This yeast-free pizza crust is just enough to serve one! It's also easy to make and quick to bake, coming together in about 30 minutes.
Have you all seen the nifty new buttons at the top of each post? ^^^
You can now skip over all of my jibber jabber and quickly get to the recipe or print it out (though, I'm not sure why you'd do that without seeing it first?...).
Just wanted to point that out in case you missed it!
This recipe has a funny story behind it, though I do worry you might judge me.
You see, I can be an extreme person, particularly with health. More than that, I can be quite rigid with my routine and personal habits.
It's been tough to admit those things over the years, as being easy-going, laid back, and fun-loving are all the things to be!
Recently, we all trooped to Costco to buy some essentials, and as we were rolling out the door, everyone wanted pizza.
Here's where my rigidity comes in, plants its fat behind on the metaphorical couch, and blocks the door to Carefree City...allegory overboard? Sorry, at least there's that nifty new button...^^^
While I've partook of Costco's greasy, cheesy fare more than a few times, most notably the day Sam was born, I tend to feel quite terrible afterwards.
The hubs and the kids seem to be able to get away with eating it without much issue, but it's hit or (more often) a miss for me.
On this day, I took a pass, which ended up good because I concocted this recipe!
This is my answer to those times when I need a pizza for one, in this case, a pizza for one rigidly healthy mom (p.s. this is where you reserve judgment).
The fam can get their Costco deliciousness, and I can still join in with something I feel better eating and honestly enjoy more! Dig? 🙂

- Bake 6-7 minutes.
- Top your crust as desired and bake another 7-8 minutes until the toppings are cooked through.
- Slice and enjoy!
I enjoy my Homemade Pizza Sauce atop this crust.
This recipe is also great when you want to give your kids their own pizza to create! The girls love rolling out their dough and topping it themselves.
