How to make a GAPS pizza recipe
This recipe is inspired from the Heal your Gut Cookbook and is one of the easiest homemade pizza recipes I have ever seen.
By combining a few simple ingredients in a bowl and scooping it onto a baking sheet, you have a delicious, gut-friendly pizza crust. After about 20 minutes of cooking, you can add any pizza toppings (we love the traditional pepperoni) and have dinner ready in a few minutes.
It really is as simple as 1,2,3.
When it comes to pizza toppings, there are a lot of options.
The recipe in this article is for the traditional pepperoni and cheese pizza, but there are so many options for toppings that are just as delicious and GAPS diet approved.
Some of my favorite pizza toppings are:
- Cheese and black olives
- Crumbled sausage and green bell peppers
- Sun dried tomato and basil
- Leftover meats such as shredded chicken or ground beef
- Sauteed vegetables like onion, eggplant, zucchini or bell peppers
This range of pizza toppings will help you enjoy a healthy version of pizza with this delicious pizza crust. I found that having recipes like this on hand really helps me be successful when I am on the GAPS diet.

Tips in making GAPS pizza recipe
Making pizza doesn’t need to be overwhelming. In fact, it is the perfect family activity! Here are a few tips in making this recipe GAPS approved and kid-friendly:
- This pizza recipe is perfect for anyone avoiding grains or is gluten free.
- Keep in mind that commercial coconut flour has too much fiber, so the coconut flour that you use must be homemade in order to let your gut heal.
- For your marinara sauce, make sure there is no added sugar or additives. Stick to a simple recipe with just tomatoes and herbs like this brand.
- When it comes to adding cheese on the GAPS diet, always try to use raw harder cheese as this is easiest to digest.
- Use a ladle or large spoon to scoop the crust mixture onto the serving tray in order to get that round crust shape in the oven.
- For your soft animal fat, I like to use lard if possible to help bind the ingredients. Other options are chicken fat or ghee.

How do you make the best crust for pizza?
Pizza crust must be made in a way that will be strong enough to hold the toppings. That is why I always cook my homemade pizza on each side for ten minutes so that the dough is cooked through evenly.
Another important part to making a proper crust for pizza is to mix the ingredients together really well. Since homemade coconut flour can clump together easily, I like to mix my ingredients first with a wooden spoon.
With this crust, it will not have the consistency that traditional pizza dough will have. As a result, It’s easiest if you scoop the pizza crust with a ladle (or some other large spoon) into the baking sheet. This makes the least amount of mess and the most even distribution for baking.
Almond flour vs coconut flour
Almond flour can be an important part in cooking with the GAPS diet, but not necessarily for this recipe. Not only do you need to plan ahead and soak the almonds before cooking, but the amount of fiber in the almond flour is tough on stage 1 of the GAPS diet.
In my opinion, homemade coconut flour will give you a pizza dough that is much more similar to a traditional pizza as well. It’s much easier to make (in my opinion) and tastes amazing with the rest of the ingredients.
What to serve with pizza
Whenever I serve pizza, there’s usually a time for celebration, which means I bring out all of the best foods! Here are a few of my favorites to serve with pizza:
If you like to plan ahead, it is possible to cook extra pizzas for an easy snack or quick lunch. Keep reading to learn how to store this GAPS approved pizza…
How to store leftover pizza
If you have pizza leftover (and that is a big if), you can simply refrigerate it and reheat it later!
Simply store your GAPS homemade pizza in an airtight glass container and reheat in the oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
Perfect for a quick lunch or afternoon snack.
