Surprisingly enough, I rally liked this crust. It is such a unique and much healthier substitution for the regular one.
I will make it again,
however next time I’m going to bake it for a bit longer in order to get rid of that slightly slimy texture of the crust. I am not sure if that can be done, though.
From this recipe I made pizza that had fed me and our daughter for dinner and lunch the next day. Husband wasn’t brave enough to try it. I spread the dough to about 1/2 inch thick and it took about 3/4 of 9×12 inch baking sheet. Next time I’ll try to make it thinner as it raised while baking.
1 1/2 flax-seed meal
1 tsp. baking powder
2 Tbsp. fresh mint, chopped
2 Tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar (or your choice of sweetener)
1/2 cup water
3 eggs, beaten
3 Tbsp. olive oil,
Preheat oven to 425 F
Mix well flax-seed meal, baking powder, basil, mint, salt, sugar. Add water, beaten eggs and olive oil. Mix util all ingredients are well combined. It will be very watery but that’s ok. Let the mixture rest for 15 minutes.
Spread the batter over a baking sheet layered with parchment paper (do not have to grease it, at least I didn’t and it worked just fine).
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. I baked it for 15 minutes but in my opinion it wasn’t enough. Next time I’ll bake it for 20 minutes.
Add your favorite toppings and bake for additional few minutes until the cheese is melted.
Don’t be shy and let me know what’s hiding in your head!
