So who said you have to say good bye to pizza on GAPS?? Its just one of those foods you thought you would have to give up, but really it is completely GAPS legal. This is a life saver and yummy too! i do not do so well with coconut flour yet but the rest of my family does. They all gave up flour in the house because i was having air borne reactions to flour. I always feel bad when they are craving pizza- especially because the boxed gluten free crusts look gross i have to admit( or at least the ones we got). My mom and sister are still on GAPs at different stages, but they can both have coconut flour. We just have to get a little creative with cheese for my sister- maybe i should try cashew cheese? for now i just cut it up like bread sticks and she dips in in pizza sauce. When i make it for my mom, the rest of my non GAPS family eats it too and LOVES it. you can get so creative with this basic recipe it can be used as a GAPS bread. just spread it on the pan like a square. It is kind of like flat bread that way and would make a great grilled cheese, bread for french toast, or just for a sandwich! but this recipe is specifically for pizza crust. have a fun pizza night!
this recipe makes two 9″ round crusts or one 16×10″ crust on a baking sheet
3 pastured egg yolks
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 cup coconut milk/ organic whole milk
1 tsp onion powder
0. (forgot to add this step- so it is number 0.!!) preheat oven to 375
1. mix all in a bowl with a wish until no clumps are visible. let the batter sit for a few minutes until the coconut flour get all absorbed. it will make a spreadable pastry dough.
2. spread on a cookie sheet on top of parchment paper (you choose the thickness for a crunchier crust make it thinner)- i use a spatula for this
3. Bake at 375 for 25-30 min until golden brown on bottom you can bake it a little longer to make it crustier
4. slide the parchment paper out from underneath or if you are feeling brave flip it( this is easier with the smaller crusts)- i do this by flipping it onto another cookie sheet. put sauce, cheese, and toppings on and cook for an additional 10 min until cheese is melted. (or just cut and serve bread stick style!)
5. if you split the batter in half and make two crusts or double the recipe, bake it like normal and the freeze it!
i hope this makes you pizza craving happy :)
