Best Grain-Free Pizza Crust

I have been playing around with pizza crust recipes looking for the prefect crispness and flavor since eliminating gluten from my diet several years ago. After this weekend I have stopped trying to create my own because I found this recipe from Primally Inspired. It is nut-free and the perfect texture to pick up and enjoy.

See Kelly’s pictures and notes here:

Grain Free Pizza Crust (Paleo)
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, add in your tapioca flour and sea salt (and cheese, if using). Set aside.
  3. In a small pot over medium heat, add your oil, water, apple cider vinegar and minced garlic clove.
  4. As it heats up and comes to a boil, remove it from the heat and add it to your tapioca flour bowl. Stir until combined. Set aside for about 2 minutes to cool.
  5. Once it’s not hot to the touch, add in your egg. Stir until combined.
  6. Add in your coconut flour (and Italian seasoning, if using) and stir until the coconut flour is absorbed and it becomes dough.
  7. Form the dough into a ball and press or roll out on a parchment lined or lightly greased pizza stone or baking pan. You will have enough dough to do a 12 to 14 inch circle.
  8. Bake 14-15 minutes or just until the crust starts to become a very light golden brown.
  9. Remove from oven, add your toppings and bake for 3-5 more minutes. Enjoy!

This is what my pizza looked like. It was topped with pesto, prosciutto, feta, greens and mushrooms by my favorite 5 year-old helper.
