For all of you who know me, you know how much I love pizza. My mom even reminds me that I even sleep talk about it. I’ve loved pizza my whole life, and yet it’s been tricky to find the best recipe. Below I’ve listed 3 of the top pizza crust recipes, including the Medical Medium pizza crust, and my specific take on each one.
I’ve been on a quest for the best pizza crust recipe for more than a decade! That’s right. About 12 years. I’ve been gluten-free for over 12 years now, soy-free for about 11.5 years, dairy free most of my life, egg-free most of my life… you get my drift.
With health issues abound, and food groups becoming more and more restricted (yes, every year or so, another food group or two falls out to the way side), and I have to start my journey all over again.
This, along with my increasing cravings for great easy recipes filled with nutrients from real, tasty food fueled my quest to find THE PERFECT ONE, so that I never have to search again!
Cue the quest for the best pizza crust.
I’ve searched high and low, traveled near and far, scoured the freezer department at all of the major grocery stores, tried a plethora of recipes, only to be sorely disappointed each time.
One fit the bill.
Yes, alas, I was ever grateful to Simple Mills for inventing their pizza crust recipe at a moderately affordable rate. Lo and behold, one can substitute the egg for aquafaba (that’s a fancy term for chickpea juice), and get a great consistency, but for me, the flavor left more to be desired.
After what seemed like hundreds…
After what seemed like hundreds of recipes, but probably closer to three or five dozen recipes, plus ample tries on my own to come up with the best pizza dough, I was left at a loss.
All the rage!
The next rage was the new potato crust pizza crust. (That’s the one where you steam the potato, then grate it down and form a ball, then flatten it out and bake it.)
What I liked about the potato pizza crust was that it tasted alive. For those of you who have tried raw foods and recipes, you know what I’m talking about. It tasted so fresh and this made the cells dance in my body.
However, at the end of the day, it still tasted more like a potato and less like a pizza crust. For me, it didn’t have that je ne sais quois I needed it to have.
All hope was lost until…
Until Medical Medium came to my rescue! There is a perfected pizza dough recipe, and I am happy to share it with you today!
This pizza dough recipe is all vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, vegetarian, paleo, pegan, and packed with delicious nutrients to delight your palate.
Medical Medium Pizza Crust Recipe
- 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and steamed
- 3 tbsp arrowroot powder/starch
- 3 tbsp coconut flour/powder
- 1/2 tsp dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
First, peel and steam the sweet potatoes. When done, mash them with a fork or whisk (or use your hands, to-may-toe, to-mah-toe). Add in the other ingredients and stir evenly with fork, whisk, or fingers until it looks like a dough.
Lay the crust onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 20 minutes at 400F.
Next, add your pizza sauce and toppings of your choice. (Pictured above are cherry tomatoes, arugula, and basil.) Bake another 10 minutes. Top off with any finishing garnishes or toppings. Enjoy!
