Low Carb Yeast Dough Pizza

One thing we missed eating low carb was pizza. Real pizza. We tried the staple low carb pizza recipe, but it was too cheesy for our taste. We missed the yeasty flavor of a traditional dough. After much experimentation, Mina came up with a dough recipe that was both low carb and reminded us of “real” pizza. This is our end result.

Dough Ingredients (makes two medium or one large pizza):
1 ¼ cup warm water
1 ½ tablespoon yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup vital wheat gluten – Bob’s Red Mill Vital Wheat Gluten
½ cup almond flour – NOW Almond Flour
½ cup oat fiber – LifeSource Foods Oat Fiber 500
½ cup milled flax – Bob’s Red Mill Flaxseed Meal
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
6 drops liquid Splenda – SucraDrops
