Almond Crust Pizza

Almond crust pizza for 2 people

Ingredients

3/4 cup of almond meal

1 large egg

Salt and black pepper

Optional herbs such as teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary, sage or oregano

A tablespoon of olive oil

For the topping

1 onion chopped

2-4 cloves of garlic crushed

1 tablespoon tomato puree

2 tomatoes chopped

Salt and black pepper

Mozzarella or parmesan cheese

Method.

Pre-heat the oven to 325F. Mix together the crust ingredients in a bowl. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and grease it with some olive oil. Spread out the pizza crust mixture to about 8 inches in diameter and about ¼ inch thick. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile sauté the onions and garlic for about 10 minutes until they are soft, add tomato puree and cook for a few more minutes before adding the chopped tomatoes. Cook for another 5 minutes to soften up the tomatoes.

Then assemble the pizza with the tomato sauce, cheese as desired, and any other toppings of your choice.

Bake the pizza for 15 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
