Easy Paleo pizza crust that is crispy, crunchy, and actually holds up when it’s topped is not only possible, but it’s easy to make.

Pizza is one of my children’s favorite meals. And, if I’m being honest with you, it’s one of mine too. When my husband and I made the transition to a paleo lifestyle years ago, the idea of never having pizza again was a harsh reality to accept. We did try a few of the vegetable-based pizza crust recipes, but none of them were quite right. They tended to be a bit soggy or really tricky to make.
Arrowroot Powder, arrowroot flour and arrowroot starch are all the same. It is a starchy substance that is extracted from the tropical arrowroot plant. It is gluten free, grain free, vegan and contains a higher amount of fiber, potassium, B vitamins, and iron than other starchy vegetables. Arrowroot powder is often used as a thickener for sauces, as corn starch would be. However, I also use it for frying, like in my Paleo Fried Barramundi, as well.
What I like the most about this paleo pizza crust is that it holds up to toppings. I usually pile sauce, cheese, peppers, onions, and pepperoni onto our pizza and it still holds up. Eating a slice of pizza with a fork and knife just doesn’t have the same feeling to it as picking it up to eat it does.
