I wanted pizza. I grabbed a jar of amaranth seeds, poured 1/4 c. of them into my (clean) coffee grinder and whirred them around with some chia seeds. Then I added a tablespoon of flax seed mill and 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. I sprinkled in a pinch of garlic powder and added water until it became a stiff dough. I coated my pizza stone with olive oil and spread, patted and mashed the 'dough' out into a very very thin 9"-10" circle on the stone.
After that, I baked it for a few minutes at 400F degrees until it began to sizzle. It seemed to look lightly cooked and so I pulled it out and added my toppings. My choices were sauce, 6 cheese Italian blend, broccoli and mushrooms. I baked until toppings were hot and melted and the crust was very crisp.
I removed it to a baking rack as carefully as I could by slicing it into pieces first. This was a great quick, low carb pizza! It turned out to be everything I could have wanted.
So, to recap:
1/4 c. of amaranth seeds ground finely into flour
(or probably any kind of flour--maybe a pinch more because it fluffs up as it grinds)
1 tsp. of chia seeds grinded (this adds proteins, healthy fats and fiber)
1 tbsp. of flax meal (I grind my own and keep it in the freezer)
1/2 c. shredded blend of cheese (I used a Mexican blend because it's what I had)
Garlic Powder (optional)
a bit of water to form dough--maybe an 1/8 - 1/4 cup? Sorry, not sure.
Bake for 8-10 minutes at 400F
