Almond Flour Pizza (Low Carb and Gluten Free)

Yummy! Low Carb and Gluten Free goodness!

If I told you that this was exactly the same as a doughy pizza, I would be lying.  If I said that this was the best low carb and gluten free alternative I have made so I would be 100% truthful.   This is so far, my favourite low carb and gluten free pizza base and was met with happy munching from my tasters.   Gorgeously low carb and gluten free too!  Very easy to make…who needs to pound out dough when you can whip up a lovely pizza like this. 

I buy big bags of almond flour from Amazon but you could easily just grind up almonds in a food processor or you may be lucky enough to purchase “ground almonds” in your supermarket.  They are the same thing really.


2 cups Almond Flour

2 eggs, beaten

3 Tblspns Olive oil

1/4 tspn baking soda

3 tblspns oregano

1/2 tspn garlic powder (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F degrees.
  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl together to make a dough.  Form into a ball.
  • Line a baking sheet or pizza pan with greased proof or parchment paper.  Spread out the dough mixture across the paper.  It will be sticky, so I find having damp hands helped.

  • Bake the crust for 10 – 15 minutes until lightly golden.Remove from the oven and spread over your toppings.  Place back in the oven and cook for a further 15 – 20 minutes.
  • Slice, eat and enjoy!
Have a couple of slices or two…


  1. Oh wow, finally a simple recipe that doesn’t include an entire speciality store’s worth of ingredients! How would you describe the texture? Also, about how big of a crust does this make?

    Thanks!! I can’t wait to try it out.


    • Hi Sara. Thanks for stopping by and glad you like the recipe. I would describe the texture as slightly doughy..and I make a pizza about 8 inches wide with this. Let me know how you get on with it!


  2. Hi Sara. We just made it for lunch! Very yummy taste. We love your bread too. However, substitute Camelina oil for Olive oil (350 smoke point) due to the smoke point (475) and is super! However, I failed to read the instructions and turned out really gooey. Oops! Read it again. Didn’t bake it FIRST! So, with my words of wisdom, BAKE before adding the toppings! :) We loved the taste and will definitely fill our cravings for pizza when needed. Thanks Sara! Where do you get all these delicious fine recipes? Do you just experiment until you get it? Which recipe is your all time favorite? We’ll keep trying them all! Yum Yum Yum!!!
