I won’t lie, but this video seriously shows you how to make the BEST fathead dough. After years of fart-assing around with various methods, I have achieved a miracle.

Watch this video and tell me if you have been making keto fathead dough with this method. Honestly, the texture is so different and all it takes is a few ingredients added at a different times.

I hope you love this recipe and if you do let us know in the comments below how you went making it and anything you did differently or would recommend.

Tools to Make Fathead Rolls

Silicone Mat – a good quality and good size silicone mat is one of the best tools in the kitchen. Use it to wrap foods to keep warm or develop yeast. Roll dough on it or bake on it.

Baking Trays – I choose to have just a few large baking trays that are the same size as my oven shelves. This way I can use each shelf to its maximum capacity. The lighter the colour the better conductor of heat.

Silicone Spatula – throw away those toxic old plastics and get silicone. Most are a one piece silicone spatula that is safe to use to mix or on a hot stove.

  • 250 g (2.5 cups) mozzarella grated
  • 65 g (4.5 tbsp) cream cheese
  • 1 ½ tablespoons (1 ½ tablespoons) baking powder See Note 1
  • 1 teaspoon (1 teaspoon) xanthan gum See Note 2
  • 2 (2) eggs
  • 150 g (1.5 cups) almond meal See Note 3


  • 50 g (0.5 cups) mozzarella shredded
  • 50 g (0.5 cups) tasty cheese shredded
  • 100 g (3.5 oz) bacon cooked and diced



  • Preheat oven to 180℃ fan/200°C static/400°F. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
  • Heat cheese and cream cheese in microwave-safe bowl for 2 minutes on high. Stir to combine. (This can be done in a heat-safe bowl over a pot of simmering water).
  • Add eggs and baking powder. Stir to combine (mixture should foam up a lot). See Note 1.
  • Add remaining ingredients and mix until well combined and until no longer sticky. See Note 2
  • Flatten dough out into large 40 cm x 30 cm rectangle.
  • Spread with bacon and cheese. Roll into a tight sausage lengthwise. Cut into 10-12 equal pieces.
  • Place onto prepared baking tray. Bake 18 – 20 minutes or until lightly golden all over.


  • Preheat oven to 180℃ fan/200°C static/400°F. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
  • Add cheese and cream cheese to mixer. Chop 5 sec/speed 5.
  • Melt cheese 3 min/90°C/speed 3. Add eggs and baking powder and mix 15 sec/speed 3.
  • Add remaining ingredients; mix 10 sec/speed 3. Knead 1 min/dough setting. Follow from Step 5 above.



I always recommend Bob’s Red Mill Double Acting Baking Powder. It is aluminium and gluten free and truly makes a HUGE difference with gluten free keto baking.
Xanthan gum can be omitted. BUT I do not recommend it. Its purpose here is to create a gluten-like bread. It also helps in absorbing the fats and making the dough a lot less sticky and gives it a much better consistency and holding power.
Almond Meal can be substituted with almond flour, or flax meal.
Swap the bacon with ham, sausage or pepperoni. 
If you do not have a microwave; place a heat-safe bowl over a pot of simmering water to melt the cheese.
Working the dough before rolling out can take a few minutes. The dough will be very sticky at first but the more you work it with your spatula the less sticky and more “dough like” it will become. Don’t give up, just keep churning it and get some exercise while making these delicious scrolls.
Best kept in the fridge for up to 5 days. Alternatively, enclose in an airtight ziplock bag and freeze.
I use a 15ml tablespoon and 250ml cup for measures. You can use the calculator to convert ounces in a cup if needed. Please note that there is also a conversion from metric to US Customary button under the list of ingredients.
