Keto Fathead Dough

Jan, 22, 2022

The Keto Fathead Dough is a must-try for all the people living low-carb. This is the almost-raw-material we need to make some of the yummy stuff. Think keto pizza, or keto Bagel Bites for example.

You will need only 5 ingredients and 15 minutes to make the keto Fathead Dough: then you will have the power in your hands, and decide what to make.

Please notice: in this dough there is quite a lot of Almond flour, and carbs easily add up in our day, so my tip is: enjoy life, eat yummy, but if you are trying to lose weight through keto, limit these preparations with almond flour.

I myself try to eat ketogenic without treats, but Duck, sometimes we deserve the treats!

Notes for the Keto Fathead Dough

The Ketogenic Fathead Dough is quite challenging to spread and work: don’t lose the hope, with the practice you will get there.

Before you start to make your preparations, you can let the fathead dough rest in the fridge, for about 30 minutes.
This is not always necessary, but can be useful for the recipes when you have to work the dough a little bit more.

You can also prepare the dough and use it in a few days: but store it in the fridge, to preserve its freshness. Don’t keep it in the fridge for more than 2 days, because it will get dry, and difficult to work.
