Awesome individual pizza crust started in the microwave and finished in the oven..and no grains.
Important note:
The above recipe for a Flax Pizza Crust is an avoid for all types as it:
1.) Advises the cooking (indeed the browning!) of flax meal at temperatures well above the smoke point of flax oil (225ºF, the recipe recommends cooking it at 350ºF *1)
2.) Advises the use of microwave cooking in the process.
As Dr. D'Adamo has said here: , 'microwaves change the molecular structure of foods in unknown ways' and should be avoided for heating foods.
As always, use common sense when preparing a meal.
