Instructions

  • Mix together, flours, psyllium husk, baking powder, salt, yeast.
  • Mix using the paddle of electric mixer.
  • Mix together warm water and oil and slowly add in steady stream until incorporated.
  • Mix for about six minutes on medium.
  • The dough will be very sticky, almost like a batter, but will pull away from the sides with a spatula.
  • Remove bowl from mixer and top with plastic wrap or 1 1/2 hours or until you see that the dough is bubbly. Use spatula to look at the dough.
  • I made one 15 inch pizza and one ten inch personal pizza. You can also make (2) 11 inch pizzas.
  • You want your dough about 1/4 inch thick with thicker edges.
  • Place dough in center of your baking pan.
  • Spray a piece of plastic wrap with baking spray.
  • Using a big spatula like the OXO smooth out. You can also use your hands and then use the spatula once you take the plastic off, to smooth out.
  • Place in a cold oven.
  • Set the temperature to 325 and bake for 45 to 50 minutes. Smaller 10 inch sized pizzas will be done at 40 minutes. Larger pizzas take up to 55 minutes.
  • Remove and and put toppings on. (You can freeze cooled crusts).
  • If you do freeze, you can top and put in oven frozen.
  • To Make PIzza:
  • Heat Oven to 500 degrees.
  • Place toppings on pizza.
  • Bake for about 8 -10 minutes or until cheese is bubbly. We baked the largest pizza for 15 minutes.
