- 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
- 1⁄2 teaspoon basil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon oregano
- 1⁄4 teaspoon thyme
- 1⁄2 cup almond flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg (free range, grass fed)
- 3⁄4 cup plus 1 tablespoon warm water (105-115°F)
- Tomato paste or tomato sauce

- Special equipment: an 11- to 12-inch pizza pan; an offset spatula
- Lightly oil pizza pan. Put oven rack in lowest position and preheat oven to 325°F.
- Mix flour, salt, & spices and egg in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed. Add water and 1 teaspoon oil and mix until just combined, scraping down side of bowl occasionally.
