Can we all agree that fathead dough is the best thing ever? There are so many variations on the basic ingredients (coconut or almond flour, mozzarella cheese, cream cheese, and eggs) and it can be used to make just about any bread-based food. Fathead pizza crust, donuts, bagels, biscuits… the list goes on!

(If you’ve never heard of fathead dough before, it originated in the popular pro-fat documentary, Fat Head.)

Thanks to fathead dough, today I am bringing you Keto Garlic Flatbread! With a few tweaks to the recipe and all the garlic bread additions, I’ve made garlic flatbread that you can pair with a keto-friendly “pasta” dish, dip in a keto-friendly sauce, or just enjoy it on its own. It makes a great side or appetizer and can be made with ingredients you likely already have in your kitchen.

Ingredients Needed to Make Keto Garlic Flatbread

Ingredient quantities are located in the recipe card at the end of the post.

Terrasoul Coconut Flour: Coconut flour is also frequently used in keto baked goods. This is a high-quality brand that I use in all of my recipes that call for coconut flour.

Swerve Confectioners Sugar Replacement: If you’re looking for a sugar substitute, you’ll love Swerve Confectioners! It uses (natural) sugar alcohols which have zero effect on blood sugar, meaning you can subtract them from the net carb count. (That gives Swerve zero net carbs.) It also measures just like sugar, so there isn’t any guessing about how much to use. I purchase the 48 oz. bags because they are convenient and a much better price per ounce than the 12 oz. bags.

Kitzini Silicone Baking Mats: Silicone baking mats are my baking BFF — they make clean-up a breeze when baking! This is optional but highly recommended. (You can also use parchment paper.)

Other ingredients:

  • Mozzarella cheese (shredded, low-moisture part-skim — this type will give the best results, and it’s also the standard kind of shredded mozzarella cheese you buy at the store)
  • Cream cheese
  • Large eggs
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • Butter
  • Baking powder
  • Salt
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder

How to Make Keto Garlic Flatbread

This is just a quick overview of how to make the flatbread. For the recipe in detail, scroll to the recipe card at the end of the post.

Preheat oven line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick silicone baking mat. TIP: I highly recommend using a silicone baking mat. Here is the silicone baking mat that I use.

Combine coconut flour, Swerve Confectioners, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl and set aside.

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Microwave for 45 seconds on high, then remove and stir. The mixture will not be fully combined at this point, but make sure to spread out the cream cheese as much as possible.

Return cheese and cream cheese to the microwave for another 45 seconds. Remove and stir again, fully combining the mixture as much as possible.

In another bowl, combine the eggs, whipping cream, and flour mixture. Then add the cream cheese/cheese mixture and knead with your hands until a dough forms. TIP: If the dough starts to stiffen, microwave again for a few seconds.

Looking for a Keto-Friendly Spaghetti or Marinara Sauce?

I used this awesome Thrive Market Organic Tuscan Pepper Spaghetti Sauce that I received as a FREE gift with my purchase! (I’d definitely buy it since it was only $4.99 for a whopping 25-oz. glass jar, far better than what I can find at the store.) It contains only 5g net carbs per 1/2 cup serving.

  • does it have a coconut taste.. i usually bake with almond flour. not a fan of coconut at all. could you use almond flour instead?

    • Hi Joanne! I don’t think it does, but I know some people are extra sensitive to the taste of coconut. If that’s you, it’s probably safer to do the almond flour version. To do that version, replace the coconut flour with 3/4 cup almond flour, and reduce the eggs down to one. Everything else stays the same. Enjoy!
