  1. Wonderful presentation! I did love this video and do love her demeanor and detailed explanations. I also appreciate how she doesn’t try to get everything perfect. (I tend to get discouraged if things don’t go perfectly while I cook and am working to overcome this!) :)

    I can’t wait to try this!

  2. I made this crust for my husband last night and the almond crust pizza disappeared faster than our traditional crust pizza! Thanks Elana, it’s wonderful.

  3. This looks so good! I think I will bake the dough in my muffin top pan to make individual pizzas. Thanks for your wonderful recipes… I’ll post again when I’ve made them to let you know how it went. God bless you Elana for sharing your talents with us ;)

  4. I used this recipe to make 12 little muffins instead of pizza dough. Off the charts in flavor! I added 2 cloves of ROASTED garlic and 1 T. of minced fresh rosemary to your recipe batter and used 1 cup unblanched almond flour and 1/2 cup blanched. In a convection oven it took 12 minutes in a preheated 350 oven. Please try these as they are killer to use as a small appetizer filled with pecan pimento cheese or just on their own. You could also double this recipe and make dinner rolls or cut biscuits. I am so psyched!

  5. I made the pizza crust & I loved it! great alternative! btw Elana, I looove your website and all your recipes! Thank you so much! I really think I’m able to stick to my gluten free diet due to some of the alternative recipes off website. I am on a gluten free/sugar free diet. I have read your blog, and have learned to experiment w/ almond flour and xylitol to help me get through the tougher days when I’m missing some of my sweets.

  6. Thanks so much for posting this video and showing just how easy it can be. It always helps me to be able to see it being done and it gives me that little extra “push” I need to do it myself. Would love to see more!!

  7. I am making this pizza crust this weekend and adding some rosemary and italian herbs. Can’t wait to try it.

  8. I thought the video was great! I’m making this crust this weekend. I couldn’t figure out how to get a display and print the recipes. Did I miss something?
