- 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.

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!!!
ALMOND FLOUR PIZZA CRUST
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 tbsp EVOO
