The low-carb bread dough is naturally grain-free, wheat free, low carb and keto. Everyone LOVES it, even unsuspecting carb lovers.

It was the brainchild of Tom Naughton who is the genius behind the Fat Head movie – hence the original name, Fat Head dough.

Low-Carb Mozzarella Dough – The Basic Recipe – 4 Ways
Low-Carb Mozzarella Dough - 4 ways
- 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 any other flavourings, mix gently.
- Use the basic mozzarella dough in a variety of ways detailed below.
Low-Carb Mozzarella Dough Pizza – the Holy Grail
Place the low-carb dough in between 2 pieces of baking parchment/paper and roll into a circular pizza shape (see photos in this post). Remove the top 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 over (onto baking paper/parchment) once the top has browned.
- Once cooked, remove from the oven and add all the toppings you like. Make sure any meat is already cooked as this time it goes back into the oven just to heat up the toppings and melt the cheese. Bake again at 220C/425F for 5 minutes.
Low-Carb Mozzarella Dough – Bagels
- Add 1 tsp of baking powder to the dough mixture, mix thoroughly.
- Divide the mozzarella dough into 6 equal sizes. Roll into balls then into cylinder shapes as shown in the video.
- Fold the ends of the cylinder shapes in a circle and squeeze the two ends together to form a bagel shape.
- Place on a baking tray and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake at 220C/425F for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Serving suggestions – cream cheese, avocado, smoked salmon, bacon bits
Low-Carb Mozzarella Dough – Garlic Bread
- Add 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tbsp parsley, 1 tbsp garlic to the basic low-carb dough recipe, mix.
- Place the dough onto a baking tray/sheet pan lined with baking parchment. Form into a garlic bread shape.
- Cut little slices into the low-carb garlic bread.
- Mix 2 tbsp melted butter, 1 tsp parsley and 1 tsp garlic. Brush over the top of the low-carb garlic bread, sprinkle with more cheese.
