Confession: when I first thought of this recipe, I envisaged a gooey, stretchy, cheesy, commercial stuffed crust pizza kind of result.
I’ll be honest, I was so disappointed when that’s not how it turned out…until I ate it.
Granted, you don’t get that melty stretchy moment, but you do get a crust that is so jam packed with flavour that you want to go back for more, and more.
I kept the rest of my toppings super simple but you can use whatever you like, just keep an eye on your carb counts. Enjoy!
Instead of 2/3 cup almond flour, use 4 heaped tablespoons (48 g/ 1.7 oz) of coconut flour + 2 oz (57 g) cream cheese, or 2 oz (57 g) flaxmeal + 2 oz (57 g) cream cheese. If using coconut flour, brush the top of the crust with a small amount of melted ghee or coconut oil before baking.
