This is the Best 3 Cheese Keto White Fathead Pizza Crust Recipe we’ve ever made! It’s got a crispy keto crust that perfect for pilling on all the cheese and toppings!
With the flavors of three very distinct cheeses plus garlic, this pizza is proof that sometimes the simplest flavor combinations are the most delicious! If you’ve been looking for the perfect keto pizza crust, look no further because here it is.
It holds up well (because we all need a slice that we can actually pick up, right?), and has great flavor, as well as bread-y texture and aroma. Before going keto this reminds us of white calzones we’d eat up in New York along with a side of marinara sauce for dipping!
Can we talk about this fathead pizza recipe for a little bit. I know what you’re thinking. This is just the same old fathead crust pizza recipe that you see all over the internet…but it’s not!
Faith worked her magic like she normally does and made a few tweaks and additions to the standard fathead pizza dough recipe. And voila! She made this amazing fathead pizza crust recipe!
This fathead pizza dough recipe cooks up nice and crisp. The fathead dough makes a nice thin low carb pizza crust that actually firms up!
You can pick it up and not fear that you’re going to lose all of your toppings to the floor (or dog) like you would with a standard fathead pizza crust recipe. Also, for all of you who are gluten-free have no fear. This is a keto gluten free pizza crust! All of our recipes are gluten-free for that matter.
So to make this 3 cheese white keto pizza crust recipe, first you need to need to make Faith’s version of the fathead dough recipe.
How to Make Pizza Crust with Fathead Dough
When we make our keto fathead almond flour pizza crust, we prefer to cook it on a stone. You don’t have to but we’ve noticed that it does make a difference with the crispiness level of the crust.
Also, the pizza stone helps it cook quicker, so if you’re using a standard cookie sheet, we recommend increasing the cooking time by 2 minutes.
A budget tip! Pizza stones can be expensive, so before you buy a pizza stone on amazon hit up your local thrift stores! Lara picked up a nice one for $1 at a thrift store.
Pro tip: For a crispy keto pizza crust use a pizza stone instead of a baking sheet
First thing we do is pre-heat the oven and then add the yeast to the warm water. Normal fathead recipes don’t call for yeast, but we like adding it because it gives it more of a bread-like taste!
Pro tip! Psyllium husk powder is another one of our additions that makes this recipe stand out! It gives the pizza a little more fiber and structure.
After that you’ll add the mozzarella and cream cheese to a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 60 seconds and then give it a stir, and continue microwaving in 20-second increments until the cheese is fully melted.
This is standard in pretty much all fat head recipes, but if this is your first time making a fathead dough, don’t worry. Yes the cheese is supposed to be all melted and hard to stir after a while.
Then you will stir the yeast mixture into the melted cheese until combined, and then stir in the beaten egg until combined. Stir in the almond flour mixture until it forms a dough. All of these weird ingredients actually make a pizza dough! I was so surprised the first time I made it too!
To make it a little easier to work with the dough, we suggest oiling your hands so you can knead the dough a couple times until it comes together as a ball.
Pro tip! Roll the dough out between 2 pieces of parchment paper so the fathead dough doesn’t stick to your rolling pin. Ours made about a 12-inch circle. Poke the dough in several places with a fork. Don’t forget this step or it will bubble!
Slide the dough circle onto the preheated clay baking stone and bake until it’s starting to turn golden brown in spots, about 6 minutes. If using a cookie sheet instead of a clay baking stone, cook 8 minutes.
How thick is the crust supposed to be?
We try to roll our fathead dough out as thin as possible before it starts to be see-through or break. You want it thick enough to be crispy, but not thick enough where it becomes a deep dish pizza.
If you make your pizza crust a little thick on accident, you can always add a few minutes to the cooking time.
How to reheat pizza?
We prefer to re-heat our fathead pizza in the oven or or toaster oven. For the toaster oven we use the re-heat setting and in the oven I will typically put it at 350F and cook for 3-4 minutes until the cheese gets bubbly again.
Where was pizza invented?
The traditional pizza is claimed to have been invented by Raffaele Esposito, a baker from Naples, Italy. When we went to Italy this summer, we must admit we had to have a slice. When in Italy, right?
Who invented fathead pizza?
Fathead pizza was named after the Fathead Movie, where the Older Brother’s Oldest Son created the original fathead recipe. You can find their fathead recipe here.
How to make pizza sauce?
So we didn’t opt to make a traditional red pizza sauce. If you’re in the mood for a red pizza sauce, one of our favorites is Rao’s Marinara sauce because of the minimal ingredients and because of the lower carb count (no added sugar too!).
We made a delicious garlic cream sauce instead which is way lower in carbs than a traditional pizza sauce! This white sauce is super easy to make and you make it all while the dough is cooking in the oven!
To make the white sauce, heat the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Once melted, add the garlic and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add the cream cheese, heavy whipping cream, dried parsley flakes, salt, and black pepper and whisk until smooth. Boom! That’s it 🙂
