Paleo Almond Flour Pizza

Pizza is a staple in my life.  When I posted about Paleo pizza I mentioned I liked two pizza videos.  Here is the second video.  This pizza recipe uses almond flour.  It is derived from a recipe by Mark’s Daily Apple.  The author of the video, Darren McDuffie, shows you step by step how to make the pizza.  He did change the quantity of olive oil used from the original recipe.

I went on an adventure just to make this pizza.  I was all out of almond flour.  I was out of it for two weeks (shame on me!).  I needed my pizza fix so I braved the stormy weather and walked to the nearby grocery store.  They usually have a bag of almond flour in the health food section.  Of all days they were OUT!  By this time I had already filled my grocery cart with other items.  I only went to the grocery store to pick up almond four and coconut milk but anything shiny and exciting caught my eye and I put it in my cart.  I bought my items and decided I would walk ten more minutes to the next grocery store.  Keep in mind I had to carry all my groceries and walk in a storm!  I got to the street and I walked up and down trying to find the store.  I walked up and down at least 5 times.  It was very frustrating.  I lack an internal sense of direction.  Then I realized I couldn’t find the store because it was further down the street, about 10 minutes further.
I made it to the store, found my almond flour, and stood in a mile long lineup for the cash register.  After all this I walked home and made PIZZA!
The result:


Thin crust that holds all these toppings!  Doesn’t even crack under the pressure!


You get a very crispy crust!!!!!  Even the middle pieces stayed crispy.  I did taste a slight eggy taste.  I loved how fast this pizza crust can be made.  It can be assembled within minutes.  I made the dough earlier in the day and put saran wrap over it and stored it in the fridge until supper time.  McDuffie used his hands to flatten the dough.  I found this too difficult to do.  The dough stuck to my fingers and it was too uneven.  I had put the dough between two pieces of parchment paper and use a rolling pin to flatten the dough. 
I even shared my pizza with a non-low carber and he loved it!!!  He really loved it.
Paleo Almond Flour Pizza Recipe:
·         2 Cups Almond Meal/Flour (like this brand)
·         2 Eggs
·         2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
·         1 Tsp salt
1.    Mix all the ingredients together to form a dough.
2.    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
3.    Lightly oil two pieces of parchment paper.

5.    Moved the pizza and bottom piece of parchment paper to a pizza tray.
6.    Bake for 10-15 minutes – until middle is cooked.
7.    Take out of the oven.  Put all of your desired pizza topping on it.  *Yum, pizza!!!
8.    Put the pizza back in the oven for about 15 minutes – until the veggies are cooked and the cheese is bubbling.
9.    Eat your crispy pizza!

    Yum, yum. This looks awesome! I’ve been making socca (chickpea flour) crusted pizzas lately, which I’ve been loving. I guess that doesn’t fit as well with paleo/low-carb but it’s certainly delicious. :) I have a fresh bag of almond flour so maybe I’ll be making your version soon.

    I was so excited to try this recipe that I mistook the Tsp for tablespoon since that is what usually has a capital “T”. So, please note that it is teaspoon, not tablespoon :) (I am still excited about having pizza again!!!!)

    This looks AMAZING, but how is this Paleo Pizza with all that cheese on it? Is there some Paleo cheese out there (please say yes please say yes please say yes)?

    • CAROLditchthewheat says

      Some people eat cheese and some people don’t. You can use raw dairy cheese or get grass fed cheese.

    My wife and I just made this, blog post to come about it. Thank you for the recipe. I think we rolled the dough slightly too thick, while it was cooked it was kind of grainy when we ate it. In the dough we added rosemary and basil from our backyard. We added eggplant, cherry tomatoes, three types of cheese, and chorizo. It was delicious.

    Yikes, this recipe is nasty. It sounded and looked good but the taste was horrid. If you are dying for pizza you might want to look elsewhere.
