Mozzarella Dough Recipe (AKA Fat Head Dough)
The original recipe for mozzarella dough was called Fat Head dough. Why? Because Tom Naughton first published the recipe, and he is the creator of Fat Head, the movie. So credit where credit is due. Tom’s recipe is now infamous in the low-carb and keto world.
Scroll below and you can see all the recipes I have created using this classic keto dough.
You simply melt mozzarella dough with some cream cheese, then mix in your choice of low-carb flour and an egg, then roll out in between two sheets of baking parchment.
How To Make Keto Pizza Scrolls
Once you have the mozzarella dough rolled out, spread all your favourite pizza toppings inside, roll it up, then slice into small slices.
Suggested pizza scroll fillings:
- no added sugar tomato paste (tomato paste is very strong flavoured, so it only adds a few carbs to the nutrition values)
- favourite meat such as ham, pepperoni, or salami
- shredded/grated cheese
- herbs such as oregano, rosemary, thyme
Next, place each keto pinwheel onto a lined baking tray, and bake at220C/425F for 15 minutes. And why not sprinkle with even more cheese or herbs before baking? It will turn into a yummy crispy topping.

Mix the shredded/grated cheese and almond flour/meal in a microwaveable bowl. Add the cream cheese. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute. (see recipe notes)
Stir then microwave on HIGH for another 30 seconds.
Add the egg and salt, mix gently.
Place the keto dough in between 2 pieces of baking parchment/paper (see photos above). Remove the top baking paper/parchment and cut into a rectangle shape.
Spread tomato paste over the prepared dough. Add slices of ham or pepperoni and other favourite fillings. Roll up tightly using the bottom sheet of baking parchment.
Cut into slices and place each one on a baking tray (cookie tray), and bake at 220C/425F for 12-15 minutes, or until golden.
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.
If you don't have a microwave, you may melt the cheese together in a saucepan on the stove top gently.
