Fathead dough is all the craze right now. It seems the most common food missed by many when going low carb is pizza. So, of course the recipe Gods created an amazing dough that would work as the perfect alternative. I had to take it a bit further.

What is fathead dough?

Fathead dough is a great keto/low carb alternative that uses almond flour and then mozzarella to replace the missing gluten, resulting in an amazing pizza crust!

Pizza isn’t the only thing people miss when going low carb. It is bread in general. While a burger can be great wrapped in lettuce or simply by itself, some people just don’t feel complete without the bread. For some, this can make or break their low carb or keto success. The cravings just don’t seem to go away unless there is a delicious alternative. That is why I set out to create a bread/roll that can be used for burgers, sandwiches and more, but still fall within the guidelines of low carb and keto approved.

Using the popular fathead dough recipe with a few tweaks, I created soft, raised keto fathead rolls that can be used for anything. Sliders, sandwiches, dinner rolls or simply smothered in butter. I am willing to bet that adding a little sweetener and some blueberries would even turn these into a yummy scone for breakfast!  The basis of the dough is to create a “gluten” using mozzarella. The mozzarella holds the flour together and helps give the dough some chew and pull.

Once you learn his fathead dough recipe you can use it as a base for a lot of different recipes. We have used it for everything from sweet to savory.  Blueberry bars to homemade calzones. The use of mozzarella doesn’t hinder the flavor. If you are making a sweet recipe adding the sweetener or a little cinnamon completely hides any savory flavor you may get from the mozzarella.  It really is quite impressive.  Here… try for yourself!
