Prepared by Sarah Shilhavy, Photos by Jeremiah Shilhavy

Servings: 1 small pizza
Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Beat eggs in a medium sized bowl. Mix in milk and garlic.

Add remaining ingredients and beat into the milk mixture. The dough will be thinner in consistency then regular dough (more like a batter). Add just a bit more coconut flour if needed. The dough needs to be spreadable and thin but not extremely liquid-y like pancake batter.

Spread thinly and evenly on a pizza pan or cookie sheet lined with greased parchment paper (parchment paper is a must require!! This sticks terribly!).

Bake for 12-20 minutes in preheated oven. Crust is done when fully cooked through and bottom edges begin to brown.

Remove crust from oven and turn over. Carefully peel parchment paper from the bottom of the crust and place crust back on parchment paper with the bottom side up.

Top your pizza with sauce and whatever else you would like. Bake for another 5-10 minutes, depending on the toppings.

I absolutely love Pizza, so this Coconut Flour Pizza recipe is definitely bookmarked!

I dehydrated the finished baked product to turn it into chips!! I divided the crust into two, baked them according to directions then cut them w/ a pizza cutter and placed them in my dehydrator overnight at 135 degrees. They were crisp, wonderful and ready to be dunked in salsa for the superbowl!!

Thank you very much Jennifer!!!!!!
I was missing pizza for 4 years being grain free. Your recipe rocked my world. It's delicious!!! I'm eating while typing with smile on my face.

This is a really decent gluten free pizza crust. Much better tasting than Pizzeria Uno's pizza crust.

Do you think that this can be frozen after the initial baking, before toppings are put on?

I can't wait to try this recipe once I get some coconut flour. I will post a comment with my results once I make it.
# Posted By Alyssa | 8/7/10 6:52 PM
Yes, I'm sure it would freeze well.

I have two of these in the oven right now, they smell great! I added about 1/4 cup of flax meal and it made it a nice dough texture.
# Posted By Andria | 8/10/10 5:14 PM
Can you make this on the stove top with a flat pan? My oven has been out of order, and I for now I've been making regular pizza dough, but having to cook it stovetop. It's not the same, at all (much denser) however it worked. Do you think that will work with this? Thanks
# Posted By Jenny | 8/11/10 3:56 PM
Probably; coconut flour just burns easily sometimes so keep an eye on it.
# Posted By Sarah | 8/12/10 11:49 AM
Ok, just tried it - flavor GREAT!!! But DO NOT use Wax paper!! First - it makes LOTS of smoke to set off sensitive smoke detectors in your home :) Second... couldn't use the crust cuz it stuck to the wax paper even greased waxed paper!!! Just FYI!
# Posted By Alicia | 1/10/11 12:08 PM
Alicia: You should only use parchment paper for baking, as the recipe calls for. Wax paper, as you mentioned, will burn and doesn't help with sticking issues at all. So, only use parchment paper and you'll have no problems. :)
# Posted By Sarah:) | 1/10/11 12:30 PM
Super good! I followed recipe (using lt coconut milk) and baked in well greased cast iron skillet... perfect! No sticking and no need for parchment paper.
# Posted By abbi | 3/6/11 1:29 PM
Can you use plain water for the milk/coconut milk?
# Posted By Rebecca | 4/21/11 9:23 PM
Rebecca: Water should work.
# Posted By Sarah:) | 4/21/11 10:22 PM
I don't east dairy products, is there anything that you know of that can be used to substitute eggs? I've missed out on a lot of baked goods because of the use of eggs. Thankfully, I can use the coconut milk, but what the eggs?
# Posted By Angela | 5/31/11 7:13 PM
Angela: There are many egg substitutions out there, you could do a search on a search engine to see your options. One that is very popular and works well is "flax eggs" (1 tablespoon of freshly ground flax seeds soaked 2 tablespoons of water for 3 minutes). You can see it used in a recipe like this:

Another one that I've had success with is corn starch (1 tablespoon corn starch to 1-3 tablespoons water/milk).

