Easy Paleo Pizza Recipe. It’s so good.

Flipping heck this paleo pizza recipe is so good. We’ve made cauliflower base pizza before and we have a recipe using sweet potato from our book (they’re both awesome)… but we just wanted a paleo pizza recipe that actually stayed together when you pick it up. Like a REAL pizza.

And wah-lah! This one will do the trick! Plus, you can make the base a little thicker and use it as a foccacia-ry type bread to dip in dips, which is definitely fun. Dipping anything in yum dips is fun. We did that, you can check it out HERE!

We made this pizza using cassava four but you could also use tapioca or arrowroot flour, you may need to add some extra herbs or spices to the mix for extra taste. Then we topped it with left over fridge stuff. Think tandoori chicken (from the best Indian place down the road, all gluten free and amazing), zucchini, mushrooms and organic parmesan cheese (you can leave off the cheese for 100% paleo or why not try make a batch of our paleo cheese!). 

The only question you need to ask and answer is: when is pizza night? When you have your answer, whack this baby on your to-make list! We all have those lists, right? Well… we do!

Always merrymaking,

Stuff you need
For the base
  1. 1 cup cassava flour
  2. (or 1 and 1/2 cups tapioca/arrowroot flour)
  3. 1/4 cup coconut flour (use 1/2 cup if you used tapioca)
  4. 1/4 cup coconut milk (canned)
  5. 1/4 cup ghee or butter melted
  6. 1 tbs. dried rosemary
  7. 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  8. 4 eggs
  9. Pinch of salt
  10. For the toppings (we used)
  11. Left over tandoori chicken
  12. 1 avocado
  13. 1 zucchini chopped
  14. 10 button mushrooms sliced
  15. 1/2 cup grated organic parmesan cheese
  16. 100% tomato paste
Now what
  1. Preheat oven to 200Β°C (400Β°F) and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. In a bowl mix the flours, salt and rosemary together. Leave this for now.
  3. In a small bowl whisk the eggs. Then add the coconut milk, apple cider vinegar and ghee, mix until combined.
  4. Add the egg mixture to the bowl with the flours, stir super well.
  5. Spread the pizza mix on to the prepared baking tray. We made ours into a circle shape. It should be about 1/2 cm (1/4 inch) thick.
  6. Place in the oven for 10 minutes or until golden brown on top!
  7. Take out, add your toppings and place back in to the oven for 10 minutes.

  1. This looks mouthlicious! I am definitely going to try it with cashew cheese soon! I just whipped some up yesterday by soaking two cups of cashews and then pulsing them up with garlic, lemon, and yeast. It was delicious but my gorgeous twin put my container of it on the floor to clean out the fridge and our Corgi Rueger went straight for it. At first I was peeved but I guess he could smell how delicious it was =p

    I’ll try the crust with it and report back. You know, for mouth science =D

  3. Hello, Very new to Paleo here but can I substitute the cassava flour for Arrowroot flour? Thanks!

  4. IVe tried a tapioca base before and it seemed really dense and heavy in my belly, but ill try this one too. ( I have a feeling too much tapioca doesn’t agree with me (as high GI foods don’t tend to, but I cant be sure its that so I’ll give it a go)

  5. Thanks so much for this recipe! I made this last night. However I found that after mixing all ingredients for the base, it was still quite runny and not dough like as the recipe implies. I ended up using half as much again of the Tapioca and coconut flour which made it thick enough to spread and shape on a tray but still not a “dough”. It turned out ok though and tasted great! What consistency should be base be after all ingredients are mixed?

  9. Great recipe. I did use arrowroot flour and noticed it needed a lot more of both flours for it to turn into a dough, but that was fine. I also let the dough sit for a little while so the coconut flour could be absorbed a bit and suck in some of the liquid.
    It tasted amazing and is now my new go to pizza base πŸ™‚
    PS. Your recipes are amazing and I think this is the 6th one I have tried with no issues.

    Hi Stacey! Thanks for your comment! Our mum tested it out for us over the weekend and she need extra arrowroot flour so we will update this now! Great tip re: leaving to sit! So happy to hear this! Thanks πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ xx

  11. Love the pizza base. I needed to add extra coconut flour and tapioca, but the finished dough was terrific. Real pizza. Wow!
    I have just modified the recipe to make Christmas Fruit Mince Tart shells (used mixed spice instead of herbs, added some vanilla, and omitted the vinegar). Awesome! I just pressed the dough into the tart shell tin, blind baked it for 5 minutes, added the fruit mince, and put a star of dough on top. Back in the oven for 15 minutes. Absolutely great. Thanks!

    Hey Karen thanks for your feedback… we have ‘make pizza’ on our to-do list (bugger have to eat it again hehe). What a smart idea! You’ll have to send us a picture of the tarts! They sounds amazing! xx

  13. I had the exact same problem and I was using Tapioca flour. The second time I made it, I used only 2 eggs and it turned out perfect. YAY I am so happy, I can eat Pizza again !! Thank You Merrymaker Sisters πŸ™‚

    YAY! We changed the recipe slightly to add a little more coconut flour with the tapioca flour. Carla tested it out the other night. She hated that job πŸ˜› Glad you like it!

  15. Just made this with Arrowroot and it was awesome. So excited to have a recipe for a pizza base that actually tastes likes pizza and is so simple to make! Also, I’d run out of butter so used coconut oil and it turned out fine. Tasted fantastic with a bit of your paleo cheese too. Thanks Emma and Carla, you create such amazing recipes!! Keep them coming πŸ™‚

  24. Hi. Wondering what I might be doing wrong? The dough seems to stay doughy even after cooking. It is as if the top and bottom cook but not the middle. I spread it out ok but not cooking. Using tapioca and coconut flour as don’t have cassava. Please help with some tips ?

  26. Hi beautiful ladies!
    I was wondering what you thought about using green banana flour? I have a packet in the pantry that I’m busting to use but wasn’t sure about the amount? What’s your advice?
