Paleo Pizza Crust, Second Time is Gold

Long time, no blog. I was camping in California for Wasteland Weekend.

Before we left for Wasteland, I made paleo pizza, and this time, I made the best crust yet. It was soft and foldable, like pita, and tasted deliciously nutty from the almond meal.

I let it rise for longer than necessary since I was busy and the extended rising time helped.

Paleo Pizza Crust
Write a review
  1. 2½ teaspoons active dry yeast
  2. ¼ cup warm water
  3. 1/2 tablespoon coconut sugar
  4. 2½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  5. 1/4 cup warm water
  6. 1 tablespoon psyllium husk
  7. 1 cup almond meal
  8. 1/2 cup tapioca starch
  9. 1/2 cup coconut flour
  10. 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  11. 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  12. Toppings of your choice (I used cilantro pesto, sauteed mushrooms, and Daiya mozzarella here)
  1. In a small measuring cup, proof the yeast by mixing the yeast in the warm water with the sugar. Set aside.
  2. In another small measuring cup, combine the other measure of hot water, psyllium husk, and the oil and mix well with a fork or whisk.
  3. In a large bowl, sift then whisk together the dry ingredients.
  4. Add the proofed yeast mixture to the psyllium husk mixture, then add wet to dry and mix well until the dough coheres and forms a single mass.
  5. Transfer the dough to in oiled bowl, flip once to coat in oil, and cover with a damp towel.
  6. Let rise 100-120 minutes or until doubled in size.
  7. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  8. Roll out dough (with additional tapioca starch to facilitate rolling) on top of Silpat or parchment the size of your cookie sheet (I baked mine on a cookie sheet = Sicilian style pizza because I’m part Sicilian).
  9. Top the rolled crust with the toppings of your choice (cilantro pesto, water-sauteed mushrooms, Daiya mozzarella for me).
  10. Bake 20-30 minutes until desired crispness and topping doneness is reached.
  11. Cool for ten minutes before digging in!
  1. Daiya is not paleo because it has pea protein. I said the crust, not the entire pizza, was paleo!

  1. Have you ever tried cauliflower pizza crust? It’s seriously amazing and tastes better than any pizza crust I’ve ever made!

    • No, I haven’t yet, but it’s on my list! I made cauliflower rice recently and was surprised at its deliciousness 😛
