  • Need a pizza crust recipe

    So I absolutly love making pizza on the grill in the summer but I am primal now so I'm having issues. I did the meatsa thing and it was good but not what I am looking for. I need a recipe for an almond flour, coconut flour or something along those lines. A dough that will be the most pizza like and something that is not watery or it will just drip through the grill. Preferably a dough someone has tried which is why I haven't just googled a recipe. Thanks in advance.

    It will be hard to make a dough the consistency of pizza dough (that you could put on a grill) with coconut or almond flour, BUT what you could try doing is making a crust with those, baking it for about 5-8 minutes to "solidify" a bit, then add your ingredients and put it on the grill.
    I have been experimenting with pizza crust type stuff -- haven't perfected it yet, but thus far, I've discovered that eggs, cheese, salt, baking powder, and any combination of coconut flour and almond flour are the main ingredients (optional: add some garlic). You need roughly 1 egg, 1/8 tsp baking powder, and 2 tsp of cheese (I used parmesean) for every 2 tbsp of coconut/almond flour. Using this combination, 2 eggs will yield a crust approximately the size of an individual pizza (depending on how thick you want it).

      Thanks alot. My buddy has a Primo Oval XL (which is like a Big Green Egg grill) and when you load it with some lump charcoal and wood chips for taste it makes a damn good pizza. I don't have a wood fired oven but this is pretty close.

        Part of what makes dough = dough is gluten.

        So if you're stuck on having a grilled pizza dough, you really only have two options:

        1. Go gluten free. Won't be grain free. Either buy a mix or check out a gluten free recipe on one of the millions of awesome gluten free blogs. The recipe will have gums, starches and a mix of 4-8 different gluten free grass/grain flours.

        2. If you aren't celiac, eat the dang grilled pizza as a treat. Nothing is going to compare or even come close.

        Oh there is the third option of trying something completely new! Maybe grilled chicken thighs with pizza toppings, or chicken breasts stuffed with pizza toppings... perhaps a grilled pork loin pizza roll? Because after all, real food rocks any dough!

          i can tolerate/appreciate quinoa, which not every primal dieter does. but if you do, here is a wonderful looking recipe for yeast risen pizza dough that i've been meaning to try for months. i'd bet a thousand dollars it will hold up on the grill. please let us know if you try it, and how it turns out!!!! i'll be trying mine next week.

          there is also this one, but it is not at all grill friendly, as it is more of a savory oven pancake. it is, however, amazing. it's the closest thing i've come to pizza crust, and is totally primal. enjoy!! (this one was my special little secret, but i couldn't let a fellow pizza fiend be in pain over a recipe.

              Thanks for the link cookie! I have lots of quinoa flour from my pre-primal days and I think I'll give this recipe a try. I've tried the zucchini/cauliflower/almond meal crusts but I missed the yeasty sour taste in them.

                We've been making pizza crusts using the cauliflower, cheese, egg recipe. The first time it was very much like runny mashed potatoes, but I think we've got a better version down that is much drier and heartier. You'd still have to cook it in the oven for about 10 min, but I see no reason why you couldn't then flip it on the grill and add your toppings.

                2 cup- cauliflower- roast dry florets in the oven at 400 until browned and fork tender. Chop into small pieces. Stir the cauliflower into a bowl with 2 cups of shredded cheese (we like part mozzarella and part provolone). Add in 2 eggs and mix well with your fingers. We season it with salt, pepper, oregano, fennel and bake it on parchment paper on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes. Then we flip it over on the cookie sheet and then peel the parchment paper off. This gets both sides done very well and guarantees no sticking. Sprinkle a few tbsp of parmesan cheese and bake for 5-6 min more. Then add toppings and broil til melty. This method tastes very close to real crust.

                  You can try blending sesame seeds and chia seeds with eggs and pre-cook it so that it will won't be liquid when you put your ingredients on it. You can pour it in a square bread mold that you previously greased so it won't stick.

                  The chia seed have a lot of fibers that expand when immersed in liquid so let it sit 10-15 minutes before pouring it in your bread mold before cooking the crust.

                  I'm trying the meatza today so I may try that alternative crust next.

                    I think the best recipe for the most "pizza" like dough is the one cookie gave a link too that is made with quinoa. Yes it has carbs in it so this won't be a daily meal but it isn't wheat and is the closest to a primal pizza I have seen.

                      yeah, i'd certainly use an egg in place of the xanthan gum, because that stuff's weird. but this stuff looks pretty great. i'd load it up with lots of meat to feel better about the carb content.

                        Ok, I'm new, so don't kill me for asking a dumb question. Is cheese primal? I keep getting conflicting info. I hear dairy is bad, but then see cheese or yogurt listed in places. I'm a huge pizza girl and was already sad about not having it again. But I love the Gluten Free link that was listed...just curious about cheese along with it. thx

                          dairy is allowed in moderation. Listen to your body. If your okay with cheese, enjoy it. I feel better when I limit my dairy to once or twice a week.

                            i love cheese. i eat raw cheese only, goat or cow. i've always eaten a lot of dairy in the form of live yogurt, raw cheeses, etc. and don't feel that it is necessary to remove it from my diet. lots of people ban it from their lives when they go primal, but they deserve much props for doing so. it takes the kind of strength that i do not have.
                            i also eat ice cream a lot. and chocolate. yikes, while writing this i realized i need to reform my diet.
                            i should start a new thread.

                              OK, I've made the cauliflower crust & I think it's delish! I used half to make a pizza, & half the next day to make finger "sandwiches". Another person tried the recipe with pepperjack instead of mozz - her spouse is celiac & has a reaction to it. I added some almond & coconut flours to mine. It comes out similar to a flat foccacia & has some marvelous flavour on it's own!
