Ingredients

Crust:

Topping:

Instructions

  • Preheat your griddle over a medium flame. (If necessary, first spray with non-stick cooking spray or rub with a few drops of olive oil.)
  • Beat the crust ingredients until smooth.
  • Wait until the griddle is hot enough (when drops of water sizzle up).
  • Spread your batter into a circle (about 10 inches, 25cm diameter).
  • After a couple of minutes, flip over.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Line your broiler tray with foil, and place crust on top.
  • Top with tomato sauce, grated cheese, and mozzarella.
  • Broil for a few minutes, until cheese is melted to your liking.
  • Remove from broiler, and enjoy!

Notes

This makes a soft crust pizza. For a crispier crust use a pizza crisper or pizza stone, and bake (instead of broil) until the cheese is melted.
This recipe was developed using a pea protein blend, and I would not recommend using other types of protein powder. If you prefer to use whey protein, see my Sicilian Protein Pizza recipe.
Also, don't leave out or substitute the whole husk psyllium. It gives the crust the bread-like texture we need.
