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.
- ½ cup Almond Flour
- ½ cup Tapioca Flour
- 1 cup Coconut Milk
- 1 tbs Nutritional Yeast
- 1 tsp Oregano
- 1 tsp Fine Sea Salt
- ¼ tsp Fennel Powder
- ¼ tsp Paprika
- ¼ tsp freshly ground Black Peppercorns
- pinch of Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
- 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.
