Keto Tomato Pizza With Sunflour Base
Keto Tomato Pizza with Sunflour Base
Light and with a traditional bread texture, this pizza base with sunflower seed flour is 1/2 the carbs of bases made with almond flour. Use a low sugar pasta sauce such as Rao's or Alce Nero. Keep your carbs extra low and grate your cheese yourself. For this recipe I used a block of mozzarella but any mild natural cheese would work (avoid using processed cheese). Jazz it up with some dried rosemary or herbs.
50 g grated natural cheese
50 g sunflower seed flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
a pinch of salt
2 Tablespoons low sugar pasta sauce
100 g grated cheese
1 tsp dried rosemary (optional)
Preheat over to 200 °C . Mix eggs, cheese and apple cider vinegar together in a food processor. Add Sunflour, baking powder and salt, and mix well into a dough.
Place a large square of baking paper on your countertop. Using oiled fingers, remove dough from food processor and form into a ball. Place another large square of baking paper on top of the dough. Using a rolling pin or a heavy bottle, roll the dough to desired size and thickness. Remove the top layer of baking paper. Place dough on a baking sheet.
Pre-bake the base at 200 °C for 10 mins. Add your desired toppings. (At this point, I like to sprinkle some dried rosemary on top of the sauce) and bake the pizza for another 10-12 mins until cheese is melted and lightly brown. Remove and let cool 5 minutes at room temperature and cut into slices.
