Great to know:
- If you can’t have coconut flour, better choose another pizza recipe. Subbing the coconut flour in this recipe can be quite tricky since coconut flour is very different compared to other flours.
- Thinking of freezing some dough and pulling it out when in a time crunch? Yes, that’s doable. Just wrap it in some plastic wrap and seal it in a zip lock bag or airtight bag.
- To obtain a perfectly crispy base, bake your crust on a greased pizza pan that has holes in it.
- Replace the coconut milk with some cashew milk for a nutty burst of flavor (or any other milk of your choice).
- Don’t like sauce on your pizza? Just use some goat milk cheese instead, drizzling a bit of extra virgin olive oil on top and then topping with some sliced, pitted black olives.
Looking for healthy pizza recipes that can be rapidly prepared during weeknight dinners? This almond flour pizza crust fits the bill perfectly.
- Find the taste of coconut oil too overwhelming? Sub it with some grass-fed butter or ghee.
Great to know:
- If you decide to freeze some of your crust, be careful when handling it as it cracks easily.
- Do not try to sub the almond flour with coconut flour. This wouldn’t work as coconut flour absorbs a lot of moisture compared to almond flour.
- If you’re tempted to use only egg whites, please don’t. Throwing out the yolks = losing some omega-3 fatty acids, beta-carotene, vitamin D, choline, and selenium!
- To have a nice and crispy pizza crust, make sure to roll your dough about ¼-inch thick. For a thicker crust, double the recipe and bake until golden.
- To avoid having pizza dough stuck all over your hands, refrigerate it up to 1 hour before rolling it out.
- If you use jumbo eggs instead of large ones, make sure to add some more almond flour to your batter.
This pizza crust is a healthy option to satisfy your “pizza tooth”! Cover it with some sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, broccolis, ground beef, and a few seeded and diced jalapenos. Perfection!
- Can’t tolerate coconut flour? Sub it with ¼ cup of arrowroot starch.
- To handle your dough and be able to roll it out without making a mess, use 2-3 additional tablespoons of tapioca flour.
- Ended up with a puffed crust, full of air? Use a fork and gently poke a few holes in it.
- What makes healthy pizza recipes so fast to prep is that you can just throw all your ingredients in your food processor, give it a whiz and pop it in the oven.
This coconut flour and tapioca starch pizza crust will soon become one of your favorite healthy pizza recipes. This is because you don’t have to be a baking pro to make this dough. You just have to gently work the dough with your hands and it will turn out perfect!
- As mentioned previously, you’ll want to avoid using baking powder. As a rule of thumb, for every teaspoon of baking powder, use ¼ teaspoon of baking soda plus 1½ teaspoon of lemon juice or vinegar. So, since this recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of baking powder, use ¾ teaspoon of baking soda plus 4½ teaspoon of lemon juice or vinegar.
- Wondering how to make your crust without eggs? Just replace each egg with 1 tablespoon of Chia seeds or flax seeds + 3 tablespoons of water. Let the mixture stand for 10-15 minutes until it becomes thick and quite sticky. If you end up with a really wet dough, let it bake for longer and it will be fine.
Great to know:

This list of healthy pizza recipes would be incomplete without this pizza crust recipe. This crust tastes so yummy that you’ll end up removing all the toppings and savoring the crust alone. Yes! It’s that good!

Great to know:
- If you want to impress your guests with a beautiful pizza, put your dough on a parchment paper, in a Le Creuset skillet, in your oven. Don’t forget to heat it first, exactly like you would with a pizza stone.
- Can’t figure out why you ended up with a dough that didn’t rise at all? This may be due to old yeast or the water being at an incorrect temperature.
- Whatever substitutions you make, do not omit the tapioca starch in this recipe. Because this is what creates the required texture. If you don’t have starch, better go for pizza crusts that are prepped with only almond flour.
- Want to freeze your crust after baking it? Once you remove it from the freezer, allow it to thaw first, then add toppings of your choice. Then, you want to cook the crust for a few minutes for a nice and crispy finish.
- For a guaranteed success, cook your pizza for 7 minutes on one side until it is golden brown. Then, flip it over, baking it for 2 more minutes, before adding your toppings.
- Make sure that your parchment paper is good for 500F, else it will burn at the edges.
- Since this dough is quite sticky, rub some oil over your hands to make it easy when working with it.
