Flax-seed meal pizza crust


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.

  1. I made a flaxseed meal crust a few weeks ago and loved it!


    1. isn’t it awesome? it is so fast and easy to make. I found it very filling, as well. It’s a win win dish: filling, healthy, fast to make, tastes good 🙂


  2. WOW! What a yummy looking photo. Thanks for the recipe, PMP. =)


  3. Not sure this would go over with the hubby, but it’s a beautiful presentation. 🙂


    1. it didn’t work with mine but that’s a normal thing in our house – I normally prepare two different dinners 🙂

    I love this! One of the things I really miss since going gluten-free is pizza. I like the fresh herbs you added too!

    Gorgeous photos. 🙂


    1. I don’t know how you can live without pizza!
      this one is really a great substitution for the real deal… it tastes different and unique.


  5. What a creative pizza crust, sounds fantastic!

    Stopping by from Wednesday Fresh Foods (my recipe is the stuffed mushrooms)


    1. too bad my husband hates mushrooms… 😉
      BUT your cherry cheesecake made me drool. really. it looks that good.


  6. Just pinned your great recipe and thanks for sharing on Full Plate Thursday!

    1. awesome! Thank you for spreading the healthy recipe! It is truly delicious. Actually I am going to make it today for dinner with some fresh pesto spread 🙂


  7. I’ve tried to use flex seed meal to make flat bread before and I did not really like it. Maybe I would like it better if I tried to make pizza instead. However, will probably not try it again since hubby is not sold on it all.
    Thanks for sharing your pizza with Food Photo linky!


    1. I know what you mean, Mira. This “dough” has a specific flavor and texture which migh not be very pleasant to many.
      My husband does not like it, either but that’s how we eat at our house: two different meals for dinner (not always but very often). He likes the same, tried before dishes. I always like to try new things.


  8. You always find such creative ways to use such healthy nutritious foods! Your pizza looks beautiful! I often eat a pizza on a a whole grain flat out or tortilla and the rest of the family does something different! What is it with some men and whole grains? LOL! 🙂


    1. i think, there is something in their genes 😉
      btw, tortilla pizza sounds interesting !


      1. Ewa my Nutritionist told me about it except I don’t make the crust I just buy the whole grain tortillas or wraps…its really good!


        1. I make torilla lasagna and it’s really good so I can imagine that the pizza is also delicious. Do you have the recipe or the direction how to make it on your blog somewhere?!


          1. No but for you since it requires no baking it would be so easy. I will share how I build it I already have some pics I have taken I make it as kind of a mexican pizza and more traditional pizza!


  9. I add flax seed to baking, but have never tried baking with just it. Now I am intrigued. It would be a great way to make pizza more filling…

    Thanks for linking up to Healthy 2day Wednesday. Hope to see you back next week.


    1. it is filling! I was very surprised that after two pieces I was full and done eating, which is not the case when I eat regular pizza.


  10. Thank you for your submission on Nourishing Treasures’ Make Your Own! Monday link-up.

    Check back tomorrow when the new link-up is running to see if you were one of the top 3 featured posts! 🙂


  11. huh. i would have never thought to make a pizza crust out of flax – how clever you are!!

    thank you for linking up with us at the Wednesday Fresh Foods Blog Hop – I hope to see you back again this week with another seasonal post 🙂 xo, kristy.


  12. I like! It reminds me of a flax seed foccacia i’ve seen before. Think you can make this without eggs?


    1. I bet you could use commercial egg replacer… or banana or apple sauce (half banana or 1/4 apple sauce for 1 egg). I have never tried it myself but I think it would add great flavor to the crust.


  13. It looks delicious! And great shots!
