Well, it’ Friday and for some, that means pizza! I have made MANY grain-free and low-carb pizzas over the last 7 years. Some just with MEAT, some on a grain-free crust/flatbread and others almost like a casserole but this pizza recipe is the closest to real pizza I have ever had! Don’t fool around with even the cauliflower crust, this recipe is SO MUCH easier and delicious!
I can’t take credit for the recipe though. Fathead pizzas have been around for about 6 years. It was created by Tom Naughton in 2013. Tom, I don’t know you but you are a GENIUS!
The dough of the pizza consist of basically mozzarella cheese, cream cheese, eggs and almond flour. The rest is just lagniappe. The dough is so stretchy and pliable, just like real gluten pizza is.
I modified Tom’s recipe and made it a bit bigger, this recipe will make a 12″ pizza! This recipe is SO simple and delicious, I can’t wait for you to fool your friend and family! 🙂
Of course, this recipe contains dairy. That is what gives this dough it’s structure. If you are looking for a great dairy-free pizza crust, give this on a try. My dairy-free son LOVES it. I do purchase dairy-free cheese and add just a little bit on top. I keep the cheese in the freezer since I don’t use much.
