Grain Free Pizza Crust

Are you gluten and grain free and yearning for pizza?  Here is a simple recipe for a healthy pizza crust that is a crowd pleaser!

The D-Man loves Pizza, then again, most people do.   In the past I made gluten free pizza crust from a rice flour blend, but a year ago we eliminated all grains from our diet.  Since then pizza nights have been a lackluster event.  I tried dough made from coconut flour, dough made from bean flours (not easy for the D-Man to digest), none of these really worked well, or they were labor intensive.  I finally hit pay dirt with this healthy, quick and easy recipe.  This dough takes less than 10 minutes to prepare, and no special tools are needed….I whip this up with a fork!  This recipe produces a thin and crispy pizza crust which holds up to tons of toppings!  So, for those who are grain free, or striving to eliminate grains from your diet, this recipe is for you.

Ingredients:
2 Large Pastured Eggs (room temperature)
1 ½ Cups Almond Flour (packed)
¼ Cup Tapioca Starch
4 Tablespoons Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (melted)
1/3 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese (packed)
¼ teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt
3 teaspoons Organic dried Italian Seasonings
1 teaspoon Organic dried Basil
1 teaspoon Organic dried Oregano
1 teaspoon Organic dried Onion Powder
2 small cloves of fresh Organic Garlic (minced)

* Note:  I add more seasonings for my family *

Directions:
In a medium sized bowl beat eggs slightly with a fork.
To the eggs add:  Parmesan Cheese and Spices;  mix to combine.
Add Almond Flour, Tapioca Starch and Coconut Oil, mixing until a dough is formed.
Press dough onto a 12 inch Pizza Pan, using a sheet of parchment paper to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands.

    THIS RECIPE IS FAB-O-LUS!!! Thank you, Laura.

    FYI… you can exchange the coconut oil for olive oil and it ramps up the flavor. I know, I know… olive oil, high temps, etc!! Sometimes, you just gotta say "what the heck"! :-)

    This dough freezes well. We make 4-5 oz balls of dough and freeze them. Put a bunch in a bag in the freezer. They thaw easily. You can have quick pizza anytime! YAY LAURA!!!

    What did you use for your toppings? looks like kale or spinach? What else?

  5. Laura

    Twila, It was actually baby organic spinach. Other toppings included raw goats milk feta, pastured lamb sausage, chopped kalmata olives, organic sliced tomatoes, and sweet onions. The crust really holds up to lots of toppings. Hope you enjoy.

    Wondering if you have a suggested substitute for parmesan… can't do cow dairy. Interesting recipe! You're very creative.

    Jody, There is a product called "Parma" produced by a company called "Eat In The Raw". I have not used it but have heard it is good. It is Casein Free, Soy Free, Gluten Free and Non-GMO.

    Another option would be grinding a bit of sesame seed and chia seed and tossing it together with some finely chopped parsley with a bit of organic onion powder, sea salt and black pepper. 2 Tablespoons of Sesame and 1 Tablespoon of Chia Seed should do the trick. If you don't have chia seed just add a little extra sesame seed (3 TBS.).

    Hope one of these options will work for you.

    Tapioca Starch is not allowed on GAPS. Anyone know whether it can be left out or another ingredient can be used?
