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. The 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 the 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.

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!

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.
