One of the first uses for FatHead dough was pizza. And of all the recipes I've worked on recently – it's one of the few things I haven't made! If you want to know more about FatHead dough, check out my Ultimate Guide:
However, I decided to make a white pizza instead of a tomato one. It uses a version of my low carb white sauce – so if you want to know more about it then check out my recipe for more details.
The downside to the white sauce is that it's fairly high in fat compared to a tomato sauce (although lower in carbs), so when you add it to the FatHead dough pizza crust, the whole thing is seriously low-carb-high-fat! I've suggested that a serving size for this pizza is a quarter of the pizza, because of that. If you're enjoying it with fellow keto followers, then you could divide it two or three ways instead. But if serving it for a lunch for four, you'll still find it pretty filling, just add a side salad to round things out a little.

How to Make Low Carb White Pizza with Chicken and Spinach
Once you have made the FatHead dough, press it into a circle on a non-stick pizza pan. From one batch of dough I can make a 10″ pizza. Use a fork to dock holes in the dough to help it cook evenly.
Cook in a preheated oven for 5-7 minutes, until it starts to turn light golden brown all over.
Meanwhile, make the white pizza sauce by combining cream cheese, heavy cream and water in a small saucepan. You could also add some garlic to the sauce if you like! Cook until the cream cheese has melted, then add a little grated Parmesan to thicken the sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Spread the sauce over the partly cooked pizza base.
Add some cooked chicken and fresh baby spinach leaves, then return the pizza to the oven and cook for another 5 minutes or until the chicken has warmed through. Garnish your low carb white pizza with fresh basil and extra black pepper.
Serve with your favorite side salad!
