    Hejscully us American's watching what we put in our mouths and taking great care of our health are smart enough to know how to Google the weight measurements. I made this keto bread and it was amazing. It was also accurate.

    The flavor was good but more like a cheesy, flatbread. Mine did not raise. Next time I would use half the salt and not melt the cheese. I think it would mix better not melted. Also, it does not need to cook for 12 mins the first time and then baked again.

    Dear Beauty Pursued,

    Thank you so much for the clarification (and the website.) As an American getting used to grams because I like the idea and I bought a scale that measures in ounces or grams, I. too, have been confused by the ml usage for solid ingredients. I feel pretty silly for not having googled it myself. Thanks, again.

    So according to this , 100 ml of water is 100 grams ,but so is 100 ml of gold 100 grams ? That's nonsense .. Not all liquids have same mass and therefore same weight. Just saying..

    Awful. How can you put a load of mozzarella on a heat source and stir occasionally??? This went from sticky gooey mess to WET sticky gooey mess. I ended up dumping a load more almond flour into it to try and not have it just be a lump of mozzarella cheese. It's in the oven now and it still looks like lump of mozarella cheese.
    Please, please, please will you check this recipe again and even better do a video so those of us who are not getting anything like the results in the photo can see where we're going wrong.
    Will be searching the internet for other recipes.

    This is the most amazing delicious thing ever! definitely recommend

    Unfortunately cheese, which I love, is a migraine trigger did for me so I cannot eat it at all! 🥺 Does the recipe work if you leave the cheese out? Or is it used to glue it together? Or for consistency or taste? In Australia we can buy packets of grated mozzarella. I make the keto recipes with cheese for my husband and leave it out for me. I do miss it.

    Unfortunately the cheese is an integral ingredient in this dish.

    LOVE this bread. I follow the recipe through step 5, but I **don't** put the garlic butter. Instead, I use this as a pizza crust. So you take it out after the first bake, put on your favorite keto-friendly pizza toppings, then do the second bake. OMG - it's the best! And yeah, to echo other comments, don't "stir occasionally." Stay with that lump of cheese until you can get all the other stuff mixed in. Use a wooden spoon and you're good to go.

    I didn’t catch cooking twice in the recipe. I do it once all the time....comes out great.
  12. Carmen Rodriguez
    This was fantastic. I have made it both with plain cream cheese and garlic & herb cream cheese. The latter helped to add another layer of delicious flavor. My husband has not chosen to join me in this new LCHF way of eating, but he nearly devoured this foccacia in a day. Very tasty and it went nicely with a low-carb cream of mushroom soup that I found on another site.

    I’ve made this similar base for fathead pizza recipe which we love - so easy. I do the cheese and cream cheese in the microwave and it melts down fine - just have to work quickly with other ingredients after and stir well. My garlic bread is cooking atm and so is my tomato, basil and parmesan soup in the slow cooker - can’t wait for lunch 😀
  14. Jackie Rasmussen
    Has anyone tried baking and freezing after 1st bake? I’ve used it for pizza crust and it felt and tasted like the real thing.
    Side note: I did mix the warm cheese in by hand as I would have done with regular bread. It incorporated really well that way...stirring didn’t work for me.

    I love this "Bread". I put the cheese and cream cheese on a low heat and combine with a wooden spoon until it's a smooth ball.

    That entirely depends on what the item is, yes water itself is 100g = 100ml and a lot of things with a water base are around the same grams to ml, but a lot of other (esp. solid) produce is not , for example in this actual recipe it is 100grams of almond flour equals175ml of almond flour. I am a bit worried about what you've been baking ;-)

    I am kind of assuming you are only doing this with liquids which would work out fine most of the time except not so accurate with oil based liquids.

    I may as well add another plea to Diet Doctor please use grams for solids. I am slow at cooking and stopping to check the main site and or conversion sites just triples my time which is already far too long as it is.

    You can omit them but you may find the recipe bland without them. There may not be a good substitute for garlic or onions in this recipe.

    Made this for the first time. Certainly won't be the last time. Biggest issue was having to share it with my family.

    The flavor is not bad, but in my case I feel that is a lot of salt... I would remove at least the half of salt.

    You can certainly reduce the salt if needed.

    Help please .... based on cheese quantity (I checked online for amounts) 6 oz mozzarella = 1-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella. Then it cooked like a slab of cheese .... no bread texture and no raising. What did I do wrong? The photo looks wonderful but sure didn't look like mine.
    Tks....

    For a soft cheese like mozzarella, you maybe should have used 1c in place of 6 ounces.
    "How do I measure cheese without a scale?

    You can use a measuring cup to estimate how many ounces of cheese you have. For soft or crumbly cheeses, 1 cup is equivalent to 6 ounces. For semi-hard cheeses like cheddar, 1 cup is equivalent to 4 ounces. Finally, for un-grated hard cheeses like parmesan, 1 cup is equivalent to 3 ounces. For smaller amounts use ½ a cup and divide the corresponding ounces by half. "

    I don't have white wine vinegar, can I substitute it for something else?
  28. Diana
    Oh, my! This has to be THE BEST keto bread ever! I accidentally used apple cider vinegar and it turned out just fine. Everybody loved it at home. My daughter (who eats carbs on a regular basis) said it was the best she'd ever had. I'm totally in love with this bread. Thank you, DD!!

    Awesome! So glad it turned out well for you!

    I've been making this for a long time and love the recipe. It does indeed make a great pizza crust. I just adjust the cheese and flour up to 1 cup instead of 3/4 to give it more size. One thing I should mention is that the measurements seem to have changed from the first time(s) I've used this recipe. It now says 1 1/2 cups cheese but says 6 oz also. 6 oz is 3/4 cup and that is what I've always used in conjunction with the matching amount of flour. It also says 3/4 cup almond flour with 3oz as a side note. That should read 6 oz, too. That could be confusing for people. If they go with 1 1/2 cups cheese with 3/4 cup flour, they may end up with a cheese pie. Thanks.

    This was easy to make and turned out great! I absolutely will cut down on the garlic and the butter next time, though. My sons, who both bathe in garlic, thought it was also too much. Otherwise, the texture was good and it's a keeper recipe.
  32. Valerie Mugridge
    Delicious! More like garlic bread than focaccia but there's nothing bad about that!

    J'adore! j'en ai fait 8 petits comme ça je vais en congeler

    I used fiesta cheese instead of mozzarella and mixed everything together without melting. I baked it for 20 minutes and that was that! I didn’t add the topping because it was beautifully golden brown and perfect. I cut it in small squares and watched my children devour it.
  35. Michelle
    It was too salty. Leave out at least half of the salt or more.
  36. Magnus
    No need to overcomplicate things. I just mixed everything together cold in a bowl by hand (One wet lump of mozzarella (125g), a slightly smaller lump of my own homemade cream cheese, a mix of herbs, one egg and a squirt of vinegar). Working it around for a while will turn it into a nice moist ball of dough. Make it as thick or thin as you want and throw in the oven for 20 mins or more, then spread melted butter over it and let cool. Looked pretty much exactly like the picture.

    Also, I thought I could eat it all in one go, but let me tell you, just two small slices filled me up! Which is probably a good thing because I'm not sure exactly how many carbs or calories are in this thing. :P
