Yeast-Free Sprouted Spelt Pizza Crust

Yeast-Free Pizza Crust

My family loves to have pizza atleast once a week.  So, long ago I had to come up with a way to make pizza night healthier.  This recipe is yeast-free as one of my consistent health issues is fighting candida or yeast.  I try to eat yeast-free most of the time, but I do have another crust recipe that I will post at a later date that has active dry yeast as one of the ingredients.  One thing that I like about this recipe is that the dough does not have to rise.  You can make it while the oven preheats.  Generally, I top this crust with low sugar tomato sauce, lots of veggies and goat cheese.  The picture I have here is strictly because I love my children so much.  They like Cheese ONLY!!  Unless, of course, I puree veggies into the tomato sauce, which I do most often.  Spinach works really nice in that the kids can’t even tell it’s there.  This crust is a bit sticky, so keep your flour close by as you will need it for dusting.  Also, get your oven as hot as it will allow and the crust bakes nice and crunchy.  Add this nutritious meal as part of your weekly plan and get your kids involved in the kitchen.  Enjoy!

 

Yeast-Free Sprouted Spelt Pizza Crust

2 cups sprouted spelt flour – plus more for dusting

1 tsp aluminum free baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp sea salt

1 TBSP ground flaxseed

1 cup warm water

olive oil for coating

Preheat oven to highest temperature possible.  Combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl.  Whisk together until well incorporated.  Add warm water and mix.  You can even do this entire process in an upright mixer if you have one.   Once the dough is well combined, form into a ball and coat with olive oil.  If the dough seems too sticky, just add a bit more flour until you can easily form.  Roll out the dough and place all toppings on top.  Bake approximately 6-10 minutes depending on your oven temperature.
