Fathead Pizza Crust
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Add the mozzarella and cream cheese to a large bowl. Place in the microwave for 60 seconds.
Remove the mixture from the microwave. Add the Italian Seasoning and stir.
Stir in the almond flour. The mixture may become really thick and difficult to stir. If so, place the bowl back in the microwave for another 30 seconds.
Remove from the microwave and stir. Add in the egg. Stir until the mixture forms crust.
Place a sheet of parchment paper over the pizza pan.
Spoon the dough onto the parchment paper. Place another sheet of parchment paper over the dough to help roll out and flatten the dough.
For extra flavor spread the melted butter over the crust using a cooking brush. (optional)
Using a fork, poke holes throughout the pizza dough. This will allow the crust to rise.
Bake for 8 minutes.
Assemble the Pizza and Bake
Remove the pizza from the oven. Spread the Raos marinara sauce over the pizza crust.
Add the fresh spinach.
Add the pepperoni slices throughout. Sprinkle the mozzarella, cheddar and Parmesan cheese on the top.
Bake for an additional 8-10 minutes until the cheese has melted. Mine was ready at 8 minutes.
Cool before serving.
Fathead Pizza Recipe Tips The dough will be really sticky to roll out. Use parchment paper to bake. You can either use really clean hands or a second sheet of parchment paper to roll out the dough. If you roll the dough with your hands, wet them first. This will keep the dough from sticking to your hands and fingers as you roll it out.
If the batter becomes too thick and hard to stir, microwave for another 15 seconds. This will allow the almond flour to moisten some with the cream cheese and mozzarella.
Applying melted butter to the pizza crust is awesome, and trust me it tastes amazing.
For a thinner crust pizza use 3/4 cup almond flour, one egg, and 1 tablespoon of cream cheese as a modification.
