Homemade Healthy Pizza Crust

by Kelly M

If the title of this recipe doesn’t make you smile when you pull it up, I don’t know what will.

It’s mid-week. I get it. A random page you pull up on the internet may not make you break into a happy dance. Unless you’re reading this on a Friday, in which case… we need to talk.

So let me break this down for you: Pizza. HEALTHY. S-c-r-u-m-p-t-i-o-u-s.

I am not sure how to express the magnitude of my excitement over the concept of this healthy pizza. HALF of the ENTIRE PIE is only 130 calories. (What? All the cool cats use large font for EMPHASIS.) So you know what that means? A slice (1/8 of the pie) is only about 32 calories. A 32 CALORIE PIZZA SLICE?!? (Too much BIG font?) Amazeballs.

Perhaps the root of my fangirl-like attitude toward this recipe is my childhood obsession with Pizza Hut cheese stuffed crust pizza. Now before you go off and be all jugdgy, may I remind you that stuffed crust pizza is bread. topped with cheese. stuffed with more cheese. Cheese+ carb+ more carb = happy taste buds. (And bigger pants, but you don’t have to deal with that until the next morning.)

Another wonderful thing about this recipe that you can do whatever the heck you want with it. Eat it plain? Awesome. Top it with barbecue sauce? I like the way you think. Sprinkle on cheese? Duh. Take a vegan route? Cool! Just whip up the dough and jazz it up with whatever toppings your hungry heart desires.

You may never set foot in a Pizza Hut ever again. Trust me, after one taste, you’ll see why.

Homemade Healthy Pizza Crust


  • 3 eggs (or 1.5 Tablespoons egg replacer + 6 Tablespoon water)
  • 1 cup almond milk (I bet coconut milk or coconut-almond milk would be lovely.)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon garlic powder (depending on how much you like garlic)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. In a medium large bowl, stir together all ingredients until completely combined. Spread the batter to a uniform thickness onto a parchment lined pizza pan or baking sheet. Bake in the oven at 375F for 12-20 minutes, remove from oven, and top with your toppings of choice. Remember that this pizza crust is pretty delicate, so do not put too many topping on the crust or it will crumble and break. Bake the topped pizza crust for 5-10 more minutes, depending on your toppings, and let cool for at least 15 minutes. If you don't let it cool, it will break, so letting it sit is very important.

Love this recipe! I miss pizza since being gluten free so this is a great swap!


2 Brittany @ GOtheXtraMile September 26, 2012 at 6:17 am

You, my friend, are a pure genius. :)


3 Jess @ JessieBear What Will You Wear September 26, 2012 at 6:25 am

This looks awesome! I kind of like that you have to let it sit for a while, because I tend to burn my tongue on food all the time.. haha


4 Kelly M September 28, 2012 at 11:18 pm

Haha. Thank you! We must be two peas in a pod. ;)


5 kim@hungryhealthygirl September 27, 2012 at 4:04 am

Love, love, love this recipe!! It’s Paleo friendly…..can’t wait to give it a try!


6 Kelly December 3, 2012 at 1:49 pm

Hi, I love this recipe!. Do you know where I can find a low carb/grain free version of pizza rolls recipe?.


7 Kelly M December 7, 2012 at 9:09 am

What a great idea! I’ll have to whip up some pizza rolls and get a recipe to you stat!


8 Liz January 18, 2013 at 6:29 pm

Did you make this using eggs or egg replacer?


9 Kelly M January 18, 2013 at 11:01 pm

Hi Liz! I’ve successfully made this recipe using both egg whites and egg replacer.


10 Catherine February 15, 2013 at 1:45 pm

Hey! I am super excited to try this and was wondering if you think it would work with regular flour instead of coconut flour? Don’t want to wait to try it :)


11 Kelly M February 18, 2013 at 7:59 pm

Hi Catherine! Unfortunately, no, you can’t use regular flour if you want the recipe to work properly. You can buy coconut flour online at places like iherb.com, and it can be on your doorstep in a few days! Hope this helps!


12 Jenna April 4, 2013 at 9:18 am

Your recipe says 3 eggs, but in one of your comments you said you have tried it using “both egg whites and egg replacer.” So, just to clarify, is it 3 whole eggs or egg whites? Thanks!!


13 Kelly M May 3, 2013 at 10:47 pm

Yes! Sorry for the confusion. I meant that I had tried both variations of the recipe. It is three whole eggs OR 1.5 Tablespoons egg replacer + 6 Tablespoon water. Hope this helps!


14 kiana June 22, 2013 at 12:38 pm

I have been making this style of “pizza crust” for a while. almost identical but i always add a little oregano. super delish. great minds think alike i suppose ;)

its so good that i have eaten it without any toppings on before. woopsy…


15 Kelly M June 25, 2013 at 8:58 am

Haha. We must be related! United in pizza.


16 Lisa July 5, 2013 at 5:31 am

I’m wondering if the crust could be frozen once it’s cooked half way. Have you tried freezing it? I would love to make a dozen of these to have ready to just top and bake.


17 Kelly M July 10, 2013 at 10:21 am

I don’t see why freezing it would work! Hmm. But to freeze before or after cooking… I would go with before.

Did anybody else find this VERY dry? Had this not been so dry it would have been pretty good. I could barely even swallow it.


19 Karen September 2, 2013 at 8:57 am

This looks really good but I don’t know where you came up with the calories for this? The calories for just the whole crust without any toppings is 462 calories so that would mean that half the crust without anything on it would be 223 calories and I am calculating that on unsweetened almond milk. Am I missing something here? How can 1/2 the pizza be 130 calories?


20 Kelly M June 17, 2014 at 3:45 pm

Hi Karen! So sorry about the confusion. Here is a post on how I calculate calories.


21 Anna October 1, 2013 at 8:35 pm

I did the math and it came out 495 calories/pie… 3 eggs 240 cal+1 cup almond milk 45 cal+half cup coconut flour 210 cal… Am I doing something wrong???


22 Anna October 1, 2013 at 8:40 pm

Or you did the calculations using the calories in the egg replacer, not in the the eggs…


23 Kelly M November 2, 2013 at 6:22 pm

Sorry about the confusion! I did use egg replacer. Also, here is a post on how I calculate calories. Hope this helps!


24 Wiebke October 20, 2013 at 8:01 am

Wow, just discovered your blog on Friday and have been reading around here ever since. Already tried your pan-pizza and cinnamon rolls over the weekend (and no, I was too impatient to role the dough properly but it still tasted good).
Greetings from Finland :)


25 Kelly M October 27, 2013 at 2:20 pm

Welcome aboard! (Wow, Finland!)


26 josh December 29, 2013 at 12:08 pm

i think 1/2 cup of coconut flour contains about 480 calories. 3 eggs is about 200 calories total. so, isnt this pizza 680 calories before toppings?


27 josh December 29, 2013 at 12:30 pm

oops. math. flour 240 + eggs 200 + coconut milk 30 = 470ish.

before toppings.

i saw your post on calorie counting carbs and fiber. is it really a 1:1 ratio?


28 Kelly M January 4, 2014 at 10:18 pm

Hi Josh! Very good questions. Actually, coconut flour only has about 160 calories per 1/2 cup and I calculated the calories with egg replacer. As for the fiber and the carbs, you only subtract the amount of calories for the fiber (4 x the number of fiber grams). Hope this helps!


29 Jennifer January 7, 2014 at 11:55 am

1/2 c of bobs red mill coconut flour is 60 cal per 2 tablespoons, 8 tablespoons in 1/2 c so that’s 240 cal not 160
