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.
