So it was Friday night and I wanted pizza… So I get out all my flours and such and start creating a wonderful pizza crust. Well, not really. The first paleo pizza crust I made was hard and far too chewy… After some okay pizzas, I can now have a great paleo pizza!!

I still make my hubby his traditional wheat, yeast, and dairy filled pizza… My days for that pizza have been far over for quite a while. I am very happy to say that I get to enjoy my pizza just as much as he enjoys his!

You can use whatever topping that you prefer, as well as a traditional tomato based sauce or a pesto base. Both are absolutely fabulous!


Paleo Pizza Crust (Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/ Vegan/ Nut Free)


2/3 c. tapioca or arrowroot starch

1/3 c. coconut flour

1/3 c. ground flax

1 tsp. ground basil (or Italian seasoning)

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. sea salt

1 c. water

2 Tbsp. olive oil (or desired oil)

1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a medium size bowl, whisk together tapioca, coconut flour, flax, basil, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Then add in water, oil and vinegar. Stir thoroughly. Spread batter out onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes.

Then remove from oven and top with tomato sauce or Pesto (not if nut free) and add your favorite pizza toppings

I also make a batch of Cashew Cream ( not if nut free) to top off my pizza.

After adding your toppings, bake for an additional 15 minutes.

  1. Omg this pizza looks amazing! I am definitely going to give this a go. I love pizza (vegan pizza) but usually make it with a wheat flour dough. This crust is so much healthier, and will take me the same time to prepare it!

  2. Oh my goodness! This sounds scrumptious, Sandi! I have made several attempts to make pizza crust and fail each time, but will definitely give this one a try. I’m curious to try the coconut flour as I haven’t really used it yet.
    Thank you so much for sharing this at Healthy Vegan Fridays – this recipe is being featured this week as a fav (no surprise here!). I have also pinned this to the Pinterest Board.
    Thanks so much for your continued contributions =)
