I admit that when things get really limited and you start to use strange concoctions like gooey flax seed meal paste, ground up pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds, it is easy to have little hope that the recipe is going to be any good at all!
But even though this pizza crust is free of eggs, nuts, grains, gluten, sugar, dairy and yeast (all the things pizza is normally made with), it is mighty delicious!
I am continuing to be stretched by my own restrictions as well as others who are looking for recipes free of many of the common allergens including eggs and nuts. I found the original version of this recipe at Grainfreefoodies and from there made it free of eggs and added a bit of honey to balance out the taste of the seed flours. (It was already grain and nut free.)
I wasn’t sure how it was going to be replacing the eggs with the flax seed meal. My husband even said he was “scared of this one.” He actually thought it was going to taste like cardboard when I told him what the ingredients were.
We were all pleasantly surprised. The crust was a bit crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. It held together very well. And the crust had a very nice flavor, kind of nutty even though I didn’t use any nuts. And the last minute idea of adding the roasted butternut squash ended up being a great idea. Elijah liked it too, and he’s been getting more picky lately.
