Serves 1

Ingredients: 

  • 1/4 cup+1tsp egg whites
  • 1 tbsp water 
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tbsp unflavoured whey protein (Quest is great)
  • 2 tsp psyllium husk
  • 1/8 tsp xanthan gum (optional)
  • Seasonings(optional but recommended):
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp thyme
  • 1/8 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp splenda
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Directions: 

  1. Preheat oven to 400*.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. 
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk egg whites until foamy
  4. Stir egg whites and water into the dry mixture.
  5. It should be a wet dough but not very sticky.
  6. *Line a baking sheet with parchment paper 
  7. Using your hands, flatten the dough into a circular shape.
  8. I made mine quite thin as it rises slightly in the oven! (see before I added toppings)
  9. **Bake for 5-8min or until crisp to your liking. 
  10. ***Remove from oven and top with desired toppings. 
  11. Place bake in the oven until toppings are warm/cheese is melted. (I put my oven on broil near the end)

Enjoy! 🙂 

Notes:

*I tried baking directly on the pan and while it gives it a nice brown crust, it stuck to the pan quite a bit. If you oil the pan VERY well than this might be a better option for a crispy crust. 

**I baked mine less as I like my crust a little soft, bake it longer or try broiling it for a more crisp crust. 

***I topped mine with 1/4 cup low-carb tomato-basil sauce, mozzarella, basil, tomatoes, sautéed garlic mushrooms, peppers and olives. 

Per Crust: 4F/1.5C(NET)/16P & 3.5g fibre
