Hello, anyone out there know of a recipe for a pizza crust with soy flour? I've never tried soy flour, but I'm willing to try it for a pizza! I'm expecting my experimental crust to turn out a really thin, fairly hard crust. I don't know what the flavor will be like, let's hope for the best.

Also, does anyone know how to make crackers out of this stuff? Crackers shouldn't be too hard to figure out. :confused:

Thanks!

Psyllium Pizza Crust

3/4 cup combination soy and oat flours.. reserving small amount of oat flour to flour board with

2 T psyllium
1 T oil
1 T baking powder (3 to 6 g C, depending on the brand)
1/4 t salt
2 T soy protein (0 C)
3/4 C unflavored seltzer water, at room temperature

Put flours, psyllium, baking powder, and salt into a bowl; add seltzer and oil and mix thoroughly. Let the dough stand for about 10 minutes, giving the psyllium time to expand. Add ~ 2 T soy protein, the batter will be somewhat sticky, but firm enough to hold its shape. Lightly flour a board and roll out to desired thickness...I like a thin and crispy crust so I roll it out to a thin thickness...Place into a greased pizza pan. Add you favorite toppings and bake in a 425 degree oven for 20 minutes....

This is an approximation of the carb count for crust.. the combination of the soy and oat flours would be around 36 carbs; psyllium would be around 4 carbs...baking powder...the kind I have here is 3 carbs and the rest of the ingredients have no carbs so let's add this up:

43 carbs divided by 12 small pieces of pizza would average about 3.6 carbs for the crust...

43 carbs divided by 8 medium pices of pizza would be 5.7 carbs for the crust....



I have been using this recipe for about three years now and it makes for a great pizza crust...just remember to adjust ingredients so that you have a workable dough the consistency of pizza dough....Bonnie
