Gluten-Free Pizza Crust Recipe

Most of us think of pizza crust in categories such as doughy, crispy, thick crust, thin crust, New York style, Chicago style, etc. You know, those pizza crust choices that are on the menu at most Italian restaurants or the local fast-food pizza joint. This particular gluten-free pizza crust recipe forgoes all those heavily processed carbohydrates and chemical additives that can leave you feeling overly full, weighted down, and even lethargic. Food (your body’s fuel) should always make you feel good because of the healthy nutrition it provides. If you’re eating foods that make you feel heavy, gaseous or sleepy, it’s time to take inventory of what you are putting into your body. There are always more healthy versions of that favorite food of yours. For now, let’s begin with a delicious and very easy gluten-free pizza crust recipe!

Himalayan Fine Crystal Salt

Gluten-Free Pizza Crust Recipe

Ingredient List

  • florets from 1 cauliflower
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • Himalayan sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons of nutritional yeast (Used for taste only. Great for non-dairy lovers as it has a cheesy flavor and is loaded with B vitamins and protein.)
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 3 organic eggs, beaten (or use chia eggs)

Optional: 1 tablespoon ground chia seed. This helps to create more of a doughy texture and moistens the overall crust. However, if you don’t have chia seeds, this recipe still works.


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Coarsely chop the cauliflower, place in food processor and blend until it is a fine rice-like texture. Place in a mixing bowl. Add the almond flour, oregano, nutritional yeast, Himalayan salt and black pepper and ground chia seed (if using) and mix with your hands. Make a well in the center and add the organic eggs and minced garlic clove. Use your hands to pull the dry ingredients towards the middle until everything is combined and you can shape it into a ball.
  3. Transfer to the baking paper and form into a pizza base by flattening the dough with your hands. Depending on individual preference, this recipe makes either 2 small pizza bases or one large pizza base. Small bases tend to work better and cook more evenly.
  4. Pre-bake for 25 minutes or until golden. Meanwhile, prepare your toppings. Remove the crust from the oven. Cover it with organic marinara or pizza sauce, organic veggies (except for avocado slices). Put it back in the oven for 5-10 more minutes. Remove from the oven and top with fresh basil, arugula, a squeeze of lemon juice, etc.
