Low Carb Sunflower Seed & Linseed/Flaxseed Pizza

Tired of cauliflower pizza bases I’ve been experimenting with seed flour bases and have come up with this recipe for a low carb pizza.  It’s actually  more of a pancake / flat bread than a pizza base but worked very well in our pizza oven.

As almond flour is so expensive I tend to substitute it with  seed based flours which is considerably cheaper and very healthy.

Mix with the baking powder and salt.  Then add the rest of the ingredients and stir until there are no lumps.
Melt coconut oil or butter in a large pan and pour in the batter.
 Frying banting base
 When the bottom is brown and the base is firm enough to handle carefully slide it onto a cutting board, put the pan over it and flip.  Cook until the bottom half is done.
Picking up banting base
 Slide the base out of the pan onto a pizza shovel, put on your toppings and pop into the pizza oven.  Of course this can be cooked in an electric or gas oven as well.
Pizza into oven
 Take out when done and finish off with rest of the topping. Delicious guilt free pizza !
