Happy Friday luvs!!
Anyone else watching some March madness? We are. We don’t watch the games 100% but we like to cheer certain teams on. Hopefully this year we have some good games to watch.
And you know what is great to enjoy with friends while watching some basketball??
Okay that might not be everyone’s first pick but we know it’s the majority Ours too. Pizza is one classic recipe that we miss from time to time. But not anymore. Nope. We’ve got the pizza that hits our cravings to the T. Hopefully yours too!
How to make grain-free and nut-free pizza.
Now this pizza is grain-free as well as gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free and can be made dairy-free by using a dairy-free cheese of course. And if you are looking for a starch-free pizza crust check out this pizza crust of ours.
We added in some starch this time around because we like how starches can provide a lightness to a recipe. The starch we used was tapioca as we like the little bit of chewiness it provides the pizza crust. Arrowroot would probably work too.
The red sauce that we used in this pizza is one that we mentioned in our simple 3 ingredient pizza recipe. A brand that we love. We could have made our own tomato sauce as we know it’s not difficult to do… but to be honest we were lazy. And felt like this store-bought one. Sorry. It happens.
Okay back to the pizza!
We wanted to recreate an old favorite of ours. Keeping it paleo wasn’t a huge concern for us but it just happens to be paleo friendly.
Easy and quick grain-free gluten-free nut-free pizza crust made with simple ingredients!
We played around with what exactly we wanted the base of the pizza crust to be. You know we like using plantains as they are a real ingredient and our bodies like them. So that’s what we went with. But have no fear… we tried it with a raw sweet potato and it worked pretty well too!
Not sure if cauliflower would work in this crust recipe. You can always give it a shot. But we like our carbs… therefore we used plantains.
Delicious. Soft moist chewy pizza crust.
This pizza is super easy to make and does not require a yeast dough. Mainly because we are lazy like that.
This pizza blew us away. Made from just a few simple ingredients and topped with some of our favorites. We used goat cheese on top as that is a favorite (and again our bodies handle it pretty well).
Seriously this pizza taste almost like the real thing. Of course it’s not because of the ingredients we use, but hey we are pretty darn proud of it. It fits the pizza bill for us. Those with stomach issues like us you will enjoy this pizza!
Best part is now you can happily enjoy a lovely pizza too using this crust! Really, make your very own pizza with whatever toppings you like!

1) using a different starch--> you can try using another starch but we are unknown of the final texture
2) using sweet potato instead of plantain --> you can use a raw sweet potato for a little more denser crust
3) using another flour instead of plantains --> you can sub out the plantains for a nut meal, again unknown of the final texture
