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.

(I am hearing amazing things about the Cauli-Power pizza crusts, but I have not tried them for myself yet. If you have tried them, I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section).

Arrowroot Powder

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.

Pizza Toppings

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.

Paleo Pizza Crust



  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F
  2. Combine the arrowroot powder, salt and 1/3 cup coconut flour in a medium bowl. Mix well.
  3. Pour in avocado oil and warm water and stir.
  4. Add the whisked egg and continue mixing until well combined.
  5. Add two-three more tablespoons of coconut flour – one tablespoon at a time – until the mixture is a soft but somewhat sticky dough.
  6. Turn out the dough onto a surface sprinkled with tapioca flour and knead it gently until it is in a manageable ball that does not stick to your hands.
  7. Place the pizza dough ball onto a sheet of parchment paper. Use a rolling pin that has been rubbed with arrowroot powder to carefully roll out the dough until it is fairly thin. You may need to add more arrowroot powder during this process
  8. Place rolled-out dough (still on parchment paper) into preheated oven onto a hot pizza stone or a sheet pan.
  9. Bake for 12-15 minutes, add toppings, and return to the oven for another 10-15 minutes

  • Apparently purple bell peppers exist! I was excited when my husband found this plant at @homedepot, and I’m even more excited that I haven’t killed it yet! 🎉 This will be a great way to help us eat the rainbow!
  • “I want to be strong like my mom.” That’s what my oldest told her gymnastics coach on the first day of lessons. Working out is as much for them as it for me. It makes me stronger, healthier, more patient, more energetic. It sets the right example for them. They see what a body is capable of. They see that women are strong. They see what hard work looks like. Yes, I do it for me, but I do it for them, too, and apparently, they are getting it. 🏋🏼‍♀️🤸‍♂️
  • I wanted salad for dinner tonight, so I made salmon burgers, topped with a mango salsa. I had mine on a pile of arugula and spinach and the rest of the family had theirs on buns. 😉Win-win
  • Woo-hoo!
  • Props to all of those ladies that can workout and still look cute. I am not one of them. 😂🤣Also, @erinoprea might be trying to kill me with her do anywhere workouts. 😂🤣😂🤣You should give them a try.
  • Finally some sunshine 🌞
  • Healthy doesn’t have to be complicated. Chicken sausage, sweet potatoes, bell peppers and broccoli (the peppers and broccoli I cut up yesterday for the kid’s veggie tray) on a sheet pan. Drizzle with avocado oil, sprinkle with salt, pepper, oregano, and some basil. Cook at 400 degrees for 20 minutes and you’re good to go.
  • Easy chicken stir fry for dinner tonight! I used chicken, veggies that I prepped earlier in the week for the kids’ veggie tray and the Stir Fry Sauce from @nomnompaleo. I can’t use orange just though, because it’s bad for my interstitial cystitis, so I used the juice from one of my kid’s juice boxes.... adapt and overcome, right?
  • Yesterday was a struggle with my health. I wanted to work out, but I knew that my body needed rest. It’s okay to rest. It’s okay to recover.
  • My three year old made me this crown and insists that I wear it all the time. She says it’s because I’m the Queen. 👸🏼👸🏼💁🏼‍♀️Clearly, she gets it.... 😂🤣
  • This week has been a rough one. The negative nancies were out in full force, but at the end of the day, their negativity has nothing to do with me, and everything to do with their own struggles. All I can do is offer kindness is return and keep doing what works for me. 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • There’s a 💯 percent chance that I would have completely forgotten that today was cinco de Mayo had I not gotten an email from @nomnompaleo today linking me to this recipe for Instant Pot Carnitas. So, clearly, I had to make it, and it’s SOOOOOO yummy! 😉
