AIP Pizza – free of grains, dairy & nightshades!

aip paleo pizza gluten free

 

AIP Pizza made with chewy, foldable crust, nightshade-free sauce & dairy-free cheese!

 

Pizza is a hot button issue for me. After going gluten-free 6 years ago after a girl’s trip to NYC where I dove throat-first into many-a-slice-a-pizza-pie, I still mis it terribly! Pizza is my favorite food… and many of my fellow AIPers favorite food. I’m here to help fulfill your AIP Pizza dreams in anyway I can.

 

I’ve made Pesto Chicken Pizza, Garlic Lovers Spinach Pizza, Ham & Pineapple Pizza & Prosciutto and Fig Bistro Pizza for The Healing Kitchen. I’ve made Smoked Salmon Flatbread, Caramelized Onion & “Ricotta” Pizza and Meat Sauce Pizza for Enthused! Right now if you look at the homepage of my website, it’s half pizza recipes. Living life over here. 

 

What I hadn’t yet made is your traditional thin crust, bendy, foldable, drunk college style, tomato-y, cheesy pie… um without gluten, dairy, nightshades or eggs.

It kind of freaks me out to even put a recipe on the Internet for pizza that doesn’t include A SINGLE component of true NY-Style pizza. But hey – there’s millions and millions of people in America with autoimmune disease. And we can’t all eat gluten, dairy & nightshades!

Let’s be real – most gluten-free crusts leave a lot to be desired – they’re flavorless, crunchy and ruin the whole pizza experience. This crust however is based very closely on my original thin crust that you guys love so much! I’ve just added gelatin to make it more bendable but it still holds up GREAT!

 

The toppings, in my humble but accurate opinion, are necessary. Having just the “cheese” and “sauce” wasn’t enough to give me a full-on pizza vibe but adding the sliced kalamata olives, spinach and red onion took it to that level.

 

 

 

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED BEFORE YOU ASK THEM

(BUT FEEL FREE TO ASK ME ANY OTHER QUESTIONS BELOW)

 

CAN I USE ARROWROOT INSTEAD OF TAPIOCA?

Yes. That was easy. No you can’t use cassava. Nothing replaces coconut flour. No you can’t use ground unicorn balls. 

CAN I USE MY OWN SAUCE?

Of course! You can use any homemade sauce but make sure it tastes closer to tomato sauce than not! In fact, make this recipe super easy by using KC Naturals Nomato Sauce instead of the one in the recipe!

 

WAH. WHY ISN’T THE SAUCE RED?

Because I used carrots instead of tomatoes combined with some other tasty ingredients. If you want red sauce, add no more than 1/4 cup chopped red beets in step 1. It’ll change the flavor slightly but you should get your redder sauce. 

 

CAN I REPLACE THIS WITH THAT?

Yes you can replace the pumpkin with either butternut squash puree or sweet potato puree (for a sweeter sauce).

Yes you can use whatever dried Italian herbs you have on hand – basil, oregano, thyme, marjoram. I just didn’t want to go crazy on the number of ingredients since it’s a 3-part recipe. 

Yes you can use 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar in place of the cream of tartar.

Yes you can leave out the probiotic but it helps give it a cheesy flavor. Not all probiotics will be acceptable here – just the one in my recipe because it is yeast based. (See nutritional yeast suggestion below).

Yes you can add 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast to the cheese. I personally don’t tolerate it, so that’s why I used this probiotic. 

No you cannot replace the coconut flour with anything else. It is very absorbent and needed in this crust recipe.

No I don’t know how to make this low FODMAP.

And I DEFINITELY don’t know how to make this low carb. 

 

CAN I DOUBLE OR TRIPLE THIS RECIPE FOR MORE THAN 2 PEOPLE?

Yes you can double & triple this recipe for a pizza night! You can either double the crust & cheese recipe and make 1 large pie (still rolled out just as thin) OR you can make 2 separate regular-size pies. If you follow the recipe as written, NO need to double the sauce recipe. There’s enough for 2 pizzas. You will have to double the crust & cheese though!

 

CAN I MAKE AHEAD EACH COMPONENT?

Yes you can make this ahead. You can make the crust ahead, pre-bake it & freeze it. You can make the sauce ahead of time and store it in the fridge. Same with the cheese (store in fridge, not freezer). 

 

 

Okay, guys! Get your pizza on – get creative if you want to switch up the toppings. Make it your own! Use this recipe as a base for your AIP pizza dreams & let me know what you do!

 

+ yes it’s a bit of a time-consuming pizza (that’s what happens when you even have to make your own cheese!) but just make it a fun family or weeknight activity!

This Smoked Salmon Flatbread reminds me of a girls trip to NYC I took several years ago (my last hoorah with gluten, in fact!) We grabbed bagels & lox and ate them while walking down the street chatting about our fun evening prior. Now when I make this flatbread pizza, I’m reminded of that awesome trip & those equally awesome friends.

Caramelized Onion & “Ricotta” Pizza (from Enthused: 80+ allergy-friendly recipes you want to eat!)

 

 

 

Dairy-free, grain-free Caramelized Onion & “Ricotta” Pizza – from my new ebook Enthused!

 

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I’ve posted about this new AIP-friendly pizza recipe MANY times this month! It is STELLAR. One of my favorite recipes I’ve ever created (I say that a lot, but I swear I mean it every time!)

 

The combination of a thin, chewy & crispy-edged pizza crust, sweet caramelized onions, dairy-free “ricotta”, garlic, truffle salt & thyme… hello flavor explosion! We eat a lot of nourishing meals on our healing diets, but sometimes (hmmm, once a week at least) I need a “special” meal that falls outside my daily norm.

 

If you’ve been eating AIP for sometime, I’m sure you’ve tried my pizza crust recipe. If not, GET ON IT. I wasn’t going to reinvent the wheel with my crust recipe… it’s the same one you’ll find in my Pesto Chicken Pizza but the toppings make all the difference.

 

You’ve probably hard of “ricotta” made from cashews for a vegan cheese alternative, but have you tried one made from coconut? It’s shockingly convincing when you combine coconut butter, coconut milk and some extra-flavorful truffle salt and then broil it.

 

The “ricotta” gets melty and bubbly-brown and adds a rich, salty taste to the naturally sweet caramelized onions. Finished with fresh garlic and thyme to round out this classic restaurant-style pizza.
