This gluten free & vegan pizza crust is soft on the inside with a crispy crust and made with only a few simple ingredients!
I’m not going to lie, this is not your typical pizza crust. But it IS both vegan and gluten free and has such a delicious flavor thanks to the almond flour. I wanted a crust that didn’t require any yeast, and doing so without gluten or eggs is tough! But here we are. This gluten free and vegan pizza crust is both easy and delicious. It’s perfect for a weeknight meal and can be made in a variety of ways.
Most almond flour pizza crusts call for egg. But I wanted this to be vegan, so instead we’ll be using psyllium husk powder. The psyllium will work as a glue to bind all of the ingredients together so the crust actually holds up! You can probably try using a tablespoon of ground flaxseed instead. However, I have not tried this myself and can’t guarantee it will work!
To make the crust, we’ll start by adding the dry ingredients to a bowl and mix until well incorporated. Then, you’ll add in the wet ingredients (olive oil, water, and apple cider vinegar) and mix until you get a dough. Next, use your hands or a rolling pin to form the dough into a circle about 1/4 inch thick. The crust will rise very slightly while it bakes, but not much.
Then, you’ll bake it for 10 minutes, top with sauce veggies, dairy free cheese, whatever tickles your fancy. I’ve included a pesto recipe in this post, but regular sauce would be delicious as well! I topped mine with pesto, zucchini, radishes, tomatoes, and my favorite dairy free mozzarella by the brand Miyoko’s.
