The first time I made it, I noticed that no one seemed to miss wheat-based pizza crust in the slightest. This coming from an entire family of huge pizza lovers.
Almond Flour Pizza Crust Recipe (Grain Free)
You may be surprised to experience that this almond flour pizza is so very filling .. I can only eat 1/4 of it at one meal. It’s hard to believe, but this recipe is 4 adult servings! If I made this same recipe using wheat flour, I assure you I could eat the entire pizza myself in one sitting.
If you make the crust with freshly ground flour (learn how to make almond flour at the link), it is even more filling than when you make it with store-bought blanched or natural versions. The reason is that homemade is more nutritious, which signals the brain that you are full faster.
The biggest bonus is that it tastes positively gourmet!
