All About Keto Egg Puff Pastry Crust

Even though “traditional” pastry puff dough is loaded with carbs, you can still enjoy egg puffs on keto diet thanks to the wonder that is Fathead crust!

Fathead crust is a keto “dough” made out of mozzarella, cream cheese, egg, and almond flour – ingredients that contain lots of healthy fats and nutrients to keep you satisfied!

This Fathead crust recipe can be used for pizzas, sandwiches, flatbreads, and even calzones – essentially anywhere you'd typically have bread.

Making the Dough Layer

Have you ever made a low-carb keto Fathead dough? If not, it is unbelievably easy!!

Simply microwave the cheeses until they are melted, then mix the melted cheese mixture with an egg and almond flour until a dough forms.

Knead the dough with your hands, spreading and folding it in half repeatedly until incorporated.

Roll out the dough between two layers of parchment paper.  Remove the top layer of parchment and then cut into 3.5-inch squares to place in your greased muffin tin.

That's it! It will look and taste just like “real” pastry puff dough!

Onto the Keto Egg Puff Filling

These keto egg puffs use asparagus, ham, Gruyere, and scallions but you can mix it up and use your own combination of veggies, cheese, and meat!

For these puffs, whisk together all the ingredients (except for the dill) in a bowl, then pour the egg mixture into the dough-lined muffin cups.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until the dough is golden brown and the center is thoroughly cooked.

Garnish with chopped dill and serve for a delicious brunch!

What Equipment You Need

Quick Keto Egg Puff Tips Before Your Get Started

  • Make sure to both knead and roll out your dough! Don't skip these steps.
  • The fathead dough may seem super gooey at first, but keep kneading it until you get a dough-like consistency. It takes a bit of practice, but once you get the hang of it it'll be super easy to make!
  • Finely chop up your filling ingredients (ham, Gruyere, scallions, and asparagus) so that they can fit into each muffin compartment and be mostly covered by the eggs. That way, the egg puffs will cook evenly and have enough flavor in each bite!
