Grain-Free Zucchini Pizza Crust (Vegan, Paleo, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free)

When I was a kid, my parents took my sister and I to Pizza Hut.

A lot.

Yes Amie ate Pizza Hut and somehow I survived.

This was back in the 80’s and I’m sure that those pizzas were a huge part of my gut issues. Yum, right?

Somewhere in between the mini pies that I devoured as a kid and my 25th birthday, my body shut down and I couldn’t digest anything. Like anything. You can read all about my story of how I’ve been healing my gut and my body throughout the last decade on my blog as well as in my book-and if you haven’t had a chance to check out my new cookbook, Eating Clean: The 21-Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflammation and Reset Your Body, you can order it and you’ll get 6 Free Exclusive Recipes that are NOT in my cookbook!

There are a TON of flour-free pizza crust recipes in this cookbook! No gluten-free flours and no all-purpose flours in this book. It’s the real deal and you’re going to LOVE all my pizza crusts.

Now, onto this zucchini crust that’s going to be on your menu every Friday night.  I surely know it’s on mine.

Or was that just an 80’s thing to do? Friday night pizza nights…did you have those in your house in the 80’s too or were we the only crazy family doing this?

Grain-Free Zucchini Pizza Crust (Vegan, Paleo, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free)

This pizza crust is fabulous.

It can also be served as a flatbread (flatten it to be about 1/8 inch thickness) to be served with dips like hummus, if you’d prefer that. But I like to call it a pizza crust ’cause I’m fancy like that.

If you want to make this crust a bit thicker (about 1/4 inch), I recommend serving it with sauce and a nut cheese as a pizza.

Either way you serve it, you’ll love it.

Trust me.

If you bought my NEW cookbook, you’ve seen a TON of other pizza crust recipes that I created that are so fun and creative. Like I said, no inflammatory white flour or all-purpose flours here. You won’t find those in my book or on my website. Even gluten-free all-purpose flours are made with white inflammatory flours that cause silent inflammation in so many of my clients, which is why I only used chickpea flour, almond flour and coconut flour in my cookbook and on my blog. These flours are full of nutrients, protein and fiber- plus they’ll help stabilize your blood sugar and keep you satisfied longer since they won’t turn to sugar in your body- like the all-purpose flours do!

I assure you- you’re going to love every single bite.

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo
