  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3/4 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons water (warm, ~110F, for dissolving yeast)
  • 2 large eggs (warm, ~110F, for dissolving yeast)
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour (warm, ~110F, for dissolving yeast)


  • Instructions Preheat oven to 375F.
  • Prepare a baking pan by covering with parchment paper or a baking mat.
  • Sift together dry ingredients (almond flour, xantham gum, baking powder, salt, garlic powder).
  • Add yeast to warm water and allow to dissolve, stirring to break up any clumps.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, combine mozzarella, cream cheese, and butter.
  • Microwave for 60-90 seconds, or until cheese is melted.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Add dry ingredients, egg, and yeast mixture to melted cheese mixture and mix well until dough forms a ball.
  • Turn dough onto a flat surface sprinkled with the coconut flour and knead gently, 15-20 times.
  • Optional: For fluffier dough balls, cover the dough with a damp cloth and allow to rise in a warm place for ~10 minutes.
  • Divide dough into approximately 15 evenly sized portions and roll each into a ball.
  • Beat remaining egg and use it to coat each of the dough balls.
  • Optionally, sprinkle with seasoning, sea salt, or other toppings.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown.
