What is Fat Head dough?

It is low in carbs and naturally gluten-free and can be made with almond flour or coconut flour.

- Egg – this can be omitted if you have an egg allergy and want to make an egg-free pizza crust recipe.
How to make keto tortillas
To make the Fat Head tortillas, you simply make the Fat Head dough, but instead of adding herbs such as rosemary or other pizza flavours, I added 1 teaspoon of dried coriander/cilantro, 1 teaspoon of cumin powder, and a good pinch of chili to the Fat Head pastry mix.
Remove from the oven and with kitchen scissors or a sharp knife, cut the Fat Head pastry into triangle tortilla shapes, then pop them back on the baking tray one last time to really crisp up.
TOP TIP – keep a watchful eye on the tortilla chips as they cook. It will only take a minute or two before they are ready. Make sure they don’t burn. It is better to eat a slightly soft tortilla chip than a burnt one.
What’s the difference between nachos and tortillas?
Tortillas are chips and a popular snack by themselves. When they are covered with a meat sauce, sour cream, guacamole, and cheese, they are known as nachos.
The best keto nacho toppings
This really is when you can go crazy and add as many variations to the nacho toppings that will fit within your daily carb limit.
The most popular nacho toppings are meat sauce, avocado, salsa, sour cream, and melted cheese. The toppings are really what brings Fat Head nachos to life and adds so much color, texture, and flavor.
If you want your meat sauce or your tortilla chips to be mild, just add less chili than suggested in the recipe.
You can add more chili powder, sliced jalapenos, red hot chili sauce (with no added sugars), and even some chipotle Tobasco too.
If you have accidentally added too much chili, serve your meal with extra sour cream, extra cheese, and extra mild guacamole. This will help to dilute the spiciness of your meal.
They need to be cooked on both sides. Make sure they are spaced out evenly on your baking tray or cookie sheet when baking so they all cook to become crispy and golden brown.
I split my avocados down the belly, not down the center. The avocado stone will pop straight out and scooping out the avocado flesh is really easy. I have an avocado tree in my backyard and harvest at least 50 avocados each year, so I know this technique is the best (and easiest).
You can add dried cumin, dried coriander, and chili powder, or you can make your own homemade low-carb taco seasoning spice mix.
