This Paleo Crust for Pizza Lovers proves that while finding a grain, gluten and dairy free pizza crust can be a challenge, it is possible. This has been my go-to pizza crust recipe for a while and I get requests to make this often. I combine it with my homemade pizza sauce (Zesty Multi-Purpose Pizza Sauce) and it is so delicious!
Never could I have imagined that there would be a tasty pizza recipe in my future. A gluten free diet has a way of dashing those dreams. Pizza was a favorite food for as long as I can remember. What a treat it was, as a child, to pick up a pizza at Sophies Restaurant. Sophie’s was located in a house, not in the main village, but in a neighborhood, in the small town I grew up in. It is a very cool and fun memory.
Going gluten free has taught me that there are good substitutes, you just have to find them and incorporate them into your diet and lifestyle. While this pizza may not be exactly like Sophie’s, both have crispy crusts and are delicious!

Hope You Enjoy! 🙂
- 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
- 1/2 cup tapioca flour/starch
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil melted
- 1 flax egg
- 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
- pinch fine sea salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium sized mixing bowl, add the almond flour, tapioca flour/starch and coconut flour. Whisk to combine and remove all lumps.
Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well to combine. Dough will be easy to handle and not sticky.
Roll dough between two pieces of parchment paper, into your desired shape. I usually make a 9 inch round, but there are many options.
Bake the dough for about 10 minutes until it starts to harden and slightly brown. Take out of the oven and spread sauce and toppings and bake for another 10 minutes. Remove from oven, slice and enjoy!
Notes: Baking times will vary depending on the size of your pizza crust and the toppings you use.
