Recipe Steps

steps 5

45 min

  • Step 1

    Begin by preparing your coconut fathead dough. Add the coconut flour, grated cheddar, cream cheese, butter, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, half a teaspoon of salt, black pepper, and parmesan to a food processor. Blend to combine creating a chunky crumb.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Crack the eggs into the food processor with the crumb mixture. Blend until well combined and a dough forms. The dough should feel ever so slightly tacky but be easy to mold and shape.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut two large sheets of baking parchment. Scoop the fathead dough out onto one of the sheets of baking paper. Lay the second sheet of paper over the top of the dough. Roll the dough into an even circle roughly 1/4 inch thick. The pizza base should be approximately the size of a dinner plate.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Transfer the pizza base on the sheet of baking paper to a large shallow oven tray. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. The dough should be lightly golden and beginning to firm. Whilst the pizza base is cooking, thinly slice the tomato. After 10 minutes, remove the part cooked pizza base from the oven. Spread the marinara sauce in an even layer over dough base. Scatter over the grated mozzarella and arrange the tomato slices over the cheese.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    Transfer the pizza back to the oven. Cook for an additional 12-15 minutes, until the pizza base is golden, the cheese is melted and the tomatoes are soft. Roughly chop the basil and scatter over the pizza do serve.
    Step 5

    I made a few changes, used blanched almond flour instead of coconut flour. I also used one egg. and added Italian seasoning to the crust. Very tasty 😊

      Hi, Yes it is personal preference I made this pizza and we didn’t like the crust it smelled great looked great but the taste wasn’t there dry and crumbly

        Haven't tried the recipe but these comments..I just couldn't pass by. People, be more kind to each other! If you didn't like it, could you put it in other words perhaps, instead of saying "disgusting, awful"? Wow. Author, don't take it close to heart.

          Hello, this is not a very successful recipe, the crust comes out really dry and crumbly and as soon as it cools a little it is no longer tasty. I have used other recipes that had more mozzarella cheese and they were much moister
