What is Fathead Dough

Fathead or Fat Head (<-- our recipe for it) dough is a keto and low carb approved dough that takes the place of using traditional buns, breads and such. It is usually almond flour based and gluten free.  Melted mozzarella and cream cheese is used as the gluten. It is quite genius and has been known to be loved by even non keto eaters.
If you don't eat low carb, just use regular pizza dough. The recipe video below was made with regular pizza dough.
 
 
 

Meal Prep Pizza Burgers for the Week

Our pizza burger recipe makes a great addition to any meal prep plan. Whether you are eating low carb or just simply creating lunches and dinner for the week, meal prep can save time. To meal prep these burgers we recommend storing individually in zip top bag inside of your prep container. This will help to keep the dough from drying out or getting hard on top.

Reheating Pizza Burgers

If reheating your homemade pizza burgers from your meal prep container, we recommend taking it out of the zip top bag first. Place back in container, the cover on, but loose (tipped to the side works). Then, Microwave for 1 minute at a time until desired temperature is reached. 

Optional reheating instructions:

  1.  Remove from plastic storage bag, wrap loosely in damp paper towel, place on microwave safe plate. Reheat for 1 minute at a time. 
  2.  Place pizza burgers on cookie sheet and bake on 350 for 15 minutes. 

How To Keep Pizza Burger Crust Soft When Reheating

We have a few very easy kitchen tested way to keeping the crust soft. Ever notice that reheating pizza in the microwave makes it soggy or chewy? Yet, reheating in the oven can dry it out and make the crust hard

Our solution- 

Microwave-  Wrap the burger loosely in Damp Paper Towel OR Place a microwave safe cup of water inside while reheating.

Oven-  Water to create steam is keep to softening the pizza crust, or at the least to prevent it from hardening up.  Place an oven safe dish on the cookie sheet during the oven preheat time. When the oven is preheated place pizza burgers on the pan, leave the dish and return to the oven.

Notes

  • Pizza seasoning is AMAZING. I find it often at second stores like Christmas Tree Shops, Reny's and even Walmart and it is usually under $2! Substitute- Italian Seasoning.
  • Cooking Burgers- burger cooking time can vary. Although we prefer a medium cook, according to the USDA your burger is safely finished at 160 degrees internal temperature.
  • Pepperoni- Each burger gets 3 slices of Pepperoni inside and outside.
  • Nutrition information is calculated for the KETO AND LOW CARB VERSION.

  2. Hi. This sounds awesome!! Do you think I can substitute almond flour for coconut flour & if so can you provide measurements? I'm going to try the no bake keto cookies tomorrow. Love your recipes!

    • HI Ayah!

      Thank you so much <3

      We haven't made this recipe with any other flours so I can't say for sure, however you can simply follow a fathead recipe that uses your desired flour and just wrap your burger! 🙂
