Paleo Almond Flour Pizza Crust
Well HELLO there friends! It’s been a whiiiile! I have no excuse except that I’ve had many things on my plate as of late and am just trying to keep up with it all 🙂 I LOVE doing this blog so I want to be better at prioritizing it, because it is the best thing ever when I see you guys loving on my recipes!!! Melts my heart every time. <3
I am reallllly excited about this recipe. I’ve been thinking about an almond flour pizza crust for a LONG time, specifically because I really enjoy the taste/texture of almond flour and I knew it would make a much sturdier gluten free/paleo pizza crust than cauliflower (although don’t get me wrong, I love me a good cauli pizza crust). Also, I live in this little ol’ country called Canada where we don’t have that Simple Mills brand pizza crust that everyone and their mother is talking about on Instagram, so naturally, I knew I had to create one of my own 😉
After lots and lots of research, I developed this recipe and was SO thrilled when it actually came out PERFECT on the first try!!! I meeeean…that hardly ever happens. So I was pretty pumped.
I brought this to a work dinner and it was a huge hit, so I think I found a winner. It’s super easy to make and although it includes some pretty specific ingredients, everything should be pretty easy to find at your local bulk, health food or grocery store (tip: I always buy almond flour in bulk – it’s waaay cheaper this way). I wouldn’t recommend making any substitutions, as gluten-free flours can be very tricky to work with and sub!
If you’re looking for a delicious gluten and grain free pizza crust, I hope you give this baby a try!
- ½ c. almond flour
- ½ c. tapioca flour
- 2 tbsp. coconut flour
- 2 tbsp. ground flaxseed
- ½ tsp. baking soda
- ½ tsp. Italian spice
- ¼ tsp. garlic powder
- ¼ tsp. salt
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- ¼ c. water
- Toppings of choice - I love tomato sauce, pesto, sauteed zucchini + mushrooms and vegan cheese!
- In a large bowl, combine all of your dry ingredients (almond flour through salt) and stir to thoroughly combine.
- Add your olive oil, ACV and water and slowly stir until a dough comes together. It will be fairly sticky but leaving it to rest in the fridge for 10 mins or so while the oven preheats will help this.
- Preheat your oven to 425 and line a baking tray or pizza stone with parchment. Drizzle with olive oil and place your dough on it, patting it into a thin circle (about 1/2 inch thick).
- Once you have your desired shape, bake the pizza for 15 mins or until the crust is just starting to brown. Add your desired toppings and place in the oven for an additional 5-10 mins or until crust looks crispy.
- Serve immediately and enjoy!
