Belly Good Almond & Flax Veggie Pizza

Who would have thought we could make pizza without flour? Since I started Jorge Cruise's "The Belly Fat Cure - Fast Track", I have had to find creative ways to eat all of those "carby things I love so much! So, last night I had to make Pizza for my family. I wanted pizza too, but since I am not eating grains or gluten I had to come up with something. I used 1/2 flax meal & 1/2 almond meal to make a decent crust. I think next time I would just use the almond meal but it tends to have a bit more fat in it and more calories. So...Here it is:

  • 1 Cup Almond Meal
  • 1 cup Flax Meal
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Tbs Olive Oil
  • Water - small amount as needed. (Dough should be firm and a bit crumbly).
  • 1/4 cup Low Sugar Tomato sauce (your favorite brand)
  • Granulated Garlic
  • Grated Parmesan
  • Shredded Cheese (your choice of favorites, mix it up)
  • Sliced vegetables: Bell Peppers, Onion, Mushrooms, Jalapenos, Olives, Meats, etc

Belly Good Pizza

  • Press this dough into a lightly oiled cookie sheet
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 10 - 15 minutes until slightly golden
  • Add your low sugar sauce as needed
  • Sprinkle a bit of Granulated Garlic on top of sauce
  • Sprinkle a bit of Grated Parmesan
  • Add Toppings - Bell Peppers, Mushrooms, Onions, Jalapenos, Onion, Meats (if desired)
  • Add Shredded Cheese of your choice
  • Bake again at 350 degrees until cheese is golden and bubbly!
Mmm Good! Makes 4 servings -

Hi Gina,

Tonight I made a pizza that I can eat. The crust was really easy - just flax meal, grated parmesan, and eggs. Instead of a baking sheet, I used a pizza stone.

I had leftover rotisserie chicken, fresh basil and leftover walnut pesto (from Jorge's Fast Track book) and some prosciutto. I topped it with shredded cheddar as I was too lazy to grate the mozzarella. It turned out fantastic.

It seems we are thinking along the same lines. Your food looks delicious.
