I think I have perfected a wheat free dough recipe, which can be used in a variety of recipes, such as: pizza, pies, tarts and slices.


140g almond meal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 egg

Mix all ingredients together. It can be difficult to roll with a rolling pin. I prefer to press the dough into the tin and flatten with a spatula. I always use silicon baking paper underneath.

If you need a sweet dough, just add 1 tablespoon of xylitol or stevia..

You could also add a little grated cheese to the savoury dough

The total carb amount for the dough is 34g.

To make a pizza, flatten the dough onto a baking tray, and bake until golden. My oven has two elements, so both sides brown at once, but you may need to flip to cook the other side. Then I add the topping: tomato sauce, cheese, capsicum, mushrooms, olives and bacon. return to the oven, but use the grill element to cook the topping. The topping is low carb, but there is a small amount in the tomato sauce.

  1. Looks great Lisa! I love homemade pizzas as you can control the amount and quality of toppings so it's healthier.
