I recently found a recipe that I wanted to try for pizza crust using flax seed meal as its base/main ingredient. It didn't have a lot of ingredients and the pictures looked really good. I found it on a blog called "Delighted Momma". It actually looked like whole wheat pizza crust, and was very similar looking to a whole wheat Boboli, if you've ever seen or bought one of those. I tweaked it just a tiny bit by adding about 1/3 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese to the dough. I must say...it was really good and it actually looked like dough, felt like dough, and cooked into something that was more "genuine pizza crust looking, feeling and tasting". It was like REAL pizza crust (much more so than the cauliflower crust I made recently). Let me just put it this way...this recipe pushed the cauliflower pizza crust off of the map completely for me. This recipe was much less time intensive to make...and the end product was a significantly more authentic and satisfying alternative to a regular wheat based pizza crust than the cauliflower crust I tried a couple of weeks ago. Flax is very healthy for you too, and if you want to reduce the cholesterol a bit, you can substitute Egg Beaters in place of the 3 whole eggs this recipe uses. I used organic golden flax seed meal because it has a much milder taste than some of the darker flax seed meals. At this moment, I believe I have found my new "go to" wheat free pizza crust recipe. I snapped a few pics below for you to see, as well as the recipe. Enjoy!
