Dr Jockers Comments:

Pizza was one of my all-time favorite foods growing up. I would always ask for it for my birthday. I have barely touched pizza in the last 10 years until now!!

Coconut flour is a low-carb, fiber rich flour source. It bakes differently than typical wheat or even almond flour. You typically need more eggs and butter than the other flours because the coconut flour soaks it up.

We added garlic and oregano to the pizza crust to add anti-microbial, anti-oxidant rich nutrients. The grass-fed butter and or ghee adds butyric acid which is a powerful anti-inflammatory fat as well as key anti-oxidants and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). CLA strengthens our immune system and improves fat burning.

Pasture-raised eggs are rich in phophatydlcholine, which is a key nutrient for healthy brain and nervous system function. Eggs are also great sources of clean protein and anti-oxidants such as retinol and vitamin E.

You will love this crust! You can add in some organic tomato sauce and grass-fed raw cheese along with pizza herb seasoning for a traditional plain pizza. Add whatever toppings you like such as mushrooms, bell peppers, anchovies, onions, etc. Enjoy!

    I know raw milk cheese is healthier than regular pasteurized cheese. My question is, when cooking/baking cheese doesn’t this negate the raw aspect of cheese?

    • Dr. Jockers June 1, 2015 at 5:24 am #

      Yes it can damage the enzymes and probiotics, but often bacillus coagulans is used as a fermentation starter for cheese and B coagulans can survive high heat environments.

    I am unsure how much coconut flour to use. A quarter cup + 2 tablespoons. Is this two ways to measure? Or add them together?

    • Dr. Jockers July 9, 2015 at 9:54 am #

      Yes that is correct Bonnie! Add them together

    Hello and thank you for the great website and recipes! I started the LCHF life style this spring and can’t believe how much it has changed my health! Like you DR., pizza was one of my favorite meals and i haven’t had a traditional pizza since spring of this year – so about 4 months! I have been hunting for a LCHF recipe – and here it is! A friend shared a cauliflower pizza crust recipe with me – which I just made this week (very long process to make) and it was rejected by my 12 year old who begged me – please! don’t ever make it again 🙁 and i have to agree with her – it was not worth the almost 2 hour prep time. My soul purpose for going on the WWW today was to find a coconut flour crust pizza recipe and here it is! Thank you! You just may have saved our weekly mother& daughter movie night! ♥

      That is so great to hear LJ! Very fulfilling to know we have been able to bless your family like this!

    I just made this pizza and it’s delicious! I let it set for 10 minutes before rolling out! A winner!

    How about garbanzo flour? Wouldn’t that add a less sweet flavor and augment the protein?

    • Dr. Jockers November 6, 2016 at 6:38 am #

      That is possible Elizabeth, but garbanzo flour is higher in starchy carbs. I wanted to make a low-carb pizza crust to keep blood sugar levels most stable.

    Can I use a replacement for the eggs?

  7. Rick August 19, 2017 at 9:28 am #

    1/4 cup coconut flour must be a typo. I checked the original recipe and it says 1/4 cup also, but that makes soup. What’s the real amount?

    • Dr. Jockers August 19, 2017 at 2:31 pm #

      Hey Rick, Yes ¼ cup + 2 tbsp. Coconut flour is very absorbent but if it’s not thick enough you can try adding more of course! Letting it sit you may notice is thickens up as well.

      Blessings!

        Ok! Thanks!

    What about a buckwheat crust?

    • Dr. Jockers August 21, 2017 at 9:45 am #

      Hey Joti, The goal with this recipe was to provide a grain-free alternative. Buckwheat would be considered a grain which is not something I recommend consuming on a regular basis.

    I’m in the uk & I am never sure how much your Cups weigh, as I find there are different quantities when I look online for it.
    Can you tell me how much either in grams or ounces a cup weighs please?

    • Margot August 27, 2017 at 4:14 pm #

      Kath, a cup is the same as eight ounces.
