RUSTIC LOW CARB PIZZA CRUST

RUSTIC LOW CARB PIZZA CRUST

Only 1 net carb per serving (2 slices). Don’t let the unusual color of this pizza crust deceive you. It has great flavor and an authentic bread-like texture despite its appearance and carb count. Rolling it out is a little tricky (see the “notes” in the recipe card), but be patient and you’ll be rewarded in the most delicious way!

Ingredients
  

  • ½ teaspoon olive oil
  • cups warm water
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ½ cup (2 ounces) coconut flour
  • ¼ cup (1 ounce) almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons (1½ ounces) psyllium husk powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place a 12-inch circle of parchment paper in the center of a 14-inch round pizza tray and brush it with the olive oil.
  • Pour the water into a small bowl. Add the yeast and sugar and stir. Let it sit until the surface is foamy/bubbly, about 5 minutes.
  • In a bowl whisk together the coconut flour, almond flour, psyllium husk powder, salt, and garlic powder.
  • Add the yeast mixture and mix well.
  • Dump the dough in the center of the pizza tray/parchment paper. Using the pizza roller, roll the dough out to the edge of the parchment. (See notes).
  • Bake on the bottom rack of the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Using an offset spatula, loosen the crust from the parchment paper and slide it onto a 14-inch round pizza screen.
  • Bake for 5 minutes more on the pizza screen or until the bottom of the crust is nicely browned.
  • Slide the crust back onto the pizza tray (minus the parchment paper), layer on toppings of your choice, and return to the oven for another 5-7 minutes or until toppings are melted and/or heated through.

NOTES

The hardest/most time-consuming part of making this crust is rolling it out. The edges will split as you roll outward and the parchment may buckle a bit. Do your best to keep the parchment flat and press and patch any holes or splits as you roll. It’s normal for the edges of the crust to be a little ragged. You can fold them under or over to make them neater if you wish.
