INGREDIENTS

 

8 oz of cream cheese

1 egg

1  1/2 cup almond flour

1 cup ground flax

1/2 tsp sea salt

 

DIRECTIONS

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium size bowl, cream the cream cheese. Add egg.
Mix in remaining ingredients. The dough will be sticky.
Place dough on a parchment lined pizza baking sheet (mine is about 14″ round). Cover with another piece of parchment and roll out to edges of pie pan. I started with a rolling pan, but I finished it off using my fingers.
Bake in oven for approximately 20-25 minutes until the crust is dry but not too browned.
Remove from oven. Top with traditional pizza toppings (I made a turkey cheeseburger pizza).
Pop it back in the oven for approximately 10 minutes until cheese is gooey. The flash up the broiler for 2-3 minutes to give the cheese a nice golden brown colour.
Serves 8
