Funky Fat Head Pizza
The crust of the Funky Fat Head Pizza is made of cheese and egg and almond flour. My alternative pizza recipe is made of shredded cauliflower and a product called Pofiber, but as Pofiber is not available outside Scandinavia, this pizza crust has become my favourite.
Maybe you tried the Fat Head dough already as many keto fans adore this for both pizza crust, bagels, wraps and more. Recipes are found everywhere on the internet. What you’ll experience with this funky pizza is that you can only eat a few slices because it’s filled with healthy fat. I serve salad with the pizza. The pizza will be perfect on a buffet as well.
How to do the Funky Fat Head Pizza
Serves 3, ingredients for toppings to be found below.
Preheat the oven, 200 C/400 F.
500 ml (please note! ML) grated cheese
3 tbsp ful fat cream cheese, like Philadelphia
280 ml almond flour
2 small eggs
1,5 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp salt
Put the cheese and the cream cheese together on a non stick frying pan, and let it melt at a low heat while preventing it from burning.
Keep the melting cheese in motion. When completely melted like shown in the picture, it takes 3-4 minutes, then add the other ingredients starting with the almond flour.
Divide the pizza dough into two and make a thin pizza crust of each of them between two layers of parchment. Reuse the parchment paper. Use a rolling pin or manage this with your hands. Pinch the dough with a fork.
Bake the pizza crusts for 10-12 minutes. Cool a bit afterwards.
Toppings for the Funky Fat Head Pizza
To make a Funky Pizza you need another 300 gr grated cheese. Choose a variation of ham, sausage, mushrooms, anchovies and artichoke hearts. Style with capers, oregano and garlic. You can choose your own favourites but don’t use too juicy ingredients.
First of all add a good tomato sauce and/or black olive paste to the slightly cooled pizza crusts. Then add a thin layer of grated cheese. I add only few ingredients because I like my Funky Pizza to be simple and the toppings to be heated properly. Bake the pizzas once again at 220C/440F for 8-10 minutes. Keep an eye on them after 8 min.
Tips & Tricks
You can divide this amount of Fat Head Dough into two, three or four pieces, if you prefer to divide your taste of pizza toppings like that. Furthermore, the crusts are very cool used as wraps, which therefore demands a smaller size.
I normally make one pizza with one type of toppings (ham and mushrooms) and then make two different toppings on the second one. It could be a base layer of artichokes and thinly sliced squash/zucchini – topped with anchovies on one half and with italian dry sausage on the other one.
