Oat Fiber Fathead

Pizza Dough


You have probably heard of fathead dough by now, if not it is amazingly easy and is super versatile.  I played around with it quite a bit and this is how I make my pizza.  by subbing out oat fiber for almond flour you can take about half of the carbs out which means MORE slices.  Almond flour may be substituted just keep in mind that you will need to use 1-1/2 cups almond flour instead of the 1 cup of oat fiber.  

Prebaked Dough

Baked Pizza

Ingredients:

3 cups grated Mozzarella Cheese

2 T Olive oil

1 T butter

4 T cream cheese

1 cup Oat fiber

2 pinches salt

1 tsp italian seasoning

2 T Parmesan Cheese

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 package quick yeast (for flavoring)

1 T baking powder

1 egg yolk

 

Directions: preheat oven to 425

In a large microwaveable bowl, melt all ingredients together except egg yolk.  This will take about 4 minutes.  Make sure it is all melted and not stringy.  It should ball up smoothly like bread dough.  Quickly stir in egg yolk and roll out onto pizza pan.  I use a small pastry roller so that I do not burn my hands.   Bake for 10 minutes.  Remove and top with favorite keto toppings.  Place back into oven for 4-5 minutes until cheese is melted.  I use Mezzetta Pizza Sauce.  It is delicious and does not have sugar in it.  It is the lowest carb sauce I have found.   The alfredo sauce  is a good alternative  if you like white sauce.

You can use all almond flour but it will add an extra carb.  You could also use all oat fiber to reduce carbs by 2.

 

 

90 Second Bread

Low Carb Keto Breakfast Sandwich

I bought an egg mcmuffin sandwich maker years ago.  I have a double so I can make the family breakfast sandwiches in a shorter amount of time.  If you have one this is the easiest and fastest way to make these.  If not you need to fry your eggs first.  I also use a LARGE biscuit cutter to trim the 90 second bread so that it fits into the sandwhich maker.  

 

  • Blend 2 T Almond Flour , 1 T Oat fiber , 1 T Sour cream, ! T butter,  1/2 tsp baking powder, pinch of salt , 1 egg and a pinch of mozzarella cheese in a ramekin . 
  • Microwave for 90 seconds and dump out onto cooling rack.
  • Trim with biscuit cutter if needed
  • Slice
  • Place into sandwich maker or toast in skillet
  • Fill with Bacon or sausage, cheese and and an egg.

Strawberry Faux-Pretzel Salad~Keto
