For the Fathead Dough

  • 2 cups Mozzarella Cheese grated
  • cup Cream Cheese
  • 1 cup Almond Flour
  • 1 large Egg
  • ½ teaspoon Salt

For the Toppings

  • 1 ½ cups Ground Beef
  • 1 large Onion minced
  • ½ cup Tomato Puree
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon Cumin
  • teaspoon Cinnamon optional
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 2 tablespoon Grapeseed Oil


To make the Fathead Dough

  • Mix the mozzarella cheese with the cream cheese and almond flour in a microwave-safe mixing bowl. (If you are using a microwave oven for the recipe).
  • Microwave for 2 minutes on high, or use a sous vide* for 5-7 minutes.
  • Stir to incorporate the ingredients. Add the egg and season with salt.
  • Place the dough between two pieces or baking paper and roll with a rolling pin or a tall glass to make thin round pieces.
  • Place on a baking pan and set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 390°F.
  • *Sous Vide: Prepare a water bath by filling a pot with hot water. Bring to a gentle simmer. Place the ingredients you need to cook in a heatproof bowl, saucepan, or zip lock bag and place the bowl or bag in the simmering water.

To make the Lahmacun Toppings

  • Heat the oil in a pan and sauté the ground beef with the onions for 10 minutes, seasoning with salt, paprika, cumin and if using- cinnamon to taste. Add the tomato sauce and let it simmer for 1-2 minutes.
  • Spread the mixture on the fathead dough circles.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes until the edges of the dough turn golden brown.
  • Serve hot.
