Best Paleo Pizza Crust Recipe (Yeast & Gluten-Free)

Best Paleo Pizza Crust Recipe (Yeast & Gluten-Free)

Whenever my family has a pizza craving, this homemade pizza crust is our go-to recipe. It is so easy, delicious and takes little effort and time to throw together. We live waaaay out in the country, so there are not any pizza joints in sight, or healthy ones for that matter...this is our solution.

Besides being a fun little project with the kids, making a homemade pizza means you get to control the ingredients. So let's talk about the flours in this crust recipe. It’s really such a miraculous thing that happens when you combine these three, (almond, tapioca and coconut), paleo flours together.  The texture and chewy crust that forms is a complete miracle in my book.  I love the fact that you do not need one ounce of yeast or gluten. Who wants to mess with the extra steps of waiting on the yeast/dough to rise anyway? Certainly not me...and there are some not so pleasant potential side-effects and health concerns that can arise when consuming these two ingredients.

Ingredients To Make This Paleo Pizza Crust

  • avocado oil
  • eggs
  • apple cider vinegar
  • tapioca flour
  • almond flour
  • coconut flour
  • Italian seasoning
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • sea salt
  • palm shortening
  • sea salt

I once heard a wise man make the statement, "what makes bread rise?" Could the same yeast that makes bread rise also make inflammation rise in our bodies? Some triggers are headaches and pain, just to name a few. These things are not natural and just don't happen without something being the root cause. Well, it all made perfect sense to me, therefore I eliminated yeast from my diet. And the result?? My neck & back pain have totally disappeared. It truly is a miracle and I love sharing this good news to bring hope and knowledge to you.

I promise you will not miss those ingredients at all. With my recipe, you can enjoy this special treat and still feel good later. In fact, it will take you back to your favorite, authentic pizza joint. I think you will be amazed that it tastes like the real deal. I must mention, whatever toppings you decide to add, make sure to include fresh minced garlic after applying the sauce. This is what makes the pizza. It is a MUST!

How To Make This Paleo Pizza Crust

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a bowl, whisk together tapioca flour, coconut flour, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder and sea salt. 

In another bowl, whisk together eggs, avocado oil, apple cider vinegar and pour into dry ingredients. Combine together until dough forms.

Transfer dough to a piece of parchment paper sprinkled with 1-2 tablespoons of tapioca flour then sprinkle another 1-2 tablespoons tapioca flour on top of dough.  Pat the dough all over until stickiness disappears...(may need a little more tapioca flour).

Grease pizza pan with palm shortening and lay dough onto pan. Knead out to the edges with fingers. (Add extra tapioca if needed to prevent stickiness.)

Spoon pizza sauce onto crust followed by toppings. (See recipe notes for tip).

Bake 25 to 30 minutes. Enjoy!

Notes

I formulated this recipe to perfectly fit a 14” Lodge Cast Iron Pizza Pan.  Don’t forget to use tapioca flour while spreading out the dough to prevent stickiness.  Add one tablespoon at a time until stickiness disappears.  For best flavor, add 3 cloves minced garlic spread evenly over pizza sauce before adding toppings.  For a wood-fired taste, (after baking pizza), lay cast iron pizza pan on top of a real wood fire for 3-5 minutes.  If you have access to a real fire, you gotta try this…soooo AMAZING!
