Fathead pizza base


Prep Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 6

This unusually named recipe can be found in many places online and google claims it as their most popular low carb download. If you’re craving pizza in a healthier way, you’ve just found the answer. So similar to a traditional pizza base and these can also be made in bulk and stored in the freezer for future use.


  • 170g mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 85g almond meal flour
  • 2 tblsp cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • Pinch salt
  • ½ tsp mixed dried Italian herbs


Preheat oven to 200°C and line a pizza tray, pizza stone or baking tray with non-stick baking paper.

  1. Place the grated cheese, almond meal and cream cheese in a medium size microwave proof bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute.
  2. Remove and stir then put back in to microwave on high for another 30 seconds.
  3. Add the egg, salt and herbs and mix gently until a dough ball forms.
  4. Take two sheets of baking paper and roll dough between them into desired pizza tray size.
  5. Using a fork, prick holes all over the base.
  6. Bake in oven for approx 15 minutes or until golden brown. Take care not to overcook as it browns quickly towards the end of cooking time.
  7. Remove from oven, flip base over and add any pizza toppings you like eg. sugo sauce, salami, mushrooms, olives, peppers, herbs and more mozzarella.
  8. Place back in oven for 5-10 minutes to heat up the toppings and melt the cheese until golden.

About Linda

After changing to a low-sugar real food diet over 3 years ago and experiencing huge health improvements, Linda wanted to create some Australian-made products to help others on a similar journey.  The biggest challenge she had at the start of changing to a low sugar eating style was finding an easy replacement for her beloved sweet treats, especially at family celebrations.  Drawing on her background as a cookbook author and food writer, Linda spent many months in the kitchen fine-tuning the recipes that are used in these mixes.  Please check out Linda’s website for more details and know that she’ll be doing a super happy dance every time someone places an order.