Give those a try and see how it works for you!
# Posted By Sarah:) | 5/31/11 8:04 PM
My first attempt was a bit too moist. I thought I had it thick enough at first, but it came out not so right. I'll try it again this weekend with a thicker consistency and see how it goes. Tasted great though!
# Posted By James | 7/26/11 7:08 PM
Awesome! I've been missing pizza! I didn't have whole milk so I used half a cup of Greek yogurt and half a cup of skim milk. It came out great!
# Posted By Nicky | 11/29/11 6:05 PM
Angela: Eggs are non-dairy.
# Posted By Kirsten | 12/21/11 10:49 AM
Many thanks for this recipe!! I eagerly tried it at home but had no coconut milk or milk - so I used plain yoghurt. The end result was delicious - the based is delicious by itself.
# Posted By Sam | 1/21/12 10:36 AM
Not a bad mix. I waited till the edges were brown, but it came out a little bit more moist than I like. I will try upping the baking time in the future, and see if that helps. Maybe swapping out some of the milk for an egg might help too...
The base would make a great bread replacement.
# Posted By Steven | 1/27/12 3:49 PM
Just made this and loved it! couldn't get the texture right was a lot thicker than expected and didn't stay together after it was cooked. Any suggestions for next time? I added more milk while mixing, but the dough was a little more like cookie dough. SO glad to find a pizza I can eat!
# Posted By Chelsea | 4/20/12 7:18 PM
There r so many great coconut flour recipes out there and they taste great, but it seems every time I eat coconut flour things they lay in my stomach like a rock and bloat me up?? Is this normal ??
# Posted By Brenda | 9/26/12 4:49 AM
I made a version of this with only 2 tbsp of coconut flour with a scoop of protein powder, 2 eggs, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, 1tsp baking powder and a tbsp of full-fat mayo,salt and spices. I added water until the consistency was a bit thicker than pancake batter. It turned out pretty good. But I broiled the pizza afterwards. I might try to bake the topping-covered pizza at 400 next time.
# Posted By Karen | 11/15/12 6:17 PM
I posted about the crust I made using protein powder and less coconut flour 2 days ago. I wanted to add a couple comments. First, the crust was very tasty and much like using a biscuit bread for a crust. It tasted yummy the next day to (I reheated it in the toaster oven). I am certain it will freeze well. Second, I ate the pizza happily (on two occasions) despite having all kinds of issues with the coconut fiber. Not sure why but my system cant handle coconut flour. I only used 2 tablespoons and my goodness, did I ever have a belly ache. I am still paying for my indulgence. Anyone else have problems with this flour? I am fine with other coconut products. I also seem to have trouble with almond flour which is why I turned to the coconut flour...I may need to switch to sunflower seed flour that I grind myself.
# Posted By Karen | 11/17/12 7:09 AM
I make it with 40 grams of coconut flour, 20 grams of almond flour (almonds grinded in coffee grinder), 150ml of milk and some cheddar cheese. garlic and brsl, Fricken amazing!

I cook the toppings in fry pan before hand (not too much meat) in coconut oil. oh and I use full fat cheddar cheese and tomato paste. with the toppings as well.
# Posted By bob l | 12/9/12 8:39 PM
Coconut flour is not anything like regular wheat flour. You need EGGS in this to make it work. It has a major learning curve. I am excited to try this pizza crust.
# Posted By Doxielvr3 | 4/10/13 5:05 PM
Someone said they couldn't eat dairy and asked what to substitute eggs with. EGGS are NOT dairy!!!! She may have an egg allergy but that is not part of the "dairy" family.
# Posted By SM | 6/20/13 5:49 PM
Could use egg replacements? Or pasterized farm eggs. It stopped my allergy.
# Posted By Kathrine White | 7/7/13 5:07 PM
I love the chip Idea, but no dehyd. could I bake them at 200 .
# Posted By Kathrine White | 7/9/13 10:46 AM
I would think you could do 200 degrees, maybe not over night. Good luck!
# Posted By Pamela | 7/9/13 10:55 PM
This looks amazing and I'm making it tomorrow! Question, I feel like I've heard somewhere that it's better to cook the crust or the tortillas made with coconut crust the night before because it allows it to be a little more firm and substantial. Opinions? Quick response equal e-highfives!
# Posted By Natalie | 8/2/13 8:37 PM
Could I use almond milk in lieu of whole or coconut milk? My hanks!
# Posted By Cecile | 12/2/13 12:24 PM
Two real negatives for me. One, somehow I didn't expect it to have so much coconut flavor. It really tasted like something that would do much better in muffins and quick-breads rather than pizza. Second, the crust was overly delicate and extremely grainy, nothing like what I think of as pizza crust. I guess if you could reorient yourself to those elements it would be okay, but I don't think I'm going to pursue pizza again with this flour as a gluten-free alternative. Muffins and quick-breads yes!
