Real Food Recipe: Gluten Free Paleo Pizza Crust

gluten free paleo pizza crust recipe

This paleo pizza crust recipe is so delicious, I literally think about it randomly sometimes and start craving it and have to make it that night. It reminds me of delicious corn bread.

You can add whatever toppings you want, but I went for fresh homemade pesto, arugula, prosciutto, heirloom baby tomatoes, bocconcini, parmesan and olive oil.

Real Food Recipe: Gluten Free Paleo Pizza Crust

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 4 big slices

A delicious paleo gluten free pizza crust recipe that you can layer with your chosen ingredients. We find it quite filling so the pizza is enough to feed 4 people (or have for dinner and pack along leftovers for breakfast or lunch).


    For the crust:
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 4 free range eggs
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • For the pesto:
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 4 tbsp parmesan
  • 2 big handfuls basil leaves
  • 1 tsp pink salt
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • juice 1/2 lemon
  • 4 cloves garlic (peeled)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  2. Mix all crust ingredients in a large bowl and whisk until smooth, it may become thick enough that you can knead it with your hands.
  3. Spread the batter into a rimmed pizza pan or cast iron pan. You want it to be no more than about 1 cm / half inch thick. Spread it evenly with a spatula or your fingers.
  4. Bake the crust by itself for 15-20 minutes.
  5. During this time make the pesto by putting all the ingredients in a food processor and whizzing until smooth.
  6. Take out the crust, pile on your pizza ingredients and bake for another 10 minutes or so to warm everything up. Personally I spread the pesto on as a sauce, then added arugula, prosciutto, heirloom baby tomatoes, and bocconcini balls (fresh mozzarella).
  7. Sprinkle with parmesan and drizzle with more pesto & olive oil before serving.
