Full credit needs to go to Tom Naughton who created FatHead the movie and this recipe sensation. For anyone who doesn’t know, Fat Head Movie is a comedy-documentary by Tom Naughton (comedian and former health writer). The documentary explains how low cholesterol is unhealthy, saturated fat does not cause heart disease but instead sugars, grains, starches and processed vegetable oils do. This is one of his short clips titled “Saturated fat and Cholesterol Lies”.
Not only can you make a regular low carb pizza, you can also make low carb crackers. The base is so incredibly versatile. What do you do with yours?

Green FatHead Toppings
- 1 zucchini/ courgette finely sliced
- handful fresh mint finely sliced
- 1/2 spring onion finely sliced
- feta crumbled
FatHead Pizza Base
Mix the shredded/grated cheese and almond flour/meal in a microwaveable bowl. Add the cream cheese. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute.
Stir then microwave on HIGH for another 30 seconds.
Add the egg, salt, rosemary and any other flavourings, mix gently.
Place in between 2 pieces of baking parchment/paper and roll into a circular pizza shape. Remove the top piece of baking paper/parchment. If the mixture hardens and becomes difficult to work with, pop it back in the microwave for 10-20 seconds to soften again but not too long or you will cook the egg.
Make fork holes all over the pizza base to ensure it cooks evenly.
Slide the baking paper/parchment with the pizza base, on a baking tray (cookie tray) or pizza stone, and bake at 220C/425F for 12-15 minutes, or until brown.
To make the base really crispy and sturdy, flip the pizza base over (onto baking paper/parchment) once the top has browned.
Once cooked, remove from the oven and add all the toppings. Sprinkle the spring onion and mint then top with very very thin slices of zucchini/courgettes and finally crumbled feta.
Bake again at 220C/425F for 5 minutes.
Fat Head pastry can also be made by replacing the almond meal/flour with 1/4 cup (4 tbsp) coconut flour.
Nutrition panel is for base only as toppings will vary widely depending on what was added and how much.
