Coconut Flour Pizza Crust or low carb vegan pizza crust is an easy 4-ingredient crispy pizza base recipe made with coconut flour and psyllium husk, no cheese, and 100% dairy-free.
This recipe is inspired by my coconut flour flatbread recipe. I used to buy flatbread to make pizza base so I thought it would be a good idea to twist my flatbread recipe to make a healthy crispy pizza crust that all my family can enjoy.
Pizza nights are a very important family time for us and it matters to me that we can all enjoy the same food on that day.
It is a bit tricky to eat low-carb when your husband is vegan. I love my eggs and cheese SO much!!! But after several trials and adjustments, I finally achieved a delicious crispy coconut flour pizza crust vegan. So no cheese, dairy-free crust – but 100% low-carb too!
Don’t worry this is not a difficult recipe. It is actually a super easy 4-ingredient coconut flour pizza crust recipe made with:
Knead the dough for at least one minute.
At first, it will be moist, soft, you will feel like you knead mashed potato.
After one minute it dries out slightly and you will be able to gather the pieces of dough into a ball easily.
It is very important that you set aside for 10 minutes before rolling the dough. Psyllium husk is pure fiber and coconut flour contains 40% fiber too. Fiber is water absorbent but they need time to suck out the liquid.
It is during these 10 minutes that the dough becomes elastic, holds together and becomes easy to roll.
I’ve always said it, working with low-carb flours is different, it is not difficult at all it just requires some adjustments.
You must roll your dough between two sheets of parchment paper or the dough would stick to the rolling pin – big mess!
Also, grease that bottom sheet of parchment paper. Each brand is different and you don’t want the pizza crust to stick to the paper during baking.
This coconut flour crust needs to be pre-baked or it will get too soft and soggy. So don’t skip this simple step that makes the best coconut flour crust on earth! Note that this recipe makes about one 10-inch (26 cm) pizza crust.
Vegan ideas: my husband loves to add sun-dried tomatoes, refried black beans or roasted chickpeas, toasted walnuts, capsicum, spinach, and vegan mozzarella ‘cheese’.
Low carb ideas: I love vegetarian pizza and use lots of keto vegetables as keto pizza toppings like spinach black olives and a lot of mozzarella cheese.
Sometimes I sprinkle some dried oregano and rosemary on top as well plus spicy chili oil to serve. Of course any grilled meat or white base will be delicious as well.
