- Once baked, remove from the oven and flip the base over.
- Top with sauce and favorite toppings and return to the oven on the broiler setting till the cheese melts

- Eat it hot! It tastes best when it’s just out of the oven.
- Before adding the egg, make sure the cheese is cool enough to touch. Too hot and you’ll end up with scrambled eggs.
- The thinner you roll it out, the crisper the crust will be.
- If you don’t eat an egg, you can make the dough without it.
So the fathead crust clocks in at 14 carbs per pizza, which is 8 net carbs. A. The main components are almond flour and cheese, both give it some structure and bite. It really is like a crisp, thin-crust pizza.
Tips For The Perfect Fathead Crust
A couple of things to keep in mind when making this. Always let the cheese cool a bit before you add the egg into it, lest you end up with a scrambled egg in the process. Two, it’s definitely best eaten immediately.
And three, if you are a ‘pure-vegetarian’, you can make the crust without the egg too. Finally, the thinner you roll it out, the ‘crisper’ you can get it. It’s also a good idea to use parchment paper on both sides if you’re using a rolling pin. Otherwise, you can always just wet your hands to prevent sticking and press out the dough into the desired shape.
Fathead Pizza Toppings
When it comes to toppings, the world is your oyster. You can use the standard keto marinara sauce, or you can go even lower carb and use my keto basil pesto. I personally love toppings like pepperoni, ham, mushrooms, and red onions. Those would be my favorites, but you can add pretty much anything to it. Just not pineapple.
