Keto Meatlovers Pizza Recipe
Fat Head Pizza Base
- 170 g (1 ¾ cups) shredded/grated cheese mozzarella is the best or Edam/mild cheese
- 85 g (¾ cups) almond meal/flour *see notes below
- 2 tablespoon (2 tablespoon) cream cheese
- 1 eggs - medium
- pinch salt to taste
- herbs and spices * see recipe notes above
- choice of meats and toppings * I uses ham, pepperoni and biersticks
- Mix the shredded/grated cheese and almond flour/meal (or coconut flour if using) in a microwaveable bowl. Add the cream cheese. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute.
- Stir, then microwave on HIGH for further 30 seconds.
- Add the egg, salt, herbs, spices or flavourings, mix gently.
- Place in between 2 pieces of baking parchment/paper and roll into a circular pizza shape (see photos here). Remove the top baking paper/parchment.
- Make fork holes all over the Fat Head 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 over (onto baking paper/parchment) once the top has browned.
- Once cooked, remove from the oven and add all the meat and toppings you like. Make sure any meat is already cooked as this time it goes back into the oven just to heat and melt the cheese. Bake again at 220C/425F for 5 minutes.

I like your list of options for meat pizza toppings. I have developed a strong dislike of tomato-based sauces, so now that I am eating low carb, my favorite sauces for pizza are either just a coat of olive oil, or an Alfredo sauce. I'm looking forward to trying some of your listed topping options.
I have a question? Can you make this and other breads in the air fryer?
Anyone tried this as a cast iron skillet recipe? What adjustments would you recommend?
What is a serving and how many net carbs per serving?
So what is the serving size?
Why not just say 3/4 cup instead of 85 grams.
Because every-one-complains!!!! ? No matter which way I express measurements, I get "moaning minnies" SO I now add both measurements to keep everyone happy. Under each recipe, there are two large red buttons that you can switch between metric (grams) and cups. So have a go, I converted over 200 recipes to include both measurement systems - ya ha! 🙂
Because not everyone is American and works in cups.. We In the UK use grams,never cups.
I am in Australia and we use Grams. I have to convert a lot of recipes to use in Australia but I am getting more fluent with the changes. Have a go - it works your mind as well.
I love using metric! So much more accurate 🙂

Hi Libby! I'm looking for a great tasting casein free low-carb pizza crust. Do you know of one or can you create one? You'd be my new hero if I can get a great recipe!
I'll get my thinking cap on. That's a tricky one!
I am allergic to eggs. Would a flax egg work instead?
You could omit the egg entirely! It would still work.
I've plugged this recipe into MyFitnessPal recipe importer and the nutritional numbers versus yours are way off. Can you tell us how you figured the nutritional values that you came up with?
Firstly, don't use MFP. Their numbers can be so inaccurate. I use cronometer.com which has NCCDB official data rather than "user added". Also MFP doesn't clarify whether some entries are total or net carbs, which as you know, would make an huge difference and be completely wrong. Also remember to divide the nutrition by how many servings you are making. The panels here show per serving, not per recipe 🙂
Thanks for the link! I did notice that it doesn't list net carbs. I've been manually figuring them for some things.
Appreciate the feedback! I'm currently making this delicious looking mess. I have a feeling I'm gonna love it. ?
Do you have to sift the almond flour?
No. I never have time for that 🙂
The fathead pizza crust is unbelievable. Best pizza I have had bar-none.
What if you don't have a microwave oven?
You can easily melt the cheeses gently together in a pan, on the stove top.
Hi, I made this earlier this week using coconut powder and it was really delicious, thank you. One question I have though. It took way more than 12-15 minutes for my crust to brown at the suggested cooking temps. I placed mine on the top rack of my electric oven, should it be lower down perhaps or should I just increase the oven temp?
Coconut flour I meant to say ?
Gosh ovens vary so widely. I have a new oven and cook mine at 200C and it takes about 5-10 minutes to brown on one side (I cook by sight, not timer) then I quickly flip it over and the underside only takes a minute or two to brown. Be guided but your own experience with your own oven. Make a note so you know for next time what temp and time worked.
Thanks for the advice, I will experiment
I love this pizza - sadly two of my grandsons are dairy free so I can't treat them with this!! My husband doesn't like pizza either so I usually make myself a half recipe when he's away.
you should find a new husband, Doesn't like pizza? What kind of animal is he?

Coconut flour? Does that work too or how about all the multi nut flour mixes that seems to have popped up everywhere?
This recipe can be made using almond flour or coconut flour. Both quantities are in the recipe and the recipe notes. Enjoy.
