Low Carb Almond Pizza Crust
We love this almond flour (meal) based pie. Keep in mind this recipe is for the crust only because that's the main differentiating element to this pizza. You can use any of the other pizza recipes we've outlined here for topping ideas.
Almond meal works a whole lot like regular thin pizza crust and it stays pretty crispy like a regular pizza. The almond flour make this a high calorie pizza, but the ENTIRE pizza has only 19 grams of carbohydrate (depending on what you put on top). Pretty sweet!
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. As it begins to stick together (coalesce is the term I believe :), knead it into a ball.
Lay the ball on a large sheet of parchment paper, and tear off a second sheet of parchment (same size) and lay it on top of the dough ball.
Gently push down on the ball to flatten and prepare for rolling pin. Once ball is flat enough to roll, begin rolling and be sure to change directions periodically through the rolling process.
Once it is even, remove the top parchment sheet and place bottom sheet and crust onto a pan. Place pan in oven and bake (pre-bake) for about 12 minutes or until edges of the crust are a tiny bit brown.
After pre-baking is done, remove crust from the oven and top with your toppings of choice (refer to any other diabetic pizza recipe in our collection) and bake for another 10-12 minutes.
