    Pizza Crust:
    2 cups white Flour
    1 cup Flax Meal
    1 package Yeast
    1 cup water
    2 Tbsp Olive Oil
    1/4 tsp salt

    Pizza Toppings
    1 lb Lean Ground Beef
    1 Medium Onion, chopped
    1 Green pepper, chopped (optional)

Only add enough of the remaining 1 cup of white flour until the dough is not sticky and can be easily spread into a 14" deep dish pizza pan. Set aside pizza pan and prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Brown the hamburger meat with salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, some of the oregano and some of the basil. In a separate bowl, mix the tomato sauce, tomato paste, minced garlic, remaining oregano and the remaining basil.

Spread the tomato sauce mixture on to the pizza crust.
