Herby Flaxseed Meal Pizza Dough

by Lisa Bishop

Flaxseed meal is great for making pizza dough. With the advent of low-carbohydrate diets, this dough is not unsimilar to regular varieties, but the outcome is much tastier. It has a slightly nutty flavor and is lighter in texture:

Ingredients:

2 cups flaxseed meal
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons natural baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon Italian mixed dried herbs
3 large eggs, beaten until smooth
3 tablespoons sunflower oil
½ cup water

Method:

  1. Heat oven to 425 ?F.
  2. Combine flaxseed meal, sea salt, baking powder, sugar and Italian Herbs together until lump-free.
  3. Beat together eggs, sunflower oil and water until smooth.
  4. Pour liquid mixture into flaxseed meal mixture. Blend well until smooth.
  5. Cover with a tea towel and put in a warm place until doubled in size for about 1 hour.
  6. Press into desired shape (oblongs are more traditional in Italy for pizza).
  7. Place on a pre-greased or non-stick pizza pan or sit on a silicon baking mat.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes in the center of the oven until cooked.
  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool until warm to the touch.
  10. Add favorite toppings and then return to the oven to bake as with any normal pizza.

Makes 1 medium (12in) pizza base

Tips: Try to use organic ingredients for toppings. Add meat, poultry, fish or a vegetarian protein for a complete meal.
