  1. What a great idea for the holidays. The more I use almond flour, the more I want to cook with it. I make something for people every week using almond flour to educate them on how healthy it is for them. Thank you so much.

  2. I used the pizza crust recipe to make empanadas or mini meat pies. The dough is a little tricky to work with but if you put it on wax paper and fold them over by folding over the wax paper, does that make sense?, they turn out really yummy!

  3. I like the crust a lot, i guess I need to write it down, so I don’t have to wtch the video everytime I want to make it! LOL

  4. Hi!
    Was wondering if you would mind posting your pizza crust recipe on your website? Lost my cookbook and had a difficult time finding it online – we love it so much

  5. CAn’t wait to make this pizza. However, I couldn’t find grape seed oil. Can I substitute olive oil? Or even almond oil?

    Has anyone used something other than grape seed oil?


  6. I made this pizza for lunch and it was delicious! My husband came in and had two slices and he’s not even gluten free! I used McCormick Mediterranean spice for the seasoning and topped it with sauce, fresh basil, mozzarella and olives. Magnificent! Thank you Elana and Jen for a wonderful recipe!!

  7. Elana,

    I LOVE your site. I recently went “Primal” and your site has very quickly become my go-to for ALL baking.

    I have found this to be the most satisfying LC/GF pizza crust on the internet. However, I am wondering if you have ever concocted one that is a little more “bready” in consistency? If you were to post such a thing, you would officially be my hero forever. Dairy free not required.


    • Thanks Grayson! I will let you know when I do. I’m so happy to hear this is the most satisfying LC/GF pizza crust!
