People often ask what FatHead dough is… well here’s a recipe. I’ve made pizza, sausage rolls, pie crust(top only), cinnamon rolls, breakfast pop tarts and pasties with this and still thinking of more ideas.

Fat Head Dough


• 170g grated mozzarella

• 85g ground almonds

• 2 tbsp cream cheese (full fat)

• 1 egg

• salt to taste

• ½ tsp flavourings of choice optional (onion powder, garlic granules, herbs)


1 Mix the shredded/grated cheese and almond flour/meal in a microwaveable bowl. Add the cream cheese. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute.

2 Stir then microwave on HIGH for another 30 seconds.

3 Add the egg, salt, and flavourings, mix gently.

4 Place in between 2 pieces of baking parchment and roll out to desired thickness. If the mixture hardens and becomes difficult to work with, pop it back in the microwave for 10-20 seconds to soften again but not too long or you will cook the egg.

5 Shape cut or fill as desired, Place on a lined baking tray.

6 Bake at 220C/425F for 5 minutes on each side, or until browned on both side and crisp. May be longer if thicker dough.

7 Cool on a wire rack and keep in an airtight container in the fridge. IF the weather is cool, you may store the container on your pantry for up to 3 days.

**Instead of savoury flavours Add vanilla extract and a few drops of liquid Stevia to the beaten egg to make a sweet dough**
