Almond Flour Pizza Crust Ingredients
Here’s the low down on our almond flour pizza crust ingredients:
A little background here — gluten (the protein in wheat flour) gives traditional baked goods structure, while binding everything together.
Arrowroot powder does an incredible job at giving this almond flour pizza crust its form! It has a mild taste, and is paleo/gluten free (win/win/win!).
That said, it isn’t low carb. If low carb is your goal, opt for a less fluffy dough, by using only almond flour in this recipe.
Use a FINE GRAIN almond flour, such as Trader Joe’s brand or Bob’s Red Mill.
Since almond flour is heavier than traditional wheat, the fine grain size prevents this low carb flour from weighing down the ingredients in our pizza crust.
The rest of our pizza crust ingredients are low carb shopping list staples!
Now, let’s get mixing…

Place your dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Heads up, the dough will be sticky! So its easiest to handle with wet hands. Press your almond flour pizza crust into a circle, and form the crust by pinching/folding the edge.
Puncture the center of the dough with a fork (this prevents air bubbles). Then brush your almond flour crust with olive oil.
Bake for 15-18 minutes until the crust becomes golden brown.
Add toppings and continue to bake. If the crust starts browning, use a foil collar to protect it from over-cooking.
Cut into 8 slices and enjoy!
Low Carb Pizza Crust Variations
Since we need to keep the ratio of wet to dry ingredients the same, there aren’t a ton of ways to change this low carb pizza crust.
But if you’d like to add your flair to this almond flour pizza crust, here are a few ways to mix things up:
- Add some fresh herbs for a fragrant pop of flavor.
- Use spices to kick-up the yummy factor.
- Sprinkle with chia or flax seeds to boost your fiber intake.
Can I Make This Into a Coconut Flour Pizza Crust?
Unfortunately, coconut flour and almond flour can’t be swapped using a 1:1 ratio, as coconut flour is extremely dry, and requires more liquids in baking.
If you’re looking for a coconut flour pizza crust, I suggest trying a recipe created for that ingredient specifically instead.
Low Carb Pizza Sauce
Low carb pizza sauce can be whatever you want it to be! To name a few, here are some sauces for guaranteed almond flour pizza crust wins:
- Traditional pizza sauce – read the label to make sure no sugar has been added to store bought products!
- Low carb bbq sauce
Choosing your pizza toppings is the most fun part of it all!
I love mixing and matching different textures and flavors. Here are some awesome paleo pizza toppings to REALLY get your mouth watering!
- Use low carb/paleo (whatever your eating plan) approved sauces – suggestions above.
- Cheese, or…
- Nutritional yeast is a tasty cheese replacement for those sticking to a paleo meal plan. Make sure you like the taste before using it!
- Different meats complete the dish — I LOVE Italian sausage, paleo meatballs, pepperoni, or shredded chicken.
- Low carb vegetables – bell peppers, mushrooms and onions are always an almond flour pizza crust WIN!
- Fresh herbs – add these after baking the crust for a fresh and delicious treat.
- Olives + pepperoncinis.
