Paleo Pizza Crust

Pizza has to be the ultimate comfort food.  It is definitely one of my family’s favorites!  Unfortunately, a lot of people (such as myself) are unable to enjoy pizza due to digestive issues associated with gluten and other grains.  Some just feel better over all avoiding gluten or grains in their diets.  Others are trying to avoid the necessary amount of carbs that come with pizza.  If you are one of these people, allow me to introduce you to my Paleo Pizza Crust!

Pepperoni and Italian Sausage Pizza

Pepperoni and Italian Sausage Pizza

This is the perfect gluten free and grain free pizza crust!  It is also dairy free for those of you that need to avoid dairy.  It is made up of a combination of almond, coconut, and tapioca flours.  I tested out this recipe a few weeks ago and my family loved it.  We will definitely be making this one again!

 

I made two pizzas.  One for the boys with pepperoni and Graziano’s Italian Sausage  and a veggie pizza filled with green/red bell pepper, red onion, and tomatoes for me.  Okay, I may have added a few pepperoni’s on mine…..

The best part about this pizza crust?  It was super easy to make!  No more delivery for this family!
