Almond Flour Pizza Crust

Almond Flour Pizza Crust

Almond flour pizza crust is delicious. It’s nothing like regular crust, of course, but the almond flour, egg and seasonings bake into a crisp, flavorful crust that’s very good on its own, even without any toppings. I add the yeast for flavor only – it won’t make the gluten-free dough rise, but it adds a hint of a yeasty flavor which is very nice.

Ingredients
Almond pizza crust:
Topping:
  • ½ cup no-sugar-added marinara sauce (Rao's has a clean ingredients list; their spicy tomato sauce is amazing)
  • 1 ½ cups (6 oz) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, salt, baking soda, garlic powder and yeast.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and honey.
  4. With a rubber spatula, mix the egg mixture into the flour mixture, then knead the crumbly mixture into uniform, smooth dough.
  5. Transfer the dough to the prepared cookie sheet. Cover with another sheet of parchment paper and use a rolling pin to roll into a large, 10-inch diameter, ¼-inch-thick circle.
  6. Bake for 7-8 minutes, until golden and edges are just beginning to brown.
  7. Remove the pizza crust from the oven. Switch oven to broil and set a rack 6 inches below flame (not directly below flame).
  8. Top the crust with the pizza sauce, sprinkle with mozzarella and add your toppings. Cover the edges of the crust with strips of foil to prevent them from burning.
  9. Return the pizza to the oven and broil for 2-3 minutes, until cheese is golden and bubbly. Remove from oven and allow to cool and set for 5 minutes, then use a pizza cutter to cut into 8 triangles. Serve immediately.
