Keto Sausage Pinwheels


Fathead Dough

  • 2 ½ cups Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
  • 1 ¼ cups Finely Ground Almond Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Egg


  • 1 lb Sausage, ground
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese



  1. Add ground sausage into skillet and brown. Drain excess grease.

  2. Add in the block of cream cheese and mix well. Set aside.

Fathead Dough

  1. Add mozzarella cheese into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second increments until cheese is completely melted. (Approximately 2 minutes)

  2. Add egg into melted cheese and mix well.

  3. Add almond flour and baking powder. Mix together then knead with hands until the dough is well combined. (Tip: Wet your hands with water or olive oil if the dough is sticking to your hands)

Making the Sausage Pinwheels

  1. Layout a piece of parchment paper and spray a little olive oil on it to prevent sticking. Put fathead dough on parchment paper and flatten it into a large rectangle.

  2. Spread filling across the entire rectangle of dough leaving about 1 inch of space around the long edge of the dough.

  3. Start at the long edge and gently roll the dough into a tight roll.

  4. Place the rolled dough into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour to chill. This will allow the dough to hold better when sliced.

  5. Remove from fridge and preheat oven to 350 Degrees

  6. Use a sharp knife and cut the roll into 1-inch sections and place on greased cookie sheet.

  7. Place in 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes or until the dough is golden brown in color.
