Interested in trying a low carb and gluten free pizza crust that even a teenager will love? This crust made from coconut flour got thumbs up from my picky daughter.
I have returned from a week long vacation and am ready to get back into low carb cooking. Before I left, I had been experimenting with making a pizza crust out of coconut flour. My first try resulted in a bland and spongy bread. I received several suggestions on my Facebook page on how to improve the recipe. I added ground flax seed to get rid of the sponginess. The added flax really made a difference and resulted in a much crisper crust. I like pizza crust that is thin and crispy so the flax meal was a great addition. To fix the taste, I added more seasoning as well as a little olive oil.
I warned my picky daughter that the delicious smelling pizza had a “special” crust on it. She was still willing to try it because I had already sampled it and told her it wasn’t bad. My daughter’s favorite frozen pizza is Freshetta so her comment was “It’s okay, but it’s no Freshetta.” Just the fact that she finished the slice without a complaint is reason enough to call the recipe a success.
