment paper.
  2. Make the crust: In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the shredded mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the cheeses are melted and well combined.
  3. Add remaining crust ingredients: Add the egg, almond flour, baking powder, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and a pinch of salt to the melted cheese mixture. Mix well until a dough forms.
  4. Shape the crust: Place the dough on the prepared baking sheet or pizza stone. Using your hands, press the dough into a round pizza shape, about 1/4 inch thick. Optionally, use a rolling pin to help shape the dough.
  5. Bake the crust: Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until it starts to turn golden brown.
  6. Add the toppings: Remove the crust from the oven and evenly spread the tomato sauce. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella and add your desired toppings.
  7. Bake the pizza: Return to the oven and bake for another 8-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the crust is golden brown.
  8. Serve: Let the pizza cool for a few minutes before slicing. Serve hot and relish your delicious Keto Fathead Pizza!
