Coconut flour pizza crust

Making a homemade pizza isn’t as hard as you’d think. There are a ton of options from chicken, cauliflower, fathead dough and almond flour pizza crust that are great options. Even some you can buy right in the store. This coconut flour pizza crust recipe uses only 4 ingredients making it quick and simple to make. Even for the beginner baker! You mix all the ingredients then roll the dough out and bake it. Next, toss on your favorite toppings, simple!

How To Make Coconut Flour Pizza Crust

First, get all of your ingredients together:

  • Coconut flour
  • Whole Psyllium Husk
  • Olive Oil
  • Warm water

Next, combine all of your dry ingredients, This would be the coconut flour, psyllium husk and added seasoning if you like.

Grab some warm water and pour it into the dry mix. Then on top, toss in your olive oil and begin mixing. Texture will feel very dry and crumbly but mix well then form into a ball.

Allow the dough ball to sit for at least 5-10 minutes. Trust me you have to do this to be able to work it without that super crumbly texture.

Between 2 sheets of parchment paper roll out your dough into a circle. Doesn’t have to be perfect. Quick tip: Roll dough out then place on pizza baking sheet and trace the edges with a butter knife for the perfect circle.

Bake for 15 minutes in a preheated oven. Pizza won’t be pretty but add your toppings then place back in and the magic begins!

Pizza Topping Ideas

  • Cheese, this is always a must! The great thing about it as it serves as a base but it can be your only topping and still be great.
  • Homemade Pizza Sauce
  • Pepperoni
  • Bacon
  • Black olives
  • Red onion
  • Green bell peppers
  • Sausage

A mix of toppings or just only one is a great way to go. I personally go for the meat lovers style or the classic supreme.

What Does Coconut Flour Pizza Crust Taste Like

If you’re new to gluten free cooking this is a fair question. Some pizza crust such as those made with almond flour you can achieve a crispy, thin crust. Coconut flour does not get crispy. This crust recipe holds together beautifully as a pizza but it isn’t crispy. You get more of a classic soft dough texture with it. The crust is very filling by itself and as a topped pizza. This comes from the coconut flour being very dense so the crust itself does have a heavy texture. I do prefer a bland crust and this is a base recipe. Below you’ll find ideas to spice it up.

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Always pre-bake your crust before adding toppings. There is no way at 400ºF the crust will bake before your cheese burns.
  • Season your crust with classic pizza flavors such as parmesan, garlic powder, onion powder and/or Italian seasonings.
  • Bake on top of parchment paper or non-stick aluminum foil because it will stick to the pan. Spraying doesn’t help this in my experience.
