For weeks now, I have been trying to find a great low carb pizza crust recipe that does not include using cauliflower. I love cauliflower, and I use it a lot, it's just that when I'm craving pizza, I want something that comes as close as possible to the real deal. I initially tried recipes using just almond meal for the flour replacement, and I found that these crusts were more like making pizza on a graham cracker crust. Tasted great, but maybe I'll just modify it for a dessert crust (low carb cheesecake anyone?). 
After seeing a bunch of recipes lately that involve using coconut flour, I started looking for recipes that used both almond meal and coconut flour. This proved to be the right decision, and yielded a crust that wasn't too thick and dessert-like, and more closely resembled a "real" pizza crust. The coconut flour seemed to fluff up the recipe, causing it to be less dense, but still sturdy enough to hold up to a bunch of toppings, and even the extra cheese that I can't seem to help myself from adding. The best part about this pizza is the net carb count. Per slice (crust only), the pizza only has about 5 net effective carbs. As long as you pay attention to your toppings (beware hidden sugar in pizza sauce), this can be a great addition to a low carb diet, and it's very filling as well! In all honesty, I felt like I was cheating when I tried this pizza, and it was great to know that I could actually have a couple of slices of guilt-free pizza! Check out the recipe below, have fun coming up with your own topping combinations, and enjoy!
