One of the big things I like eating are low-carb are dips – cottage cheese, crab dip or tzatziki.. all are amazing! But the lack of pita bread disappoints me. So I turned the delicious fathead dough into keto flatbread.. aka fathead flatbread. I just love how versatile this dough is!

If you don’t know what fathead dough is, it’s just almond flour and skim mozzarella cheese. You definitely want to use skim because full fat mozza is too greasy and jumping grease stuck to my oven.. and then the fire alarm kept going off.. so USE SKIM!

What you need:

  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 cups skim grated mozzarella

Mix together the two ingredients in a pot. In a slightly larger pot, fill 1/4 of it with water and bring to a boil. Place the cheese mix pot overtop the boiling wanter (or use a double boiler if you have one).. stir continuously until it forms a dough.

Place it on a piece of parchment paper… Knead for a couple minutes. Place another piece of parchment paper on top and roll with a rolling pin until the dough is as flat as can be.

Cut into triangles or any other shape you want.

Move the parchment paper to a cookie sheet. Bake at 350° until the dough has slightly puffed and has browned.

Parchment paper is a MUST in the oven. I tried it without.. and well.. it stuck to the cookie sheet. It was fun.

Let them cool and eat with your favourite dip!

If cut into 35 pieces, each piece has roughly: 

  • 33 cals
  • 2.3g of fat
  • 0.7g of carbs
  • 0.3g of fibre
  • 2.3g of protein
