Grain-Gluten-Free Primal Pizza Crust

As you can probably tell, since the last three posts were recipes, mama is growing hungrier and hungrier with this little babe growing inside!  I've had a lingering craving for some pizza but knew I'd feel like doggy doo after indulging in the real thing.  Especially since I cannot consume less than five slices of the real deal.  But tonight I sent the hubby out for the ingredients I came across in this recipe over at Primal Matriarch.  It was a hit!  We were all stoked on it, including the wee one, and since almond flour is so filling,  two slices did the trick for me.  I even used some of the leftover dough and modified it a bit to make some of her primal biscuits and they were MAGICALLY DELICIOUS!  Yum!  Here's the recipe for the pizza crust:

AndreAnna's Grain/Gluten-Free "Primal" Pizza Crust

What you need:

*3 c. almond flour

*1 c. sour cream/plain organic yogurt

*1/2 c. grated Parmesan

*pinch salt

*1 egg

*1/2 tsp baking soda

*fresh parsley (optional)

What you do:

1.  Mix dry ingredients

2.  Beat egg into sour cream and slowly add to the dry mixture.

3.  Beat until well blended.

4.  Mixture will be batter-like and not dough-like, so you must SPREAD this with a spatula onto parchment paper, about 1/4-in thick.
5.  YES, it HAS to be parchment. Trust me.

6.  This amount makes three small pizza crusts in the size shown. If you're not going to eat them all, half the recipe. They do not reheat very well; they tend to get soggy.

7.  Bake at 350 for around 30 minutes or until brown all the way over.
8.  Top with whatever your heart desires. The possibilities are endless!!! I was just in the mood for a good ol' pepperoni pie!
9.  Stick back in the oven for five minutes to melt the cheese and toppings.
10.  Enjoy!!
