For Dough:

  • 2 Eggs
  • 1.5 cups Shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup Coconut Flour

For Toppings:

  • 2 tablespoons Tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon Basil or Oregano optional
  • Shredded Cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mine is a convection so it only does 400 and it takes 25 degrees off. Make sure your oven is heating up while you are preparing your pizza dough.
  2. Add Mozzarella cheese and cream cheese to microwave safe or oven safe bowl.

Microwave method for melting cheese:

  1. If you are going to use microwave for melting cheese, microwave it for 45 seconds and stir it and then again microwave it for another 45 seconds. I use double boiler as I don't have microwave.

Double Boiler Method for melting cheese:

  1. For double boiler method, fill the bottom of the saucepan with water, boil it and place the shredded mozzarella cheese and cream cheese bowl on top of this pan.

  2. Stir this mixture few minutes until water starts boiling and cheese mix starts to melt. Once it starts to melt, stir it every once in a while, until cheese is completely smooth.

Form the Dough with Flour and Egg

  1. Transfer the cheese to a new bowl. Stir in beaten eggs and coconut flour.

  2. Mix the ingredients with your hands until well incorporated. Knead until a dough forms.

  3. Make sure you have two parchment sheets ready with a cookie sheet, one for the bottom and one for rolling it out.

  4. Move the dough to cookie sheet with the parchment paper on it.

  5. Place second piece of parchment paper on top of dough to cover it and roll out.

  6. Spread the dough to 1/3'' or 1/2'' thickness. You can use your hands, rolling pin (if you have) or even a cup to flatten the dough between two sheets of parchment paper.

  7. It is not mandatory but if you want, use a fork or a tooth pick to poke holes throughout the crust to prevent bubbling.

Bake the Fathead Pizza

  1. Bake it for 10 minutes on 425 degrees. I like to put it on the top so that it gets little crispier.
  2. Take it out after 10 minutes, flip it over and bake again for 2-4 minutes, until golden brown.
  3. Spread thin layer of tomato paste. Top the pizza with meat of your choice and favorite toppings. Sprinkle oregano now if you want.
  4. Cover it up with plenty of cheese.
  5. Broil it for 5 minutes.

  6. Slice this up, serve and enjoy.

  7. See the notes for how to make low carb fathead dough with almond flour.
