2 tablespoons/1/2 ounce (15g) tapioca flour
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
½ teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons olive oil

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a half sheet pan with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and brush the center with 1 teaspoon of olive oil.

Whisk together the almond flour, tapioca flour, flaxseed, baking soda, and salt. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon of the olive oil, the vinegar, and water, and mix until a soft, sticky dough forms.

Gather the dough into a ball and place it on the parchment/silicone baking mat with a large piece of plastic wrap on top. Roll out (or press) the dough in a circle approximately 7½ Inches in diameter and to a thickness of about ⅙ of an inch. Remove the plastic wrap and, using a pizza wheel score the dough into 8 pita-like wedges.

Bake on the bottom rack for 10 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes then separate the pita wedges.
