  5. Add the egg, salt, rosemary (or other flavourings) and ground almonds, mix gently.
  6. Place in between 2 baking sheets and roll into a circular pizza shape. remove the top baking sheet. If the mixture hardens and becomes difficult to work with, pop it back in the microwave for 10-20 seconds to soften again.
  7. Make fork holes all over the pizza base to ensure it cooks evenly.
  8. Place the baking sheet with the pizza base on a baking tray or pizza stone, and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until brown.
