Now that we have gotten the O.K. to incorporate coconut flour into our allergy-free/paleo lifestyle… (YES!!)… I have been having all sorts of fun in the kitchen! Including this allergy-free paleo pizza crust!
I have avoided trying any of the veggie based pizza crusts that I saw floating around the web because I was honestly not sure about how well they would hold up, and several of them also used many ingredients that we just don’t cook with. This one held together pretty well and is more protein packed so it also fills you up!
This dough is easy to press out! Unfortunately, that means you wont be tossing any lovely lumps of dough into the air like some master pizza chef.
Always see the bright side of things…
We have yet to come up with any healthy “cheese” replacers, but I found adding some shredded & sautéed zucchini on top of a tomato based sauce tastes great and would probably be a little less bloating 😉
