If pizza didn't exist, I would be the most healthy person in the world. You wouldn't believe how difficult pizza is for me to resist. The key to the healthiness of this crust is the pea protein. I buy it in bulk on Amazon, but you should be able to find it at health food stores. If you don't have flaxseed meal, almond flour, AND oat fiber, you can just substitute all of the flours for flaxseed meal or almond flour. No need to buy all three! If you want something even healthier, try out my flaxseed meal pizza crust recipe.
The pizza pictures above is approximately half of the recipe made into a BBQ chicken pizza, with my homemade low-carb BBQ sauce.
Ingredients (see above note if missing one of the flours):
6 oz grated cheese (I used mozzarella)
1/4 cup flaxseed meal
1/4 cup almond flour
2 tbsp oat fiber
2 tbsp pea protein
1.5 oz cream cheese (make sure you use regular. Low-fat often has added sugar!)
Pinch of salt (optional, the cheese brings in most of the salty flavor already)
Preheat oven to 425°F. Put all the ingredients EXCEPT the egg into a microwaveable bowl. Microwave 1 minute. Stir ingredients. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until the cheeses are all melted. Add the egg and mix by hand until it is fully incorporated. Press onto a sprayed oven pan.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust has just started to brown.
Add sauce and desired toppings. Broil on high for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Enjoy!!
