How to make AIP Pizza Crust

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Using a food processor, add the flour, water, flax meal, psyllium husk, olive oil, maple syrup, vinegar, baking powder, and salt. Blend until smooth. The texture will be sticky and soft.

Scoop out and transfer the dough to a floured piece of parchment paper that is about 15-inches square. You will need a bit more flour sprinkled on top to roll it out with a rolling pin.

Roll the pizza dough into a 15-inch circle.

Transfer the dough to the pizza pan: Using a pizza pan, place it upside down over the prepared dough. Place your hand under the parchment paper and carefully flip the dough and pan over.

Slowly pull up the parchment paper away from the dough.

Fold over the edges of the pizza dough to form a crust.

Bake for 10 minutes. Add the roasted butternut squash sauce or any favorite toppings to the prebaked crust and bake for 6 minutes more.

Butternut squash sauce

This AIP pizza sauce is made of roasted vegetables and infused with sage oil and elevates the pizza crust. It is a nightshade-free sauce for pizza and can be prepared in advance, or top this AIP pizza with any favorite marinara sauce, butternut squash sauce, and pizza toppings like caramelized onions, and dairy-free cheese. The sauce recipe is also posted here.

Heat the sage leaves, coconut oil, and olive in a small saucepan over heat for a couple of minutes until fragrant then turn the heat off and remove it from the heat to cool. Roast the vegetables then pulse them in a blender until smooth with the homemade sage oil.

Egg in pizza dough

Egg is an important ingredient in baked goods that helps bind ingredients together. But there are other alternatives that do work without eggs such as flax seed paste, flax meal, an egg replacer, tapioca, psyllium husk, and banana. But nobody wants their pizza tasting like a banana… lol!

In place of egg (and xanthan gum which is helpful in gluten-free baking) we use a combination of flax meal and psyllium husk mixed with plenty of water because those ingredients absorb liquid quickly. The result is a fluffy AIP pizza without yeast and egg and once baked, this crust holds its shape and is soft and moist.
