Pizza Crust: Paleo/Vegan By: Erin Cummings
While this recipe is about the pizza crust, the big takeaway is you need this pizza oven in your life.
"Make Your Own Pizza Night" is a bribable family event. Meaning: I can't tell my kids for a week ahead of time that we are going to do "Make Your Own Pizza Night" and they will actually listen, mostly.
First, I'll give you my paleo pizza crust recipe. The pizza oven works WONDERS with actual pizza crust too, but I'm going to share a few of my tricks at the end.
Paleo Pizza Crust (Vegan/GF)
-1/2 cup almond flour
-3/4 cup arrowroot flour
- 3 & 3 Tbs coconut flour
-1/2 tsp onion powder
-1/2 tsp garlic powder
-1 tsp Italian seasoning
-3/4 tsp salt
-1/3 c warm water
-1/3 c olive oil
-1 tbs apple cider vinegar
-1 flax egg (if you aren't vegan you can use a regular egg)
Preheat oven to 450. Combine almond flour, arrowroot flour, 3 tbs coconut flour, and spices together. Add liquids, and mix with wooden spoon. Add the flax egg, and additional 3 tbs of coconut flour (one at a time). Work the dough into a circle on parchment paper.
If you are having trouble rolling out the dough, place the dough between two sheets of cling wrap or parchment paper to roll out.
Bake crust for 10 minutes. Put all the toppings on the pizza and put it back into the oven until your cheese is melted.
*If using the Ooni Pizza Oven, I like to pre-bake my crust because it is easier maneuvering the pizza inside the oven. I also pre-bake my regular pizza crusts too.

PIZZA OVEN: If you want to take your pizza's up a notch I highly suggest the Ooni Pizza Oven. There are quite a few options, but we have the pellet oven and find that it works great. It takes about 15-30 minutes to heat up, cooks the pizza really fast and is easy clean up. It gives the pizzas that great wood fire smell and taste too.
Oh yeah, and it's portable, which means it can be easily stored when not in use!
