Yes, even with eliminating wheat and grains from our diet, we still eat pizza! This pizza is one of our favorite meals - it's filling and any leftovers reheat nicely. I like to use the Wheatfree Market Pizza Crust Mix, but you can make your own with these ingredients:
Ingredients for Crust:
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cups almond meal or flour
¼ cup garbanzo bean or coconut flour
4 tablespoons ground golden flaxseed
1 teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon sea salt
2 large eggs
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
½ cup water
Preheat oven to 350º F.
-In food processor or food chopper, pulse or chop mozzarella cheese until reduced to granular size. If you don't have a food processor, just grate the cheese.
-In large bowl, combine almond meal/flour, garbanzo bean or coconut flour, ground flaxseed, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt. Stir in mozzarella cheese, followed by eggs, olive oil, water and mix thoroughly.
-Spread large sheet of parchment paper over a cookie sheet. Place dough on parchment paper. -Coat hands in olive oil or water and spread dough into desired shape.
-Bake for approx. 20 minutes or until golden brown.
-Remove from oven and let cool.
-Apply toppings. Top with your choice of toppings such as additional mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, chopped peppers and onions, sliced sausage (cooked), pepperoni, etc.
-Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
I have found that it's easiest to make the crust in a rectangle shape. The dough is really sticky, so it takes a bit of patience to get it spread out nicely. I just wet my hands with water to spread it.
We like tomato sauce, but you can use any sauce you like - just brush it onto the baked crust and add cheese and toppings.
