  • 1 large Egg (Whole)
  • 1/4 cup Tap Water
  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 cup Blanched Almond Flour
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese (Grated)
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder (Straight Phosphate, Double Acting)
  • 1/2 tsp Xylitol
  • 3/4 tsp Oregano
  • 3/4 tsp Basil
  • 1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes


This recipe is suitable for all phases except for the first two weeks of Induction due to the nuts.
  1. Whisk together the wet ingredients (egg, water and oil) in a small bowl.  Set aside.
  2. Combine the remaining dry ingredients; stirring to blend.  The spices are optional but add a great flavor to the dough.  Consider adding up to 1/2 tsp garlic powder as well as the 1/4 tsp chili pepper flakes.  Add the wet ingredients stirring to form a thick dough.  
  3. Grease two sheets of parchment and roll the dough between the sheets into a thin circle or square to fit a pizza pan or baking sheet.  Bake at 375°F for 20-25 minutes until golden and crisp around the edges.  Allow to cool about 20 minutes to form a crunchy crust.  Top with toppings and place back in the oven or broiler for a few minutes to cook the toppings.  Makes 8 slices.
