Paleo Pizza Crust

This Paleo Pizza Crust is unlike others you’ve probably tried before – because the pizza is IN the crust. What I mean by that is the crust itself is flavorful, so it can stand alone if needed. It’s made with spices like oregano, red pepper flakes and paprika AND it actually tastes like cheese thanks to the nutritional yeast.

If you haven’t heard of nutritional yeast – it’s a cheese substitute (something that vegans have been using for years). It’s really good. I only recently found out about the stuff – after my friend Hayley had me try her nacho kale chips. When she said they were dairy-free, I told her she had to be lying. I have no idea why, but this stuff seriously tastes like cheese. You can find it in most grocery stores, or you can order it on amazon.

Making this pie is as easy as making my 3-ingredient Flatbread. The only difference is, instead of waiting for the bread to finish cooking on the stove top, you just pop it in the oven. When it comes out, it’ll be perfectly golden brown and ready for eating.

I topped this pie with some organic pizza sauce and ate it just like that. You can eat this without using any toppings too – it’s like a pizza flavored bread. If you can handle dairy – sprinkle some cheese on top – you’ll love it. This baked crust has crispy edges with a softer middle, but you can make this pizza as crispy as you’d like.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a bowl combine all of the ingredients to form a batter.
  • Ladle ½ cup of the batter onto an Eco-friendly Nonstick Fry Pan on medium heat.*
  • Allow the flat bread to cook until the bottom firms slightly. Flip the flatbread over and cook the other side for a minute, then place it on a baking sheet.
  • Bake in oven at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until the crust reaches your desired level of crispiness.
  • If using toppings, add them to the pizza and put the pie back in the oven for a few minutes.


I used a Scraper Spatula to help me get the bread into a neat round shape. Even if yours turns out to be in a funny shape, it'll still taste the same.

    EZ to follow and EZ to eat. Topped it with Paleo version of crême fraiche & some young Japanese knotweed…very tasty.

    Thank you,Ashley! This was simply amazing. I have tried your naan recipe too that calls for the same ingredients and it has turned out awesome. I stock my pantry with coconut milk!

    Sorry.I really wanted to like it. I had pep, garlic , 3 cheese and arugula and all I could taste was coconut! It got crispy, but the coconut was overpowering!

    Please help. I’m doing something wrong. I made this last night and it was delicious but I couldn’t get it to become crispy. The texture I ended up with was much more like a pancake (sort of a spongy pancake). Did I not cook it long enough? Did I fry it at too hot a temperature and too quickly? The edges were the only part that were at all crispy but the flavor was oh, so good.

    I LOVE this recipe—As crispy as I want it to be (I like it like a cracker) but it still says a little chewy inside. The kids no longer want regular pizza—they want this one. I spend Saturday cooking several weeks’ worth on the stove, then thaw it by putting it into the oven to get it as crispy as I like it. The spices in it are awesome and make it well worth the time!!!

      Courtney, Wow, that is the best compliment! It makes me so happy to hear that your kids prefer this to regular pizza! Thanks for letting me know how much you all like it 🙂

    First time I tried nutritional yeast and this type of recipe… Experimenting with paleo recipes. Really good, it was kind of sticky/gelatinous and tricky to get it out of the pan to lie it down, but can still be reshaped afterwards. Really Good, had to bake them over 20 minutes though to get some roasted crust, and it was still soft in the middle. Will be making it again!
