Flaxseed meal is another one of my favorite ingredient replacers, as it has 1 net carb per serving. Little secret: the above pizza is actually vegetarian (using Morning Star sausage and bacon)...though you probably have figured out that I am not vegetarian (if you saw my steak post...). I love pizza more than any other food in the entire world, but clearly can't order Papa John's when on a low-carb diet. After much experimentation, here is the recipe I came up with:
1.25 cups flaxseed meal (I use Bob's Red Mill brand)
1/4 cup pea protein (this is optional. You can instead use a full 2 cups of flaxseed meal)
1 tsp salt
1.5 tsp baking powder
2 whole eggs +2 egg whites
1/4 cup oil
Water, as needed
Combine all the dry ingredients. Beat the wet ingredients together and add to the dry ingredients. Add water until you get the desired consistency (will be approximately 1/2 cup depending on use of pea protein).
Press the dough into a pan and cook for 10-15 minutes at 425 F. Add desired topping and cook until toppings are done (5-15 mn).
