Meat Lovers Pizza



If you’re grain or gluten-free, you will no longer miss pizza once you make this grain-free crust. I choose to use three different flours for this crust to give it the complexity that regular crusts have, and to avoid the sweet flavor that most almond or coconut crusts have.

You may think it’s overkill or not worth the time, but I assure you it is. Have you ever seen a gluten-free bread or crust recipe that uses only rice flour? Or is made just from potato starch? Probably not. And that is because without the use of an all purpose flour, it’s best to combine different flours so they can all lend their various benefits to the finished product. They each have their own properties and work cohesively; coconut – helps to prevent soggy bread and makes the crust sturdy, almond- lends some healthy fat and a bit of sweetness, and cashews- makes the crust a little lighter and fluffier and balances out the flavor.

You can top this crust with whatever your heart desires, but we topped this one with heaps of US Wellness Meat’s salami, italian sausage, sugar-free bacon, and shredded raw milk cheese.

Meat Lovers Pizza

AUTHOR: Danielle Walker - AgainstAllGrain.com




  • ¾ cup whole raw cashews (or 1 cup cashew flour)
  • 3 tablespoons almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • dash teaspoon garlic granules
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2½ tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the cashews until a fine flour has formed.
  3. Add in the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, salt, and garlic granules, then process the mixture for 30 seconds.
  4. Add the eggs, almond milk, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, and water and process for another 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and pulse a few more times until you have a very smooth dough.
  5. Add the parsley and basil, and pulse two more times to roughly chop and incorporate the herbs.
  6. Let the dough rest for 2 minutes to let the coconut flour absorb some of the liquid. *It is a fairly wet dough, so don’t be alarmed that it doesn’t come together into a dense ball like most doughs.
  7. Sprinkle a piece of parchment paper with a little almond flour, then turn the dough out onto the counter. Sprinkle a little more flour on the top of the ball of dough, then place another piece of parchment on top.
  8. Use your hands to flatten the ball into a disc, then lightly roll out the dough into a circle that is 1/4 inch thick.
  9. Remove the top piece of parchment and carefully by gently tugging from one corner. Slide the other piece with the crust onto a pizza pan. *If you can’t remove the parchment without taking half of the dough with it, just bake the crust with the top piece intact. You can remove it once the crust has baked and before you add the toppings.
  10. Bake the crust for 12 minutes, or until it has puffed up and is golden brown around the edges.
  11. Top with marinara sauce, cheese, salami, sausage, bacon, mushrooms and olives and bake for another 10-15 minutes.

    Do you have any suggestions for a coconut flour substitute, I have a coconut sensitivity?

    • Chrystal

      I also have a coconut sensitivity and would love to know a good substitute – I tried one the other day for an AAG recipe, and it was not good 😐

    Curious how the ¾ cup USWM Raw Mozzarella Cheese, shredded works out for no lactose folks. I am lactose intolerant in addition to being gluten sensitive. Does this cheese work for people like me?

    • Danielle P

      I would use Daiya! It is soy , dairy and gluten free and comes in shreds :)

  • Kat

    Neil, you can use Daiya Shredded Dairy-Free Mozzarella. It melts and browns, just watch time carefully.

    OK, Thanks!

    I just made this pizza but instead of cashew flour, I used almond. I didn’t have the cashews in the pantry and I was too lazy to go to the store. I used egg replacer (tapioca starch) and oregano and basil in the dough. It came out AMAZINGLY. I was so impressed!! I topped it with daiya mozzarella instead of real cheese. Perfection!
