That’s where FatHead crackers come in. You will already know the FatHead pizza base is incredibly easy to make, so why not make a double batch while the oven is on and make the FatHead crackers at the same time.
FatHead crackers are great for a snack, serve at parties or keep in a ziplock bag when travelling. Top them off with pate, use in dips, add smoked salmon and cream cheese, or just sprinkled with salt for a simple option.
Using the FatHead pizza base, roll the dough between two sheets of baking parchment. Remove the top layer of paper and cut into bite sized cracker pieces using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife.
Place each FatHead cracker on a baking tray lined with baking parchment, and bake until crisp, turn over, and crisp on the other side. FatHead crackers are so easy and you can flavour them with anything you like.
Here are a few options. The ones pictured are my rosemary and salt FatHead crackers.
- Taco seasoning
- Top with parmesan for the final few minutes
- Lemon and rosemary
- Poppy seeds
See the conversion below to see how to make Fat Head crackers using almond flour or coconut flour.
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, and flavourings, mix gently.
Place in between 2 baking sheets and roll thinly. Remove the top baking sheet. 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.
Cut the dough into small bite size pieces. Place each one on a lined baking tray as shown.
Bake at 220C/425F for 5 minutes on each side, or until browned on both side and crisp.
Cool on a wire rack and keep in an airtight container in the fridge. IF the weather is cool, you may store the container in your pantry for up to 3 days.
Fat Head pastry can also be made by replacing the almond meal/flour with 1/4 cup (4 tbsp) coconut flour.
