I want to preface this by saying that the Fathead Pizza Crust is not my original recipe, though I wish that it was. This recipe was kindly provided by Tom’s older brother’s oldest son over at fathead-movie.com. If you haven’t heard about the Fat Head Movie, you must be living under a rock (and that’s okay!). I invite you to check out the movie and all of the wonderful information on the Fat Head website.
Over the years, I’d like to think I’ve developed a certain knack for all things pizza. I mean, have you tried my Zesty Pizza Dip? I really could eat it every single day of my life. And some weeks I have. I ain’t afraid to admit it.
But something glorious happened one day when I was nearly at my wits end with an extreme pizza craving. I stumbled upon the Fathead Pizza Crust and my life forever changed. While it may seem a little daunting, the crust is comprised of just a handful of ingredients to mimic a real pizza crust. In fact, you probably have a lot of these in your pantry and refrigerator already!
As I tend to do with almost every recipe, I added some ingredients to appeal more to my personal tastes. Notably, the addition of oregano and nutritional yeast has been an awesome combination. The oregano adds a really nice burst of authentic Italian taste and the nutritional yeast adds an additional layer of cheesy flavor. In the past, I’ve added oat fiber which will make the dough more biscuit-like. I really like the flavor of the oat fiber, but I am all about a nice crispy crust!
Finally, let’s not forget about the toppings. Personally, I love a traditional pepperoni pizza. Mushrooms, too. I’ve done a ton of variations including Buffalo Chicken, Taco, Philly Cheese Steak and more — all with the Fathead pizza crust!
