Fattyhead Keto Pizza Crust is Coming!

Keto Flatbread Coming Soon!

I haven’t blogged in months, people, because lookie! I got licensed and insured and am officially in business to get a 2 net carb pizza crust…or flatbread…or wrap…into the market. It’s currently only available to people in Kansas City, as I am just now officially underway, but the goal is to get it picked up nationally and into stores…there are many steps to get there, but for now, I am so excited to get this Keto pizza crust out there for people who don’t have time to melt the cheese and make the mess at home. For updates, please like the Fattyhead Facebook Page. Cheers!


Sesame Garlic Fathead Crackers

Keto and low carbers often lament the loss of crunch in their altered eating choices. Socially, we like a little chip and dip action for game day, office parties, holiday gatherings, and rainy Sunday afternoons. A variation on the fathead dough so popular among Keto Warriors is the answer! Specifically, Laura’s KetoKrust concoction…these sesame garlic fathead crackers I just made! And low carb dips offer a healthy array of options, from guacamole dip to salsa to cream cheese and fondue dips.

Sesame Garlic Fathead Cracker Recipe

Ingredients: almond flour, egg, cream cheese, fresh mozzarella, sesame seeds, garlic, salt, pepper, milled flax seed (optional).

Step One

  1. In small saucepan, melt 2 T Kerrygold butter.
  2. Add 1/4 t minced garlic, 2 T sesame seeds. 1/4 t salt.
  3. Roast over medium low heat for 5 minutes. Set aside.

Step Two

  1. In medium saucepan over very low heat, melt 8 oz fresh mozzarella and 1T whipped cream cheese. Stir frequently until spoon moves easily through the cheeses
  2. Add 1 small egg, 3/4 C almond flour, 1/2 of the roasted sesame seeds, 1 T milled flax seed (optional). Stir well and let cool a few minutes.
  3. Between two pieces of parchment paper, roll out dough, no thicker than 1/4 inch.
  4. With a saute brush, top with remaining butter and sesame seeds. Top with fresh ground pepper.
  5. Use a knife or flat-edge spatula to separate dough into cracker shapes. A tiny separation is all that’s needed for the edges to brown. Use fork to poke holes in dough to prevent bubbles.

Step Three

  1. Bake at 380, for about 20 minutes. Less cooking time will make them softer like pita bread. More cooking time will add the crunch like crackers.
  2. Lower heat to 300 and bake for additional 10 minutes, depending on your preference.
  3. Let cool before separating. Use with your favorite dip!

Rice and bread and pasta! Those new to Keto long for substitutes for their favorite starch. Hemp hearts make a fantastic rice substitute! Versatile enough to add bulk to many dishes. The keto recipe below is a cooked rice-substitute dish, but cooking hemp hearts is not required. They can be added raw to any dish, sprinkled on salad even. Get creative.

Hemp Heart Rice Substitute Recipe

Sauté 1/2 small onion in 1T Kerrygold butter. Add 6T hemp hearts, 1/2 cup chicken stock, 4 oz cut chicken breast and cover for about 5 minutes. Then add 1 cup chopped spinach. I also threw in a few pine nuts. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Makes 2 servings.
