INGREDIENTS:


Crust

  • 2 eggs

  • ½ cup mayonnaise

  • ¾ cup almond flour

  • 1 tbsp ground psyllium husk powder

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • ½ tsp salt


Topping

  • Large handful mushrooms

  • 1 tbsp green pesto

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • ½ cup sour cream or crème fraîche

  • 150g shredded cheese

  • salt and pepper


METHOD:

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C.

  2. Whisk together eggs and mayonnaise. Add remaining ingredients and combine well. Let sit for 5 minutes.

  3. With the help of a lightly oiled rolling pin or spatula, spread out the batter on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. It shouldn't be thicker than 1 cm.

  4. Bake for 10 minutes. The crust should be a light golden brown; don't overdo it. Remove from oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Turn crust out onto a rack or cutting board and remove parchment paper.

  5. Cut the mushrooms in thin slices and mix with pesto and olive oil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper, and combine well.

  6. Spread a layer of sour cream (or crème fraiche) on the crust. Top with cheese and the mushroom mixture.

  7. Place pizza back onto baking sheet (with baking paper) and return to the oven and bake for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Ensure that the edges don't get too much color.

  8. Serve with a fresh salad.
