Almond Zucchini Pizza Crust (Low Carb, Gluten Free, Clean Eating Paleo)

Getting a little creative again for dinner time tonight. I was wanting a lower carb and super healthy pizza crust! And ofcourse having a vegetable in there of some kind would be an added bonus so with my little almost 4yr old helper we got creating in the kitchen for tonights dinner. Here’s what we came up with and it was really really yummy!!  Something a little different too!!

Almond Zucchini Pizza Crust

makes 1 9 inch pizza

1 cup almond meal
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup grated zucchini (squeezed to get all the juice out)
1 Tbsp parmesan cheese, finely grated
1 Tbsp italian dry herb mix (oregano/basil)
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp cumin powder (I love this spice!)
optional 1/2 tsp onion powder and 1/4 tsp garlic powder (I cant have these, but if my body could handle it then I would have added them in)

Basically combine everything in a bowl to form a dough. And press on a baking tray lined with grease proof paper into a 9inch circle. Bake for 10 minutes at 160 degrees. Add your fave toppings (We added cheese and shredded turkey breast) and bake another 10 minutes. Tip: wet your fingers so the dough doesnt stick to your fingers while pushing it down.  If too stick add a tablespoon of coconut flour.
