spelt biscuits are wonderful fresh out of the oven. They can also be flattened out slightly and made into a delicious deep-dish pizza crust.
Why use spelt flour instead of wheat flour? Spelt has a low glycemic index and is helpful to those with type 2 diabetes as a natural way to control blood sugar. It offers a great-tasting alternative to wheat flour in creating more 'diabetic-friendly' recipes. Portion control is still important, of course, so enjoy in moderation.
Makes 6-8 biscuits (depending on thickness)
If making a deep-dish pizza crust: Pat the dough into a greased 10" pan, crimping up the edges slightly. Bake until the biscuit / pizza crust is just a minute or two from being done. Add toppings, then place the pizza back into the oven to finish.
Break open these wonderful spelt biscuits and serve with a little fresh butter or just eat plain. If you're using them as a pizza crust, enjoy - it's flaky and soft and crispy all at the same time. Delicious! There are lots of great spelt cookbooks if you need some more inspiration.
