Flax Pizza Crust (GF, Keto, Paleo)


This crust can be kept in the refrigerator for a few days until ready to use. If you would like to freeze it, do so after step 7, and freeze flat.


  • 3 cups Flora Flax Meal (CA) or Flora Organic Brown Flax (US), ground
  • 1 ½ tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp dried herbs (pizza seasoning, Italian seasoning, or oregano and/or basil)
  • 1 cup water
  • 6 Tbsp of oil (Flora Sacha Inchi Oil, Flora Extra Virgin Olive Oil, or avocado oil)
  • 4 large eggs, whisked lightly
  • 3-6 tbsp raw sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, or a mix
  • Optional: Up to 3½ cup parmesan cheese
  • Optional: 1 packet traditional dry yeast + 1 tbsp. honey


  1. Optional: Proof 1 packet of traditional dry yeast in lukewarm water and add 1 tsbp. honey. After 5 minutes, add yeast mixture to bowl with the eggs and oil. After the dough is blended together in step 4, give it time to rise in a warm, draft-free spot. Continue as normal.
  2. Heat oven to 425 F.
  3. In a medium bowl, blend flax meal, salt, garlic powder, baking powder, and herbs.
  4. Add water, oil, and eggs, and mix very well. Let sit for about 5 minutes to thicken.
  5. Add seeds (and cheese, if using) and stir.
  6. Press dough out to desired thickness on a large piece of oiled parchment paper. With oiled fingers, form a rim and shallow indentations in the crust to hold sauce.
  7. Place on a pizza pan and bake for 12 to 16 minutes until cooked.
  8. Remove, top as desired, and cook until done.
