Thin-Crust Pizza Base

Grain Free Pizza Crust

As someone who lived for a couple of years in beautiful Napoli, Italy I fell in love with their people and their pizza culture! It has been a long time in the making of trials and errors (to say the least) to be able to come up with a delicious crispy nutrient dense pizza crust that contains whole food fat, fiber, and protein that is grain/ gluten free – until now. I am so happy to say that this pizza crust has been a family favorite. I also have another pizza crust recipe, my Caulicrust Pizza Base which we also love, but the kids prefer this one as it’s just like a regular thin-crust pizza base! Whilst this crust calls for blanched almond flour (not almond meal), I have a nut-free option below using sunflower seed flower. This lends a little more of an earthy flavour than almond flour, however it’s still delicious!

My kids love pizza marinara (who doesn’t?) with my homemade pizza sauce and grass-fed cheese (if you can tolerate some dairy, hey just do you). I personally prefer to use any one of my fresh fermented almond or macadamia ricotta nut cheeses. The huz and I really enjoy my  Chili Garlic Prawn Pizza, which is a real crowd pleaser, especially with this thin crispy crust.

This pizza crust freezes perfectly and is just the best for those nights you don’t want to cook and need something quick and easy. My no-cook marinara sauce is super quick too – I love simplicity! Choose from anyone of my tried and tested pizza recipes: Artichoke Cherry Tomato Ricotta Nut Cheese and Rocket Pizza, or my Pesto Ricotta Nut Cheese Pizza, or my Chili Garlic Prawn Pizza, or feel free to bring out the Chef in you and create your own!

Ingredients

  • 120g ½ Cup Canned Full-Fat Coconut Milk

  • 2 Large Eggs, room temperature

  • 75g ⅓ Cup Coconut Oil, melted

  • 110g 1 Cup Blanched Almond Flour (or for a nut-free version sub for 1 Cup Sunflower seed Flour – See notes below)

  • 40g ⅓ Cup Arrowroot Flour

  • 30g ¼ Cup Coconut Flour

  • 14g 2 Tbsps Ground Flax

  • 3g ½ tsp Unrefined Salt

  • 60g ¼ Cup Filtered Water

  • Notes

Directions

  • If you prefer to bake your crust now you will need to preheat your oven at 245C/ 473F. (See direction #7 for baking or freezing options.)

    In a standing mixer bowl with a fitted paddle attachment, add in the flours and salt. Mix the flours until well combined.
  • While the mixer is on low speed, add in the coconut milk, coconut oil, and water. Mix on low speed until a soft dough is formed (it will be runnier than traditional pizza dough.)
  • Increase mixer speed to medium and add in one egg at a time until fully incorporated and dough batter is creamy smooth.
  • On an oven tray lined with baking paper (that will fit into your freezer), pour out ⅓ of the pizza batter. Using a nonstick spatula or offset spatula, spread out batter into an 8 inch round. This recipe will make approx. 2 – 3 pizza crusts depending on your desired size.
  • To bake: Preheat oven at 245C/ 473F. On a baking sheet lined oven tray, bake crusts for 6 minutes. Rotate the tray halfway through to prevent over browning on one side then bake for another 6 minutes (total bake time is 12 minutes – ovens may vary.)

    To freeze: Carefully move the uncooked pizza crusts into the freezer. Be sure nothing is on top of them. It will take approx. 3 hours to freeze, or freeze overnight. Once frozen, we stack them on top of each other with baking paper in between so that they don’t stick. We cover in plastic wrap and pop into the freezer.

Notes

  • To make sunflower seed flour: Blend whole raw sunflower seeds in a dry high speed blender into a powder. Do not over blend, or you will have sunflower seed butter!
  • Storage: Pizza crust stores in the freezer for up to 2 months. To serve simply pop a crust in to the oven frozen and follow the directions above. Cooking time may vary slightly depending on if your crust is frozen, or not.
