Paleo Eggplant Pizza Crust [VIDEO]

If you are looking for a pizza crust that is hearty, delicious, and filled with veggies, this Paleo Eggplant Pizza Crust is for you. My traditional pizza crust  is my go-to when I am craving a traditional thin-crust pizza dough, but I can’t get enough of this veggie packed version!

Paleo Eggplant Pizza Crust

I love pizza. I mean, I REALLY love pizza. I personally don’t go for the store-bought gluten-free pizza crusts, or store-bought gluten-free cookies, crackers, etc. for that matter. I
often don’t find these things to be healthier then the regular options, just allergy-friendly. So, I opt to invent.

Making a crust that’s gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, and healthy? That’s delicious? I’ll take two, please! I have made tons of pizza crusts; from flatbread to cauliflower-based and this one takes the cake with the best reviews in my house!

  1. Love the ingredient list and the pizza looks just beautiful!

  2. […] want to ruin your healthy eating habits, reach for a slice (or the whole pie) of Lexi’s paleo pizza. She uses eggplant to make a crust and fresh veggies as toppings. Try this recipe with sliced grass […]

  3. Marie says:

    This might be a little off topic but those meatballs look amazing! Do you have a recipe for them?

  4. Dar James says:

    I’m not sure how I found your web site but I’m so glad I did! I made this pizza last night and it got high marks all around at my house, even from the teenager who decidedly HATES eggplant. My market was out of almond flour so I used amaranth and I cooked on a stone in a 425 oven which seemed to make it less wet. I will be adding this to my regular rotation! Thank you so, so much.

  5. Ashlynn says:

    Im allergic to eggs, could I replace the eggs with something?

  6. Suzi says:

    Wow, such a good recipe! Thanks for sharing! My husband loved it so much I made it again the next night. I like the tip to broil it as well, makes it even tastier. Thanks Lexi!

  7. Gina says:

    Has anyone attempted to freeze the crust to save time on future dinners?

  8. Holly says:

    Lexi, I am so happy I stumbled upon your blog. Every single recipe I have tried is incredible. You’re a genius! This pizza crust was so amazing – and I can’t wait to make it again and again. Thanks again for these fabulous recipes – you will have to write a cook book and start a cooking show soon! I am a huge fan!

  9. Aistė says:

    Made it today and absolutely loved it! I can finally eat pizza! Thank you thank you thank you! <3

  10. Kristy says:

    Can I ask how many slices (average) you get out of this recipe?

  11. Ashley says:

    I don’t have almond flour or coconut flour on hand… Only all purpose and whole wheat. Can I use either of those in substitution for the almond or coconut flour? I understand it will no longer be Paleo… I’m not Paleo but I just love the idea of eggplant pizza crust 🙂

  12. Lynn Neal says:

    Can you tell me how you grated the eggplant? With a box grater? Food processor?

  13. Lisa says:

    I just found your blog through a pin on Pinterest. SO AWESOME!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE pizza also and have been dying to try an eggplant crust. I’ve done a cauliflower crust, a spinach crust. My go-to is an almond flour crust but that has can significantly raise the calories. I’m excited to try this. Thanks for your beautiful contributions!!

  14. Ken says:

    My daughter has an egg allergy. What can I use as a substitute?

  15. Bethany says:

    I made this recipe for the first time today. The flavors were great. However, I had never cooked with eggplant before and my pizza ended up not holding together very well. My guess is that I did not properly remove the water from the eggplant. Could it have been anything else you think?

  16. Liana says:

    Cooking this right now ! 🙂 how many servings does the pizza yield ?

  17. charlene says:

    Awesome eggplant pizza crust, I didn’t have to use much almond flour, replaced ground flax seed with arrowroot starch 🙂

  18. Jackie says:

    Hi, love your website. I was wondering what the carb count is on this crust? Thanks!

  19. kris says:

    Can you substitute the coconut flour for something else?

  20. Jennifer says:

    Could you please include a calorie/carb count on this? Thank you 🙂

  21. Donna says:

    Sooo good! Wasn’t sure what to expect but we topped it with chicken, zucchini , sundried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, Kalamata olives, mozzarella and goats cheese… was divine!!

    This recipe looks great! However, we do not use nuts in our house due to a life threatening tree nut allergy…so is there something I can use to replace the almond flour that will be just as good?
    Thanks!

  24. VH says:

    Had my doubts, but this was really good! Followed the crust recipe exactly except used regular flour and put it on a stone in the oven. Put ricotta, tomatoes, mozzarella and pesto on top. Delicious! Great way to use some eggplant.

    I wasn’t sure about this BUT it was excellent. I’m buying more eggplant tomorrow and having friends over for the 2nd version. My only issue was the crust took 30 minutes on the first side and 20 on the second side to.make it dry enough to add the toppings. I’m thinking I didn’t dry the eggplant enough or mixing it in a food processor maybe made it too fine. But in the end it was so good my husband had three pieces and he’s a die hard NJ pizza guy.

    Super easy, but not a fan of the flex seed . Can I double the coconut flour ?

      Coconut flour is too absorbent and wouldn’t be able to be swapped in exactly in the same amount as the flax seed. If you experiment though, let us know how it goes! -Kelli
