Keto Focaccia Bread

Fathead focaccia.jpeg

Another delicious recipe made by my sister, Momma Low Carb. This focaccia bread is made out of fat head dough. Fat head dough is a pretty incredible low carb recipe that produces a multi-purposed dough that very closely mimics regular dough. The only problem with this recipe is that it involves a lot of dairy. For this reason this recipe should be used as a treat, not as a staple in your diet. Also worth mentioning is that there is some lunch meat being used in this recipe. Many lunch meats are highly processed which is another reason to limit this recipe but there are better lunch meat brands out there that are not as processed and these make the best option if possible!
