Fathead dough is a popular low carb dough that has revolutionized pizza. It is used in many savory and sweet applications like these keto fathead sugar cookies.
If you’re new and haven’t heard of it- let me introduce you… Fathead dough started with pizza. A low carb or keto way to get your pizza fix in far less than carbs than normal pizza crust. We are talking like maybe 2 net carbs per slice compared to about 40.
Since fathead worked out so well for pizza, people like myself have experimented to see what other applications we can use it in, both sweet and savory. Fathead dough uses a melted mixture of cream cheese and mozzarella to create the gluten missing from low carb flour such as almond flour. It helps give a more realistic texture that holds up instead of crumbling.
This keto fathead “sugar” cookie recipe worked out beautifully. It has the soft, buttery texture of regular sugar cookie dough and I bet could even be rolled out and used with cookie cutters!
