Almond & Flax Pizza Crust

Posted on

I made the eggplant and goat cheese pizza a few weeks ago and was totally craving more pizza after that night. I made the dough, which was a pretty typical pizza crust and created one pizza on the grill and froze the other crust. We still need to use that crust, but of course, I wanted to make a different type of crust for dinner this past week. Why would I use what’s in the freezer before making something new? That’s just totally asinine, haha! I definitely have issues, so Joe says…

I found this almond & flax pizza crust while searching the internet for new recipes. What caught my eye on this recipe was the fact that almonds were incorporated into the crust! That’s definitely getting a nutritional bang for your buck, right?

Almond & Flax Pizza Crust

Serving size: 4 mini pizza crust

Adapted from Paleo Plan Diet

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cup flax meal
  • 1 cup almond meal (place almonds in food processor, grind together until coarse meal is created)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp Italian spices
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup or less water

Directions:

  1. In bowl, mix together flax meal, almond meal, salt, baking powder and spices.
  2. In separate bowl, whisk together eggs and oil.
  3. Pour egg mixture into dry bowl.
  4. Add water as needed until doughy consistency is created.
  5. On greased aluminum foil placed on baking sheet, create 4 mini sized pizza crust (might need to flour hands) pressing into circular flat shape.
  6. Bake for 7 minutes, flip crust.
  7. Add pizza sauce, cheese and toppings, bake another 7 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden brown.
  8. If you are feeling adventurous, make a few different pizzas from the crusts.
  9. ENJOY!
