FOOD FOR THE WEEKEND: Andrea’s Healthy Almond Crust Pizza Recipe

Andrea’s healthy almond-crusted pizzaliciousness
Adapted a bit from this recipeIngredients:
Crust:
1 Cup Almond Meal/Flour
1/2 cup arrow root flour
1/4 cup garbanzo bean flour (optional)
1 Egg
1 Tsp Olive Oil
dash salt
dash garlic powder (optional)
dash italian seasonings (optional)

Sauce:
1 Can Diced or pureed Tomatoes
dash italian seasonings
dash garlic powder (or more if you like garlic like me)
dash crushed red pepper if you like it spicey

1. In a saucepan, combine all ingredients.
2. Simmer on stove for approximately 15 minutes while crust is baking.

Toppings:
Whatever you want!
I used mozzarella, (but provolone and/or swiss is yummy too) hot peppers, olives, pepperoni

Instructions:
Crust:
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
2. Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl (or food processor which is how i do it). This should give you a ball of “dough”. If your dough is too “mushy” (like mine was), continue to add the arrow root or garbanzo bean flour until you get a good consistency.
3. USE A NON STICK BAKING SHEET! This is VERY important if you want your pizza slices to come off in one piece.
4. Press your dough on the sheet nice and even about 1/4 inch in the middle and 1/2 inch at the edges. This doesn’t work like regular dough, so you’ll just have to pat it and spread it until you get the desired thickness. It tends to get crisper the thinner you go, but don’t go too thin or it’ll tear.
5. Put crust in the oven for 15 minutes. It should look slightly golden brown when you take it out.

Put it all together:
1. After crust comes out of the oven, spread sauce evenly over crust.
2. Add your cheese and toppings evenly on top of sauce.
3. Put back in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 15 more minutes. Cheese should be evenly melted.
4. Slice and enjoy!
