Coconut Flour Crust Pizza

27 June 2016

As you all know by now, I love making traditionally unhealthy meals, and transforming them into gorgeously fresh and healthy alternatives by applying some quick and simple ingredient swaps. So yes we all know about cauliflower pizza bases…been there done that right!? But what about coconut crust pizza? Hmmm sound interesting? Its delicious too might I add. Coconut flour has many health benefits too! Packed with loads of fibre, protein, and iron, and its brilliant for your immune and nervous systems, your thyroid, your bones, and even your skin. Yes please!

Makes 1 large Pizza | Ready in 40 mins



80g coconut flour

1 tbsp mixed herbs

pinch pink salt


3 free range organic eggs

2 tbsp. coconut cream


1 tbsp. olive oil

½ red onion, finely chopped

1 clove garlic

200g cherry tomatoes sliced

¼ cup water

3 tbsp. water


1 punnet steamed asparagus spears
½ cup thinly sliced zucchini rounds – lightly steamed

Handful of fresh basil leaves
Handful of fresh Parsley

4 tbsp. homemade vegan pesto (see recipe here)
Lemon zest

½ avocado sliced


Pre-heat oven to 180 °C

Step 1: Prepare Base

To make the base weigh out the coconut flour, salt, mixed dried herbs and pepper. In a separate bowl beat the eggs. Add the eggs to the flour mixture and once combined add coconut cream

Step 2: Cook Crust

Line a tray with baking paper and smear a tbsp. of oil over the paper to make sure it doesn’t stick. Push the dough down onto the baking tray with your fingers. Keep pushing the dough towards the edges to make a round or oval shape. It should be about 3-5mm thick. Put into the oven for 15 minutes or until golden.

Step 3: Prepare Tomato Sauce

While dough is in the oven make your tomato sauce. In a frying pan add olive oil, red onion and garlic and sauté on a medium heat for 2 minutes. Next add 3 tbsp. of water and continue to sauté until the water is absorbed. Add the tomatoes and a further ¼ cup of water and leave to reduce for 15 minutes stirring occasionally. Take off the heat when the tomatoes have broken down and it is a nice thick sauce.

Step 4: Add Toppings

Remove the pizza base out the oven and spoon the tomato sauce over the top. Then add zucchini, asparagus spears, and avo as desired, top with generous amounts of pesto and finish of with fresh herbs.  

Serve with a sprinkle of herbs, lemon zest and cracked pepper.
