The Talbott Family Pizza Recipe
The Talbotts have been a part of our Force Family for 2.5 years – John and DeLeigh are part of our Adult PT program, and their kids, Johnny and Maddie, train with us in Sport Performance. Within the past few months, as a family they’ve been experimenting with cooking, trying to eat foods that makes them feel better – and that process has involved recreating some of their favorite meals in healthier ways. It has also become a bonding experience for DeLeigh and Maddie!
Lately, they’ve been enjoying pizza crust made with almond flour for a low-carb, lower calorie alternative. DeLeigh says, “the pizza crust was homemade and was DELICIOUS!”
DeLeigh has shared the recipe – including the nutrition breakdown – below. For pizza lovers looking to enjoy one of their favorite foods in a healthier way, give this one a try. Doesn’t this look delicious?

- Put all the wet ingredients in a small bowl, mix them with whisk. Put the bowl aside.
- Stir to blend all the dry ingredients. Spices can be used but a great flavor should be added into the dough. It would be better to add until ½ tablespoon of garlic powder and ¼ tablespoon of chili pepper flakes. Then, add the wet ingredients in order to form a dough.
- Take greased two sheets of parchment and roll up the dough to make a thin square or circle according to the baking sheet or pizza pan. Insert into oven with 375°F during 20-25 minutes until the edges are getting crisp and golden. Live aside about 20 minutes to make it crunchy crust. Garnish with toppings and let them be cooked into oven or grill for a few minutes. Can be divided into 8 portions.
