I've followed this thread since the beginning but never got around to making this until today -- Why did I wait so long? This is without a doubt the best low carb pizza crust I have had, thank you Tyler. I couldn't even eat the whole thing. Should have stopped at 2 pieces, but ate that third one anyway -

My DD was requesting that we make "Alfredo Pizza" for supper tonite which I made in the past pre-lc, with Boboli crust, alfredo sauce, chicken, cheeses, garlic etc. like a white sauce pizza. I was going to make it for her but knowing how badly I'd want a piece, I couldn't do it. Needless to say, I'm going to make it tonite and make me one with this flax crust! I'm so excited and will post the results after I make it. Thanks tyler

I made a few of these a while back and they broke up in the freezer, maybe it was the way they were stored, I double wrapped in saran wrap and put in freezer, when I went to get one out later they were in pieces, still tasted ok, but I used it for garlic bread instead of pizza since they were not in one piece,maybe if I put them in a container they would of been ok..

This pizza is soooo good! I didn't use garlic powder or onion powder but used a tsp. of italian seasoning and a tsp. of basil. The possiblities for this crust are endless. Wow! I ate the whole thing after cutting it into six slices and it was heavenly and definetely satisified my pizza craving. Have you froze any crust yet? I would love to have these on hand for my family's pizza night so I can enjoy my own little pizza
*I didn't try the alfredo one yet*

Now I am enthusiastic.... I'll be shopping for ingredients today. I always have flax meal on hand becaue I have it for my daily breakfast cereal, but this looks really good.

I liked the ideas of the mexican pizza - I do a lot of no shell tacos, so this is one of my favourite dishes.

Posting to keep this on notify for myself...

you can also try the "deep dish pizza". Who said you can't eat pizza in this WOE(pic)

it's very good also and not complicated to make.

I just cut and paste the recipes, color photos and comments into word. Here's a trick I learned with word. If you cut and paste then print WITHOUT filing the document, everything will come out wonderful. If you cut and paste with photographs, then file, you will totally screw up your document.

So I cut, paste and printed and now I have this wonderful recipe, color photos of the pizzas, and everyone's tweaking hints! My husband will go nuts when he sees the pictures - he's been craving pizza so badly.

Thank you everyone - I'm making them this weekend.

Can this be made with just Carbquick? I do not have readily access to flaxmeal other than netrition and I hate waiting. Anyone know?

lilmama - it's not going to come out the same with Carbquik instead of the flax meal, but you'd probably get an edible crust. You might try the Carbquik pizza crust recipe on the box, though, if you have one.

As far as flax meal... Have you looked in the baking section of your local supermarket? Try looking for Bob's Red Mill products. Any health food store will probably carry flax seeds which are easily ground into flax meal.

If you have the seeds, then yes you'll need to grind them first to make meal. The food processer won't work, you'll need a coffee grinder, these seeds are hard little suckers


I too have a bag of flaxseed just sitting in my cupboard...Will the Magic Bullet work? And how do I know when I've grounded it enough?

another question..Is the consistency, once it's mixed up (the original recipe) like a thick pancake batter or an actual dough?

Made this last night....Not bad. It taste like what a healthy pizza should taste like. I've never used flaxmeal before so I was kind of a skeptic on how good it actually could be. I tasted the herbs and flavor that I put into it. The texture you have to get use too, but it's not too bad. I will definitely be using this as my pizza dough from now on! Thanks for the recipe!

Question about the tweaked version--Is there a reason you lowered the amount of flax meal? Flax Meal is 0 carbs, right? Isn't it all fiber?

Flax meal is very low in carbs, and very high in fiber, but it's not 0 carbs. Nothing but pure meat and fat is 0 carbs.

The USDA Nutrient Database lists whole flaxseeds as:

1 cup
Carbohydrate, 48.52g
Fiber, 45.9g

And ground flaxseeds as:

1 Tbs.
Carbohydrate, 2.02g
Fiber, 1.9g

Your alfredo pizza sounds SOOOO good! I don't really crave regular pizza (I know, I'm weird!) but I DO crave white pizza and your post made me drool on the keyboard! Okay, not really, but it sounds delish! I will be trying these crusts soon. I'll try the recipe as posted first, but I'm a tweaker, and I have a homemade low carb bake mix that I may tinker with, maybe subbing half of it for 1/2 of the flax...I did this with Spongebob's bread and the texture improved tremendously.

And SweetTLC- thanks for posting all of your variations of this recipe (flatbreads, tortillas, grilling it...etc..) to give us ideas. Can't wait to try them!

Has anyone made this and put it on a cookie sheet to bake? is the original recipe enough to fill a standard sized cookie sheet (actually it's stoneware)

TIA!

I was wondering about the stoneware as well... I haven't tried this yet, but if it's a hit as an individual pizza, I'm betting DH will want a full sized version!!!

Second question... How well do these reheat in the microwave? Do they get chewy?

I put it on my cookie sheet type stoneware and it almost rolled out to all four sides. I would definitely tweak to add more ingredients to make more dough. I cooked it first until brown and then put on my toppings.
