Thin-Crust Fathead Pizza Dough


  • 2 teaspoons yeast
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 ½ cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


  • Step 2

    Dissolve yeast in warm water in a bowl. Set aside for about 5 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Place mozzarella cheese into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 90 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds until cheese is completely melted. Stir in yeast mixture and egg and stir to combine; mixture will not incorporate well at this point.

  • Step 4

    Stir in almond flour, xanthan gum, and salt. If mixture is difficult to mix, reheat in the microwave for 20-30 seconds to soften the cheese. Stir again until well incorporated. Using your hands, knead the dough for 2 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Place dough on baking sheet and press with your fingers into a thin crust, approximately 11-12 inches in diameter.

  • Step 6

    Bake in the preheated oven until crust is lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven, top with your favorite pizza toppings, and return to the oven for 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
