Everyone loves pizza, and everyone will love this super easy 3-step gluten-free pizza!

I recently decided to go “gluten-free” and “dairy-free”, and it has not been easy. Giving up delicious things like pizza, bread and butter, chocolate etc.. has been hard to say the least. So when I (successfully) made a gluten-free and dairy-free pizza – it was heaven.

So here goes!

Ingredients

  • 2.5 cups of almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • Toppings – whatever you would like to put atop of your pizza!

Method

1. Combine ingredients.

You can do this with a food processor, or if you don’t have one (which I don’t) you can burn some calories mixing it up yourself. You will be surprised by how easy it comes together.

2. Bake!

Roll out the dough onto wax proof paper, about 1/2 a cm thick. I used my hand to squish it around, but if you have a rolling pin then lay a sheet of wax paper on top and then roll. Stroke with a little olive oil and put in the oven to “parbake” for 8 minutes at 180 Celsius.

3. Bake again!

Take out the base and add your toppings! Then put it back in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes as 200 Celsius.

And then eat it!

Dairy-free?

OK so it’s pretty obvious how I made the base dairy-free, but how did I make my topping dairy-free? Well that was easy too – I found a dairy-free cheese substitute at Super Pola supermarket in Bavaro, and it worked perfectly. Although I really doubt that this cheese substitute can be considered “healthy”, if you’re dairy-free, it’s not bad for a one-off.

NOTE! This pizza is made using almond flour, which in addition to being pretty pricey is also very calorific! If you would normally eat half a pizza, I recommend eating just a 1/4 of this pizza – it is surprisingly filling.
