Paleo Pizza Crust



  • First, preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a pizza pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine cassava flour, tapioca flour, sea salt and garlic powder. Stir.
  • Then, add in egg, olive oil and warm water. Stir until a sticky dough forms. Allow pizza dough to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  • Spread about 2 tablespoons tapioca flour onto parchment lined pan. Coat hands in tapioca flour as well.
  • On the pan, form a large ball with dough. Use your hands to press dough into a large crust, approximately ½ inch thick. Wipe off any excess tapioca flour from crust. Brush a little olive oil all over crust.
  • Bake pizza crust without toppings for 15 minutes.
  • Remove pizza from oven. Add sauce, cheese, and other desired toppings. Bake for another 7 to 8 minutes or until cheese has melted.
  • Finally, remove from oven and garnish with chopped basil and a balsamic drizzle if desired.


  • See blog post above for step by step photos.
  • I do not recommend substituting for the cassava flour.  This will not work well with almond flour or coconut flour.
  • Do not try to replace the egg with a Vegan replacement.  The egg is very important!
  • Coat both hands and parchment paper with tapioca flour to avoid sticking.
  • Continue baking pizza (with toppings) until cheese is melted and the crust has reached desired level of crispiness.
  • To freeze pizza, slice into individual slices and freeze.
  • I have had the best luck with Vevan Vegan cheese, but feel free to use your favorite.
