VERY Simple Pizza Dough

I'm looking for a very simple pizza dough recipe preferably using Carbalose as I have a TON of that on hand - I also have vital wheat gulten, oat flour, almond flour and Carbquick. I don't want to be bothered with a bunch of expensive ingredients that I'd need to order and WAIT for - like WPI8000, WPI5000, resistant wheat starch, etc. Are these ingredients REALLY necessary??

Can't I just use the Carbalose the same as one would any other flour?

Thanks!

This is just an idea, but I've made the George Stella's pizza crust and it uses soy flour--came out pretty good for soy flour--surprised me--but I've been wanting to try it with carbalose instead just to see how it works out.

His recipe is on the food network and you mix it up like a batter and then cook it some and then put the toppings on it and cook it some more. Just a thought.

Also, I made a microwave pizza crust from the microwave almond bread recipe that is on here somewhere. I can find it if you are interested. It was pretty good. I nuked the pizza crust and then put the toppings on it and put it in the oven--made a single size pizza.

Although this recipe calls for wpi5000 to keep the carbs lower I have subbed both carbquik and carbalose in the past as an experiment when I was low and they both worked fine. My favorite is still with the wpi5000 though.

If your looking for a simple pizza crust....this may work for you Barbara.

Polly Want A Thin And Crispy Cheese Cracker Pizza


this line is wrong in original recipe
"Turn out half the dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet."
it should be
"Turn out the dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet."

Thanks Kevin - it looks WONDERFUL - I not only printed the recipe - but the pictures as well - it helps to have something visual to refer back to.
