Low Carb Pizza (for one)
1/2 cup flax seed meal (I used organic golden flax which has a milder taste)
2/3 teaspoon baking powder (aluminum free)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano (or Italian seasoning)
Pinch of salt, more or less to taste
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, shredded
1 egg (or 1/4 cup egg substitute such as Egg Beaters)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons PLUS 2 teaspoons water
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix dry ingredients together; add wet ingredients and mix well.
Let the dough sit for about 5 minutes to thicken. Spread dough on a lightly oiled large round pizza pan or on a cookie sheet with greased parchment paper (I used Reynolds non-stick foil, lightly brushed with olive oil and pressed the dough out with a rubber spatula so it wouldn't stick). Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through (check it after 15 minutes and take out if it looks and feels done). Add sauce, cheese, pre-cooked toppings and place back into the oven for 5-10 minutes to melt the cheese. If desired, run under the broiler for a few minutes to lightly brown the toppings and cheese (be careful not to burn it).
Here is a link to the original crust recipe -- it makes either two 14" pizzas or one huge/large cookie sheet sized crust. Just press the dough out to your desired thickness.
