Fat Adapted Pizza

IMG_1850Here’s a recipe straight from Angie’s Fat Adapted Eating Plan where you learn to burn your fat as fuel!

This fat adapted pizza is so good 1/3 of it was gobbled before I could get my camera ready!

Just because you cut out grains doesn’t mean you can’t eat the foods you love. A cheese based crust can be used for pizza with delicious results. See the ingredients below!


1.5 cups shredded mozzarella
¾ cup almond flour
4 oz cream cheese
1 egg
Pizza sauce and additional cheese and toppings
Garlic salt
Parchment paper and cookie sheet

Put mozzarella and cream cheese in a greased saucepan and heat on low until just melted, stirring. Remove from heat and stir in egg & almond flour. Wet hands and spread “dough” thin on parchment paper (may want to use spatula). It should spread evenly with dough-like consistency (if “stringy” then your cheese has hardened too much—just put it back in the warming pan for another 20 seconds)-Dock (poke rows of holes) with a fork to avoid bubbling -Sprinkle with garlic salt. Bake in 400 degree oven for 8 minutes, check and poke holes where any large bubbles may be. Continue cooking for a total 10 min, or until slightly brown on top. Add a thin layer of pizza sauce, your desired amount of meats (pre-cooked), veggies, cheese, and then sprinkle on oregano and basil. Bake for another 5-10 minutes or just until cheese is melted. –Serves 4



One final word: The first time Angie tried to make this, the pizza stuck to the wax paper (not good). The next time she cooked the pizza at a lower heat and avoided this problem. Apparently wax paper can’t handle anything over 400 degrees. The almond flour crust is actually quite good. Top it like you would any other pizza. Enjoy.

    Ok, I think I am seriously making this tonight. My husband loves anything pizza flavored, and most of it is off limits now (pizza bagels, pizza flavored doritos, soughdough pizza, etc).

    This pizza is amazing, super easy and quick. My kiddos even asked for seconds. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us. I am 3 weeks into NSNG (thanks to you guys and some of your great podcast content). Keep the great recipes coming :).

    My husband made this for us and I almost cried from happiness. I hadn’t had guilt-free pizza EVER and it was DELICIOUS. I told him that we needed to make this a weekly thing. It acted like real pizza dough and it tasted like real pizza dough. I am already thinking of other toppings to add and even to add to the crust. Great recipe. Thanks.
