A Stuffed Fathead Dough Recipe!

by hungryelephant

Just after starting a ketogenic diet, I was a bit disheartened while grocery shopping. I couldn’t buy any bread! BUT after deciding to to take a fathead dough recipe and STUFF it with delicious flavours (inspired by www.ruled.me).. I knew I had made a good decision.

This is AMAZING. fathead bread is only made of two ingredients.. Almond flour (or ground almonds) and mozzarella cheese.. and let me tell you, you could not taste the almonds at all. It was ALL cheese. The crust tasted like a deliciously cheesy bagel that has the slightly burnt cheese bits on it. OMG.

Stuffed Fathead Bread

A variation of fathead dough, stuffed with delicious herbs, spices and much more.


  • 3/4 cup ground almonds or almond flour
  • 2 cups grated mozzarella
  • 2 small yellow onions
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Bacon bits
  • Coriander seeds
  • Parsley
  • Garlic powder
  • Parmesan cheese


The first thing you will want to do is heat up the butter, chop up the onions and slowly caramelize the onions. Let them sit in the butter on medium low.. stir occasionally, until they are nice and brown.

While the onions are caramelizing, mix together your almond flour and mozzarella cheese in a pot. You'll need a double boiler for this, so heat up some water in a separate pan, and then put the second pot, with your almonds/cheese on top of the pan with water. Stir it frequently, the cheese will begin to melt. When you have the consistency of dough - you know its done. Take out and let it cook in a bowl for a few minutes.

Once it's cooled down. Lay it on some parchment paper. Take another piece of parchment paper and lay it on top. Roll it flat with a rolling pin.

On top of the dough, lay out your caramelized onion, bacon, herbs and cheese.

Take one end of the dough and slowly roll it like a pinwheel.

Once it's all rolled up, brush with butter, add some herbs and throw it in the oven at 350 for 25 minutes or until brown.


This makes 15 slices
