Flour-less [LowCarb & GF] Mozzarella Bites or Pizza Crust

One of the annoyances of my wheat and corn allergy is finding a good pizza crust.

Bob’s Red Mill has a great pizza crust that I like, but it has too much sodium (and carbs, not to knock em’) for my taste. Burton’s Grill makes an amazing pizza that is gluten-free, but it on the pricey side for an everyday treat. And American Flatbread? Well it’s pure bliss but either all the way in New York City or Vermont.

I found a recipe from The Nourished Life, that I decided to twist into “mozzarella bites” or like today, I made it into a pizza crust. And let me tell you, I can now have pizza everyday if I wanted to. This recipe is flour-less, low-carb and gluten-free! Personally, I would say it is grain-free too but there is a debate on whether flax is a grain or not. I suggest you use your own judgment call on that one.

Any who, there are plenty of omega 3’s in these bites/ crust. Not to mention over 10g of protein and  over 5g of fiber! If you want to try and make a flax egg, non-dairy yogurt and use a rice/ soy cheese to make it vegan, totally be my guest! I would love to know. Or my next attempt is to try it with 2 egg whites instead of a whole egg to reduce the fat. Maybe you can try that one too? Okay, on the the recipe. Enjoy!

Flour-less Mozzarella Bites or Pizza Crust Ingredients:

  • 1 Large Egg (or try to egg whites or flax egg)
  • 1/2 Cup Shredded Skim Mozzarella Cheese (or your choice!)
  • 2 Tbsps of Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 3 Tbsps Ground Flax Seeds
  • 1 tsp Olive Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder (maybe add Italian seasoning?)
  • 1/8 tsp Baking Powder
  • Dash of Sea Salt & Pepper
  • Parsley for Garnish

Preheat oven to 375 Degrees;

Prepare the bites/ crust ingredients by first whisking the egg with dash of sea salt and pepper. Then combine remaining ingredients together until you form someway of a “dough ball.” You make need to add a couple teaspoons extra if it’s too wet. Then take the “dough ball” and divide into four-six little bites and place on a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. (Note: if you make the pizza, spray your hands with a bit of non-stick cooking spray/ oil and spread the “dough ball” thin onto a pizza pan. Then cook the crust for 20 minutes first, add the toppings then put in for another 10 minutes.)Cook  the bites for 25-30 minutes (depending on your oven). Remove an let cool for about 5 minutes then eat as is, dip into pizza sauce or eat like a pizza! I made a spinach, garlic and artichoke pizza was total heaven!Question: What are YOUR favorite pizza toppings?
