Crispy Gluten Free Pizza Crust

Pizza is usually something most families pick up at their local pizza chain or have delivered to their home but after trying this recipe you may think twice about ordering out.

Not only is this recipe made from all natural ingredients with no additives but this Crispy Gluten Free Pizza Crust is made without yeast, sugar, or grains of any kind.

Crispy Gluten Free Pizza Crust


Friday night is usually pizza night at my house and this past Friday, I decided to try something a little different with my pizza crust.

I love a good Deep Dish Pizza but sometimes I crave a crispy thin crust like the kind I grew up eating in New Jersey.

Now, unlike most pizza places I have visited in the Mid West, I am not going to claim that this pizza is authentic N.Y. Style. I will however let you know that this is the crispiest pizza crust I have tried since starting the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.

To make this Crispy Gluten Free Pizza Crust you will need:

2 Cups of Almond Flour

2 Egg Whites

1 Zucchini

1/8 cup of Olive Oil

1/2 Cup of Parmesan Cheese

Preheat Oven to 400 degrees

Boil Zucchini for about 7-10 minutes or until softened. Add to mixing bowl and mix until it becomes a paste like consistency and no longer looks like zucchini.

Add the other ingredients and mix everything together until well combined. A dough should have formed.

Add a piece of parchment paper to a baking sheet and sprinkle olive oil on top. This prevents the crust from sticking to the pan when it’s finished baking. If you do not have parchment paper, be sure to use a non stick pan for this pizza crust.

Press dough onto baking sheet and form into the shape of a circle. Don’t worry about making the crust thicker because after you add toppings the crust will inflate larger than the rest of the pizza when cooking.

Flatten it until it is the thickness you like being sure not to leave any holes in the dough.

Add sauce, cheese, and toppings. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes or until it reaches the desired crispness and coloring you would like to achieve.

Gluten Free Pizza


  1. Recently, a really close friend of my was told that she had to go on a Gluten Free diet. This friend has become very depressed because she feels that there are no things out there for her to eat. I am glad that you shared this post. I am going to make sure I share it with her so that she can see that she will be able to eat some of the same things, she just may have to go about it a different way.

  2. I love this. I have a friend that uses Glutten products for her son and she eats out all the time to gluten free pizza places but I am sure she could use this to eat at home. I will pass this along to her

  3. This is a delicious looking pizza and gluten free! I love it. I will certainly be pinning it and trying it out on my family. Do you think I could cook it on my pizza stone?

  4. Oh yes, gluten free pizza! The crust is always the hardest. I eat gluten-free and I always have a hard time with the crust. I can never get it quite done in the middle! I will try this recipe! I’d love for you to share it at my Gluten Free Fridays recipe sharing party! Its been going strong for three years. Each link up is yummed, pinned and tweeted! Hope to see you Friday!

  5. I have not seen pizza dough made with these ingredients before. I love to make pizza at home, it’s the perfect food for a date night. This would be the perfect way to get my husband to get more veggies in.

  6. That pizza looks absolutely delicious! I am not on a gluten free diet, but I love trying out some of the gluten free recipes that I find online. I am working on losing a few pounds and I heard that eating gluten free foods also helps.

  7. Whenever I think of a Gluten Free diet, I always think the food isn’t going to be that good. I remember when my mother was told that my brother had to get gluten free, she was so worried. Of course, as most mother’s do she figured it out and he turned out to be a healthy man. However, let’s just say he never had to worry about anyone eating his groceries. I must say this pizza looks very tasty and something that out entire family can enjoy when we have a dinner gathering. I am going to make sure I share this with him. Thanks for sharing.

  8. This looks so good! I love that gluten free recipes are easy to find now. When I first thought about going gluten free it seemed like it was going to be a huge restriction but I have since realized how many options there really are.

  9. I make gluten free pizza crust using garbanzo bean flour as one of the main ingredients. I love the way your crust looks because the recipe that I use does not produce a ‘crispy’ crust. I know that the Parm cheese must really help with the texture, and I’m curious about how the zucchini fits it. I’m definitely trying this out.

  10. Andrea Wyckoff says:

    Wow! This pizza looks AMAZING! I wish I could have one delivered to me!! Seriously. I look forward to trying this recipe for sure!

    Thanks so much!

  11. I love a good, gluten free pizza crust! This one looks great. 🙂

  12. Hello, my son is casein free. Any substitutes for the cheese? Thank you!!!

    • Have you looked into vegan cheeses? A lot of them are casein free and I think Whole Foods has some options as well. Good luck on you search, I know that it can be frustrating to find foods when you have restrictions. Thanks for stopping by the site!
