  • 1/2 cup Tap Water
  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 cup Almond Meal Flour
  • 1/2 cup Flax Seed Meal
  • 3 tbsp Potato Starch
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder (Straight Phosphate, Double Acting)
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Xylitol
  • 3/4 tsp, leaves Oregano
  • 3/4 tsp, leaves Basil (Dried)
  • 1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes


This recipe makes a wonderful crust.  It is considered a Phase 4 recipe due to the potato starch even though it is a low amount.  The potato starch allows the dough to stretch a little more and to become more crispy.
  1. Whisk together the 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 nice flavor.  Consider adding up to 1/2 tsp garlic powder as well.  Add the wet ingredients stirring to form a thick dough.  
  3. Grease two sheets of parchment and roll the dough between them 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.

Cooking Tip

If you have whole flax seeds, you can grind up about 5 tablespoons in a blender to get 1/2 cup meal.
