  1. Hi, I try to avoid using eggs in my cooking. Can you recommend a substitute to the egg in the almond flour pizza crust recipe. Banana, more grape seed oil, coconut milk etc.

    Thank you.

  2. Hello Elana
    Quick question. I just stumbled upon high oxalate foods and the troubles they can cause people who seem to be prone. I am wondering if you have any knowledge about it. I know that almonds are one of the highest oxalate foods and I have been eating a lot of almond flower and butter. I would love your feedback if you have any.

    • Angela, thanks for your comment! While I don’t do a formal food rotation diet, I do make sure not to eat the same foods each day :-)

  3. I made this pizza dough last night and my family and friends loved it! Thanks for such a great recipe. We will definitely make Again!!

  4. Forgive me if this question was asked before. I have your Almond Flour cookbook and want to make Pizza crusts. Can your pizza crust be made ahead and frozen then add the toppings and bake? Would it have to be thawed or would you just top it frozen and bake it? Baking times the same?

    Thanks so much for the book and in advance for the answer!!!!

    • Mary Ann, thanks so much for your comment and I’m so happy to hear you are enjoying my book! I haven’t frozen this crust so not sure how that would work :-)

  5. Just a request for those of us who do not like watching videos and greatly prefer reading recipes, would you please include a written list and instructions? Thank you so much.

    • Hi Susan, thanks for your comment! Unfortunately, I am not allowed to post recipes from my books unless the publisher grants a permission, and I do not have one for this recipe. If you’d like to get the written recipe for Pizza Crust feel free to grab a copy of The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook.

    • H, Susan: I simply paused the video after each step and ingredient and used Word to take down the recipe and directions.

  6. I tried this last week and loved it! I sent some to my son in TX and it travel very well and was still moist inside after 2 days. It is filling and satisfying. Again I loved it. I had sesame seeds but chose hemp and used raw pumpkin seeds for pistachio (I was out). Wonderful, wonderful!

  7. Jen did a good job.I like watching a “how to” video, then go to the recipe. It makes it easier and faster. Thank you Elana for sharing your recipes. They have revolutionized my cooking. We don’t have any illnesses. I just want to cook healthier.
