    I love fathead pizza too! Better than traditional pizza in my opinion. Low carbing has made my cooking way more interesting and experimental than it ever was before :)

    I have never understood the fascination with pizza. It isn't something I have eaten. I found it boring. I'm one of those weirdos that likes all my food items separate on a plate, not all mixed together.

    I’ve never understood the fascination with trying to invent substitutes for food.

    A pizza is made on a dough base.

    Rice is rice.

    Trying to invent substandard imitations seems bonkers to me.

    I can’t eat Pizza, I can’t eat Rice. I’m comfortable with that and won’t waste precious time and energy trying to pretend I can have them.

    OK, so I've looked up this fat head dough and can only find recipes where you have to microwave at certain stages in the assembly process. I've never had a microwave. Does anyone make this without using one? Can you direct me to a recipe?

    I love pizza and either miss it or make it and suffer the fall-out at the moment.

    The fathead dough is a trifle lardy, even for me! So now I make it using my 90 second microwave bread recipe, but bake it instead in an 8” springform tin.

    60g almond flour or ground almonds
    2 beaten eggs
    Seasoning and herbs to taste

    Just mix the ingredients and pour into the tin, and bake at 180C until it’s cooked but not brown. Take off the sides, top the pizza and cook as normal.

    @britishpub substitutes don’t have to be substandard :)
