Low Carb & Gluten Free Pizza Crust

I’ve come to realize in the last week that I have been in a toxic relationship. I had a feeling that I needed to end it, but I was in denial for months. The other night was the straw that broke the camel’s back. It was a difficult break-up, but I have to do what’s best for me in the long run so I ended it. It’s a real comfort to know that I’ll have the support of my peeps during this difficult time. Goodbye flax, it was fun while it lasted…
Had ya goin’ there for a sec didn’t I? But it’s true, flax and I are done for good. I made this delicious pizza crust the other night and couldn’t wait to share it with you guys. It was so yummy that I ate 2 small pieces cold the next morning – and that’s when it happened. I started having the allergy symptoms that I was experiencing this spring and it freaked me out. Heart palpitations, tingling throat and lips, etc.
I had long realized that stevia products, and at this point pretty much all artificial sweeteners, were giving me a reaction. The other day I realized that flax, which I haven’t eaten in awhile was also present in almost every instance that ended me up in the ER.
I love using flax because it’s loaded with Omega 3’s and basically zero carb, but obviously I can’t risk my health over it. Ironically, this pizza crust recipe was an attempt to reduce the amount of flax in my original flax and parmesan pizza crust to improve the flavor and texture. Now I’ll be working on a crust that omits the flax altogether.
Combine all of the dry ingredients and mix well. Add the 2 eggs and stir until a dough forms.
Press or roll into a 10″ circle on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated 350 degree (F) oven for 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and add your desired toppings.
Return to the oven for another 18-20 minutes until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown.
If you can’t get hemp seeds you can use almond meal/flour instead, but it will alter the nutrition information.

I’m glad Cloberella responded. I’ve made cauliflower pizza crust one but it wasn’t crisp. I even tried to fry it in a cast iron skillet and topped ti with cheese and cooked until the cheese was melted. It didn’t crisp up. I know enough to know to squeeze out the water. I will try one more time to make a crispy crust. I will use a dehydrator after making it, to see it that helps. Then bake it with toppings. Oh and do season it as much as you can. It has a taste of cauliflower but it’s mild enough that some seasonings would probably cover it.
PS Microwaves are toxic. Russia had the presence of mind to ban them. Please consider using it less and less. Never for children’s food or anything for pets. Always stand 2+’ away while it is in operation.
Here is the wiki page on the syndrome:
I sympathize with your flax problem… I have PCOS and must avoid it (although there are conflicting opinions out there on the matter). While on the hunt for a good low carb pizza base, I found one I love on a webside called T-Nation (T for testosterone!) -/free_online_forum/diet_performance_nutrition_bodybuilding_velocity_recipe/food_friday_glutenfree_pizza_crust
Yes, this recipe calls for a total of 2 tbsp of milled flax seeds but I have replaced it with ground almonds and found it to be good (if a little more grainy). May need a little tweaking but could be a good start for you!

Thank you for all your wonderful recipes, they are helping me out so much!
So many of the allergy issues brought up can
be traced back to issues in ones gut. For anyone
who cares to do more research and possible find
some answers, try reading Gut and Psychology Syndrome
(Campbell-McBride) where allergies are also addressed.
There is a diet in this book that can actually heal
your gut which will free you from your allergies.
There are answers here you won’t find in your typical
doctor’s office backed by many years of research and
success. Happy Reading!
I am at wits end with our diet, and I am looking any where to find a better solution. I like the idea of healing the gut, and i would love to hear more from you. I am about to order McBrides book, but would like to ask a few questions of you if you have the time.
Get ready to receive more awesome content from IBIH soon!
