Sinfully Savory Gluten Free Pizza Crust Recipe
by Jen Springer
Face it, if you’re eating gluten free you’ve tried things that were so gross you wouldn’t even feed it to your arch enemy. Soggy, bitter, rock hard, and tasteless are all terms often used when describing commercially available gluten free pizza crusts. Oh, did I mention over-priced?
Do you have 6 minutes to make the most savory and satisfying crust from scratch?
The above video will show you the simple steps how.
The real pet peeve of mine aren’t the above issues. What? Commercial gluten free pizza crusts are full of refined sugar and flours. Tapioca, potato, rice, and corn flours may taste yummy but your blood sugars sky rocket and yeast (candida) blooms as if Miracle Grow has been sprinkled on it. Who likes an itchy butt and wet ears anyways? Not I!
This recipe has been mildly adapted from Elana Amsterdam’s Almond Flour Cookbook Pizza Crust Recipe. She has simple and outrageously delicious recipes. Everything I’ve ever made of hers is FABULOUS! Yeah, don’t be worried about the calories and fat in the almond flour. This is what anchors your blood sugar and keeps you satisfied for hours.
1 1/2 cup of blanched almond flour
1/4 teaspoon of Sea Salt (I like Redmond Real Salt)
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1 tablespoon of grapeseed oil
1 large egg
1 teaspoon of your favorite savory herbs (Italian Seasoning, rosemary, basil & sun dried tomato)
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix in a large bowl all of the ingredients. Press into a greased non-stick pan, or roll between parchment paper. Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until lightly golden brown.
Take out of oven and dress with your favorite yummy toppings. We did tomato sauce, chicken, garlic, colby jack cheese, and cilantro on the pizza shown below. You can get fancy and make a chili or even an alfredo pizza too!
After you put on your favorite toppings, put back in the oven for 10 minutes or so. You’ll know when it’s done when all the cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling.
If you come up with an outta sight topping combo, please post here so others can benefit from your creativity.
