(Mine looks similar to this, except the toppings are different.)
Flax Meal Pizza Crust
It makes a pizza that is about 12 inches in diameter, although you can spread it thinner and larger if you want.
• 1 and 1/2 C flaxseed meal
• 2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon oregano
• Sweetener to equal about 1 Tablespoon of sugar
• 3 Tablespoons of oil
• 3 eggs
• 1/2 C water
Preheat oven to 425 F.
1. Mix dry ingredients together.
2. Add wet ingredients, and mix very well.
3. Let sit for about 5 minutes to thicken.
4. Spread on baking pan (I put it on a silicon mat or greased parchment paper).
5. Bake for 15-18 minutes until cooked through, then add toppings and cook until done.
Nutritional Analysis: Whole crust has 7 grams of effective carbohydrate, plus 52 grams fiber, 47 grams protein, and 130 grams fat.
While my flaxseed crust is baking, I prepare the sauce.
Easy Pizza Sauce
1 15-ounce can tomato sauce
1 6-ounce can tomato paste
1 tablespoon ground oregano
1 1/2 tsp. dried minced garlic
1 tsp. ground paprika
In a medium bowl, mix together sauce and tomato paste until smooth. Stir in oregano, garlic, & paprika.
As for toppings, you can top your pizza with your favorites. I like using pepperoni, crumbled sausage, bacon bits, onions, black olives, green olives, green peppers, mozzarella, and provolone cheeses. All of these ingredients are relatively low in carbs and pretty much okay while on most low carb diets such as Atkins.
I got this idea from some one’s post on the Atkins forum. This surprised me how good it actually is. Now, it’s not like regular pizza crust and it doesn’t equal it in taste because it’s different. Not bad different, okay. If you’re willing to try new things for health and diet reasons, then give it a spin! I’ll be eager to see what you think!
