On Monday we made a flax meal pizza crust infused with herbs. I had leftover carrot mash from carrot juice and was unsure how to use it when I had a brilliant idea, to use it in the pizza as an oil replacement. I tried it and had glorious success. The idea was inspired from the baking gods and goddesses and I am thankful!
The dough was light, airy and easy to work with. I kneaded it with love so it would turn out very good for my husband. He had worked hard spreading his homemade compost around our new plants! I wanted to show my appreciation so I tried very hard to make this pizza to his liking!
Once kneaded I rolled the dough into a big plump ball that made my heart smile. It looked just right! I placed it on a pre-greased cookie sheet and pressed it into the shape of a pizza pie with a hearty crust. I baked the pizza for about 30 + minutes as I prepared homemade pizza sauce and toppings. My personal preference is to get the pizza crust brown around the edges and almost completely done to where the center pops back up vs. sinks. Then I add the sauce and toppings and bake for another 15 minutes give or take until done, slice and serve! I used to only bake it for 15 minutes but then had to bake the pizza for sometimes 40 + minutes waiting for the center to be done and not be soggy! This works for me and I hope it works for you!
This crust was dare I say almost perfect. It even formed a big bubble in the center as if it were from a pizza shop! There is no yeast, oil, sugar or refined flours here only really healthy ingredients so you can enjoy more than one slice and still feel great! :)
