This Almond Flour Pizza Crust is an easy low carb and gluten-free pizza option. Since my almond flour recipes have been so popular lately I thought I’d share this one with you as well. This almond flour pizza crust is based on my almond flour biscuit recipe (Gluten Free Cheddar Bay Biscuits) which is an easy gluten-free biscuit recipe.
Where to Buy Almond Flour:
So before we get started on almond flour recipes and this almond flour pizza crust, let’s talk about almond flour. Almond flour is finely ground almonds. I know a lot of people wonder how to make almond flour at home. You can make your own in a food processor, but it’s tough to get the almonds as finely ground as commercial almond flours that you can buy.
Almond flour is widely available now in many large grocery stores and specialty grocery stores. You can also find it on Amazon and Costco.

How to Make Almond Flour Pizza Crust:
Ok let’s get started on this Almond Flour Pizza Crust. Before you get started, be sure to preheat your oven so it’s ready to go when your crust is done.
Like I mentioned I based this on my almond flour biscuit recipe. In a mixing bowl, mix together the almond flour, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt until well combined.
Then stir in the cooled melted butter and eggs and stir until combined.
Press the dough on the bottom of a greased cast iron pan. I used shortening to grease the pan but you could also use oil. Make sure the dough is flat and even. I used a 10-inch cast iron pan but you could use one slightly smaller or larger.
Bake the crust at the bottom of your oven, for about 12-15 minutes or until browned around the edges. I like baking the crust toward the bottom of the oven so that the bottom is crispy.
Then remove the crust from the oven and add your favorite pizza or tomato sauce, cheese, and toppings and place back in the oven for a few minutes until cheese has melted.
Once your pizza is done, you can cut out slices using a sharp knife. You might need to use some kind of spatula, fork, etc. or something for that first piece to get out. Then the rest of the slices should come out a lot easier.
If you’d like a more soft crust, I’d suggest baking the pizza crust more in the middle of the oven and for slightly less time.
You can make this pizza any way you’d like. I like to chop up fresh herbs like basil, Italian parsley, or oregano for the top.
You can also add other dried herbs and spices to the crust itself.
Just for the record, this crust is great, but it will never compare to pizza crust with yeast and flour. You just can’t get that kind of consistency and chewiness with almond flour. Sad I know, but this Almond Flour Pizza Crust is a great substitute so don’t worry!
Mmm, now who’s craving pizza? Please tell me I’m not the only one! Be sure to check out those other almond flour recipes listed above!

Almond Flour Pizza Crust Recipe
Quick and easy Almond Flour Pizza Crust recipe that is low carb and gluten-free. Top with your favorite pizza toppings.
- 2 1/2 cups almond flour
- 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted & cooled
- 2 large eggs beaten
- pizza toppings (such as tomato sauce, cheese, etc.)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and place one oven rack towards bottom of oven. Grease a 10-inch cast iron pan with shortening or oil.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the almond flour, Italian seasoning garlic powder, and salt. Stir in the melted butter and eggs until combined.
Press dough into an even layer on the bottom of the cast iron pan.
Bake the crust at 400 degrees F for about 10-14 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
Remove crust from oven and top with your favorite pizza toppings such as tomato sauce and cheese. Return to oven for a few minutes or until cheese has melted.
SNAPPY TIPS: If you'd like a softer crust, bake in middle of oven rather than bottom. You may need to adjust baking time depending on size and type of pan so watch your crust carefully. You can use a little corn meal on the bottom of your pan as well to help prevent sticking.
SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: Instead of a 10-inch cast iron pan you can use a slightly bigger or smaller cast iron pan. You can also use a large baking sheet although I'd suggest lining the baking sheet first with parchment paper or grease well to prevent sticking.
