Those of you who love to bake with almond flour as much as I do will want to try this low carb pizza crust recipe. I really hope you enjoy it as much as our family!

The first time I made it, I noticed that no one seemed to miss wheat-based pizza crust in the slightest. This coming from an entire family of huge pizza lovers.

Almond Flour Pizza Crust Recipe (Grain Free)

You may be surprised to experience that this almond flour pizza is so very filling .. I can only eat 1/4 of it at one meal. It’s hard to believe, but this recipe is 4 adult servings! If I made this same recipe using wheat flour, I assure you I could eat the entire pizza myself in one sitting.

If you make the crust with freshly ground flour (learn how to make almond flour at the link), it is even more filling than when you make it with store-bought blanched or natural versions. The reason is that homemade is more nutritious, which signals the brain that you are full faster.

The biggest bonus is that it tastes positively gourmet!

Other Pizza Crust Recipes to Try

If you are avoiding wheat, try this homemade gluten-free pizza crust instead. This recipe for breakfast pizza is fun to try too on the mornings when eggs and bacon seem run of the mill.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Beat eggs slightly with Parmesan cheese and coconut oil. Add herbs and flour and mix until well blended dough.

  2. Form 2 small pizzas on a large pizza pan covered in unbleached parchment paper. Place another piece of parchment paper on top so that the dough doesn't stick to your hands and press out dough until you have 2 thin pizza crusts about 8" across.

  3. Bake at 425 F/218 C for 10 minutes or until crusts are slightly browned on the edges. Note: this grain free, almond flour pizza crust does not expand while baking.

  4. Remove from oven. Cool slightly. Add homemade pizza sauce, toppings, and cheese and bake for another 10 minutes or until cheese well melted.

Recipe Notes

Feel free to substitute fresh basil and oregano for the dried. If using fresh herbs, use 1.5 teaspoons each.
