a low carb pizza topped with mozzarella and salami and a hand taking a slice

Low Carb Pizza

This easy low carb pizza has a simple mozzarella dough crust with coconut flour and psyllium husk. Unlike in the original Fat Head recipe, there's no need to heat the mozzarella!

For the Dough

For the Topping


  • Preheat the oven to 200 Celsius / 392 Fahrenheit. 
  • Put the mozzarella, coconut flour, psyllium husk, egg and salt in a blender/food processor. Blend until you have a smooth dough.
  •  Grease your hands with olive oil and form 2 dough balls.
  • Roll out the dough between 2 sheets of baking paper. 
  • Bake your pizza crust for 7 minutes until slightly browned. 
  • Remove from the oven and spread with Marinara Sauce. (see notes)
  • Decorate with a bit of mozzarella (parmesan would work here too), pepperoni slices and some fresh basil. Return to the oven for another 6 minutes.  
  • Enjoy!


I used psyllium husks, NOT psyllium husk powder. If you want to use fine psyllium husk powder, halve the amount as it's much more absorbent.
