The Best Grain-Free Homemade Pizza

The Best Grain-Free Homemade Pizza

 

I’m not sure if you have seen Food Babe’s latest post about what’s in the pizza at big chain pizza restaurants. It’s quite scary and it leaves me wondering how the FDA can get away with poisoning us.

It’s time to ditch the pizza restaurants and instead make pizza at home. After trying several different paleo pizza crusts, I finally found one that works, tastes great, and has the same texture as a “regular” gluten pie crust. I originally posted it on my blog but because it has worked so beautifully, I decided to post it here as well.

We love it because it’s:

  • grain-free & gluten-free
  • dairy-free
  • nut-free
  • soy-free
  • yeast-free
  • sugar-free
  • msg-free

So what the heck is it made with?  It’s simple actually – with only 6 ingredients. It takes me 5 minutes to make the dough then another 5 minutes to press it out. 15 minutes to bake and voila a pizza crust that won’t slowly kill you.

Note:  Our little one has an egg allergy so I substitute butter for the egg and bake it for 10 minutes. It turns out really crispy but still good.

And now for the recipe…

Prep time: 10 minutes

Bake time: 15 minutes

Yield: 4 mini pizza crusts (4-5 inch diameter)

Ingredients:

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a food processor add the flour, cheese, sea salt, and baking powder. Pulse until well combined.
  3. Then add the egg and milk. Pulse until dough forms. This will take a few seconds.
  4. Remove dough from food processor and split into 4 equal parts then let stand for 10 minutes. This will make it less sticky.
  5. Roll the dough into a ball with your hands and then place on a baking sheet. If you don’t have a baking sheet you can do this on the pizza stone, just make sure to grease it. I found the crust stuck to the pizza stone so I use a baking sheet first.
  6. With your hands and fingers flatten out each ball into a 1/4 inch circle. You may need some oil on your hands. (I make mini crusts so they hold together when eating. When I tried a big crust the sauce made the center gooey.)
  7. Bake for 15 minutes.
