Delicious thin-crust pizza, sturdy enough to hold in you hand—this easy almond flour pizza crust is the perfect base for all your favorite pizza toppings.

Pizza, pizza, pizza!! My family loves pizza. We started a tradition about 6 or 7 years ago of enjoying pizza and a movie on Friday nights. Every Friday morning I would make pizza dough from scratch, let it rise all day, and then add toppings and bake it for dinner. Since we’ve changed to a low-carb diet, I’ve experimented with cauliflower crusts, mixed vegetable crusts (same idea, just switching it up), and other crust alternatives. There are lots of fun and tasty options, but this almond flour pizza crust is our favorite when we’re looking for a “traditional” crust.

Cauliflower and other vegetable crusts taste great (although they can make your towels really stinky), but you can’t hold them in your hand like a traditional crust. We were always eating our pizza with a fork. When I stumbled upon fathead pizza dough, I was intrigued. This almond flour pizza crust is my version of the fathead dough. I removed the egg and added garlic, herbs, and olive oil, so it’s more like the the traditional pizza dough I made many years ago. This pizza crust has all the great flavors of traditional dough, minus the carbohydrates from the wheat flour.

How to Make Almond Flour Pizza Dough

Making the almond flour pizza dough is really very simple. Start by adding mozzarella cheese, cream cheese, garlic powder, Italian herbs, and salt to a bowl. Microwave for 1 minute. Then, mix everything together as best as you can. The cheese won’t be completely melted at this point, so microwave it for another minute, and mix again. Next, add the almond flour.

The almond flour probably won’t mix in completely, so microwave it for an additional minute. Then add the olive oil. Mix everything together until it starts looking like a dough. Finally, once it’s completely combined, add the baking powder. Mix until the baking powder is just incorporated and place the dough on a silicone mat or parchment paper.

I like rolling my dough out on a silicone mat because it’s the exact size of my baking pan. Put a second silicone mat or piece of parchment paper on top. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough. The mat or parchment paper on top prevents the dough from sticking to the rolling pin. Bake the almond flour pizza crust for 10 minutes at 425º F.

Freeze the Crust for Quick Meals Later

The pizza crust will come out of the oven golden and delicious. If you want a quick, easy meal for later, you can freeze the pizza crust. First, let it cool. Then cut it into quarters and store the crust in a gallon-size zip-top bag in the freezer. When you’re ready to use your frozen crust, pull out as much crust as you need. Pre-heat the oven to 425º F. While the oven pre-heats, top your pizza crust (no need to thaw). When the oven is ready, bake for 8-10 minutes and you’ll have fresh, hot pizza.

If you’re making your pizza to serve immediately, add your sauce and toppings after the crust is baked. This pizza has red pizza sauce, pepperoni, avocado, black olives, and mozzarella. The classics are nice, but it’s fun to try out new topping combinations. Once you have your pizza topped, put it back in the oven for about 8 minutes, until the cheese melts. Cut the pizza into pieces and enjoy. If you need to re-heat leftovers, bake them in the oven at 350º F for 5-7 minutes.

  4. Microwave the ingredients for 1 more minute. Next, add the olive oil and mix everything together until it looks like a dough. As the dough gets stiffer, start folding from the outside in to combine. Finally, add the baking powder and fold in until just combined.
  5. Place the pizza dough on a silicone mat or sheet of parchment. Top with a second silicone mat or parchment sheet. Roll out the dough until it’s the size of your baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden.
  6. After the crust is baked, top with your favorite toppings. Bake for an additional 8 minutes, until the cheese is melted. Slice up your pizza and enjoy!!
  7. You can also freeze the almond flour pizza crust after the first baking. Cut the crust into quarters and store in a gallon-size zip-top bag. When you’re ready to use the frozen crust, pre-heat the oven to 425º F. Top your crust (no need to thaw) and bake for 8-10 minutes.
