Super Simple Gluten-Free Margherita Pizza

Serves: 1 small pizza

Time : 20 minutes


- 1 cup blanched almond flour

- 1 tbsp coconut oil (measured solid)

- 1 egg

- 1 tsp Italian spice blend (or your choice of dried oregano, basil or parsley)

- 1 tsp garlic powder

- 3 tbsp high quality pizza sauce (stick to the least amount of ingredients as possible)

- 4 slices of fresh mozzarella di Bufala

- Fresh basil for garnish


1- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2- Mix almond flour, oil, egg, spices and garlic powder together until a dough forms (this can easily be done manually). Compact the dough into a ball. Roll out to desired thickness between 2 pieces of parchment paper. Remove the top piece of parchment paper. Transfer the crust on the parchment paper to a pizza pan. Poke a few times with a toothpick to prevent bubbling. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until slightly golden.

3- Remove the crust from the oven and let cool slightly. Increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees.

4- Top pizza crust with pizza sauce and fresh mozzarella. Bake for an extra 5 to 10 minutes, checking every few minutes for cheese consistency. Remove, top with fresh basil and enjoy!
