Fat Head Pizza Is Now Stuffed Crust!

The level of demolishing I am about to unleash on this keto stuffed crust fat head pizza may forever change the way my husband looks at me! I love pizza. It’s an unhealthy relationship…until now.

Six months ago I went on a keto diet. Like lots of people on the keto diet, it wasn’t the sweets I missed…it was the pizza! I searched for a low carb pizza recipe on Pinterest and found keto fat head pizza dough – wait, it’s pizza and low carb?! Mind blown! Fat head pizza has become a weekly routine for me now.

Don’t get me wrong – I’m involved in a love affair with fat head dough. It’s the best thing since sliced bread – haha. Ok, I’ll stop. Sometimes a girl just needs to be extra though. Enter: Stuffed Crust Keto Fat head Pizza (it should really have its own theme song, don’t you think?).

This beautiful beast of a low carb pizza came about because I was craving stuffed crust pizza – the holy grail of all pizza crusts! But when you’re on a keto diet, you really have to watch the carbs. That means no Pizza Hut.

You can either cry to the diet gods about the loss of a beloved comfort food, or roll them sleeves up! We’re about to make fat head pizza, extra bougie style. You ready? Good!

Making Stuffed Crust Fat Head Dough

1. Gather your ingredients:

Keto fat head pizza dough can be a little tricky to work with at first. I use this recipe. It calls for almond flour, cream cheese, mozzarella (use the low moisture kind), and one egg. I also add a tsp of italian seasoning, a little olive oil, and the star ingredient: cheese sticks!

2. Mixing:

I find that the fat head dough incorporates together better if you mix the almond flour and italian seasoning with the mozzarella before microwaving. After it’s melted, I take a spoon and use a fold and smoosh method with a large spoon to fold the egg in and make it cohesive.

3.Rolling The Dough

After that, I spray my hands and some parchment paper (you cannot use wax paper!) with olive oil, and knead it on the parchment paper a few times to make sure the almond flour is mixed in evenly.

Then, I lay another piece of parchment paper on top and roll it with a rolling pin. You can just press it out with your hands, but I find it easier to roll.

4. Stuffing The Crust

This time, I left the edges a little thicker than normal so there’s extra dough to fold over the cheese sticks. It took me two cheese sticks (cut in half lengthwise, then halved again) to go around the edge of my pizza.

Lay the cheese sticks around the perimeter of your pizza, then fold the outer edge back over, and pinch it. Voila! Keto stuffed crust fat head pizza crust!

5. Cook it!

Just kidding – not yet. Poke rows of holes in the bottom of the pizza with a fork to avoid bubbles. Pop it into a 425 degree oven for 8 minutes.

If you’re not a scatter brain like me, this is where you would relax and enjoy the aroma of the dough cooking. You would have all the toppings ready to go.

Now For The Toppings

1. Cook the turkey

For me, this is where I say “Geez Rachel you forgot to cook the turkey!” and quickly throw some in a skillet. I love Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage, but I’ve been trying to watch my saturated fat, so I seasoned this turkey to taste like sausage. I eyeballed and used pink salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper, cayenne pepper, sage, and cumin.

2. Top the pizza

After your dough has cooked, pull it out and pop any sneaky air bubbles that have made their way into the fat head crust. Your edge should be sealed – if not, fold and pinch again. Next, top that pizza!

I used 1/4 cup of Great Value pizza sauce, but I really want to try this Gluten Free Sauce , 1 cup of mozzarella, 15 pepperonis, 1 cup of crumbled turkey, and 2 tbs of fresh basil. Then, put it back into the oven for 4-6 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Cut into 8 slices and eat it – quickly!  Hurry before the spouse and children smell it! They will try to eat it!

Instructions
  1. Measure into a medium bowl the mozzarella, cream cheese, almond flour, and italian seasoning. Mix together well and microwave for 1 minute. Stir, and microwave for 30 more seconds. This is enough for my microwave, but everyones is different so microwave in 30 second intervals until your dough becomes pliable.
  2. Whisk an egg into a small bowl, then pour into the dough mixture. With the back of a large spoon, fold and smoosh until the egg is incorporated (note: you may need to add a tiny bit more flour).
  3. Spray a sheet of parchment paper and your hands with olive oil. Turn the dough out onto the parchment paper and knead it a few times, making sure everything is mixed together well.
  4. Roll dough into a ball and place in the middle of the parchment paper. Lay another sheet of paper on top, and roll with a rolling pin into a circle shape, leaving the edges a little thicker.
  5. Once you have reached your desired size, remove the top paper. Take two cheese sticks and cut them length wise, repeat. Take the cheese sticks and lay them in a circle shape around the perimeter of your pizza. Fold the crust back over the cheese sticks and pinch to make sure it is sealed.
  6. With a fork, poke rows of small holes in the crust to prevent air bubbles from forming. Slide that bad boy onto a baking sheet or pizza stone and bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 8 minutes.
For the 'sausage'
  1. Take a half pound of ground turkey and throw it into a preheated cast iron skillet (or whatever you're working with). Season with pink salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper, cayenne pepper, sage, and cumin to taste. Cook until no longer pink.
For the toppings
  1. Once dough has finished cooking, inspect it to ensure there are no air bubbles. If there are, simply poke them with a fork again and smooth down. Also, inspect the edges to make sure the dough is still sealed around the cheese sticks.
  2. Take 1/4 cup of whatever pizza sauce you're using and spread it evenly around the pizza. Sprinkle the cup of mozzarella cheese on top of that.
  3. Count out 15 pepperonis and spread them around evenly on the pizza, and sprinkle the sausage on top of that, followed by the chopped basil.
  4. This next step is optional, but I like to pretend I'm fancy by sprinkling just a tiny bit more cheese on top at the end, just to have little melty cheese bits on top of my pepperoni.
  5. Put the pizza back into the oven for another 4-6 minutes, just long enough to warm up all the toppings and melt the cheese. Enjoy!
