This flatbread recipe actually originated after a very happy accident, when Joe was making a fathead pizza and forgot to add an egg or any baking soda. It didn’t rise at all, but that didn’t stop it from being absolutely delicious!

We first published this variation on fathead dough for our spiced beef with tzatziki sauce. That’s another great recipe, just with a different flavor profile.

On a recent trip to the grocery store, we decided it was time to develop another flatbread recipe–one that had amazing flavors and would remind you of something you might find in a restaurant.

The result tastes as amazing as it smells!

What ingredients do you need to make this recipe?

The ingredients list is really simple, and like I mentioned, it doesn’t even have an egg. All you’ll need is:

Almond Flour
Shredded Mozzarella
Cream Cheese
Baby Spinach
Basil Pesto
Parmesan Cheese (for topping, optional)
Red Pepper Flakes (for topping, optional)

Keto Spinach Pesto Flatbread Nutrition

It’s important to remember that cheese does have carbs. That’s one reason we didn’t top this flatbread with even more cheese. But it works out really well considering the flatbread IS cheese. Feel free to adjust to fit your macros, though!

This Keto Spinach Pesto Flatbread is an amazingly flavorful appetizer, or quick and easy lunch. It's the perfect low carb replacement for your restaurant favorite!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 16 minutes
Total Time 21 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup of Almond Flour
  • 2 1/2 Cups of Shredded Mozzarella
  • 2 Ounces of Cream Cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons of Basil Pesto
  • 1 Cup of Chopped Baby Spinach
  • Red Pepper Flakes, for topping, optional
  • Shredded Parmesan, for topping, optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix almond flour, shredded mozzarella and cream cheese. Microwave for one minute or until melted and able to be easily mixed.
  3. Using a spoon or rubber spatula, mix ingredients until ball forms. When dough has cooled enough for you to handle, wet hands with a bit of water and pick up dough ball. Form it until smooth and all ingredients are fully combined. (If your dough is too stiff or will not spread, it may be too cold. Place it back in the microwave for 5-10 seconds and it should be easier to spread)
  4. Use hands to flatten dough thinly across parchment lined baking sheet. Bake dough for 6 minutes or until slightly browned.
  5. Take dough out of the oven and evenly spread it with besto and spinach. Sprinkle red pepper flakes for a little kick!
  6. Return dough to oven and bake for an additional 16 minutes or until edges of dough are golden brown. Remove from oven and sprinkle with shredded Parmesan for serving.

OMG! This was so good. I cut it into 8 pieces and my twin grandsons each wanted a slice. Guess what? They enjoyed it too. It's now a regular part of my Keto colection.

Is this doable with only an oven toaster around?

This was fantastic. I doubled it. I am now freezing the cooked crust and experimenting, using as a pizza crust.

This is yummy!!! Not sure if it was due to the fact that I weighed all my ingredients instead of measuring, but it came together like a dream! It wasn't even necessary to wet my hands when forming into a ball. This completely satisfied my pizza craving to boot. Hubby was away, so I served a slice up on a plate with two crispy fried, over-easy eggs and some undressed arugula. It was delicious and I'm already planning on heating a slice up in the toaster oven and having it for breakfast tomorrow morning as well!
