I LOVE Pizza!!

by in Blog Posts, Food & Nutrition February 7, 2015

YES!  I love pizza?!  Who doesn’t love pizza??

Funny thing is, pizza is the LAST thing I ate in 2013 when I realized exactly what was causing all of my health issues at the time and went to eating 100% gluten-free.

It was the night of the Pink concert in Charlotte. I knew that eating gluten made me feel bad, but didn’t realize HOW badly until I chose to say “what the hell” and consumed 1/2 a pizza that night with my friend Shelly.  I will NEVER forget how sick I felt not only that night but for DAYS afterward.

I blogged last year about my journey with choosing to eat gluten-free and why I was not just following what seemed to be this new “fad” diet  –  Is your “normal” normal?

Ever since then, pizza is one thing that I miss eating so I am always on the hunt for a good gluten-free pizza crust recipe.

I can get gluten-free pizza at a local restaurant around the corner from my house, but I still like the idea of finding a healthier option and making my own. I have also tried cauliflower crust which is delicious also!!

I have narrowed my search down to 2 recipes. Let me know if you have one that you love and share it in comments!


  • 2/3 cup garbanzo bean flour
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder


1. Preheat oven to 375.

2. In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients. It should be a thick paste.

3. Grease an iron skillet with olive oil and spread the crust around.

4. Top your pizza with whatever your heart desires!

5. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes, or until crust is firm. Slice with a pizza cutter.



  • 2 cups almond flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1 cup arrowroot powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease a round pizza pan, cookie sheet or pizza stone.

2. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk to blend together.

3. Add eggs and almond milk to the dry ingredients. Mix well. (The batter will be runny–not like typical pizza dough.)

4. Use a spatula to spread batter onto greased pan.

5. Bake crust in preheated oven 8-12 minutes.

6. Remove crust from oven and top with sauce and desired toppings.

7. Bake for another 10-15 minutes. Enjoy!
