Sometimes, we just want some pizza. Instead of suppressing those urges and cravings, which can eventually lead to caving and binging, try this healthy sprouted pizza ‘crust’ instead! This gluten-free, paleo, low carb, high fat sprouted crust isn’t your traditional pizza crust, but with the right toppings, it sure does the trick. Plus, it offers all of the benefits that come from eating healthy fats and fibre rich foods. For those with a gluten intolerance or folks on a carb diet, who don’t have time to make a cauliflower crust, this is a great alternative!

- Prep Time: 5 Minutes
- Cook Time: 15 minutes
- Yields: 6” Crust
Preheat the oven to 325°
In a small bowl mix together the almond flour, sprouted chia flax, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and italian spice blend until combined.
Crack the egg and drizzle the oil into the dry mixture and combine.
Spoon and spread your mixture evenly onto the parchment paper.
Place your dough in the oven and bake for roughly 10-12 minutes.
After 10-12 minutes, check to see if your crust is ready. If the crust easily lifts off of the parchment paper like a cracker, that means it’s ready! If you notice that the edges of your pizza crust are browning, this is also an indication that your crust is ready for topping!
Remove your crust from the oven and dress with your favourite toppings. It can be enjoyed as is, or can be placed back in the oven to heat the toppings.
