This paleo pizza crust tastes just like the real thing, but is made gluten free, grain free, and dairy free. It’s the perfect primal canvas for all your favorite toppings!
- ⅓ cup (2 2/3 fluid ounces) warm water
- 3 tablespoons (42 g) extra virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
- 1 tablespoon (21 g) honey
- 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (or 1 3/4 teaspoons instant yeast)
- 1 egg (50 g, weighed out of shell) at room temperature, beaten
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt, plus a pinch for sprinkling
- 1¾ cups (210 g) tapioca starch/flour, divided, plus more for dusting
- 1 cup (120 g) almond flour, plus more as needed
- Pizza toppings, as desired
- In a large bowl, place the warm water, olive oil, and honey and whisk to combine well. Sprinkle the yeast on top and let it sit for about 5 minutes, until foamy. Whisk in the egg. Add the salt and 1½ cups (180 g) of the tapioca flour and whisk until a smooth, sticky batter forms. Switch to a spatula or wooden spoon and stir in the almond flour, and then stir in the remaining tapioca flour. The dough should appear shaggy.
- Dust your hands with a little tapioca flour and press the dough into a ball, kneading it a bit to get any floury bits mixed in. If it’s too sticky to come together, add additional almond flour a tablespoons at a time. Return the ball of dough to the bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, and set it in a warm place for 45 minutes (I usually set my oven to 200°F just for a couple minutes, then turn it off. I then place the bowl of dough in the oven, which is just a little above room temperature). The dough won’t double in size, but will get noticeably bigger. Place a pizza stone or large, overturned rimmed baking sheet in the oven and preheat to 375°F.
