Another great pizza crust...
I wanted pizza for lunch today, but wanted a crust I could put together quickly. I remembered that I had saved this recipe from the gourmet girl cooks blog. It went together very quickly and easily. I baked it on greased parchment paper with no sticking issue. I still like Maria's pizza crust, but I kind of think that this one may become a regular here just because it is so quick and easy to make, and tastes great!

Almond/Flax/Parmesan Herb Pizza Crust

Quick & Easy

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
Dry Ingredients:
1/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup golden flax seed meal (organic golden flax has a milder taste than brown)
2/3 teaspoon baking powder (aluminum free)
1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 Dash cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon sea salt -- or to taste (decrease salt if using saltier cheeses and toppings)
Few grinds of freshly ground black pepper
4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese -- finely grated (4 to 5)
Wet Ingredients:
1 egg (or 1/4 cup egg substitute such as Egg Beaters)
1 tablespoon olive oil (a little more -- if desired)
2 tablespoons water

Makes 1 10-inch round pizza
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix dry ingredients together; add wet ingredients and mix well.

Let the dough sit for about 5 minutes to thicken. Spread dough on a lightly oiled large round pizza pan or on a cookie sheet with greased parchment paper (I used Reynolds non-stick foil, lightly brushed with olive oil and pressed the dough out with a rubber spatula so it wouldn't stick). Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through (check it after 15 minutes and take out if it looks and feels done). Add sauce, cheese, pre-cooked toppings and place back into the oven for 5-10 minutes to melt the cheese. If desired, run under the broiler for a few minutes to lightly brown the toppings and make the cheese bubbly (be careful not to burn it).
