Flax Pizza Crust

I am seriously on a pizza kick! Name a food and I will try to come up with a pizza! lol I have made cauliflower pizza, we make tortilla pizzas, use pre-made dough and of course order from a pizza parlor every so often when the true “pizza” craving comes about.

I decided to investigate on how to use ground flax seeds and make it into a pizza. This is what I came up with and I hope you all enjoy it just as much as my family did.

This will make an 8-10″ pizza, about 1/4 inch thick.

Bake at 350* for 10 minutes. Remove, add all toppings and bake an additional 15 minutes.

With my passion for nutrition and fitness, I hope I can spread awareness about PWS and create healthy recipes for her to enjoy with never feeling deprived. She has given me new hope to move forward with my passion in nutrition and become a Registered Dietitian. My focus will be on childhood obesity, emphasizing in PWS. I look forward to sharing my journey with you all! ***Please note I am not a Registered Dietitian. I would classify myself as a "nutrition snob."
