Pizza. I don’t know a single person who does not love it and I know for those on the Paleo Autoimmune diet, it has to be tough to give it up.  Well, think again.

When flipping through the pages of Mediterranean Paleo Cooking by Caitlin Weeks, Nabil Boumrar, and Diane Sanfilipio,  I was seriously impressed by the variety of delicious recipes and how each recipe has a easy chart sharing allergen/dietary restriction.   You will find recipes that are aip-friendly, low FODMAP, low carb and so much more inside this gem of a book.

Just a few of the recipes that caught my eye are the strawberry coffee cake, paleo moussaka, paleo pasta and creme caramel.  But of course, it was the aip pizza crust that called to me like a siren.

I’m going to say buy this book today! Seriously,  you’re going to get over 150 recipes, two 30-day meal plans and a helpful shopping list.  

Now back to that aip pizza crust, I decided to get a little fun with the toppings and it turned out just delicious! I know that you will love it as much as I did!

  1. Preheat the oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  5. Set the dough on the lined baking sheet and press it into a circle that's about 1/4 to 1/3 inch thick.

  1. What a brilliant topping idea! I bet that was fantastic! I really want this book! It looks like they’ve done such a great job identifying various dietary needs!

  2. I would never have thought to put those flavors together on a pizza, I bet it tastes amazing, I would love to try some of the recipes in this cookbook, especially the one on the cover. YUM!

    It’s getting close to your cookbook coming out Kelly, I can’t wait… your blog and recipes.

  3. The crust sounds very tasty and I am going to give this a try. Never tried any fruit pizza before and all of your recipes that I have made so far are yummy so I trust that this will be that way too! Thanks for all you do Kelly <3

  4. Looks delicious! Pizza has been the hardest food to give up (or in other words, what I eat when I cheat). I would love to try this one.

  5. Pizza is the thing I miss the most and many of the crusts I have tried have been less than exciting ๐Ÿ™‚ This one looks like it would work well.
    Also, my favorite ethnic food is Mediterranean, as well as Middle Eastern. I would love to have the book! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thanks for your encouragement on this food journey.

  6. I am always on the hunt for a good AIP pizza base (for me), we only ever have homemade pizzas now, the men in my life much prefer them. Living in south east queensland in australia is akin to a mediterranean climate so this book would be AWESOME. Keep up the great work Kelly

  7. This sounds delicious…and easy. Will try this this weekend because I am so hungry for pizza and have not had any for so long. Really though, I will probably make two of these. ๐Ÿ™‚ And a chance to win a new book is always a plus!

  8. This looks so delicious, and since I’m going to be starting the AIP once I finish my non-AIP staples, this comes at a great time! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  9. This recipe for the pizza sounds interesting – and the topping mix is interesting as well. I think the topic of the cookbook is interesting as well – it’s always interesting to see how easy it is to modify food for Paleo.

  10. Seriously, how do so many people with gut dysbiosis tolerate tapioca starch? It’s enjoying a huge uptrend right now in AIP recipes and it KILLS me (as do most pure starches). Very creative food making here! thanks for sharing and i’ll continue the hunt for a safe starch. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Question for you…do you think I could substitute egg(s) for the gelatin and hot water and if so, how many? I was on AIP for quite some time and now working with a new Naturopathic doctor, she is having me eat grain-free, vegan with the exception of 4-5 eggs/week. Thanks so much!

  12. I LOVE this recipe!! Thank you so much – such an easy & money-saving recipe for an addition to meals for the week – really helps w/ my busy schedule XOXO

  13. What a great recipe! I replace tapioca flour with Cassava flour and it worked well. Instead of parchment paper I used a cast iron pan lightly sprayed with olive oil. This crust was a perfect pizza texture and I was able to slice it and eat it with my hands just like regular pizza. I loved this recipe. I had some left over crust and made an apple, bacon, cinnamon tart. So crazy good! I really love this dough! Thank you for sharing with us!
