Almond Flour Pizza Crust (Gluten, Casein, Grains and Yeast Free!!!)

I have joined India and Greg in a rebalancing diet which excludes casein, wheat, refined sugar and yeast - this is a little tricky when it comes to one of my favourite foods - pizza.  Stumped, I decided to surf the web and found this fantastic website by "Ginger Lemon Girl" After reading this recipe I immediately went out and purchased "Bob's Red Mill" almond meal/flour and decided to treat us all to homemade pizza.  It was not only super-easy to create, but has a great texture and taste!!! YAY!  Pizza is back in my diet!!!
2 cups almond flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
 1 tsp each; dried oregano, garlic powder and dried basil
3/4 cup pureed white beans (I used white kidney but cannellini or navy beans are also good!)
3 eggs
3 tbsp EVOO 

  • Preheat oven to 350F.  Line a 12" round pizza pan or rectangular baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients together.  In a smaller bowl mix the last three ingredients.  Combine dry and wet ingredients.  The dough is wetter than the average pizza dough, but don't worry!
  • Using a spatula, gently spread the mixture over the pan to a thickness of 1/2" and place in the oven for 10 - 12 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned.
  • Add your choice of toppings and bake for an additional 10 - 15 minutes, or until you toppings are cooked through or melted.
  • ENJOY!!!!
