Low Carb Gluten Free Pizza Recipe

Ingredients:

Base:

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup flaxseed

Toppings:

  • What ever your heart desires but our favourites are…
  • Tomato puree
  • Spicy pulled chicken
  • Red onion
  • Jalapeños  or peppers
  • Grated cheese
  • A sprinkle of basil or mixed herbs

Other things you need:

  • Baking/Pizza Tray
  • Baking Paper
  • Rolling Pin

 

Method:

  1. Turn your over on – 200ºc (fan)
  2. Mix all the base ingredients together in a bowl until it forms a round dough ball.
  3. Stand for 1-5 mins
  4. Grab a square of baking paper – this helps to stop the dough sticking to the bottom of the tray (and the surface you are rolling it out on), it also means no washing up as it protects the tray from getting dirty!
  5. Roll dough out (on the baking paper) into round pizza base using rolling pin or hands to press.  You may want to wet your hands and/or the rolling pin to stop the dough sticking.
  6. Cook, in the centre of your oven, for 10 mins.
  7. Now add the toppings that you want.
  8. Cook for a further 5-8 mins
  9. Serve up and enjoy!

We like to make sure we get our daily does of leafy greens, so why not try a mixed side salad to accompany your pizza and hit your veg target for the day!
