Can you use almond flour to make a thin crust pizza?
Everyone loves a different kind of pizza crust. Some prefer it thick, some like it thin and some like it somewhere in between. When it comes down to it, you can use almond flour to make any type of crust that you want. However, keep in mind that there’s a chance the texture may be a bit different than what you’re expecting.
Almond flour is a great alternative to wheat flour but doesn’t “fluff” up quite like you might be used to. And while it may become crisp when cooking it thinly, it’s more than likely not going to become wafer thin. Baking pizza crust out of almond flour takes some practice to create your desired crust, but you can do it. I believe in you!
