Mozzarella Dough (FatHead Dough) Cheesy Garlic Bread (keto garlic bread)

One night (last week?) I made a pizza for dinner and opted to use the second part of the dough to make cheesy garlic bread sticks.  Hardly needs a recipe, but more of a 'reminder' to myself to make these again soon as I browse through my site when I'm pondering "what do I make for dinner tonight?"

These are keto, low carb and sugarfree.  ANY of your favorite 'mozzarella dough' or sometimes known as 'fathead dough' recipes will work.  So many little variations of the recipe but if you have a favorite, just use that one.

Cheesy Keto Garlic Bread

1 recipe mozzarella dough (use half for a pizza and half for garlic bread sticks!)
a handful of shredded cheddar
a handful of shredded mozzarella
2 T fresh minced garlic (or as much or little as you like)
1 t garlic salt
1/2 t dried oregano or Italian seasoning
2-3 T real butter (or as much/little as you like)

Preheat your oven to 400.  Roll or spread your dough out on parchment to a rectangle or square shape.
Prebake it (on the parchment) on a pizza baking sheet or a pizza stone (I use a stone) for about 6-8 minutes until it's firming up and turning golden on the edges.  Remove and flip it over, still keeping it on parchment. 

Spread butter over it, top with fresh garlic and sprinkle with garlic salt and Italian seasoning or oregano.  Sprinkle cheddar and mozzarella over the top and pop it back into the oven, still on parchment, to finish baking about 5 more minutes or until the cheese melted, the edges are golden and it's done to your desired crispness and coloring.

Use a pizza cutter to slice into bread sticks or squares to serve. 


If you don't know what a mozzarella dough or fathead dough is - or you don't have a recipe for one, here is one of my mozzarella/fathead doughs from almost 4 years ago, in the spring of 2019.  You can find it at the post I did on keto hot dog buns:


Low Carb Hot Dog Buns and Hamburger Buns 
(A Fathead Dough Style Recipe)

1 1/2 c mozzarella cheese
2 oz. cream cheese
1 egg
1 1/4 c almond flour
*optional - 2 T oat fiber 500 or unflavored, no carb whey protein powder
1 T baking powder
*optional - 1/2 t xanthan gum

Microwave the mozzarella and cream cheese until melted.  Place in the bowl of a food processor with 1 egg and the dry ingredients.  I like to add the oat fiber and xanthan gum but if you don't have it, that's fine.  Many people don't use it theirs although I feel like the texture and height is better when I use them.

Process just until the dough comes together, then stop.  Wrap the dough in plastic and pop it into the freezer while you preheat your oven to 400.

Line your baking pan/sheet with parchment.  Spray or oil your hands and divide your dough into about 5-6 pieces.  Form into balls for buns or 'logs' for hotdog buns.  Bake at 400 for approximately 12 minutes until raised and golden brown.  Cool before splitting and using.
