For the pizza crust, you will need (I recommend using a kitchen scale for this recipe ):
- 1 medium Egg
- 10 g cheese (1 tbsp) (I used gouda. You can use mozzarella, cheddar, parmesan )
- 10 g psyllium husk
- 10 g homemade tomato sauce
- 20 g water (1 tbsp )
- pinch of salt
For the toppings, you can use anything you like or have in your house. For mine I used:
- 2 slices salami
- 2 slices Bacon
- some Olives
HOW TO PREPARE IT
Step 1: Mix all the ingredients for the crust in a bowl.
Step 2: Take a non-stick pan, put some coconut or olive oil and put it on the stove at low heat. Pour the mixture into the pan and spread the “dough “to give it a pizza crust shape ( like a pancake ).
Step 3: Let it cook on one side for several minutes, until golden and nice, then flip it to the other side.
I added tomato sauce, salami, bacon, olives and more cheese.
Cover the pan until the cheese is deliciously melted and bubbly.
