Arrowroot Powder Pizza Crust Recipe
Most people who are paleo will tell you that at some point or another, they just really miss pizza. We’re no exception to this rule. Finding a good paleo pizza recipe, however, can be tough. It’s a lot of trial and error, and sadly, some not so good dinners along the way.

Well, I happened upon this recipe from Paleo Spirit. I don’t have, and have never actually used Tapioca Starch, so I substituted arrowroot powder. I have heard that the two can be substituted for one another.
I also always add some Italian seasoning (oregano, basil, thyme, and a little rosemary) to my pizza crusts. I add the dried herbs on top of whatever liquid the recipe calls for. This refreshes the herbs so to speak and makes them a bit more flavorful. Here is a picture of the cooked crust.
For the toppings
I then topped it with some home-made pizza sauce, cheese (we eat dairy) and some pepperoni. It turned out to be really tasty. We also love to load this pizza up with fresh vegetables, or even some pineapple. This crust, since it is a bit more like a traditional pizza crust can hold more toppings that other paleo pizza crust recipes that I have tried.
- 1 cup arrowroot powder
- 1/3 cup + 2-3 TBSP coconut flour, separated
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 TBSP dried Italian seasoning
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1 large egg, whisked
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F
- Combine the arrowroot powder, salt, Italian seasonings, and 1/3 cup coconut flour in a bowl. Mix well
- Pour in oil and warm water. Stir Add the whisked egg and mix until well combined
- Slowly add 2-3 TBSP more of coconut flour, one at a time, until the mixture is a somewhat sticky dough
- Put dough on a surface sprinkled with arrowroot powder and gently need it until it becomes a manageable ball that doesn't stick to your hands
- Place the ball on a sheet of parchment paper and using a rolling-pin that has been dusted with arrowroot powder, roll the dough into a 1/4 inch thick crust.
- Place the dough, still on the parchment paper onto a pizza stone and bake for 12-15 minutes
- Remove the pizza crust from the oven, add toppings and cook for a few more minutes until the toppings are done
