  3. Create a golf size ball and roll out into crust (use the remaining in other recipes) using coconut flour to keep it from sticking.

Just like White ‘flour’ Dough (but not)

I’ve tried my fair share of grain free pizza doughs. While they all taste good, they often fall apart and rarely look like the real thing.

This recipe has been rocking our kitchen for a few months now and it is sooo versatile. We use it for both pizza and quiche (planning to try it for pie too!)

By the way, almond flour is way more nutritious than whole wheat flour (and of course gluten and grain free). In our house, pizza is a health food!

NOTE: Some almond flours have different behaviors so use more or less depending on the one you have in your kitchen (this recipe uses Bob’s Red Mill brand).

Just like White ‘flour’ Dough

What you will need:
2 1/2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (or nutritional yeast)
1/4 tsp unrefined salt
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 eggs

How to do it:

Step 1: Gently melt coconut oil on the stovetop.
Step 2: Whisk eggs in a small bowl.
Step 3: Put remaining ingredients in a medium size bowl and mix with a fork.
Step 4: Stir whisked eggs into the batter and then stir in the coconut oil in after (otherwise if you stir them both in at the same time, you risk cooking the eggs from the heat of the coconut oil).
Step 5: Form into pizza crust or quiche shell.
Step 6: Bake crust @ 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.
Step 7: Fill or top and then bake until cheese melts for pizza or until eggs set for quiche (this all depending on the recipe you are using for quiche- you might be able to get away without precooking the shell)
