Since being diagnosed with Type 1 (.5) diabetes a little over a year ago, one of the things I miss the most is pizza. I have been a pizza lover for as long as I can remember. There are a lot of recipes out there for low carb options but, I haven’t quite found the right one, except.. I came pretty close here the other day while googling around. I did do some changes to the original recipe and will tweak it just a little bit more the next time for (hopefully) that perfect result. I have a few trix up my sleeve 😉

Instead of using flax seed meal like the original recipe, I used ¾ cup soy protein powder and ¾ cup almond flour. As the crust got a bit dry, something I think is a result of the soy protein powder, I will do a little twist next time and see if it can moisten it up just a little. Will let you know how it goes and share the recipe if I succeed! I must say I did quite enjoy the finished product and it had little effect on my blood sugar (yay!)

This is the recipe I used this time:

  • ¾  cup soy protein powder
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of oregano
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 tsp of Stevia or natural sweetener
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbs of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of water

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees Celsius.
  2. Mix dry ingredients first and then add wet and blend well.
  3. Let the dough rest for 5 minutes to thicken up a little
  4. Spread the dough on baking parchment with a rolling pin. (As it’s a little sticky I placed another piece of baking parchment on top and then used the rolling pin. Afterward I peeled the top layer of baking paper off and voila, it was perfect! )
  5. Bake the dough for 15-20 minutes or until it has been cooked through. Check after 15 min and take out if it looks done
  6. Add whichever toppings you have chosen and place the pizza back into the oven for the cheese to melt.

The blog where I found this recipe is my favorite one at the moment; click through for the original recipe + more here: delightedmomma
