7 ounces pizza sauce (we like Ragu®).12 grams
1/2 pound of shredded mozzarella cheese7 grams

PROCEDURE FOR MAKING CRUST

  • In mixing bowl, beat 1 egg. Add dry ingredients. Add just enough water to form a stiff dough ball (about 1/2 cup).
  • Rub a 12 inch pizza pan or a cookie sheet with solid shortening (butter or Crisco), and lightly flour it. Place dough
  • ball directly onto the pan or cookie sheet. Cover entire pan or sheet with plastic wrap and roll dough out until it is
  • flat. Remove plastic wrap.
  • NOTE: Soy flour is not as elastic as wheat flour, and rises very little. It does not have to be rolled into an
  • “ultra-thin” sheet. Therefore we do not recommend rolling the dough on a separate surface and then trying to transfer
  • it to a pizza pan. The rolling pin’s handles will ride on the edges of the pan, automatically creating a sheet of
  • dough that is the proper thickness.
  • Lightly coat dough with olive or other vegetable oil (to keep it from getting soggy).
  • Harden crust by baking at 400 for 10 minutes.
  • Continue to make pizza, or refrigerate/freeze for future use.

PROCEDURE FOR MAKING BASIC TOPPING:

  • Cover dough with pizza sauce. Use about 6 tablespoons (which is ½ of a 14 oz jar) Add 1/2 pound of mozzarella cheese.(Use more or less, according to taste).
  • Bake at 400 for 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

SERVING

Cut into 8 slices. Serve with a tossed salad and a bottle of Michelob® Ultra beer (only 3 grams of carbs per 12 ounce bottle, and it really tastes like beer. Hats off to Michelob!)
