This Fathead Pizza is a low carb pizza treat that you can add any of your usual favorite toppings to!
1.5cupspart-skim shredded mozzarella cheese(168g by weight)
1ouncefull-fat cream cheese(28g by weight)
3/4cupblanched almond flour*(84g by weight)
Preheat the oven to 425F.
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the mozzarella and cream cheese.
Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring each time, until the cheeses are homogeneously smooth. It should take 2-3 intervals total.
Stir in the almond flour, salt, nutritional yeast (if using), and garlic powder (if using), until smooth. If it's too firm to stir, microwave for an additional 15-30 seconds to soften the dough again.
Add the egg to the bowl, and knead it into the dough either using a firm spatula, or by hand (the dough shouldn't be too hot, but if it is, let it cool slightly). At first it might seem like the egg won't incorporate, but it should with about 30 seconds of kneading.
Place the dough between two pieces of parchment paper***, and roll into the desired shape (circle, rectangle, etc), about 1/8" thick. Keeping the dough on the parchment, transfer to a baking sheet, then remove the top layer of parchment.
Prick the dough all over with a fork, then bake for about 7 minutes, until the dough is golden brown on the bottom and edges, but not yet brown on the top.
Flip the pizza over, then top with whatever ingredients you'd like. I usually add about 1/2 cup of pizza sauce, then more shredded cheese, and pepperoni.
Bake the pizza for an additional 5 minutes, to fully melt the cheese on top. Serve and enjoy!
*Make sure you use blanched almond flour, not "almond meal/flour," which is a lot less finely ground.**I love the flavor of nutritional yeast, so I add it for both flavor and also to fortify the dough with vitamins (I buy Bragg's brand).***Wax paper does not work as well. The dough will stick. Be sure to use parchment.Storage: Leftovers may be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for 2 months. I recommend placing pieces of parchment paper in between slices, to prevent sticking.Reheating: Microwave for about 30 seconds, until the cheese is melted. Or place in a 350F oven for about 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted.Adapted from the Fathead Movie's version.
