gluten-Free pizza crust

I was really missing pizza but the grains and gluten in the crust are not on my 28 Day Grain-Free Challenge and I’m also dairy-free at the moment. Years ago, when I still ate conventional pizza, the combination of grains and cheese would be ghastly for me. So I came up with a suitable crust and topping for a quick and fun meal.  The crust is just the right texture and consistency to emulate a crispy thin crusted pizza loaded with your favorite topping!

This is definitely kid friendly. Kids love to make their own crusts and there are a multitude of choices for toppings. Anything from shredded meats and chicken to roasted or sauteed vegetables. This recipe is appropriate for SCD/GAPS and certainly if you are eating cheese that would make a great topping!


Grain-Free Pizza Crust


Options: add other spices such as onion powder, oregano, etc



  1. In a food processor process the 3 eggs
  2. Add the applesauce and mix
  3. Add the salt and other spices and mix
  4. Add the coconut flour, mix and then add the almond flour
  5. The batter will be somewhat sticky but should be soft and just starting to form a ball in the processor
  6. Use two flat cookie sheets lined with parchment pape ror a pizza stone
  7. Using olive oil grease the parchment paper
  8. Using a spatula, scrap the dough together into a large ball
  9. Put the dough onto the parchment paper and divide in two
  10. Place each piece of dough on a separate cookie sheet
  11. Press the dough into an oval shape
  12. Cover the dough with clear wrap and with a rolling pin roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness
  13. Pull off the clear wrap and you have a thin, even crust
  14. With your fingers, go around the perimeter of the crust pushing inwards, to even out the edges
  15. Bake at 375 degrees F for 12 minutes or until slightly browned
  16. Remove from oven and flip over using a large spatula
  17. Bake for another 2 – 4 minutes or until slightly browned (you may omit this step if you like)
  18. This makes 2 pizza crusts about 10″ x 7″


  • Homemade tomato sauce and raw grassfed cheese would be lovely
  • Add those two on top of the crust and put under the broiler for a minute or two to melt the cheese
  • I precooked grassfed chopped beef which I sauteed with my No Tomato Sauce and simply added that on top
