Making Fathead Dough

Who knew that there were so many variations of this one recipe. Fathead dough, sometimes it’s even called Fathead Pizza Dough, Keto Dough, low carb dough. I honestly didn’t realize that everyone had their own recipe. But I should have, I change almost every recipe I come across and this one was no different. But my quest was to find a simple recipe. I finally did. Thanks to the folks over at Twisted Keto.

Keto Chili Pockets – made with Twisted Keto Fathead Dough


This recipe is so easy! No really, even if you change nothing, you will not only find it simple to make but super tasty. I only added a couple of ingredients, spices, because of my flavour pallet.


  • Mozzarella Cheese (use a scale and weigh out 10 oz)
  • Almond Flour (use a scale and weigh out 5 oz)
  • Egg (1)
  • Baking Powder (1) Teaspoon

What I added

When mixing the almond flour and the baking powder, I adding the the following:

  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning

What I make with Fathead Dough

I ended up making two recipes with this one batch: Keto Chili Pockets and mini pizzas. I had some left over Butter Bob’s Chili, you can find a link to this post here and wanted to find a new way to eat it. So I made the fathead dough and separated it into 9 equal parts. The first six were used to make these pockets:

I saved three of the flattened dough balls for a snack later in the evening. PIZZA!!! We love pizza and these made the perfect snack. Once flattened for the pockets, I stored these in the fridge, separated with parchment, until I was ready to make the next recipe. See how easy and fast it was to make three Keto Snack Pizzas:

In my TikTok video you will see that I use this awesome cast iron press, makes it easy to evenly flatten dough for making empanadas, stuffed pockets or mini pizza’s.

Also, when making Keto recipes, I find that exact measurement are key to successful baking. This is the scale that I have, so easy to use and very accurate. As I mentioned above, I weighed my full batch of dough, then easily divided it up. Weighing each ball to ensure that all the pockets/pizzas were the same size.

  1. 1 cup all-natural peanut butter
  2. 1/3 cup coconut oil
  3. 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  4. 1/2 tsp liquid stevia
  1. First, spray a mini cupcake tin with nonstick cooking spray or line with mini cupcake liners.
  2. Next, place drippy peanut butter and melted coconut in a medium-size bowl and mix. Then, add cocoa powder and liquid stevia and mix until combined.
  3. Using a teaspoon as your scoop, spoon about 3 heaping teaspoons of the mixture into each mini cupcake tin. Repeat until mixture is gone. You should get about 24 fat bombs.
  4. Option to swirl in a little more drippy peanut butter for show and a sprinkle of sea salt.
  5. Place in the freezer for 1-2 hours or until completely frozen. Once frozen, remove from mini cupcake tin and store in a freezer-safe plastic bag in the freezer.
  1. Peanut butter, try to use a thin kind, not too thick.
  2. If you want to substitute granular sweetener, which I have done successfully, replace the 1/2 tsp of liquid with 1/2 cup of granular.
  3. 1 Net Carb each. Subtract the sugar and the fibre. There is no sugar (the recipe card doesn't recognize swerve as a sweetener).
