Pizza and Pastry Dough
This is our version of “fat head dough” for ketogenic therapies. A base dough recipe like this can be used a many ways! Although it can be a little tricky to work with, the results are very tasty. This type of dough has stretch and chewiness that other low carb dough recipes are not able to achieve. If it is stretched thin and baked in a hot oven, it will also have a crispy bottom. For pizza recipes, you may want to bake the dough first, then add additional toppings. For other recipes, such as the pictured hand pies, the dough and the fillings are baked together. Have fun and experiment! Macros reflect the entire batch of dough, divide accordingly.
Filling for Beef Curry Hand Pies: The delicious hand pies pictured are the result of a leftover pot roast! The filling includes, shredded cooked beef, cooked rutabaga, cooked onion, curry powder, and coconut oil.
Want to try an easier version of this recipe? Many years ago we developed our Flatbread recipe which uses the exact same ingredients but does not require melting the cheese. The results are just as delicious!
