Coconut Flour Pizza Crust

Coconut Flour PizzaI have been wanting to make a coconut flour pizza and I am glad that I finally got to do it last weekend. The thing is, I actually tried 4 different coconut flour recipes that I found online. And while doing this, I wasted so many ingredients (especially eggs) because two of the recipes I tried are just totally crap. I think they are fake, someone just put together random ingredients and then posted a nice looking pizza photo along with it. The other recipes that I found used ingredients that I am not familiar with so I did not even consider making them.

And then finally, I found the perfect one. It is from this blog, the healthy home economist.  However, I converted the recipe in half and this yield about  a 5″ pizza round.

Ingredients:
2 eggs
2 tbsp coconut flour
2 tbsp plain yogurt

1/2 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp onion power
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
4 tbsp parmesan
salt to taste

pizza sauce
toppings of your choice

Procedure:
Mix the eggs, coconut flour and yogurt until there are no more lumps. Add the spices and the cheese. The batter will be a little thin but don’t worry it will come together in the end. Pour the batter on top of parchment paper until it is about 5 inches round. Make sure you don’t make it too thin on the ends, otherwise, they would just burn. Try to make the batter as evenly distributed as possible.

Bake at 375 C for 15 minutes. Then, pour pizza sauce and cheese over it and add your favorite toppings. In my case, I added all veggies- mushroom, zucchini, spinach and tomato. Put it back in the oven and broil it for 3 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly.

Best eaten when warm, as soon as it gets out of the oven.

    • Tapioca Flour – light, white and very smooth flour from cassava roots.
    This is confusing to many, but put simply, this person may be Non Celiac Gluten Intolerant (NCGI).
    If you can’t find one you should check the rest of the label to
    find out if the yogurt if gluten free or not.

    Do you think one can use buttermilk instead of yoghurt?
