Keto fathead focaccia with olives and tomatoes is the best Mediterranean keto bread you can have! Olives, tomato and parmesan cheese on top in combination with aromatic Mediterranean herbs are delicious.

I love dipping this low carb fathead focaccia into the olive oil. That’s one of my favorite keto snacks or keto bread appetizer.

If you’re saving your carbs for a glass of good red wine, this is ideal recipe for you! Prepare some extra virgin olive oil, olives, maybe some anchovies or prosciutto, few slices of hard cheese and enjoy like never before.

This is a perfect movie night keto snack and ideal choice for romantic keto dinner!  Also, if you roll it thinner, this keto dough could be wonderful keto pizza crust.

This is one of the easiest keto bread recipes and you can make it without any special effort, especially if you have a microwave. 


Fathead dough is easy to prepare. Just combine shredded mozzarella in a microwave safe bowl with almond flour or blanched almond meal, coconut flour, pinch of salt, baking powder, olive oil, garlic powder and Mediterranean herbs like basil and oregano and microwave on high per instructions below.

Stir everything with a fork or a spoon and repeat the procedure. After repeating try to knead the dough. If it’t still not melted enough to prepare the dough, repeat the procedure once more. Try kneading, if it’s easy to knead, add one large egg and knead until you get a nice dough.

Roll the dough onto the sheet pan layered with a parchment paper. You can easily roll it between two layers of a parchment paper or with just spread it with your hands.

When your keto dough is rolled, press it gently with your fingers on top to get the small hollows on top. Drizzle with some nice olive oil, sprinkle with salt and Mediterranean herbs and distribute cherry tomatoes cut in halves and olives. I love using green and black or kalamata olives. When you mix it like that, taste is the best!

Sprinkle everything with a generous layer of parmesan cheese and bake in a preheated oven on 180 C/350 F for 20 minutes or until baked.

I love serving this fathead focaccia with olive oil for dipping. Of course, it goes perfectly with prosciutto, anchovies, hard cheese, more olives and tomato. I love to enjoy it with a little glass of red wine, so if you are not completely alcohol-free, this is a perfect recipe to enjoy with a glass of red wine.

Definitely try this delicious keto bacon bread. This is one of my favorite keto breakfasts besides eggs and bacon. I have one more really delicious recipe for unusual low carb bread with zucchini and cheese. That’s one of my favorite go to recipes when I crave bread. You really don’t taste zucchini, but they give the best texture to this keto bread and make it soft and moist.
