Pizza! Pizza! Pizza! Pizza Dough

pizza pizza pizza paleo pizza

Wow so what is all this craze still happening about minecraft??  I must be the only person in the world that just can not understand what is up with this pixelated game.  Both my kids love to play it and I am trying to understand why lol.  My 12 year old can literally sit down and not move for hours building this crazy world that has glass houses in it that she thinks are cool.  When I casually ask her why build a house out of glass, what if I just go throw a rock at it and break it.  Apparently my logical view of this game was utterly wrong!  I was quickly corrected with no you can’t do that, you can’t break it and you can’t throw a rock at it.  It was at that point that I realized that me and minecraft will never get along lol.

Ok so that is the end of my rant on kids video games.  Today I bring to you an awesome pizza that we made tonight for dinner.  I am going to first tell you that the dough is completely paleo friendly and for the topping I just the left over BBQ chicken (I will post that another day) that we made in the crockpot and ate for dinner last night.  So my side of the pizza was completely paleo friendly my wife added some cheese on her side on top of the chicken and added a couple pieces of pineapple and crispy bacon.  So she technically had a Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Pizza.  My kids simply had a cheese pizza, both pizza’s were made out of this awesome dough.

My wife found this on http://www.paleospirit.com so all credit to her she is amazing and if you simply read about her on the site between the spiritual side and recipes really good stuff on there.

Pizza! Pizza! Pizza! Pizza Dough


  • 1 cup tapioca flour (starch) (plus more for rolling out dough)
  • ⅓ cup + 2-3 tablespoons coconut flour, separated
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup warm water
  • 1 large egg, whisked


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F
  2. Combine the tapioca flour (you can substitute arrowroot flour/starch), salt and ⅓ cup coconut flour in a medium bowl. Mix well.
  3. Pour in oil and warm water and stir. Add the whisked egg and continue mixing until well combined.
  4. Add two-three more tablespoons of coconut flour – one tablespoon at a time – until the mixture is a soft but somewhat sticky dough.
  5. Turn out the dough onto a surface sprinkled with tapioca flour and knead it gently until it is in a manageable ball that does not stick to your hands.
  6. Place the pizza dough ball onto a sheet of parchment paper. Use a tapioca floured rolling pin to carefully roll out the dough until it is fairly thin. (I generally make a 12 inch pizza). You may end up using a few more tablespoons of tapioca during this process but be careful not to handle the dough too much so it doesn’t get too dense.
  7. Place rolled-out dough (still on parchment paper) into preheated oven onto a hot pizza stone or a sheet pan.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes, depending on how “done” the crust should be, BEFORE putting on toppings.
