Fat Head Pizza

By February 12, 2018July 6th, 2023Main Dish


Valentine’s Day Pizza

Even on vacation, I am always working. I actually feel a little lost without a project to work on. I must be crazy, but I signed another book contract for a Keto Instant Pot cookbook (with slow cooker directions).

I went back to look at my slow cooker cookbook that I wrote 7 years ago, I had to stop and read my dedication page and I wanted to share with all of you how far we have come…

“I want to dedicate this book to you, yes you. It is because of you and your support that has made this all possible. About 4 months after we adopted our baby boys, my husband, Craig, lost his job. We kept this secret for awhile… it was such a scary time for us and Craig didn’t want to feel like he was failing his family. But thanks to all of you, my boys have the best stay-at-home dad EVER! It is because of all of
your support with purchasing my books and pantry items from my shopping affiliates (click HERE to see) that helps keep us going.
I once heard someone say, “If you want to hear God laugh, tell him what you have planned!” That statement couldn’t have been more true for the past few years of my life. I was totally a planner, and the
more I tried to control how things happened, the more frustrated I got. All of the trials I have gone through helped push me in the right direction to my nutrition business.Thank you… thank you …. thank you…. from Maria, Craig, Micah and Kai!”

Calories 203



  • 1 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/8 teaspoon Redmond Real salt


  • Marinara Sauce Click HERE
  • Favorite Pizza Toppings olives, peppers, onions, mushrooms, pepperoni, sausage, etc


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • To make the dough, place the mozzarella and the cream cheese in a heat safe bowl and microwave for 1-2 minutes or until the cheese is entirely melted. Stir well.
  • Add the almond flour, egg and salt and using a hand mixer, combine well.
  • Place a greased piece of parchment paper on a pizza stone (or cookie sheet, but a pizza stone will bake the bottom better). Put the dough on the greased piece of parchment paper and pat out with your hands to make a large heart shape (for Valentine's Day).
  • Spread pizza sauce all over the top of the crust and mozzarella cheese and your favorite toppings.
  • Transfer the pizza to the hot pizza stone in the oven by sliding the parchment and pizza o the baking sheet onto the stone. Bake the pizza until the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. Remove the pizza from the oven and garnish with black olives and fresh herbs if desired!
  • Store extras in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat slices on a baking sheet in a preheated 350°F oven for 5 minutes or until warmed through.

    Can’t wait to try this! How many servings does it make and what is the nutritional information?

  • Marisa says:

    Congrats on your success! This Bible verse came to mind: A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.
    Proverbs 16:9.

    I am so happy to hear that you are working on an IP Keto cookbook! This is the next type of cookbook we need to get into our kitchen as I am new to using an IP and have been disappointed to with the slow cook feature. Please don’t forget to include dairy-free recipes. 😉

  • Randa Sharpe says:

    Can’t wait to try. I love that the Fat Head Pizza post and St. Valentine Pizza recipe came out on Fat Tuesday!!!! Perfect timing, Maria.

  • Tabitha says:

    I have a power pressure cooker. Hopefully the instructions will have a conversion chart for this too. Love your books! Cannot wait!

  • BGail says:

    I will totally buy your keto IP cookbook! Keep up the awesome contributions! Your name is standard in the Keto world, which is pretty incredible, right?

  • Haha, since I’m single I probably be crying and eating this delicious pizza. Who’s with me!?

  • Linda says:

    Bought your new book, “Keto” on kindle. Could not put it down. I have had several ah-ha moments while reading it. And I am glad to see my New Year’s resolution of no alcohol is vindicated. I have been in a rut for several months at the end of 2017. Up a pound, down a pound. I am a post-menopausal 57 year old. On the whole, I feel great but want to take my keto healing and weight loss to the next level. Because of your book I have realized where I was sabotaging myself. Your “Comfort Foods” cookbook came in the mail yesterday. Looking forward to the weekend and cooking. Thanks so much for all the information.

  • Mavis Wood says:

    Looks like I need to be buying an Instant Pot.

  • Liz Bray says:

    We’ve been doing Keto for six or eight months, before that, very low carb, but basically Paleo using honey and maple syrup and coconut sugar. I have been a Personal Chef since 2002 so I love studying research on food and healthy eating trends. I’ve been so happy to find YOU, and I think I’ve bought all your books and keep my head in them. My husband has done so well, losing the 20 pounds he needed to, will have a physical next week, and I’m excited to see if he gets off his BP meds. For me, I’ve always had stomach issues so I’m still searching, but I’m determined to make Keto work for the health benefits! I’ve used the Fagor Pressure Cooker since 2002, have taught many cooking classes and wrote my cookbook, so it’s exciting that you’re going to write a pressure cooker Keto book. We are seriously considering Ketocon! Thanks for all you do to help people get healthy!

  • Gina Cincotta says:

    I think that’s God’s design, we think we are helping ourselves when we give however we are receiving so much so it’s a perfect circle Or maybe it’s the shape of a HEART cuz there are some detours and corners….. LOL I think GOD has a sense of humor alright !

    Thank you Craig and Maria for reaching out to help in such an important aspect of life – HEALTH !!!!! God Bless the Emmerich Family <3

    The testimpny above is INSPIRATIONAL- she's just BEAUTIFUL !!! thanks for sharing

  • sylvia arsenault says:

    week 4 of my Keto lifestyle. i love every part except one. finding it REALLY hard to get enough fruits and veggies. I use to eat tons of ALL fruits and veggies and as a result, had no bowel issues…. now. finding myself taking Metamucil to keep me regular. The food is keeping me very saturated, so eating veggies is challenging. I am jusst not hungry…. and I do miss my fruits. what am I doing wrong?

  • KFerr says:

    Is the nutrition information just for the fat head dough or for the whole pizza?

  • Ginger says:

    I have 4 of your cookbooks and Keto book. I use them all, great job. I do a lot of cooking in my IP also and can hardly wait till your new cookbook come out for IP. I have learned a lot from your Keto book.
    It is so nice to find someone who knows so much about Keto dieting. Thanks.

  • Kathy says:

    Can’t wait for the new Keto Instant Pot cookbook!!! I purchased one recently but i5s not fully Keto. When do you expect it out? I have many of yours and just need a vacation to get working on making so many foods!!! Thank you!

  • Dawn Everson says:

    Hi Maria,
    Can you Freeze the Orange cream shake? I want to prepare as much as I can ahead of time for the 7 day weight loss meal plan in you quick and easy ketogenic cook book but I’m not sure what will be ok frozen.

  • Julie says:

    Hi, Maria. I made this pizza yesterday and though your recipe does not state to bake the crust before adding the toppings, I thought I’d err on the side of caution and prebake it. Is this an unnecessary step? I’ll definitely be making this pizza again … thank you!

  • Cherise McClimans says:

    Fathead pizza is like my favorite thing ever! I use the crust in a million different ways. I’ve even used it for crackers, “cinnamon rolls”, calzones, chicken hand pies, so versatile and amazing!
