Keto pizza crust
- 1¼ cups 300 ml (150 g) almond flour
- ¼ cup 60 ml unflavored protein powder
- 4 tbsp 4 tbsp (40 g) ground psyllium husk powder
- ½ tsp ½ tsp salt
- 2 tbsp 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
- 1 tbsp 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
- 2 tsp 2 tsp (10 g) baking powder
- 2 2 eggeggs
- 1 cup 225 ml boiling water
- 3 tbsp 3 tbsp melted butter or coconut oil, for brushing
- olive oil for greasing
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (176°C). Grease two baking sheets with oil.
- In a medium bowl, mix the dry ingredients until well blended. Add the eggs, and stir until well combined.
- Slowly add boiling water to the mixture, and mix until the dough thickens, and becomes sticky. Divide the dough in half, and using your hands shape the dough into two balls.
- Place each ball in the center of the baking sheets. Spray two pieces of parchment paper with oil, and place each on top of the dough. Lay a rolling pin or your hands on top of the parchment papers to shape and flatten the dough into two, 10-inch (25cm) round, thin crusts. Finally, prick tiny holes in the crusts with a fork, to help prevent bubbles from forming.
- Place the trays in the oven on the middle racks, and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until lightly browned.
- Remove, and brush the crusts with butter or coconut oil.
- Increase the temperature to the Broil/Grill setting. Watch closely during this step to make sure that the crusts become crispy, yet not burnt. Grill both sides of the pizza base until crispy and light brown (approximately 1-3 minutes on each side).
- Set aside to cool, and then store in the freezer until you want to use them. If you can't wait, pre-heat the oven to 425 °F (218°C), add toppings and bake for 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and starts to brown.
These frozen crusts make dinner time easy! Preheat the oven to 425 °F (218° C). Unwrap the crusts and place them on a baking sheet. Add your sauce and favorite toppings, and then place them in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
