Low Carb Pizza Crust

I’m on a low carb kick and I was craving pizza.  What was I going to do?  A Google search of course!  I found a recipe for a flax seed meal pizza crust and modified it for my taste.  Not only was it easy and quick to make (about 30 minutes) it tasted great!  I think this will be the only pizza crust I’ll be making !


1 1/2 cups flax seed meal (got mine at Costco)

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

2 tsp fresh oregano

1 tsp fresh rosemary

2 cloves chopped garlic

3 tbsp olive oil

3 eggs (I used egg substitute)

1/2 cup water

Mix all ingredients together ( I mix all the wet ingredients with each other and all the dry ingredients with each other, then mix the two)

Let sit for about 5 minutes to thicken (it will thicken, don’t worry)

Spread on the pizza pan, stone or parchment paper.  I used parchment paper and it came out fine.

Bake for 15 minutes  in a 425 degree oven or until it is cooked through.

Add toppings and bake or broil until they are done.

As with any pizza crust you will want to grease your pan if you aren’t using a silicone pad or parchment paper.

When you spread the dough out make an indention 1/2 inch in from the edge to hold your toppings in.

    • I have not tried to make it in advance and refrigerate it. It only takes about 5 to 10 minutes to prepare it before baking it, so I’ve always done it all at once.
