Flax Seed Pizza Crust (sugar free • gluten free • low carb • dairy free)

I wanted to share with everyone the recipe for the pizza I made the other night. I thought it was delicious, my husband not so much. It's all a matter of taste I guess. If you have made things before with flax seed and have liked it then I think you will really enjoy this. Joe just hasn't had too good of an experience with it so far. If you are looking for an extremely low carb, nutritious, and healthy pizza, then you should give this a shot.

After mixing my ingredients I spread the dough out over a silicone baking mat
and placed it on a cookie sheet. I love this mat and I use it often.
Especially when making Parmesan crackers. Plus, you can
slice your pizza (or crackers) directly on it without cutting the mat.

Then I baked the crust in the oven watching for it to brown. Then I topped it with
pizza sauce, fresh grated mozzarella cheese, and my toppings.

That is Joe's half on the left.
He wasn't interested in my black olives, onion and mushrooms.
What a wierdo.

Mmmmm more cheese.

I popped it back in the oven and finished it up!

It was so good and filling. I could only eat half of my half
and then I took the rest to work for lunch the next day.
It was even good reheated!

Best Part... I could eat it guilt free!

Flax pizza crust:

  • 1 and 1/2 C flax seed meal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • Sweetener to equal about 1 Tablespoon of sugar (1/16 tsp stevia extract powder)
  • 3 Tablespoons of oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 C water
Preheat oven to 425 F. Mix dry ingredients together. Add wet ingredients, and mix very well. Let it sit for about 5 minutes to thicken. Spread on pan (I spread it as thin as possible). Bake for 15-18 minutes until cooked through, then add toppings and cook until they are done.

I am going to be making a pizza later this week using almond flour for the crust. I have a feeling this one will go over better with the hubs. I'll let you know how it goes!
