➕1/2 cup + 2 tbsp coconut flour (75g)
➕2 tbsp psyllium husk (9g)
➕1/4 tsp salt
➕1 tbsp olive oil (15ml)
➕1 cup lukewarm water - not boiling, think bath temperature (240ml)
Preheat oven to 220C (430F). In a large mixing bowl add the coconut flour, psyllium husk, salt, olive oil and lukewarm water.
🥄 Combine with a spatula first then use your hand and knead the dough for 1 minute. The batter will be very moist at first and dry out as you go and that is what you want. Gather the pieces of dough and form a ball. 💧If it is too dry simply add a bit more water, 1 tablespoon at a time until the dough hold well together.
🥣 Set aside in the mixing bowl, at room temperature, for 10 minutes. It will give time to the fiber in the flour and psyllium husk to absorb the extra moisture.
❇️ Roll out your dough now into a large circle. ❇️
Your pizza base is now ready to be pre-bake (keep your pizza crust on baking paper to bake!). Pre-bake the crust for 12-15 minutes.
Garnish your pizza base and return to the oven for 5-8 minutes or until your cheese is melted and grilled. You can also switch the oven to grill mode for 1-2 minutes at the end of the baking process to grill the cheese even better... Enjoy !! 😍👌🏼
