Fathead pizza is tasty, it's easy, and it mimics one of the most popular carby foods on the planet.
Therefore it (and its numerous slight variants) is also one of the most frequently reposted recipes on this sub.
I know I and many others have often wished for a less fathead-y feed for /r/ketorecipes, so I thought... "why not make one?"
You'll now notice a couple of changes:
The idea here is to not stifle newbies who want to be active in the sub, while still accommodating folks who have been doing the keto thing for a while, and don't care to see the umpteenth pizza post. Please feel free to make use of these new tag(s), and hopefully this enhances your experience with the community here.
My inspiration for this recipe was the cloud biscuit from fit men cook. I've manipulated it and experimented to come up with this. I love it for breakfast, as a snack, or as part of a meal.
10oz Almond flour 2 tbsp of baking powder 2 tsp of cayenne 1 tbsp garlic powder (optional) 1 tbsp onion powder (optional) 7oz of shredded sharp cheddar (could be 8oz) 8oz of shredded mild cheddar 2 tbsp of swerve (optional) 12.5 oz can of chunk chicken breast, drained or substitute shredded chicken breast about 9-10 oz 9oz of real bacon bits 2-4 Tbsp of diced jalapeno (depending on your taste) 3 large eggs 3/4 cup of heavy whipping cream
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Drain and flake the canned chicken with a fork.
In a separate bowl mix all of the following: almond flour, baking powder, cayenne, swerve, onion and garlic powder, and cheeses. Make sure to combine well.
Add chicken, bacon bits, & jalapeno to the dry mix and combine well.
Add the eggs and heavy whipping cream and mix until all ingredients are wet.
Divide the mixture into 12 equal parts. I used a 1/2 cup measuring cup to scoop roughly equal biscuits. Then form each scoop into a ball, and place on the lined cookie sheet. The process is similar to forming a meatball. Be careful not to over compress the biscuit. The balling is just to help keep them from falling apart completely when they bake.
Bake at 350 degrees for 22-25 minutes depending on your oven. Make sure the middle is cooked and not gooey. Biscuits will flatten some as they bake. Allow to cook at least partially on the cookie sheet to avoid the hot biscuits crumbling.

My wife and I tried these. They are very good. The mystery ingredient is beef gelatin.
When I punched in the numbers, they came out to 148 calories each, think about 2 net carbs. I have to make sure I just eat one.
The texture is like soft Chips Ahoy or soft cookies you buy at a bakery.
Now that I bought a bag of beef gelatin, I’m going to try it in a few other recipes.
Here is their recipe:

How do you deal with it?! I have made so many recipes with the stuff, and it's all gone into the trash. It's so salty! And gives off this cardboardy taste as well. I attempted that cinnamon swirl bread recipe, it was just inedible to me. Whenever I make a recipe that calls for coconut flour, it's all good. Although I can't find too many recipes that have that flour in it.
