"This is a great pizza crust that you can hold in your hand and bite into, as opposed to most GF crusts that you have to eat with a fork. It has a great consistency and tastes like the real thing. For those not familiar with gluten free baking, this will not have the same consistency as a regular dough while you are making it, but trust me it will cook out just like a regular crust."

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place the shredded cheese in a food processor and pulse until granular.
Pour cheese into a large bowl and add almond meal, flour, flaxseed, nutritional yeast, onion powder, garlic powder and salt; mix to combine.
Add the water, olive oil and eggs and mix well.
Pour the mixture on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and top with another sheet of parchment paper.
Press the dough down and shape into a 14 to 15 inch round trying to maintain the same thickness throughout. (You can do this with your hands or a rolling pin).
Carefully remove the top layer of parchment paper and place the pizza crust in the preheated oven.
Bake for 20 minutes and remove from oven.
Top the cooked crust with your favourite sauce, cheese and toppings and cook for another ten minutes.
Broil for another 2 to 3 minutes, until cheese starts to bubble.
Place on a cooling rack for a couple of minutes before slicing into the pizza.
