This pizza is a fantastic option to reduce your carbohydrate intake for the day. Although this pizza recipe is low carb, the ground almonds are energy-dense, which also makes the pizza quite rich. So, we recommend bulking this recipe out by serving it with a large side salad! We’ve had feedback that this base can taste a little sweeter than what you’d normally expect from a pizza base, so we’ve added a good dose of herbs and spices to counterbalance the sweeter flavours from the almonds.

Recipe: Almond flour pizza

Prep and cooking time: 25mins

Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 230g ground almonds
  • 2 tbsp wholemeal flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1.5 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1.5-2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 portobello mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • ½ small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 small handful fresh basil leaves
  • 125g mozzarella, thinly sliced
  • 100g cheddar cheese, grated

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C or 180°C fan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix the ground almonds, wholemeal flour, coconut oil, herbs and spices,  a pinch of salt and pepper, and the eggs until well combined.
  3. Break dough into halves, or if you have a large baking tray you can make 1 supersize pizza. Press the dough ball out onto the baking paper with your palms and fingertips, working slowly to press the dough out until roughly 1cm thick.
  4. Bake for 10-12 mins until lightly golden, take out of the oven once golden and set aside.
  5. Prepare the vegetables while the pizza dough is baking.
  6. Once the pizza has par-baked, cover with tomato paste, peppers, mushrooms, red onion, basil, mozzarella and cheddar.
  7. Reduce heat to 180°C or 160°C fan and cook for 15mins, or until cheese is melted and golden on top.
  8. Serve with a large side salad.

Hi there,
Just looking at this almond flour pizza recipe- on the app it says it serves 4 people, on here it serves 2. I think serving 2 is wrong, based purely on the calories. Please can you clarify?
