Fat Head Dough

Calzone Filling


Fat head Dough

  • 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 the dough in between 2 pieces of baking parchment/paper and roll out as shown in the  pictures above. 


  • Remove the top piece of paper. Cut the Fat Head dough into circle shapes using a glass tumbler or mug. 
  • Place the circle of dough into the calzone press. Place 1 or 2 teaspoons of spaghetti bolognese into the centre, add some grated/shredded cheese, then close the calzone press gently. After the first calzone, you will know whether to add more or less to the calzones. Each calzone press is slightly different.
  • Place each meat and cheese filled calzone on a lined baking dish, bake at 180C/350F for 20 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.


  • Fat Head pastry can also be made by replacing the almond meal/flour with 1/4 cup (4 tbsp) coconut flour.
  • 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.
  • If you do not have a microwave, you can gently melt the cheeses together in a saucepan.
