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

  • 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! 😉
  • Me: I have so many things to do this week. 
Also Me: Why don’t I made homemade sun butter cups for the PTO bake sale this week....🤦🏼‍♀️
The recipe is from @daniellewalker
  • #momhack I usually keep a veggie tray in my fridge. The kids pick out what goes in it (this week, they wanted some fruit in there too). Then, when they ask me a snack for the 10 millionth time in a day, I tell them to pull out the veggie tray. Sometimes, I load the center up with cheese cubes, too. It’s easy and healthy. I prep it once and reload it as needed throughout the week.
  • Will workout for 🍕🍕Wall sprint intervals, followed by 4 rounds of the workout on the second slide. And this shirt from @bejuststrong is super breathable and comfortable. Use code JESSTO10 at juststrong.com to save 10% and try it yourself!
  • Stomach bugs, head colds, sore throats, ear infections, and flu 😷 have all invaded our house in the past few weeks. Most days, I haven’t even hit my step goal, let alone my workout goals. But that’s part of the process too. Knowing when to rest is so important, and I still struggle with it. Today, I was able to get back to my workouts. I did two of the equipment free workouts from my latest blogpost. 10 second sprint intervals and the squats-pushups-pull-ups workout.
  • I’m a little, okay, a lot slow to the podcast thing. So far, the @kidsbiblestories podcast is a nightly family routine. (My kids LOVE it). Today, I’ve started listening to the Rise podcast by @msrachelhollis. Who else listens to podcasts? I’d love some recommendations
  • The amazingly talented @elizabethbaxter is sharing what she uses for her photography setup in her instagram stories. If you’ve you ever been curious what equipment others are using to get those amazing shots, it’s worth checking out! (You should totally be following her anyway, because she is super talented, so sweet, funny, and mom to some exceptionally cute little dudes)
