Paleo Pizza Crust: BBQ Chicken Pizza

This Paleo Pizza Crust, BBQ Chicken style, is one of our favorites! The crust is the perfect all-purpose gluten-free and grain-free crust that everyone will love! The homemade BBQ sauce will be a favorite all season long.

Let me be real for a minute here. Back when my brother and I were kids, Domino’s was on speed dial. In fact, I can recite our local Domino’s phone number still to this day (I’m not proud of this). The reason I’m sharing this is so you understand how I feel (felt) about pizza, specifically thin crust. With pepperoni. So good and now obviously so so bad.

Paleo Pizza Crust: BBQ Chicken Pizza

Many of you have tried my Paleo Pizza Crust made with eggplant, and although I love that recipe, I wanted something more dough-like, more crust-like, and simpler to throw together. After all, we don’t always have 1/2 hour to grate eggplant, and start making the pizza.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have virtually watched me make 5 versions of this to get it right, and now it is soooo right. I made this into BBQ Chicken Pizza with my Sweet and Smoky BBQ Sauce, but you can get as crazy as you want with toppings!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • In a bowl combine tapioca, coconut flour, baking powder, salt, garlic, Italian seasoning, and flax
  • Add in warm water and mix well
  • Add in palm shortening and egg; mix well
  • Line a baking sheet with slipat baking mat or parchment paper; sprinkle with tapioca flour
  • Roll the dough into a ball (it'll be somewhat sticky- it's okay)
  • Plop the ball onto your baking sheet and cover with an additional peach of parchment paper
  • Using a roller, gently roll out dough until thin*
  • Bake until crispy- about 20 minutes
  • Add desired toppings and place bake in the oven for 5-7 minutes**
  • Recipe Notes

    1. *If you make it too thin, it'll be hard like flatbread, you want it about 1/3 inch so it rises and is dough-like.
    2. **Precook chicken and other meats before placing on your pizza
    3. Please note that I can't vouch for substitutions that I have not personally made. I have tested this recipe numerous times and have found following this exactly will yield in a great crispy, yet bread-y crust. If you choose to make changes, the recipe may not come out the same.
