Ingredients

Dough

  • 1 cup mozzarella, grated
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Filling

  • 10 Morning Star Sausage Links or any vegetarian sausage
  • 1 egg, beaten for the egg wash

Instructions

Make the Dough

  • Place the mozzarella and cream cheese in a bowl and cook in the microwave for 60 seconds. Give the mixture a quick stir and cook for another 30 seconds.
  • Stir well, and add the egg, almond flour, baking powder and garlic powder.
  • Mix until you have a dough mixture. Ensure that the dough is even in colour and there are no streaks of white.
  • Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm before rolling it out.

Make the Filling

  • Grill the sausages, turning over until they are an even colour for about 4-7 minutes or cook them in a frying pan.

Assemble

  • Roll out the Fathead dough in between two layers of parchment paper. Try to keep the shape an even square.
  • With a sharp knife cut out a large rectangle that would cover one of the sausage links. Place the sausage on the cut dough and roll until the sausage is evenly covered. Cut in half and place on a parchment lined baking tray.
  • Repeat for all the sausage links
  • Brush the pigs in a blanket with the egg wash
  • Bake for 20 minutes at 190C/370F degrees until the dough is golden and firm.
