I just had the BEST pizza crust yet (of the ones that I've tried).  It's got a crusty biscuit texture with plenty of flavor.  My picky eater went back for thirds.

Almond Flour Pizza Crust

  • 2 c. almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 3/4 - 1 c. mozz cheese or Italian cheese mix

Preheat oven to 350°.  In a large bowl whisk together almond flour, garlic powder, salt, and baking soda.  In another bowl whisk eggs and olive oil together, then stir into the almond flour mixture.  Add cheese and work it in with your hands until well mixed.  Spread dough on a greased pizza pan and bake for 10 minutes.

Remove crust from oven, top with your favorite toppings, and bake for another 12 to 15 minutes until cheese in the toppings is melted and bubbling.

I looked into Quinoa and Almond Flour 2 weeks ago so I could make some bread and experiment instead of using regular flour. I found both in the bulk section for $7.99 a pound!!! Since my bread recipes make 3 to 8 loaves I cannot pay $7.99.  I would need a lot> LOL

I buy my almond flour right from Honeyville Farms' site for $66 for 10 lb.  I and a friend have been looking into buying some wholesale for just under $5 a lb.

Wholesale for $5  a pound would be better. Is this at a local place near you or online?

$5 -I could do that to try it and see if I like it; $7.99 is too much . What if I do not like it? LOL

It was a local place, but I haven't looked online much, either.

There are MANY other recipes that use almond flour.  I've got great recipes for chocolate chip cookies or waffles.  I've made pie crusts and cakes with it, too.  I'm willing to share the recipes if you're interested.

To  be honest, after having almond flour I cannot stand the taste of whole wheat or white flour anymore.  WW or white is almost bitter.

If you are looking to try almond flour out go to trader joes (if you have one near you). They have small bags for around 4 bucks
