Paleo/Whole Food Pizza Crust

I love making pizza every Friday night with my husband. We enjoy our homemade pizza with a nice salad and glass of wine! It’s the perfect way to unwind from the week. This is a great opportunity to catch up about details from the week and spend quality time together. Plus, it’s cheaper than ordering out!

Prep time: 10 min

Cook time: 40 min

Total time: 50 min

Servings: 8 large slices

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 2 T psyllium husk powder (ground, not whole husks)
  • 1 T dried Italian spices
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 T apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 large eggs

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the pizza pan by placing a sheet of parchment paper over the top and drizzling it with olive oil.

  2. In a large bowl, add coconut flour, (*ground) psyllium husk powder, spices, baking powder, apple cider vinegar, olive oil and hot water.
  3. Mix until well combined.
  4. Add in the almond flour and eggs until the dough is sticky.IMG_0135
  5. Place the dough on top of the prepared parchment paper. Cover it with a second piece of parchment paper or wax paper.
  6. Push the crust using the paper until a circle is formed. Remove the parchment paper.
  7. Place the pizza in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes. If you want the crust on the crispier side, turn your oven to broil after baking for 30 minutes and let it broil for up to 5 minutes. You can also flip it over on the other side to broil on both sides. Careful not to burn it!IMG_0140
  8. Remove from the oven and top with sauce, cheese, a protein source and nummy veggies (I like to cook mine with the protein source plus a little extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper!)IMG_0143
  9. Increase the oven heat to 400 degrees or set to broil.
  10. Place in the oven and bake until cheese is melted.
  11. Remove, slice and enjoy! (with a great side salad)IMG_0145
