Green FatHead Pizza Recipe
FatHead Pizza Base
Green FatHead Toppings
- 1 zucchini/ courgette finely sliced
- handful fresh mint finely sliced
- ½ spring onion/scallion 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.
