Keto Garlic Bread (fathead dough)

Katrin Nürnberger from sugarfreelondoner.com
You've gotta try this Keto garlic bread. It's made with a simple almond flour fathead dough - and it's sensationally good. Crispy on the outside, soft and pillowy in the inside!

For the Dough

  • 1 ½ cups pre-shredded mozzarella (175g)
  • 1 egg medium
  • ¾ cup fine almond flour (80g) add 2 extra tablespoon if using ground almonds
  • 2 tablespoon cream cheese
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

For the garlic butter

  • 1 tablespoon butter melted
  • 1 small clove garlic finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley finely chopped
  • pinch of sea salt


  • Pre-heat oven to 180 Celsius/360 Fahrenheit.
  • Melt the mozzarella and cream cheese in a non-stick pot over a low heat, stirring continuously. Alternatively, heat in a microwave (1 ½ minutes, stirring half way through). Take off the stove and/or make sure the cheese is melted, but not bubbling.
  • Stir in the egg, almond flour and baking powder. Start to combine using a fork, then use your hands to knead into a ball of smooth dough. This can be easier if you lightly oil your hands first.
  • Place onto a baking tray lined with baking paper and roll out into a flatbread shape. You can do this by either oiling a roller or by rolling the dough between two sheets of parchment paper.
  • Bake 17 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • In the meantime, chop garlic and parsley and melt butter. Mix and spread over the flatbread
  • Return to the oven for another 3-5 minutes. Cover with aluminium foil if the top gets too brown.
  • Cut into slices and serve
