Keto Dough

So there’s this fathead dough thing, right? I’m pretty sure most of us know what fathead dough is.

It is a pretty standard recipe that many recipe creators have used, modified and enjoyed using as part of their creations.

What some people might NOT understand is how absolutely versatile this dough is and how you can make bland things, savory things, sweet things, just about any flavored “thing” there is!

I wanted to create this article to outline my simple approach for using fathead dough and how YOU can use it in your everyday recipes as well.

Let’s start with some super simple additions that you make to the base fathead dough recipe to create some (still simple, yet) lovely dough.

Keto Dough

Savory Keto Dough Spice Blend

Mmmm…. Savory. i.e. not sweet!

My standard addition to the keto savory dough is to add:

  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning (optional)

I love how the 3 of these work together. Garlic and onion are just my favs and the Italian seasoning is this versatile blend that goes well with bread and doughs.

Keto Dough Spice Blend

Sweet Keto Dough Option

I definitely don’t go crazy with this one. The absolutely beautiful thing about fathead dough is that it is so easy to turn savory OR sweet. It is like this amazing tasting neutral base that is just waiting for just a little something extra!

So for the sweet keto dough, I simply add:

  • 1 tablespoon low carb sweetener

On occasion, I’ve been known to throw a touch of cinnamon in there!

Keto Dough Spice Blend

How To Make the Base Keto Dough

Alright, let’s get down to the basics and talk about how to make this wonderful keto fathead dough! The original dough, that is.

For the base dough, we have:

1 1/2 cups low moisture, shredded mozzarella cheese
2 ounces cream cheese
3/4 cup almond flour
1 egg, beaten

Instructions:

In a medium bowl, combine beaten egg and almond flour and set aside.

In a small microwave safe bowl, combine Mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Heat for 60 seconds, stir and heat for about 30 more seconds. You can melt over the stove if you wish as well.

Add cheese mixture to egg mixture.

Keto Dough

Using your hands, squeeze the dough through your fingers to combine. The cheese will be hot, so be careful not to burn yourself.

It will feel like it won’t combine, but it really will.

Put the dough in the fridge for 10 minutes to cool.

Now, what you do with it after that all depends on what you are making! But it usually involves baking at 350 for a certain period of time!

Check out some options below for how to modify the base keto dough and make some lovely keto foods.

Keto Single Serve Pizza

How To Make Keto Pizza With Savory Dough Option

You have 2 options. You can make one pizza or you can make 3 single serve pizzas. I like to make one larger keto pizza when I am making dinner and then I make the 3 single serve keto pizzas as a meal prep for weekly lunches.

The dough freezes very well if you bake it and then freeze it before putting the toppings on.

Here is how to make the keto pizzas:

How to Make Keto Rolls With The Savory Dough Option

I have to say that the keto rolls recipe was the one I’m most proud of. I haven’t seen another like it, but I’m sure they are around!

Very similar to the keto pizza, but a few differences. Namely, baking powder and baking at a different temperature. And yes, a different baking temperature can make a HUGE difference in the end result
