Almond Flour & Flax Meal Pizza Dough

Finally! A pizza dough that Maximized Living doctors and patients can prepare, eat, and savour without feeling guilty or bloated, or both!

Enjoy.

Ingredients:

1 ¼ cups Almond Flour

¼ cup ground flax meal

¼ to ½ tsp. kosher or sea salt

¼ tsp. aluminum free baking soda

1 egg, beaten with a whisk

1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp. seasoning of choice – Italian seasoning; roasted garlic powder (optional)


Preparation:

Mix all ingredients together until they form a ball.

Roll the “dough” into a ¼ inch pizza crust on a sheet pan with a silpat liner or piece of parchment paper.

(To make this easier, top the dough with another piece of parchment paper when you roll it out; then peel off the parchment paper when you have it the way you want it.)

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes.

Remove from oven.

Top with your favourite "Maximized" pizza ingredients. Left-over "Maximized" ingredients are fine.

Return the pizza to the oven for another 10-15 minutes (this is a slow, lower heat pizza).

The news provides no answers for adults living with HIV but it can be a landmark victory in the health of future generations. Every year, 300,000 to 400,000 babies are born infected with HIV according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute for Allergies and Infectious Diseases.

The treatment consisted of giving the newborn a three-drug…
