Pizza… The ultimate comfort food! We know you love it, but wouldn't it be great if you could enjoy the rich, aromatic, tasty meal guilt free?
Here is a healthier low carb, high protein version of your favourite comfort food!
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cooking Time: 35 Minutes
Total Time: 45 Minutes
- ¼ cup Nude Whey protein powder
- 1¼ cup blanched almond flour (or ½ cup coconut flour)
- 4 Tablespoons Psyllium husk powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
- 1 tablespoon Italian spices
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 eggs, or 4 eggs if using coconut flour
- 1 cup boiling water
- Small amount of butter or coconut oil for brushing
- Your favourite pizza toppings!
How to make it:
Step 1: Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius (375 degrees Fahrenheit).
Step 2: Combine all dry ingredients and mix until blended. Add eggs and mix until well combined.
Step 3: Add boiling water and mix until the dough thickens and start to stick to your beater.
Step 4: Place ball on greased baking sheet. Spray a piece of backing paper with oil and place on top of the dough to help spread without sticking.
Use a rolling pin or your hands to spread the dough into a pizza that will fit on your pizza tray or in your oven.
The dough will raise 2-3 times its size so make the raw dough thickness one third of what you want the final pizza to be!
Step 5: Place in oven and Bake for 25 minutes. Remove crust from oven and brush with butter or coconut oil and return to oven. Leave for 3-8 minutes or until crust is crisp.
NOTE: Be careful and watch closely during this step to make sure the base doesn’t burn. You just want it to crisp up. You can start the “crisping” with the base flipped over to crisp the bottom and then flip over and crisp the top as well.
Step 6: Add your favourite toppings and bake for another 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted and starts to brown.
