Gluten Free Paleo/Keto Pizza

Gluten Free

So, last month I shared with you that I was intimidated by the thought of making gluten-free pizza. Now, however, I am turning them out weekly.  Why?  What changed?

Well, I figured out that my goal wasn’t to try to make a gluten-free pizza that tastes exactly like regular pizza.  It was to just make a really, really good gluten-free pizza.  Thats it.

And it’s just a bonus for some of you that this pizza is Paleo and maybe Keto worthy as well, the crust is mainly almond flour, mozzarella cheese, an egg and some spices.  Ingredients you may already have in your kitchen right now, I did.

I have to admit, there is nothing better than scratching this one off the list, while the kitchen smells so heavenly of pizza. 

Paleo Keto Pizza

Paleo/Keto Pizza

Paleo/Keto Pizza


  • 2 cups (8oz) shredded mozzarella cheese, I used full fat
  • 1/4 shredded parmesan cheese, you could also use grated
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp ground golden flax seeds
  • 3 tablespoons cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano, or any other herbs you like
  • Toppings:
  • Pizza sauce
  • More mozzarella and any vegetables or meats you like.
  • I used tomato sauce, shredded mozzarella, thinly sliced shallots, broccoli, tiny yellow grape tomatoes halved, and a sprinkle of finely shredded parmesan cheese.


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Add shredded mozzarella to micro-safe bowl and heat on 30 second intervals until cheese is just melted.
  3. Stir in the parmesan, almond flour, flax, cream cheese, egg and spices until well combined.
  4. Form into a ball.
  5. Line a pizza or sheet pan with parchment paper, place dough in middle, working with your hands flatten dough from middle to outer edges working your way around the dough in a circle.
  6. It takes a bit of time to get it really thin, your hands may stick to the dough initially, if so rub a bit of olive oil on them and continue to work the dough.
  7. Once you have the thickness you want, I worked it until it was as thin as I could achieve without any holes showing through to the parchment.
  8. Mine measured about 12 inches in diameter, perfect for two for dinner.
  9. Now slide into the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  10. Carefully flip over, and bake for an additional 3-4 mins.
  11. Remove from oven, discard parchment paper, spray or lightly brush top of pizza with olive oil
  12. Flip over and add pizza sauce, cheese and any topping you want.
  13. Bake again for 3-5 mins, or until topping heated through and cheese melted.

Spatchcocked Chicken with Fingerlings and Brussels Sprouts

Spatchcocked Chicken

Okay, I have been debating whether I should share this Spatchcocked Chicken recipe with you. Not because it’s too complicated to make — just the opposite. And, not because it contains pricey or hard to find ingredients — geez it’s just a whole, albeit organic, chicken with a few fingerling potatoes and a handful of Brussels… Continue reading

Crispy Quinoa Pizza

Quinoa Pizza

Most of you know that I don’t usually post recipes that are long on ingredients, time-consuming or laborious. This pizza does not fall into those categories per se, it just requires time, 6-8 hours specifically.  Yep, that might be a deal breaker, I know.  But, it is really worth it. If you are craving shattering… Continue reading

Spiced Rum and Orange Cheesecake with a Warm Rum Sauce

Spice rum cheesecake

About once a year my husband invites some of his co-workers over for dinner, to discuss their upcoming business endeavors.  This time it was six men, my husband and myself. I had weeks of notice, so I wasn’t really worried about the menu.  With that many men (none vegetarian) naturally, I veered to steak.  Specifically,… Continue reading

Crispy Baby Artichokes

Crispy Artichokes

While I sometimes think I possess the courage and ability to conquer almost any recipe that comes my way, I must confess I was a tad bit intimidated to tackle artichokes. For me, they fell into the same category as homemade croissants, or a souffle.  Technically, I could make them, but, I just wasn’t interested.  Lately… Continue reading
