There's no denying that wheat has a few awesome properties that I now and then miss while baking. This is especially true when making pizza. I've tried various recipes for pizza crusts, and either they end up like a big sponge or like an omelette on steroids. That was untill I found this recipe that gives quite a decent pizza crust (still not like a proper wheat-crust, but good enough for putting on all the yummy pizza fillings). I've found the recipe on the fabulous blog My partner, who isn't much of a low-carb fan, actually approves of this pizza. 

Here's the recipe for the pizza base: 

4 eggs
4 dessert spoons of cream 
2 dessert spoons of oil 
1 teaspoon baking powder 
2 dessert spoons psyllium husk fibre
200 ml grated cheese 
2-3 dessert spoons ground sesame seeds 

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Celcius. 
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and let the mixture swell for approximately 15 minutes. Spread mixture out on a baking tray covered with baking paper, using a spatula. Cook until golden. Cooking time will vary depending on how thin / thick you have applied the dough on the baking tray. 

Then, remove from oven and add whatever pizza toppings you feel like!
I like to spread pesto across the base, then add some pepperoni, bacon, onion and paprika, and LOTS of cheese. Did I mention lots of cheese? 

Put the pizza back into oven and continue to cook until the cheese on top is melted.

Bon appetite! 

If I remember correctly, this pizza is made doubling  the recipe
above. I tend to make huge pizzas, then have it for lunch
several days in a row. 


  1. Hi,
    I am really impressed with your recipes and will definately try them especially the pizza. I was just wondering about the ingredient measurements. How much is 200ml of grated cheese?? Is there a formula for conversion?

    Thank you so much for your generosity in sharing

    1. Thank you :) 200 mL is 0.85 cup, according to this metric conversion calculator that I found here: . I know most American recipes uses the cup measure, whereas most recipes I come across from Scandinavian sources uses mL.

      1 liter equals 10 deciliters, equals 100 centiliters equals 1000 milliliters (mL)
      1 cup equals 235 mLs.

      Hope that was of some help! Don't hesitate if you have questions about further recipes as well.

  2. That pizza looks yummy, but I have a question about the measurements. My set of measuring spoons doesn't have a dessert spoon, but does have a tablespoon (15mL) and half tablespoon (7.4mL). I'm in Australia too. :) I don't like using the cutlery spoons because of the difference in spoon sizes in different cutlery sets.

    Can you please let me know which of these I should use for the cream and oil?

    Thanks. I love your blog.
