Fathead Pizza!


In the long time that I have been eating Low Carb and searching the internet for recipes, I have seen the name fathead come by a lot, but never quite knew what it was.

Until today. I found a recipe for a fathead pizza base, made with cheese and almond flour, and it turned out great!!

Here’s the recipe:

170 grams of grated cheese, mozzarella or gouda;

85 grams of almond flour

1 egg

2 T creamcheese


First melt the cheeses in the microwave and stir well. After that add the almond flour and the egg and mix well again.

Put the mixture (with some herbs, garlic, salt/pepper) on a baking tray with a baking sheet at flatten it. Bake at 220C for 12-15 minutes, turn over and bake for another 5-10 minutes.

This is your pizza base. You can put just about anything you want on this pizza, just bake it for another 5-10 minutes and then your pizza is ready!




Ok. This was only my first try using tempeh. But I sincerely doubt if I will ever be using tempeh again. I marinated the stuff in soy, oil, sambal and some other things, and I stir fried it with Japanese herbs.

Result: I couldn’t keep the tempeh in my mouth. What horrible taste! Tasted like vomit. Really. I swear.

So no Tempeh for me again I’m afraid!

The dish did look good though…
