Since going gluten free, I have tried many pizza crusts, some successful, some tolerable and some gross. I don’t have a lot of choices of flour since starting Trim Healthy Mama.
I have been enjoying flax seed muffin in a mug and thought I’d play with a pizza crust. Within the first try, I found a pizza that tasted great and I could actually pick up with my hands. It’s even easier than regular dough!
I won’t lie, you can taste the flax, but with the right toppings, it is minimal!
Add in the wet ingredients and mix.
Let sit a few minutes to thicken up so you can work with it.
Grease some parchment paper and spread on the flax dough with a spatula. This is easy. Just watch for toddlers that come and put their fingers in it. (See Picture below!)
This recipe makes a 12 inch pizza.
For you Trim Healthy Mamas it is an S.
Carefully place the crust on the parchment paper on a preheated pizza stone.
Bake at 425 for about 10 minutes.
When you take it out, flip it over and place toppings on that side, this way the other side will have time to crisp up while baking.
Top with your favorite toppings. This pizza was topped with alfredo sauce, lots of parm and mozzarella cheese, spinach and tomatoes. It could have used some fresh basil but I didn’t grow any this year!
Put bake on the pizza stone and bake for another 15 minutes until the cheese is melted and starting to brown.
Remove from oven and let sit about five minutes before serving.
You can also leave out the cheese for a dairy free version. Top with tomato sauce and some pizza toppings and it would still be yummy.
