Low Carb Pizza with Flax Meal Crust

Laura Dolson
This is a variation of my flax meal focaccia bread, which is a dense "good for you" type of bread. It makes a pizza that is about 12 inches in diameter, although you can spread it thinner and larger if you want. More Low Carb Pizza

This was the worst pizza crust ever! it was more like eating bread. it did not stay crisp under the sauce and cheese. And the flavor was bland.
