The Ingredients

200 g mozzarella – the pre-shredded stuff is good to use, just check the ingredients.

50 g cream cheese – cream cheese can be substituted with butter.

100 g almond meal – almond meal can be substituted with a 1/4 cup coconut flour, or chia flour or even golden flax meal (for a nut free fathead recipe)

1 egg

Pinch salt

Optional – garlic salt

Keto Fathead Dough Variations

As mentioned above there are few substitutions and variations you can make with a fathead dough.

To be honest my favourite version is with golden flax meal in place of the almond meal. It gives a better flavour to the dough in my opinion. 

Also another little tip to make the best low carb pastry is to add 1 – 2 tablespoons of baking powder (I use aluminium free double acting). When you add baking powder the mix will get foamy and require a little bit of extra effort to mix together. Adding the baking powder results in a puffier slightly risen pastry. It is so damn good.
