The Best Alternative Gluten-Free Pizza Crust Recipes - This list includes some of the best alternative, gluten-free crust recipes for making a delicious pizza.
Pizza is one of my favorite foods! Over the years, as I've played around with being both gluten-free and grain-free, I've made some pretty terrific crusts. I wanted to include them in one place as a reference for those of you that enjoy pizza as much as I do!
Zucchini Pizza Crust
This delicious variation of the traditional pie features the green squash and almond meal as the base...
One-third of the crust boasts almost 10 grams of protein!
Personal Pan Cauliflower Pizza Crust
After many laborious hours of perfecting this dairy-free crust, I finally created a pie that I am very pleased with.
Only 200 calories for the entire crust, and it conveniently makes just enough for one hungry pizza-lover.
Quinoa Pizza Crust
If you're egg-free, this may be just what you're looking for...
With only five ingredients and NO gluten, eggs, or dairy, this is the most allergy-friendly recipe of the bunch!
Low Carb Eggplant Pizzas
Perhaps you need something in a hurry?
These eggplant pizzas are quick, easy, and based entirely off of vegetables (and each slice is only nine calories).
Red Lentil Pizza Crust
This is my go-to gluten-free crust! I make it at least once a week. I love the added protein and fiber I get from the red lentils, and it tastes delicious when topped with sauce and cheese!
Coconut Flour Pizza Crust
This crust has the most bread-like taste in the bunch, probably because it's made with actual flour. It mixes easily without any type of appliance needed, and it bakes fast!
I thought I'd include this delicious buckwheat flatbread, as it actually makes a great pizza base!
The BEST Homemade Pizza Sauce
I am convinced that this is the best pizza sauce! I think the secret is the fennel seeds. Growing up, my dad was a great cook and used to add fennel seeds to his sauce, which gave it that extra 'something'.
Fresh Tomato Marinara
If you're looking for something a bit more modern and hip, you might consider this delicious marinara made with fresh Roma tomatoes. Just five ingredients create something so special that's delicious atop pizza!
Simple Cherry Tomato Sauce
Did you know cherry tomatoes are lower in oxalates than regular tomatoes? If you're keen on watching your oxalate intake, you might try this yummy recipe, which also includes capers for a nice tang!
Spicy Broccoli Pesto
Pesto meets broccoli and red pepper flakes in this scrumptious spread that is a great alternative to traditional tomato marinara.
Our Favorite Adaptable Pesto
I love this pesto, as you can use whatever green you happen to have on hand! It also employs hemp seeds, making it nut-free for those with allergies. I've also used pumpkin seeds with great success.
Some of my favorites are part-skim mozzarella, white cheddar, and parmesan.
Provolone is also a great option, as is goat cheese!
The most classic option for a meat topping is pepperoni. I personally buy a turkey pepperoni from my local health food store that is a dead ringer for the pork variety!
Ham is another option, as are sausage and ground beef.
My favorite meat topping is my Ground Turkey Sausage recipe. It uses ground turkey with a few spices, and it tastes exactly like sausage to me!
I love adding veggies atop pizza! They add both flavor and nutrition, and they just make the pizza look good, in my opinion.
Some of my favorites include green bell pepper, red onion, Kalamata olive, and teeny bits of broccoli.
Really, any vegetable is game, as long as you enjoy it!
Your quinoa crust motivated me to try quinoa....and now I'm hooked. Your recipe was so easy to use. In my version I added garlic, onion, and fresh basil as I tend to be an herb and spice junkie! Topped this great crust with fresh tomato puree, basil, and feta. I'm happy to report the husband and kiddos enjoyed! Mom win!
Haha, that's awesome Carmen! I'm so happy to hear your kids enjoyed it too! 🙂
